New Polymer Clay Bracelets

(105 days to go until the polymer clay cruise. I’ve paid the deposit, and am now looking at flights.)

Yesterday I went to a fundraising party-thing upstairs at the Brighton Bead Shop, in celebration of their 25th anniversary and in aid of their chosen charity the RNLI.  I think I’ve been shopping with the BBS for nearly all of those 25 years (it was by mail order in the olden days), and they were one of the main reasons I originally went to live in Brighton. They seem to be doing better than ever, and have now started running classes in making jewellery (click here for their facebook page).  They had cake and  jewellery for sale – what a great combination! After I’d availed myself of both, I went downstairs to do my ‘proper’ bead shopping. So today I’ve been in the superShed playing with my new supplies, and combining them with my existing polymer clay beads.

I wanted to make some simple adjustable bracelets, so I made some from wire links…

…and others were even simpler and just threaded onto elastic.

Polymer Clay Pendants

These are the polymer clay pendants that I’ve been working on recently. None of them are finished yet, but I should be able to turn them into proper pendants this weekend.

The photos below show the back and front of the pendant that is closest to being finished. I’ve put two heart-shaped pieces back to back, and have then covered up the sides (where the scrap clay showed through) by sticking on a strip of blue/white stripes. All it needs now is for a hole to be drilled through the top:

New Polymer Clay Creations

I’ve been away on holiday for a week, but just before I went away I finished photographing a collection of the most recent items I’ve been making:

At the moment nobody seems interested in buying my jewellery (or at least, not on Ebay), so I’m a bit scared of spending time and money on putting them on a craft stall and then finding out ‘for real’ that nobody wants to buy my stuff.

On the other hand, if I don’t start showing these things to people then I definitely won’t be able to sell them. I need to bite the bullet and go to a few galleries and try to do a craft stall. Eek.
