Silver Metal Clay

Pin It So finally after over a year of thinking and talking about it I finally did a workshop in silver metal clay!!  I've had a starter kit with all the tools needed and a pack of clay for well over a year but was too scared to use it as it's too expensive to waste by not knowing what to do!!!

Anyway I loved using it and I was able to make to necklaces and a pair of earrings.  I will definitely be playing some more in the not too distant future!!!

At last some photos....

Pin It Spent the afternoon playing with the Fimo.  Made my 1st successful skinner blend using orange and yellow, made it into a roll and used slices to cover some beads...  Also had a go at making lentil beads for the first time...


On Saturday I decided to have a go at Mokume Gane for the first time, kept it simple with black, white and silver glitter...  Loved the results!!


And here are some pics of other things I have made over the last few weeks...

New beads...

Pin It Well I've finally managed to get hold of some Fimo varnish so I've just varnished some of the already made beads so they are drying whilst the beads I have just made are chilling in the fridge.  It's really hot and sticky in my house today so my hands were getting really warm and the Fimo was sticking to me!!  Once they have chilled a bit I'll stick some cocktail sticks in to make the holes then it'll be time to cook them!!

I have been making marble effect beads, 1st batch were silver and purple and 2nd batch were black and silver.  My friend has asked me to make her some purple jewellery so the silver and purple ones will be for her.  I've also made a pendant out of the silver and purple.  I'll take some pictures later on or tomorrow....

Where to start...

Pin It Well I'm currently at work so I can't dabble in my new found obsession of making beads from Polymer Clay (Fimo) so thought I would set up this blog so that I can post photos of my work when I have some to share!!
