...a Necklace

I haven't made a Necklace in a very long time. I was a bit fed up with my whole polymer clay journey last night and this morning and I felt like giving up really. But when I got home after work I decided to give making a Necklace out of my newst Pendant a try. I'm pretty happy with the result. Not sure though where I am going with my polymer clay though. It's also very warm at the moment which makes it hard to work'll see what will happen in the upcoming week, if I feel like continuing.

Scraps turning pretty

Just dipping my fingers into my leftover clay bits.
It's getting hot and the Fimo is getting sticky! I wonder what I'll do when the summer comes!

My first order! Hurrayyy...

I received a phone call from a woman today who bought a few beads and things from me this week asking me if I had any beads without varnish. I said: "well, not on sale, but I can make you some!" And so we got talking and she asked me if I wouldn't be able to make her some black and red flower beads and I beamed! "Sure!!!" I can do pretty much anything, hahaha...

I'm so excited. I'm so excited that I messed up a big chunk of red and black in a hurry to get to work (even though she said I shouldn't hurry)!! I wanted to blend some colour and screwed it up completly. So much for patience! I'll have to go buy more red clay on Friday, no big deal. Yeah, this is great news for me and makes me very happy!

Maybe in the future?

This is a bead I made two nights ago. I only have this one, it was a test run but I like it so much I think I'll make more!

I wish I had more time (and energy) to work more on my creativity, on claying! "Real" work just kinda gets in the way, except on pay day *smile*. I hope there comes a time when I can earn more money with my beads and things and wont have to go working outside of home as much. To have all the time I want and need to just sit and play with my fimo would be awesome! *dreaming*

I'm "it"!

I have been tagged to a little game by rani and here is how it goes:

I have to share 7 facts about my self and then "tag" 7 other people on their blogs. For now, here are the 7 things about me. I'll do the tagging a bit later!

1) I'm a pop-corn addict. When I'm down or just "had it" I buy a bag of popcorn and eat it alone infront of the t.v.

2) I've stopped eating meat at age 18. I'm a vegetarian now for 14 years.

3) I am a lonesome cowgirl and don't like going to courses to learn something new hence I teach my self the things I want to learn from books, internet or intuition and trial and error.

4) I was born in Switzerland but moved to Canada at age 10 with my mom and siblings. 10 years later I returned to my hometown wanting to do a 3 year apprenticeship and go back to Canada. But I'm still here in Switzerland....after 13 years.

5) I don't wear any black clothes any more, after years of only wearing red and black.

6) I wear glasses when I sit at the computer, watch t.v or read a book.

7) I had 3mm short blond hair for years along with a septum piercing. The hair has grown now though and back to brown and the piercing is out.

There is hope!

I've been wondering for a long time how others are able to make beautiful plates, bottles etc. from canes without getting it all messed up (like I do!). So last night I tried another sugar "shaker" glass thingy. I used a square cane I made a while back and thought it might be easier using a square cane. I wasn't very happy with the result though, everything kinda messed up like usual.

After finishing it I went to check out to see if they might have some information on how to do this properly and found some interesting things. So I tried again and made a smaller salt-shaker out of a flower cane I made on Monday.
By no means is it what I would call "Perfect" but it's getting closer...hahaha. I really really like this and wont give up just yet! I'm exited to try some more!

I love Fimo (polymerclay)!! It amazes me time and time again how much you can make out of Fimo, how endless the posibilites of creations are and all the great things that come out of it. I love experimenting, I love playing around with it, trying out new techniques and reading up on what others are doing. (Yeah, I'm writing this on a fimo-high and have some new things in the oven as I write *smile*) is great! You do need time to read through everything but it has so much information on it, great tips and tricks, go have a look if you haven't already! I was so discouraged yesterday but after reading some things on there to make my life a bit easier I'm back up on the motivation train.

And off I go to admire my new things.....

Big ones

Two pretty big rolled up beads. They are best to use as a pendant on a leather band. I can't wait to wear one!

rolling them up!

I continued with the fun idea of rolling up beads. The last batch I made out of scrap clay was not only fun to do but also looked pretty good. So I took it a step further and used "new" clay and tried out some colour combinations. I rolled different colours through the pasta machine together and just kinda played around with it. It's really fun to make. After the beads were baked, the small red ones actually reminded me of pasta itself, they are very thin and even sound like hard pasta in my hand.
I put them up for sale to see if any one is interested in this sort of bead. I wonder....
