FYI: This deviation has been moved to my "new" dA ~missimoinsane-crafts while this channel remains my main I have created a side channel for my crafts.
Ok so I finally got round to baking my polymer charms I made including the pac-man charms, of which I have now turned into a charm bracelet so I uploaded a WIP and now I’m uploading two final piece pictures one with bracelet off and the other with bracelet on.
I have simply baked these charmed and then created a bracelet with double link chain and 8mm jump rings and a lobster clasp. I have not glazed these charms nor do I intend too. I did (before baking) draw on eyes with a permanent marker although I am thinking I should go over them with black acrylic paint – tomorrow.
Pac-Man Polymer Bracelet
Work In Progress: Braclet Finished, On: Braclet Finished, Off:
Ps. I would say that this charm bracelet took around 3 hours to make the charms, 40 minutes to bake them, 10 minutes to cool down and then a further hour to curl the headpins, add the jump rings and attach to the bracelet + lobster claw fastener. So all in all I would say this project takes less than 5 hours to do in honesty! Plus I am a beginner so a more experienced person may be able to get this done in 2-3hours!! Maybe!
My final in metals 3. It is a hair bun holder (will post picture in use and close up of details later)
Copper sheet cut and hammered to shape and texture. Copper wire bent and twisted and textured. Chain (not made by me ) Wet packed Enameled copper bezeled and soldered bezel on then set enameled piece. I free handed the design in the wet packing so that I didn't have to focus on the details and it could be more abstract/simplified. The copper was dipped a couple times in liver of sulfur for a few seconds each time to give it the color it is. Love the slight rainbow effect, granted it tried to rub off so I played with that and dunked it once again after I rubbed a little off.
This was a fun project. I am depressed I am not able to take metals next semester for it didn't fit into my schedule however I am looking forward to returning in the future. I feel this is one of my strongest pieces. I have been wanting to make a piece for the hair for a while now that would embody my character secretly somehow. Granted she is present in body not referenced as I would have liked it, but I am still learning how to reference loosely
Suinarra is a sea elf character of mine that wears her hair up most of the time due to its length and wavy nature, mostly in a bun. So I originally wanted to be a replica of her bun stick that was in the shape of a long spiral shell. But due to my lack of carving skills that hasn't been possible "yet" . Her piece has a dangle to it and I really wanted to incorporate that piece of scrap as a dangle.
Also if you can think of a better name I am open to suggestions
A Domo bracelet I made for one of my locals for his daughters friend for Christmas. Super easy and super cute. Made completely by hand out of high quality polymer clay, the teeth and eyes were painted on with acrylics.
A big batch of paper star earrings I made for last weekend's craft fair. I've put all remaining paper star jewelry up in my online shop. I'm also uploading other items left over from the craft fair, but it'll take a while, it's terribly time consuming.
(there's a tutorial for how I varnish these lucky stars, you can find the link in my journal)
This handmade sushi charm bracelet looks good enough to eat! The bracelet consists of sushi inspired charms on a sterling silver chain, finished with swarovski crystals. Each charm is delicately hand sculpted from polymer clay, then carefully hand painted and glazed for a shiny finish.
No moulds or stencils are used for any piece of Little Miss Delicious jewellery, so each one is completely unique!
