Some finished items.

Last week I made a quick necklace for a friend to cheer her up. I Forgot to get photos myself, so excuse my friend’s pictures due to lighting being poor.

Today I made time to finish off a couple of items and make a friend a pendant, which has special meaning to her.

Firstly I finished off some cufflinks for Richard (pair of Darth Vader, pair of TARDIS). Mostly just varnishing.

I also used left over black clay for a pair of black dragons, which will get a red background and become cufflinks for Richard.

Made a cat pendant (blue background, black cat) for Nat as well. Also made myself a couple (purple background, black cat & black background, green cat), the green cat broke sadly so will have to redo that (the epoxy didn’t stick it properly and it was too curved).

Finished off a couple of Y Ddraig Goch brooches, one for Nat and one for my Mum. Unsure which worked best, think I might add some more black to the right hand one to define it better.

The pendants need bails adding, but otherwise are complete 🙂 not bad seeing as the cats started out not being too good (original baked backgrounds were not quite right shape wise or a little warped).

In my previous update I’d shown some of the experiments with polymer clay.

First some cufflinks:

I’m pretty happy with how these have turned out after some cleaning up and epoxy. The tardis ones need some painting to pick details out and then just need some varnish.

If you remember the purple backed tardis from the last post as shown below:

TARDIS pendant and black cat on purple pendant. Both need some finishing work doing.

I wasn’t really happy with how it turned out, due to the method I used to make the shape of the backing. I’ve since ordered some moulds and cutting shapes to make the size better fitting to cabochon frames.

A bit of work though led to this:

I’m much happier with it as a ring.

Finally I made a couple of other rings:

I quite like how the darth vader ring came out and the two stones rings, one tigers eye, the other a lovely amethyst.

I’ve still to finish the Welsh dragon brooches and a couple of cat pendants.
All for now 🙂
