We made valentines and valentine jewelry, tonight. We ate chicken noodle soup because Vivi wasn’t feeling well. She persevered to get her valentines ready for school tomorrow. No store-bought cards allowed.
I was asked to cover a box for the neighborhood food drive here in Charlotte. I finished and delivered it today.
I replaced a clasp on Adrianne’s necklace.
I treated myself to a trip to Michael’s.
The sales and coupons and clearance were great! They had molds ($1) and stencils and stamps, oh my! I used my coupon on that UV lamp!
I rubbed my new color-change mica on embossed card stock. ‘Slightly disappointed in this one.
In all, a good day, just the same!
I think I’ve found my “thing” I like to do in polymer clay, at least for now.I love making and embossing these hearts!I’ve made one into a necklace:Finished in gold plate:It’s for sale in my shop!
Alicia and Katy shared my necklace on jtv.com/extra on Wednseday! The hashtag was heavymetal.
On a recent visit to see my grandchildren, I took along some wire, cutters and pliers. Peter James, age nearly nine, made me this “fringe” necklace.
He engineered the closure, too.
(The sticker is a reward from my granddaughter for completing a fairy puzzle while she was teaching. I was Pre-K Karla!!)
The black tassel is by Bead Landing via Michael’s. The gold one is from a supplier I found on eBay. I will have to favorite them, because it is beautiful and was nicely packaged.
The black and gold necklace is in my shop. So is the blue, but I’ll need to update it! (Since I just did!)
is this design from the Quilt Square Girls in West Jefferson, NC. It seems like every time I turn one of their barn quilts into a necklace, that one becomes my favorite!I don’t know the name of this pattern, but it’s very folksy, and I love it!
This style is different than the images under glass that I made originally. These are more of a laminated lucite. They are harder to produce, but they look more like miniature barn quilts to me.
