Polymer Clay Embroidery Technique

Hello Friends

Today I'm here with a fun technique that results in some very beautiful and intricate designs.

Aren't they gorgeous..? And trust me they are not at all tough to make. They are very easy to make and looks like you have done a lot of work and effort on it. 

I started with a heart shaped bezel and used Ruby pardo clay for creating this pendant. I started with creating a dome shaped base on the bezel and then I created this roses using my needle tool from a sheet of same Ruby clay.. 

I made a bunch of roses and filled almost three fourth of the bezel and to finish off I added some dot details on the rest of the area. 

Now for the next pendant, I used an Owl shaped bezel pendant. I started with orange premo clay on the base as a dome shape. 
Then I created this petal shape from different color clay and added design with needle tool to finish off the flowers. 

Again I added some dot details to finish off the design. 

Now for this, i wanted to create the whole pendant base for guys who do not wanna use the antique bezels. For this I created a dome shape with teal color clay and cut out a circle shape a little bigger then the dome shape as the base of the pendant. 

I also added an eye pin to create a hook for the pendant. Then I rolled out circles from the dark blue clay and sticked it all around the dome shape I created. 
To add sparkle to this piece, I added Swarovski Crystal Beads all around, on the circles, and that finished the pendant. 
To add the embroidery I mixed white and silver clay and created a beautiful deisgn and added dot details as finishing touches.

Elegant Embellishments June GDT kit projects | 2nd video

Hello friends,

Welcome to the second and last video, where I share projects made using the June GDT kit from Elegant Embellishments..
It was so much fun to using these kits and I made some really awesome projects.. I loved that with these kits you can create variety of projects, either use them for making jewelry, danglers or on card, mixed media, album etc..

And today's project is really close to my heart.. I loved all the 3 projects that I made, doesn;t mean I do not like the other projects I create, but these are just precious.. (You know what I mean)...

So lets start with this very beautiful NOTEBOOK I created from scratch.. Its a three fold notebook that measures 5by3.5by1.75 inches
The front of the notebook is decorated using MFT stamps, dies and stencil..
And the dangler is created using the Unicorn Charm kit and Shaker charm kit from Elegant Embellishments. I am in love with this notebook..

For creating my dangler, which also acts as closure for this notebook, I used lamost all the charms in the unicorn charm kit.. 
I started using a silver chain and added lobster clasp on one end and on the other end I added all the charms using jump rings.. 

I used 3 unicorns - 2 small and 1 large, charm to make this dangler.. I also used the shaker charms and the rainbow charms to make the whole dangler..

When you open one flap of the notebook, you will find a shaker surprise to which I added a Unicorn charm as shaker material along with other sequins and confetti.. 
And on the outside of the shaker, I added this Unicorn charm in rainbow color using some strong liquid glue, as I felt this area looked a little empty... 

And the inside has 2 removable notebooks that I created using copy papers.. These notebooks are just hanging there by some paper enclosures, which can be easily removed once the notebooks are filled.. 

I love how beautifully the Unicorn Charm kit fits in place for this notebook.. 

P.S - This notebook is not my original idea, its from some other artist, but I did make few changes to make it a little personalized.. 

I also created this elegant bracelet using the silver charms from Unicorn Charm Kit and one of the multi colored shaker charm from Shaker Charm kit.. I love the simple and elegant look of this bracelet.. I could have added beads to it, but I chose not keeping all the focus of the charms and kept it simple and that's its beauty..

Last I created this very classic pair of earring, in white and gold combo, a very classic color combination.. You can not see the loop of the shaker charm as I chopped it out and added bead caps using some glue.. And this is not my original idea.. Its from one of our DT members, Tammy Sims.. She created this beautiful stick pins using these charm and I just used her idea to create this beautiful pair of earring..

Polymer Clay - Mokume Gane Technique

Hello crafty friends,

Today I'm here at The Craft Shop Blog sharing a very fun technique using polymer clay called the Mokume Gane Technique.

What's Mokume Gane ?

Mokume Gane  is a Japanese art, a method of manipulating metal to achieve a woodgrain pattern.. Lots of polymer clay artist has borrowed from this art form to create magnificent patterns.. In Mokume Gane technique you do not have to follow any rules, its more of a free technique where you can go with the flow..

In this you create the stripe pattern and then manipulate that pattern using tools to get that fun Mokume Gane pattern. When creating your stack, you always wanna start with atleast 3 different colors - dark, light and a metallic color (I use metallic color to add shine to my pattern)
Today I have used 5 different colors - Orange, Yellow, teal in pearl finish, Silver and Twinkle Twinkle.. 

I created this hollow bead using the mokume gane pattern I made.
And with the same pattern I made this blue necklace below..

 So you can see, you can create completely different jewelry using the same mokume gane patterns.
And the below neck piece have been created using this Stripe Pattern
