A Paperweight and more Pendants!

This paperweight is totally inspired by Chris Kapono, she does a lot of stuff like this and I think it is all so cool. I think mine turned out pretty cool, not bad for a beginner!
And 3 pendants. I don't even wear jewelry and I am shocked at how easily these just come together, polymer clay must release some creativity hormone I think. I almost feel like if I pick the embellishments before hand the rest reveals itself....or maybe I'm putting too much into this, they could be really bad lol I do love adding embellishments and am starkly aware that I need to make my bag of tricks larger!

My First Piece

My first piece of jewelry and my first piece from polymer clay (that i actually baked lol). It was poorly planned and I had to improvise on the hanger and used (are you sitting down?) aluminum. I need a better variety of wires obviously...and I really need to work on wiring in general but for a first time without any practice or even trying to learn to wire, it's not bad is it? But I love those pearl ex powders, those are too cool. Was surprised how different the color ended up being, too, wow.

I've made my own texture sheets and technically this would be my first project being as it's the first thing I've actually baked anything. I was surprised how much the temperature in my toaster oven fluctuates, too, that is wicked crazy. I used Sculpey Superflex/Bake and Bend, it was so easy to do and now I have some completely random textures, cannot wait to see how they look on clay.

OK, I like this polymer clay!

Finally managed to get my polyclay out of the package just now and here what I did super quick.

This stuff is so easy to work with I love it! I need to to make some textures for myself and I don't like that this has no texture so it's not getting baked- still have to check my oven temp anyways lol

Here's my dragonfly model I'm working on....need texture for it, too! I need texture, that's all there is to it. ignore my messy tools....they won't touch the polyclay!
