Hairless cat

Look who have pitched in my cupboard - a hairless cat Filimon!
A crochet toy around 13 inches long.
If it hadn't been for our cat (donskoy sphinx) who passed away recently, I would not have dared to make this toy...coz it's really finger twisting work to do.

This small hairless cat lives in my cupboard. He is a very shy guy...

Embroidered bracelet Indian Sun

And one more trial of making jewelry not related to polymer clay!!!
Embroidered bracelet approximately 7" long, 2 1/4" wide.
All three cabochons are also handmade from resin colored with Inca gold paints.
Yeah and the name is INDIAN SUN.

Batik+resin=my favorite combination

It's really my favorite combination: inks with polymer clay and resin, which gives deep and shiny effect to all the items. I don't know how to name all these items, I just wanted to try something like this without any significant plan for them to use or sell.
So here they are jewelry sets of necklaces, earrings and broaches in Batik technique.

Fun with pixel art

Just recently got to know about fusible beads (perler), and could not resist to try them. Though it's mostly for child skills development needs (starting from 6 years old), but as long as my son is still small for this I'm doing it on his's a joke of coz!
I also saw many adults doing interesting items with such beads, including jewelry and other decorations...
To start with I made these things...and a bulldozer is a must of coz, as long as we are crazy about heavy machines!!!

A small celebration of joy for a crafty soul

Yesterday got the parcel with tutorials from a very talented polymer clay jewelry prof Iris Mishly.
Was so excited to get some gifts from her, especially the flower stencil. I'm very eager to start working on the projects, but still trying to collect all necessary materials...which is very difficult to find here in India.

Initially I was very excited, but after opening one of CD boxes I squealed with happiness, I didn't expect to get more gifts... The most precious among all were pendants made by sweet and touching. I'm very grateful to her.

Jewelry blast

All these weeks I'm trying hard to make jewelry items from all the polymer clay beads and cabochons which I made long time ago. This time I started to experiment with micro macrame, and it excited me a lot so I'll certainly continue with it.

Jewelry set GOLDEN CURLS : necklace and bracelet 
sizes: necklace - approx 23", bracelet - 7,5"
Batik technique.
I decided to play hooligan and placed the clasp on the side (search for it ;))
The toggle on the bracelet is also a kind of a focal point of it :)
