Chocolate Mountain Pendant

Why Chocolate Mountain Pendant? Because I’ve just been looking up how to temper chocolate, and that’s where my mind is right now.

Why tempering chocolate? Because we’ve been binge watching British cooking shows, and I’m highly suggestible.

The Chocolate Mountain Pendant is part of a series of polymer clay creations I made using a made-it-up-myself method of slicing sheets of clay I covered with a melange of colored additives and putting them together in new ways for no other reason than I liked the way they looked. I backed them with black polymer clay for stability, and this is one of the results. I’ve added a copper fastener for hanging, brown leather cord and copper findings to finish.

I’m asking $30 for the Chocolate Mountain Pendant, free shipping within the continental US. If you’re interested, let me know in the Comments.

The Seamstress’s Collage Pendant

 

Are you looking for a gift for someone who sews?

I’ve taken the smallest of stretched canvas as the base for this collage. The background color I chose was black, which made the dressmaker’s dummy stamps in white on the background seem almost ghostly. I embossed the scissors stamp with gold. Finally, I found the smallest Mother Of Pearl infant buttons from my vintage stock and applied them. Then I fixed two tiny gold-colored eye screws in the top and threaded thin black satin ribbon fastened with a gold magnetic clasp.  Total length is about 28″.

Op Art Collage Brooches

 

1-1/2 in square collage composed of hand-painted wood squares, original watercolor art and hand-made polymer clay bead.
1-1/2 inch wearable art collage composed of painted and dyed wood, batik cloth and a polymer clay bead, all hand-made by me. Pin on back.

I love working small and I like working with squares. I enjoy the way different paint and ink media look when applied to raw wood. So the balsa squares that hobbyists use are a natural pallet for me. Once I have the base colors, I go to the drawer that I’ve labeled “In Progress” to find components that I’ve started but haven’t figured out what to do with. Watercolors that I’m working on…Polymer clay beads that I’m creating…and bits and pieces of whatever else is at hand. They’re portable canvases, truly Multi-media Wearable Art.

I’m selling them for $15 each. Shipping is free, domestically. Outside the US, let’s talk. I take Paypal or Google Wallet. If you’re interested, let me know in the comments.
