Ring a Week

Polymer Clay

I was hoping this would have more of a stained glass / inlay feel.... the back side looks maybe like an undersea spongy creature & the top looks like an ancient relic. Now thinking, it would have been cool to make the band detachable so you could decide which side to wear (note to self)... :) Maybe burry a tiny magnet in the center of the ring & burry one in the center of the band. How cool, & then you could flip sides.

Ring a Week

Polymer Clay, Resin, Beads

It's been a while since I've done a good ol' fashion bead weave. Once I had several circles of beads, I finished her up, squished her inside a polymer frame & smothered her with resin, I thought it interesting, the outer most layer of amber beads almost disappeared in the clear resin. Good for a floating feel. I would like to make beads like this & string them for a necklace, shocking...:)

Ring a Week

Polymer Clay, Seed Beads, Top Coat

I know I say this every week, but I'm going to use this concept for a necklace. I'm actually doing it now :). I plan to connect 3 pods vertically for a pendant. Or maybe connect 5 for a bib? These are so much fun to make!

Ring a Week

Polymer Clay, Shrink Plastic, Seed Beads

Well, this is not what I had envisioned when I started....but a finished ring is better than no ring?
