A Very Crystal Clay Christmas...

I was going to do a whole bunch of Christmas jewellery updates, but I was so excited with my very first set that I just had to post it now!

Once in a while I really do get a brainwave while designing jewellery, and I think this is it. I managed to include a fair number of techniques here: epoxy clay, wire-work, and stamping.

I'm so proud of this set. Can you tell? *big grin*

Sigh.... I'll have to make another set for myself to keep! Either way, you can buy the set at my store here:

Stamped Crystal Clay

I've been hopping up and down for most of the week, simply because I couldn't wait to photograph my new creations!

Apoxie Sculpt and Crystal Clay are the same thing, just different brand names, and this week I've discovered that they go extremely well with rubber stamps, ink, and pigment powder. Now I can make jewellery that is even more customizable than ever before.

As you can see, the pigment adds a metallic shimmer to the Crystal Clay.

I like to call this my WTF owl. He looks so cute. And confused.

I can now make personalized family jewellery!

I love, love LOVE my alphabet stamps!

Yep. I've been in a jewellery making FRENZY lately! Anyways, my December (aka Christmas!!!) commissions are quickly filling up, but there are a few spots left. So if you want a custom-made piece for Christmas, the deadline is the 12th in order to gaurantee delivery in time for Christmas.

Again, you can contact me on facebook at my page here: https://www.facebook.com/BeadedBohemian (if you haven't 'liked' it yet, please do!)

Or, on my official website here: http://www.bonanza.com/booths/Beaded_Bohemian#/?s=2

(As soon as I get a better lighting situation I'll post a tutorial on how to stamp and add pigment to expoxy clay, pronto!)

Note: Apologies on the delay with the Gift Guide... I have most of it written out and then I had an attack of "why-are-you-telling-people-what-to-buy-they-are-perfectly-capable-of-picking-their-own gifts". It'll be out soon. ish.

New Products (and just in time for Christmas too!)

Ahhh, I've been so impatient to update my blog with all my new creations!

The problem with winter is the lack of good lighting for jewellery photography. Luckily, today was quite sunny, so I immediately grabbed my camera and went right to work.

I can now make.....

Stud earrings!


Pocketwatch necklaces! (Batteries included).


And my favourite.... stamped Crystal Clay necklaces! (tutorial forthcoming)

Just in time for Christmas, folks! All of these make fabulous gifts (I highly recommend the pocketwatch necklaces. Vintage, unique, and very 'in' this year).
Well what are you waiting for! Run to my website and shop, shop, shop!
Note on shipping: Any orders placed by the 18th, WILL arrive on time for Christmas.
