I made these earrings at a silver clay mould-making workshop I took recently. My silver clay guru Jenn Jevons taught the course, in which we learned to use moulding compound to take impressions of various textures, buttons, objects, etc. that could then be used to create something out of metal clay. These earrings are basically a copy of a brass button Jenn brought to the workshop.
If you’re interested in learning more about creating jewelry with metal clay, I’ve written about how I make customized charm pendants with silver clay here.
Warm thanks to two bloggers who generously sent many new readers my way this past week:
- Rhonda of Rhonda’s Creative Life did a wonderful round-up of all the blogs she’s featured over the year, including mine. Her list is a great opportunity to find some fantastic new blogs to follow. Thanks for doing all that work to put that long list together, Rhonda!
- Also, Margo of Creating in the Gap gave me a great shout-out on her popular blog, calling my plaid coat gorgeous! Her stunning red version of the same coat really ain’t bad, either! Thanks for all the great inspiration, Margo.
And look, my Booby Trapped Coat made it to the home page of BurdaStyle, so it’s been a really great week on the sewing and blogging front. I hope your first week of 2016 has been just as lovely.
Thanks for stopping by!
