So, I decided to make a little figurine, not really for any reason other than that I was feeling rather bored and useless, and needed something to occupy my time. I haven’t yet decided on her name, but all in all, I think she turned out rather lovely.
It’s not exactly the best, but as my first try working with these absolutely gorgeous globe rings, I’m pretty happy.
Inside there is seaweed, a sandy bottom, coral, and a lovely mermaid curled up to nap with her best fishy pal.
There are things I would do differently in the future…like making the mermaid smaller, but for this ring, it will be fine. ❤
Next you want to add another (much) shorter length of chain a couple inches away from your clasp:
Add the large jump ring to your monocle:
And then attach the monocle to the other end of the shorter chain and you are done!
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and found it useful. 🙂 More to come!
My mother in law is a very talented jewelry maker, and she has graciously allowed me to start selling her beautiful work in my Etsy shop. ❤ I have had some of her things for a while now and I just haven’t been able to snap good enough pictures until today. I can’t wait to put all of her lovely creations up:
Check back later this evening as well and I will have a new tutorial up. 🙂 That’s for stopping by!
I love little Myna, I can’t lie. Though she is bigger than most of the chibis I make, I think she turned out rather well. ❤ She is made 100% of polymer clay, no paints were used, as with any of my chibis.
I haven’t decided whether or not she will be available in my Etsy shop yet, I’ll have to sleep on it. 😉
Now this little baby is Titus. I made him as a gift for a person who is special to me. Titus is a playful, quirky little baby who just wants you to love him. 🙂 Look into his little bitty, sweet and innocent eyes and can you really tell him you DON’T love him? Well, I hope he is loved by the person he is meant for. ❤
I may do a tutorial over them next week. 🙂
Now, this isn’t my first pregnant chibi, more like my third, but I love making them. While I was pregnant, I hate my body much less. I glowed, and I felt attractive and like a super hero. To make a clay little figure that embodies that always brings me a sense of joy and a bit of pride.
I don’t know how exactly I want the rest of her to look just yet, but she has a very round little belly, and I want to make it appear as though she is looking down to admire her growing belly.
Hopefully I will have her completed in the next few hours. 🙂
And, I have been waiting for weeks for some black bobby pins I had ordered to come in to finish off some horns I have been wanting to make for a while now. I am so excited that they arrived today and can’t wait to get these things baked. 🙂
I’m feeling rather full of Sir this month, so, I decided to try my hand at making a very simple monocle and mustache necklace (I have a tutorial on my blog on how to make a simple mustache, if you need).
Start by rolling your clay out into a long snake:
Cut both ends with your blade to make them even, then attach them and make a circle:
Roll out a small piece of clay like so:
Pinch it into a tear drop shape and attach it to your large circle where the two end meet:
Smooth out all the spots where the clay meets with your blending tool, then bake according to the instructions on your clay’s packaging.
Enjoy and come back for more tutorials!!!
