Lately, I was really enjoying making my own jewelry. I like any kind of chain jewelry, rings, bracelets and many more. I've tried to make this bow design out of regular clay and it was a pain in the a**. Fortunately, I "discovered" art store and modelling clay.
For this jewelry design I had in mind some pastel colors, so I picked peach and mint modelling clay. Each was around 1,60€. In my opinion it's very cheap, since you can make a lot out of it.
To make a bow I took a small peace of clay and rolled it into a ball. Then I rolled it into cylinder. I can't find a better word for this shape. But you know what I mean - a long stick. Each end I thinned out a bit, so that it won't stick out in the back. Then I used a glass jar to roll over and flatten it.
I took another small peace of clay, rolled it into a ball, then a stick and flattened it. I rolled it over the middle part of the bow. And that is it. Then all I did was baked it in the oven as it was instructed on the clay.
When my designs cooled down I went on to decorating them. I used nail polishes to create glitter on bows and made them shiny with clear top coat. I added chains, studs, beads and many more.
I incorporated bow designs into making bow bracelets, bow rings, bow key chain and bow necklace. Wow...what didn't I do? Oh yeah, earrings: )).
I also did a fox ring, because I once saw some in the stores and really wished it, but it was way too expensive. So, I did my own inspired one :).
Have you ever tried making your own jewelry? Would you wear any of my designs?
