Crafty Days - my latest experiments

Well, my daughter started Prep yesterday. How grown up she looked in her uniform and hat and school shoes *sniff*. Since all the kids have the same school bag, many parents have decorated them with paint and key chains so the children can easily identify their own bag. So I made a key chain for my daughter using polymer clay pieces (the red heart I made, the other heart and Pandora-style bead were made by another Etsian) Greek ceramic discs and resin beads all strung on satin cord.

I've also made my first glass tile pendant. I used some Amy Butler paper and stamped it with a black crown and silver script. It's shown here strung on a black satin cord but I'm not quite certain yet if I will continue using this or bead chain or some other material. This is a 2.5cm (1") glass disc but I'm waiting on some 5cm (2") tiles to arrive so I can make larger pendants.


  1. That is very cool! My mom used to make me and my siblings clothes for school each day. At the time I didn't really appreciate it but now I'm wishing I had that wardrobe again lol.

    And I really like that glass tile :)

  2. I found your blog through the Etsy forums and just wanted to say hi and that your blog is lovely! Have a beautiful week!
