Sketches for luggage tags..

I made sketches for two orders of  luggage tags. I'm excited to work on them. Thinking of using vibrant colors for both. I hope they will turn out nice. I will post WIP photos.

A Baptismal Gift...

Happy Easter!! I hope everyone had a very solemn and relaxed holy week. We just stayed at home because it was a very rainy Friday and Saturday. But thank God, it was a sunny Sunday! It was a Happy Easter indeed. :) 

I wasn't able to make two jewelry pieces this week because I had to finish a baptismal gift. I decided to make a personalized picture frame. I was supposed to use air dry clay for the letters of her name but when I was trying to position the letters on the frame, they didn't look nice. So at the last minute (as in the night before! haha!), I gave up and just used polymer clay. No regrets because it came out just the way I pictured it. 

Here are the details of the frame:

the meaning of Eunah

added some details at the sides of the frame using a stamp and acrylic paint

used the martha stewart letter push mould for the name

I love seeing the styled photos in instagram and decided to try it out. This is what I came up with. I think I will do this  with the new pieces that I will be posting. 
 For this coming week, I will work on two new pieces and a family portrait. I hope my two boys will let me finish something haha! Wishing you a good week ahead!:)

Preggy, Baby and Claying....

Oh wow! I didn't realize that my last post was a year ago! How time flies! So many things happened in the past year but the best one was having Austin. Our new baby boy! He brings sunshine into our lives.

In my last post, I told you about my new work at a preschool. I had to stop because I got pregnant. So I'm now back being a stay at home mum. I'm slowly trying to get back to claying. When the bub's asleep, I try to push myself to make something but house work plus surfing the net and sleeping get in the way! tsk tsk! So as of today, my goal is to be able to finish 2 pieces of jewelry each week and eventually I hope to be able to finish something each day. I will share with you the finished pieces each week.

So to start it off...here's a bag tag that I made for a little boy. I'm glad that he liked it..and his mum too!

I also tried mixing clay and felt together in one piece of jewelry and this is what I made..

Bub's awake!! I'll be back soon...
