Gift from TANZANIA and NEW projects
Isn't this bracelet gorgeous? My friend, Terry Ross, just got back from Tanzania, and she sent me this bracelet. There are ceramic beads, bone beads and glass beads....and you know, I LOVE BEADS! Thank you SOOO MUCH, Terry!
This morning I turned on the shower and THIS came out of the drain. This doesn't happen very often, but our bathtub, bathroom sink, kitchen sink and washer all drain outside as grey water.
This is a small one, about 3 inches....silly me didn't turn the light on, and I was so excited to take the picture that I took a pretty bad one....but here he is:
...and being the macabre person that I am, I ran outside and got my large canister of alcohol and my hemostats and I picked him up and dropped him in. In less than a minute he was a goner.......but for some reason his legs and antennae turned blue! I thought of coating him with silver clay slip - but I knew all the details would be lost....so......I RESINED HIM!
Into a bracelet mold! HAHA! Gross, huh? It is not done yet...it needs more resin and maybe some river rocks or glass balls or something.....I'll post again when it is done.......
...and here are the beginnings of doll heads.....works in progress
this one is polymer clay covered with paper
this one is paper clay....when it is dry it will get covered with cloth and then painted..
and this one needs to be sanded and then painted....
i have also been working on a steampunk goth cross necklace...this is what goes in the center of the cross that is made from 3 bullet casings.
...and below are the sides of the cross ...they go under the wings....
These above casings are actually from used bullet blanks (that I picked up off the set of Jericho ages ago), which is why the edges are flared....
PLEASE be sure you leave me your EMAIL ADDRESS ...otherwise I can't thank you for visiting my blog!
