I have just taken delivery of this lush magazine which landed on my doormat this morning. It's fab and full of techniques and inspirational jewellery ideas. It's from the massive and fantastic Stampington & Co range, so you have to order it in from the USA.
Anyway, back to the steampunk pieces. These were inspired by my mate, Nicky, who sells the ones she makes as they are absolutely stunning. She incorporates lots of different materials in her pendants. If you are interested, visit her blog and click on the email me logo down the right to ask her what she has as each pendant is unique.
I also came across someone else who had played around with the same idea, as she had entered her make into a Simon Says challenge. See it here.
So here is what I was playing around with using the TH ornate plates as the base for the pieces.
This one uses all TH pieces
This one is TH, except the cog which is 7Gypsys.
This one is a mix of all sorts.
TH and 7Gypsys pieces.
A mix of all sorts.
This one doesn't use the ornate plate for the base. The clock pieces are TH and the cog 7Gypsys. The face is made from clay and coloured with silver acrylic paint.
