My creative workspace - Vol.1.

I have been asked so many times to write and show a bit about how I create things.

First of all, one thing you need to know about me. I love buying all kind of supplies, most of the time I have no idea what I can do with them. But I have to have them, because of their colours or textures...I know, I know...I shouldn't do things like that, but I just love materials what looks nice!
I just started using my glass beads, what I bought from the former Czech Republic back in 1985 :)
This is one of my box, full with polymer clay, tools, mohair (I made a few OOAK Fairy) and all kind of laser powders...etc.

I wanted to use these laser powders for so long now, and two weeks ago I had an idea to make some pendants and beads.
First I mixed the glitter in the clay...

While I am playing around with the clay, my little daughter accessorizing! Talking about "The apple does not fall far from the tree" :D

...and I hand sculpted a rose, some hearts and some beads.

After baking them in the oven, I sealed them with a sealant for a glossy sheen.
With silver wire and some Swarovski Crystals, I made pendants from them...
...and today was the day, when I had the idea how can I make a necklace from them.
Here are the finished pieces...
You can find this necklace exclusive to DaWanda.
You can find this Exclusive to Etsy.

I was quite busy today, because I made my first Cherry jam too. I will blog about this tomorrow :)
Going to bed now, it's already 02.22am here in Hungary.
