Going Mod on Polymer Clay TV with Easy and Fun Pendants


I love to mix up different textures and patterns to create unusual jewelry. These fun Mod Lantern cutters were a great shape to do this with. You can turn it upside or downside and get 2 different looks with one cutter. I love the look of using the graduated size designs and stacking them on top of each other using different silkscreen patterns. These have a kind of Tribal vibe to me and I was happy with the fun results not to mention how easy they are to make. 


I used several different silkscreens to achieve these pendants. You can find our silkscreens at this link.
You can find the Mod Lantern Cutters at this link. 

Try stringing these a variety of ways to get even more different looks. Add a leather cord, string with beads or even for a simple look add to a wire necklace. Have fun creating!

How to cover a glass beer bottle with polymer clay to decorate and recycle



I finished off a bottle of my favorite Ginger Beer, Crabby's.... and I noticed that this bottle has a cool flare at the bottom and and interesting overall shape. Why would I toss this bottle into the recycling bin, when I could cover it with clay and make a beautiful vase?

With a couple of design decisions- such as using a silkscreen and mold that complement each other, picking a triadic color scheme featuring split complementary colors, and making my own "bling," this bottle was completely transformed into something fun and funky :)
