Shining In Plastic

Polymer clay is really plastic of some sort. The soft clay has nothing to do with clay. Although we call it clay - it is plastic in soft form. At least until it is cured in the oven. Then you can paint, polish and do almost anything with it. Totally versatile and fun to create with.

Anyway, I have made bird ornaments, stitch markers, earrings and now a pendant. All made in polymer clay, textured, cured and painted.

Mr Shine was intended to be an ornament but I found him utterly handsome and think he needs to fly a little hanging on a leather cord. I have the word Live on the other side: Live to Shine. Just as we were all meant to do.

I use long leather cords and tiny beads on the ends. Easy to adjust the length and no clasp or something like that. Also makes it easy to make - I like those short cuts that do not take a lot of time and stop me from making jewelry.

The bird is a celebration of our uniqueness. Spreading my wings and fly into the summer which is warm, sunny and just as we like it.

Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings

  2. I think your birds are beautiful, and make a difference. Just like your quotes : thank you for today's quote , I am feeling 'quite frail' today, and I forgot I can fly, so now I remember again! Thank you so much.

  3. Lone, this is a very special post! I love Live to Shine ;o) I might have to make a painting called that ;o) I love the quote too! I think I have told you this before, but your Grow Strong bird you gave me, means so much! I have it hanging, where I meditate. That bird and what it says, truly is what I need this year! Often, I touch him and hold him ;o)
    Big Hugs ;o)

  5. Du har mange talenter. Ler og organiske former er ikke min afdeling. Jeg er bedst til flade flader og det passer heldigvis godt til at strikke efter!
