Broken old necklace into ear jewelry

This is an old silver necklace I had which to some point had a little ... accident. The chain broke in a couple of places. I really like the material and the gemstones though, so I decided instead of throwing it away to make two earrings out of it.

I just used pliers to cut the chain, a couple of earring hooks and finally baking soda to make my new creations look like new:

 I made two different ones:

In the near future I might cut them shorter :-)


Rope necklaces out of old head band and polymer clay gemstone

It's been a very long time...again! Since I managed to find some free time over the past couple of weeks I decided to spend it on crafting of course :-)

This head band has seen more than a few summers and I don't really wear it anymore:

So I decided to make a rope necklace out of it and finally I ended up making two of them:

All I used was rope, needle and thread, reused clasps and chain and polymer clay for the gemstone.

I think I am ready now for my summer/autumn holidays!


Flying Spaghetti Monster Top Ornament Tutorial

May his noodly appendages touch you this holidays seasson!

Hello! I know I haven't posted anything for a very long time and I probably won't do so for a while after this post. However I couldn't resist sharing this idea. The winter solstice celebration time is near and this usually involves decorating a tree. This year instead of a star or an angel as the top ornament I thought of trying something different: a SFM (  Flying Spaghetti Monster) ornament. For those who don't know what it is: Flying Spaghetti Monster

For the meatballs and the pasta I used polymer clay. Terracotta for the meatballs and beige+translucent white for the pasta.

 I used some aluminum foil to give the meatballs some texture. I also used a couple of shiny eye shadows to give it a festive glow.

 Created a large spaghetti...

 ...the antennas

 After pre-baking the meatballs for 5 minutes I wrapped the spaghetti around them

 This is how it looked liked after I baked it for another 15 minutes.

I used acrylic paint for the eyes and some glitter as well.

 For the base I used one of these cardboard egg box cones

 After I cut it out I painted it in egg shell color and purred  white glitter over it before the paint got dry

 Glued it with hot glue...

Here is his Noodliness on the top of our tree!
