Making Jewellery Issue9

These polymer clay pendants were inspired by Donna Katos techniques in "surface Design" I combined a few of them, added my own twists and voila! They shine like stained glass - and could be just perfect for Christmas presents...

If you'd like to learn the details of how to make them, using normal polymer clay and liquid clay, they are featured in this months Making Jewellery Magazine

Mmmmmm, must put "more polymer clay" on my Christmas list...

Craft Stamper

Januarys issue of Craft Stamper is now in the shops with a lovely steampunk/altered art pocket watch project from Yours Truly. It's a little bit Mad Hatter, a little bit Rococo and all Steampunk!

Here's a little sneak preview of the main project - if you want to see more you'll just have to look in this most excellent magazine!

I have another awesome steampunk project in the magazine next year so watch out for that one too!


Well, hubby and I had a smashing few days in london, we looked at the christmas lights and drooled over the gorgeous things in the V and A. Harrods Christmas windows got our prize with a Wizard of Oz theme in eyepopping lime green and scarlet.

We went to the national gallery, (and Libertys...) Hubby also got very excited at seeing part of Babbages Difference Engine in the Science museum. They have a whole hall of steam, a positive mecca for all Steampunk afficionados. It even has Stevensons Rocket! We also went to the Hyde Park Winter wonderland and saw a magic show in the zippo circus tent ;0 all good clean family fun!
