Something Lacy Silver Clay Pendant

Something Lacy, Silver Clay Pendant, Amanda Bates, The Craft Spa 012

So this is what I made on Tuesday. Now folks… this is what you could call serious kissing using a rubber stamp!! 99% silvers’ worth!

For years I have wanted to take a rubber stamp and go and make a silver clay pendant with it! After seriously hinting for 2 years worth of Christmas and birthday presents… in December I gave up and booked myself on a Silver Clay Pendant course…

So now I have…! And here is my make…  difficult to get a great photo though!

Of course, Something Lacy had to travel with me…well that stamp is too good not to share! And now I will for eternity! And I cannot believe how much detail comes off that stamp…

And I had such a fabulous morning. True crafting therapy for me!  After 6 years of running workshops for cardmaking, packaging and scrapbooking for others - I cannot tell you how lovely it was to be a true crafting beginner again, to sit at a workshop and be instructed – to make and learn something new and and to come away with something so beautiful. Thanks to Helen Drye at Silver & Stone Jewellery in Riccall, York for such a fabulous workshop.

And of course I had the perfect box (already made and shared here) to pop it into…. though this pendant will be around my neck…not in a gift box!

And now I have realised how much of my stash can be used for Silver Clay work… think there may be a little clay purchase coming along soon….. though I think it may be a little silver and a lot more of bronze! Well I have to have pure crafty play time…. lots of ideas already!!

Although first I will use some of my newly learnt techniques with our Stampin’ Up! Simply Pressed clay – and moulds. Luckily no fire involved with this clay… I am sure the new techniques will prove useful…. watch this space!
