Humming Bird and Leaf Man

About this design:

These pieces are made with crystal clay, I used a bezel form and charms, also chatons. I put a little shimmer with pearl mica powder. The humming bird is for my mom, I will be making a necklace with it..


Bezel pendant, crystal clay, charms, chatons, all from LB..... and mica powder.

    WOW! WOW! WOW!
    Too cool. I love the leaf man. Beautiful green. He’d look great with some funky chain and some green dangle pearls mixed with little leaves.

    AHHHHHH ( thats a squeal in case you were wondering). Oh these are just beautiful but you know which one I love I’m sure. So you embed the charm in the clay? Now I have another new thing I have to.learn.

    Amazing! I thought the charms were set on leather. Had no idea that crystal clay–especially with the gleam of the powder–could be so pretty. Great, great job.

    Love using mica powders also in polymer clay, it gives the illusion of metal or raku ,never tried crystal clay yet. Love them both. :D
