Trial Run

About this design:

This is one of my attempts at clay pendants with phrases. I am starting large and then trying to miniaturize. What do you guys think?


Sculpey clay, Vintaj patina and gloss, LB, Typeface letters-I used a set made for rubberstamping but I have a set of 3mm metal stamps, same font, from LB to use when I turn pro. Forgot to credit LB with the footprint and heart stamps!!

    That is absolutely adorable Becky. As a gift to a new Mom or Grandmom especially. You could do so much with this. It doesn’t necessarily have to be jewelry…I see scrapbook covers, & picture frame & ornaments….

    Thanks, you guys, for the affirmation! I was thinking of tying a pink bow through the hole and shadow box framing it for my daughter-in-law and son whose baby girl is due in a week. :)

    That would be such an awesome gift Becky. Especially with one of the birth announcements or any other little piece of memorabilia.
