Also these simple ones, one is shipwreck's and one is mine.

So I think I'mna have to start making bead soups to destash because all I wanna do is make polybeads now. Check out some.

Faceted, painted then sanded.

Used rock salt for those pits:
And regular salt for the surface. Then I shaved off some of the surface cuz they were looking sorta bubble-gummy. Then I attacked them with paints.

Twirls and facets and paint oh my.

Cap type things that are too thin and I have to either try again or fill with epoxy or resin to strongify.

It works really well when you just keep doing shit to them. like, use your acrylics and your alcohol inks and you knife and your textures...
Here's a bead cap texture Shipwreck sent me. Learned you can use a spritz of water as a mold release! That's what I gotta try more of. Got tons more but you get the idea.
I need me a little -

Your newest beads are mad science Marina! It's a thrill to see you produce such treasure. I keep meaning to ask, did you get a wee baby sister for your mom's cat? Hello to the fur folk from me. N, x

Holdthephonewaitaminute! I see symmetrical earrings! Am I in the wrong blog?!? Love'em all. <~~

I've always thought that you 'messed' too much with inks and ute and putty and glitter and what not. Things that for me belong more to the realm of scrapbooking that to 'real' jewelry.

BUT, those polymer beads, are incredible. All that applying of inks and gold leaf and stuff really elevates the humble polymer to something else entirely.

It seems that you can satisfy with those beads your obsessive manipulation (I mean it in a good way!). The result is stunning :)

Love what you are doing with polymer clay. In fact, I love all these earrings!

CraftyHope said...

Your skillz with polymer clay are tremendous! And you just started a few weeks ago!? Wow-o-wow! Just fabulous.

Unknown said...

beautiful of course, now, on the cap that shipwreck sent, is it that you molded it into the poly so it looks like a bead cap, or is it a real bead cap? Love it all.

Unknown said...

Wow wow wow! Craziness as usual, so lovely, so original, so beautiful... like Beatnheart said, makes me want to buy it all :)

That little kitty is sooooo cute

Sometimes I click over to your blog then get overwhelmed by what I'm sure I'm about to see and have to click away real fast because I just won't be able to stand all the pretty and fantastical and make-y-ness. After several days away, I took a deep breath and looked and I'm overwhelmed by all the pretty and just want to go to bed now. How do you live with all this!! So pretty it hurts.
