It’s Valentine’s Day next Tuesday and there are a whole bunch of earthernware heart pendants on my stock page if anyone is looking for a special gift:

Heart pendants, £6 each

There are two dark red glazed hearts with beads too if you check out my stock page, and I also have some spare beads and leather cord if anyone wants to order a custom necklace. Email me by 5pm tomorrow and your pendant will be in the 1st class post by Saturday morning to arrive with your intended recipient on Tuesday (UK only). I’ll even throw in free P&P (usually £2) if you order a second item!

Apologies for the lack of a Making Monday post this week, check out everyone else’s contributions here. My stock page is approaching up to date though, so if you liked the look of the porcelain pendants or buttons in my last post, check it out. I haven’t listed all the 1″ diameter ivy leaves because I’m still musing attempting wirework again and making something with them, but if you had a project in mind for them, feel free to drop me an email and I’m sure I could be convinced to part with them 🙂

I made buttons! They are stoneware, glazed in Blues&Greens – the colour representation looks pretty good on my laptop screen but it’s foggy in Dundee today and not the best light for photography.

Stoneware ivy leaf buttons

I made these by pressing ivy leaves into rolled out clay and then cutting around them. There are 3 different leaf shapes, 3 of each of the larger ones and 4 small ones. I thought the two pence coin would help for scale – the larger ones are 3.5-4 cm across and the small 3 cm.

Don’t all fight over them at once! I can make some more if people want them but I can’t guarantee how quickly because we are down to one working kiln at the college at present.

Handmade bead necklace

This necklace arrived with its new owner today. It’s a mixture of plum beautiful, raspberry ice and sparkly burgundy glazed handmade beads, threaded on beading nylon with a silver lobster clasp. It’s been much admired already and I seem to have a waiting list of people who want something similar, which might take a while to get through given how labour intensive hand crafting and painting beads is! Still, the end product is worth it I think.

I may be short on beads but I have plenty of pendants left if anyone wants one. I’m going to be updating my stock page soon (although everything pictured is available, I just have more stuff that isn’t up) and I’m offering free postage for all jewellery orders of £10 or more so why not treat yourself or a loved one.

Crystal glazed heart pendant and bead necklace

Crystal glazed heart pendant and bead necklace

This is the best picture I’ve been able to get of my latest creation (I need to invest in a better camera for close-up work or bribe a friendly photographer to assist me!).  The title just seemed obvious, particularly as the space connection is two-fold; the crystal glaze I used is called ‘Milky Way’, and I was watching old episodes of Babylon 5 as I was doing the wire-work to put it all together. I’m really pleased with this, the glaze is beautiful (unfortunately, the photo really doesn’t capture the depth of colour) and my wire-work has really improved with practice!

Handpainted stoneware pendants

Handpainted stoneware pendants

These are the long-waited pendants that I painted and glazed months ago and then couldn’t get fired because the kiln broke. As you can see, I’ve made some up with matching earthenware beads, and left others with just a jump ring bail to attach them to a cord or chain.

Also coming, when I can get a craftgawker-worthy photo of it, is my new masterpiece – The Heart of the Galaxy necklace – and my pendants and necklaces should also start appearing on my stock catalogue page soon. So you might just find that perfect piece of unique jewellery to accessorize a summer wedding outfit right here.
