Some jewellery for a change

Hellloooooo, how did it get to be Monday morning so quickly?? I feel as though I've blinked and missed the weekend. I've got a manic week at work this week so I may not be around much but before I do my impression of a hamster on a wheel I thought I'd share some jewellery I've made recently with stampbord and Silver Art Clay. 

The top 2 pins are made with stampbord, I've used stamps from Chocolate Baroque, the large square pin is stamped with part of the huge stamp from Butterfly Dreams stamp sheet and coloured with Tinkabella inks. The smaller pin is stamped with one of the stamps from Nature's Paisley stamp sheet and painted with distress inks. I've used gold UTEE round the edges of both and then gave them a couple of coats of matt varnish and come gold acrylic paint on the back. I've attached some brooch pins to the back with glossy accents.  Here's a closer pic:

The other 3 are pendants made from Silver Art Clay, they still need another polish but I can't find the silver polish, you can tell how often I polish the family silver lol
Again the stamps are from Chocolate Baroque, I've used the large stamp from Butterfly Dreams for the square pendant, and I can't remember which plates the other butterflys are from .... Glenda has so many gorgeous butterfly stamps.

I love working with silver clay, there's something really relaxing about all the sanding and its great to see the silver appear from the fired piece when you brush  it. Loads of fun!! I've put a bale on the back of each pendant, and will probably string them on some ribbon or cord when I get round to it. I'm entering my jewellery in the following challenges:

Bling it on: anything goes
By the cute and girly: things with wings
Sir Stampalot: Anything goes
Truly Scrumptious: things with wings

Thanks for visiting today, I'd better get my skates on and go earn a crust :-)
