Flash Jewclay class

One of my best friend threw a flash class in my workshop, for her 2 aunts, in teatime today; with just couple of minutes prior notice.  A busy day, several works done in quick hands, finally. 

One of the aunties are short staying in HK for joining a banquet, and heading back NJ, USA tomorrow. 

She might be bored for else shopping but kept saying why not to have such craft class early than this last day of stay in HK.

Not less, two more Pandora alike bracelet with Jewclay prndants also done in class. We were just over busy for taking any photo.

Anyway, a happy busy afternoon.

The fabric is given from a friend, Louisa.  I know she loves handmade stuffs and calligraphy.

a hair clip also be used as a corsage; back by lace with handmade edge-burnt roses with pearls and ribbon, always great to attach with a jewclay pendant; I made a little L lettering by marble-mode pin with a sparkling lilac stone.

If it looks like a piece of bacon

I use to put some materials into a tray and try to figure out a hair accessory design; yes, simply says this is best to do mix and match.

My girl had a glance over, said, “what you can do with this piece of bacon.”

Bacon! No way!

Well, it really looks like a piece of bacon, in frank.

I finally remove the bunch of buds and let the metal parts hallow out for the ribbon colors.

我慣常把一些物料隨意堆在一起,相信這是大多手作設計人喜歡的習慣;這是 Mix & Match 最好方法。

我女兒遠瞟一眼就笑:「妳想把那片煙肉做什麼?」

「什麼煙肉?」好吧,單看這絲帶顏色實在太像了;也是這樣要拼合時,有點困難——是顏色比重上的猶疑。

想不到用一個同色系的鏤空粉色金件,它成為主角,也好把後面毛線綑環的彩虹色全透出來,造出一個很特別的撞色效果。

這既可作頭飾,也適合夾在胸前當胸花使用。

 

和布小花 Kanzashi

廿多年前在日本關西上過一節課,那時沒有熱溶膠之類的工具,一切用針線來做。

丟下後,一直沒有再玩過。

早前見【愛心義國】有個教學班,踫巧日期適合,就打算去跟著大家玩玩。弄了兩個,覺得是失敗品。

在課堂中沒有合適的工具,沒怎麼心情去造。適逢好友見到覺得還不錯,說承接了我的失敗品去,這可把我的興味給撩出來了。

回到家裡的小工作室,翻了些小布碎,情緒來了。可是還是有點不對勁。畢竟小布花還是造了,拼合了,還幸得好友讚好,覺得這漂亮;有她這個鼓勵,只好繼續努力研究。

好!先練手法,重新由零練習;把一些絲帶做了些最基本的五瓣小花。11113777_10152998995221896_5305704356569310877_n

有了信心後,就開始把它們拼合,本來很想做一個像近日大熱中的〈武媚娘傳奇〉媚娘頭上的前額釵,但最後想手工還沒練到那程度,加上做了也沒人會戴,於是還是造了個自己也樂於放上頭當髮飾的就好。

Chloe in Tiffany

Follow my steps:

  1. cut out 10mm thickness from JEWCLAY-white A clay from its packed bar.
  2. use JEWCLAY-green A clay, little bit; just like the portion to compare the white A clay in picture.
  3. Mix them into your own green color, keep the mixture in a ball shaped.
  4. Cut out about same size of B clay from packing.
  5. Rub clay A mixture to mix thru with clay B.
  6. You would find the Tiffany color has come out.  Fill the hair band tray with your Tiffany colored clay mixture with soft touch of your finger tipping the edge well.
  7. Put the parts on top of the clay, straightly push a bit into the clay for fixing it well.
  8. Brush on some cosmetic use glittering powder on surface of clay.
  9. Leave the whole thing in safe for room temperature.  It would be perfect and ready your daily use after 8 hours.
