52 pairs of earrings a year challenge - week one for me
I was wondering what type of earrings I should make first - then it became obvious - little cats of course!
(You can find my free tutorial to make them yourself here - I wouldn't recommend starting so small though, they are very fiddly small!)
They are 2cm across, I had to make 3 cats as I realised after I made the second identical to the first they would look better mirroring each other.
If you like to make things why not join the challenge? They don't have to be made from polymer clay, just be earrings. It was set by Anke Humpert on flickr, to make 52 pairs of earrings a year. I am starting this week so I should play along for 52 weeks and finish this time next year. My intention is to make a pair and list them for sale in my online shop but I haven't got my shop up together yet, nearly there! I am not happy enough with these to sell them anyway. Week 2, next week the earrings will be listed for sale!!!!!
My name is Cara Jane Hayman and I live in Bristol UK
My first polymer clay work, at age 7, was a tea set for my dolls. I have enjoyed it as a hobby since then but over the last few years it has grown from a hobby to a real passion! I have been lucky enough to attend creative workshops with many of the world’s finest polymer clay artists including Donna Kato, Christine Dumont and Carol Blackburn which has fuelled my passion even further.
I am having a great time exploring many of the endless possibilities polymer clay offers. You can follow me on my journey and find my tips, tutorials and polymer clay creations at www.carajane.co.uk
