saturday scribbles


once again i've left photographing this post until the last minute and have ended up with poorly lit pictures, sigh. will i learn?

this week i've poured my 'me time' into getting to grips with clay and have made a few different bits and bobs, some flat and some 3D. i began by playing around with some simple characters to use as brooches and am pretty happy with the way they turned out! i've also ordered some magnetic backing to turn my characters into magnets to use on fridges, wall boards etc. to keep notes and such in eyesight.

i also played around with an 'afternoon tea' jewellery theme and moulded some 3D pieces which were fairly challenging but lots of fun to make! i'm not too sure what the direction of this project is yet, however i'd love to hear any feedback as i've toyed with the idea of putting them up for sale in my etsy shop, however i don't want to do so if there'll be little to no interest! so yeah, please do feel free to hit me up with any comments or suggestions down below :) thanks!

  1. Those are so cute! I tried using that sort of clay once but I sucked at it - photographs like these make me want to pick it up again & learn how to make cute little animals! x

    1. yeah it's a bit tricky at first, but i think after a bit of a play around (and a lot of patience!) it all starts to make a little more sense :)

  2. I love the 3D ones, especially the little cakes, they are so good!

  3. They're adorable! Loving the teapot & the little house. Personally I would buy things like this as they're cute, quirky and unique handmade pieces and especially with jewellery it's nice to have something that's a little bit different.
    Great work
