I'm rather excited by these gorgeous polymer clay leaves from a new artist I've just been introduced to. This pair of leaves are so realistic in person with shades of green and gold and gold gilt veins. As these are handmade, they are not identical, nonetheless, they're beautiful.
the leaves on their own measure approx 4cm and I've added tendrils of little floral buds in the form of precious stones and freshwater pearls. How else would we showcase leaves if not from vermeil sunflowers. Drop of approx 6.5cm. These are head turners.
Deep blue sodalite, flat squares measuring 16mm x 16mm and 12mm faceted nuggets, 10mm x 13mm and larger 11mm x 17mm clay nuggets are happy companions to a gorgeous pave bow connector.
p.s. - the photos suck....its raining and I dislike indoor lighting so I've taken outdoor photos in gloomy weather. Actual colours are vibrant and contrast beautifully with the white.
I chose the name Neo, as this necklace is typical of the sulam or embroidery on the Peranakan kebayas. Bold, vibrant and intricate, the stitches blend into one another and the flowers seem to have a life of its own.
In this creation, I've used colour enhanced agate nuggets and blended into the soothing turquoise, are polymer clay rondells in complementary colours. This necklace is headed to a special Neo who owns several gorgeous kebaya tops.
Well, I spent the afternoon indoors and finished off a chinoiserie inspired necklace featuring faceted, colour enhanced flat irregular shape nuggets measuring approx. 23mm x 28 mm. So we don't get too boring in our accessories, I've added a carved colour enhanced jade connector measuring approx 23mm x 34mm. Flanking this gorgeous connector on either side, a flat jade rondell. On the other side of the necklace are two carved carnellian butterflies measuring approx 1cm x 1cm separated by a natural round jade 10mm in diameter. This would definitely add pizzazz to any outfit.
