One amphora, two amphorae

Yay! this was so much fun to make!!!! An Amphora Necklace!!



With a tutorial from Tina at beadcomber.etsy.com, scrap clay, a mould by Krafty Lady (AM330) and a whole lot of patience!!
I also used a buffing wheel made today, as per the instructions on Desiree's Site, wahoo! What a shine!!! I'm going to make a second one soon, I can just feel it!!! I did however supaglued/crazy glued the discs to each other and pierced a small hole in the middle so my mandrel could securely screw in. I saw that tip in another tutorial, but watch out to not glue your fingers!

I've also made those when I was in my Faux Bone Craze (I still am, I just ran out of the mix. Will have to make more)

I've been in a very creative mood lately and tried to make a bit of time to make stuff!!!

It feels good!

late addition: my other Faux Bone can be seen here

France, that Amphora turned out well! I like how you incorporated the little tassel in the stopper, nice addition. Looking forward to seeing your next one.

That Amphora is just gorgeous! I love it. So glad you are on a creative roll - not just for you - I get all the eye candy.

Hi, long time no read! Thanks for the nice comments on my blog--so I came looking for yours, which had fallen into "desuetude" a while. Glad to see you still making gorgeous stuff! I'll put you on my reader, so I don't miss anything (Julie K. taught me about those, hehe).

Thank you Tina and Julie.
Heather, yup, on the back burner and sort of no time to stir the pot!
