I have been wanting to......

I chose "I have been wanting to...." as the theme for Mixed Media Monday this week to give people the little push they might need to try something they have been wanting to try for some time, but haven't. I have been wanting to try a steam punk pendant for ages, so this was my opportunity to actually do it. The pendant looks a lot bigger than it actually is, because the bust isn't all that big. It is made from gold, silver and copper metallic polymer clay, and is also dusted with some mica powders to give it a lovely metallic look. I used some watch parts and other bits and pieces to finish it off.

That's pretty cool. I've tried polymer clay but it was so hard! I wonder if my batch was a bit old? Love the steam punk look.

Beautiful! I of course love the steampunk aspect of it :)) but I think even those that don't particularly like steampunk would be drawn to this beauty :)
