Polymer Clay Fairy Door

Here is the Fairy Door I made for my swap partner, Alenka.  It finally made it to Slovenia, took about 2 weeks, that isn't bad.

I used the door as a display for a matching necklace and earring set.



Here is how the door looks without the jewelry.  The wire loops on top of the door frame are to keep the earrings in place and the holes are for the necklace chain.  I will tweak this a bit next time.


Close up of the necklace and earrings.


This was an experiment.... I plan to make a couple more with matching jewelry and see if they will sell on Etsy.

Alenka said she sat the little door on her desk and it occurred to  me that next time I could make matching pens and use the little pots as pen holders.  I like for things to have a practical use.  What do you think?

Short but sweet today.  I have a few things in the works but I have a head cold, between the coughing and sneezing I nap a  lot.... I should have more to show you in a few days.

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Fabulously creative, appealing and meticulously crafted! I love way you displayed the necklace and earrings, too. I just want to open that door and step right inside! Matching pens and Pots for pen holder might be terrific if you can get the holders be stable enough without having to be huge. KUDOS!

  6. Thank you Anita. I'm thinking maybe I can make the pens look like lamp posts and make the base deeper so they will stand up. BJ
