Today's pendant.  Dark stone with lichen.  Er ... that's it.

lol - who would you say your target audience would be for your Atheletes Foot range of wares Alan?

Stick to the pendants - they are way better  :D Loving the lichen pendant. It reminds of old gravestones - chanelling my inner goth there for a bit.

Thank you, Emma. :-) ... Yes, like on gravestones.  Why didn't I think of that?  And to think I used to be a vicar! lol

Karolina, They are brilliant!  Lily of the Valley, aren't they?  LOVE THEM! :)

Well they're definitely Lily of the Valley, Karolina. Lovely.  :)  The turquoise ones can just be a new variety. :)

The result of two and a half days of frustration. ... I won't do this again in a hurry!  :o

I was inspired by a photograph I saw of a view taken from inside a rabbit hole looking out towards the sky and thought "Wouldn't it be nice to make a pendant something like that on an Alice in Wonderland theme?"  Me and my thoughts.  Still, I can never rest until I've at least attempted to turn my thoughts into reality.  Another of my many failings!  :-[

Anyway, the pendant wasn't too difficult, but the White Rabbit running into the hole was the bit that was a right royal pain in the Queen of Heart's posterior - as I've never sculpted a figure before and he's tiny.  He sort of looks like a rabbit and I had to add his brolly tucked under his arm and him looking at his pocket watch - because he's late for a very important date, dontcha know.  ;)  I added his waistcoat, jacket and walking britches (is that the right spelling?) using polymer clay to cover the basic rabbit form.  I drew the line at attempting his monocle!  :P  The flipping rabbit took as long as the rest of it!

It was generally fun to do and it came out sort of how I had envisaged so I'm quite pleased on the whole.

I'm off for something that says "Drink me!"   :-\



And that pesky rabbit.  You can just see him in the bottom of the pendant ...
