Achievement Unlocked: Too Many Hobbies

There is one material I’ve been desperate to try, and that is silver clay. I spent a lot of time last year googling and ogling over projects and trying to figure out how it works, what you need to burn it properly. With the prices on PMC (precious metal clay) it’s not something one experiment with without a little research.

So Jed went and got me a basic class in silver clay jewellery for my birthday (!), and I finally got to try it out a few weeks ago.  It was nothing less than totally awesome; I want to do it AGAIN. Can’t believe I thought it’d be complicated, it was easy and fun and the result felt very rewarding. At the risk of completely ruining myself I think I added another hobby to my list. Well, what can you do? It’s shiny.

With the 9 grams of clay that was included in the course I made two pendants, same shape and applications on both:

And as a reference to size, this is me wearing the larger one of the two:

If you ever thought of trying making something with silver clay, I can really recommend it. The uses of that material seem endless, as the ideas you get when you start working with it. Google silver clay. Do it.

  1. Too many hobbies, is that even possible? Too little time seems more likely. 🙂

    Nice to see pictures of you, too – I think I might even have a chance of recognizing you next time we meet. At least if time and place are pre-decided.

    I’m not brave (or pretty) enough for public display… yet? But I have noticed that mirrors are incredibly helpful. I can never resist the one in the lift when ridning with my camera – when bf is not with me, I depict myself instead. 🙂

    1. No, you are quite right, I don’t think you can have too many really, but it feels like it in relation to time and money 😉

      I have been camera shy all my life (no, that’s not true, I didn’t mind it when I was a kid…) but I’ve sort of realised that I document my life but not with me in it. Last year I started including myself more in this hobby. I think future me will thank me ?

      We can’t be super models, we are people, ordinary people, we have beauty by just being humans. Pretty is boring. Character and humanism is beautiful.
