2015PCchallenge, clasp, handmade bead, polymer clay, red, toggle
For the last week of my 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge, I have made an old school bar and loop toggle clasp.
It’s pretty chunky and mostly red.
I wanted a contrast between the pattern on the side and the front as the bar will be seen side on when in use. I’m mostly happy but I think it could do with another iteration – the stripes in the bar are a bit thinner than I’d imagined.
The hard part was carving the polymer clay to look interestingly irregular without ending up a wobbly mess. Maybe it could do with a touch more wobble? 😉
This is officially the last week of my Spectrum Year, but I’m sure I will be making more as I feel I’ve barely scratched the surface. For 2016 I plan to make a vessel every week. Have a look at the Flickr group I’ve made if you’d like to join in.
BEST WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR!
