It all began with a pink rose

or
How do I make my key chains collections..... from the first rose cane.




If I want to inspire my self I build a vibrant pink rose cane, this color just stimulate my senses.


So now I have the pink and the green leaves, and I decide on a background color that will compliment the 2 basic colors. On this particular cane, because it was very big I've made 2 background colors, so that gave me the option to make 2 collections: the Pink-Greens and the Pink-blues.



I love the middle part, where the green and blue are melting into each other.


To characterize the collection and to give it a unique sweetness I've made a cupcake cane.


I love making millefiori canes with solid color background,
so in every collection I have this kind in addition to canes with transparent background.


Some of the canes can be used in several combinations, so I can play with them,
adjust and match them to my collections.



The next step is making the layered sheet for the big flower and heart main beads. I choose the canes that I want to incorporate on the surface and start making the layers; it takes me about 1 hour for one surface sheet.


and after 1 hour it looks like that :D


I use cookie cutters to create the beads, it is always a flower and a heart. I assemble the beads, add a slice from my logo cane on the side and cure them in the oven.



I have 5 different beads on every key chain, besides the large main bead. There is a lot of reducing canes, cutting  slices, rolling beads and a lot more until it goes to the oven. The beads are cured and cool down.



We are in the final step of "bead making", YAY, the beads are varnished and are left to dry,
and I can rest a bit too.




Until now, I couldn't see the true colors of the beads, only after they are cured, varnished and dry, their true colors shine.

Here is the Pink~Green~collection


and the beads from the Pink~Blue~Collection


It is the last stage - I design the assembling of the key chain. I choose the beads from my inventory, seed beads, acrylic and glass beads.


I make one design to each collection and assemble the rest of the key chains the same as the first original design. It is very good for me because I do not have to reinvent my self with every key chain.


After a long journey from the first rose cane, my key chains are finished.


It is very exiting to see all the beads come together.


 I love how from each collection I make,
although you can see many colors,
there is a clear main color that shines through.










Hope you've enjoyed this presentation,
got some inspiration and experienced my passion for colors & design.

Have a great weekend

kisses!!!!

  8. Perfect as usual. May I ask, which brand of polymer clay you use?

    1. Thank you Nihal :))
      I use mostly FIMO brands, I use Fimo soft, I love their saturation and brightness. I also use Fimo Classic, but their colors are a bit dull for my taste. I use a lot of white for mixing the clay :) so the colors are much brighter.

    1. Hello Mayda,
      I have a booklet that is for beginners and it is free for my Facebook friends,
      here:
      http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1424693089945.2058835.1011279854&type=3

      About prices, welll, I buy in my town mostly and at "polymer clay express" too,
      http://www.polymerclayexpress.com/
      so with prices it is best that you check in your country.

      You do not have to buy all the colors, 6-7 basic colors and 3-4 packages of White that you can mix with the others. Gold is good too :)

    2. I just you don't your fabulous Page, WOWZERS, I want everything! I tried to go the link for your beginners book but the link doesn't work. I am following your FB page, is there something else that I need to do to access this resource. Did you publish an Ebook for your beautiful rose? I really want to learn to make those.

  15. Ronit , your work is lovely, and its obvious that you love doing it too! The results really are stunning. Can you tell me what varnish you use. I've tried lots of different ones since the Fimo varnish (not the water based one) was discontinued, and none so far give as good a result.

    1. Hello Rachel :) Thank you.
      I still have the old oil based varnish, from Fimo brand.
      I am very sorry that I cannot help you with this issue, but if I will have some new info, I will write about it.
