Polymer Clay Old Tree of Life Pendant by Talty Polymer Clay Old Tree of Life Pendant by Talty

| Etsy | Storenvy | Custom Commissions | Facebook | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |



This was an interesting commission, I was given three elements to work with to create a pendant:

-The design of Tree of Life (basically a tree inside a circle with the branches reaching out to the edges, there's lots of awesome examples in DA).
- An old crooked tree, with the trunk leaning to the side.
- The colors petrol blue, silver and green.

This is the design I came up with, and both my commissioner and the recipient of the pendant liked it! That's what I love so much about custom commissions, when I know that my work is liked I feel extremely happy! It's kinda addicting...

I went for a minimalistic clean look overall, but overdid the curls on the branches just a tiny bit, for contrast. I decided not to add the green to keep it minimal, and resisted the urge to bling it with some crystals. I used a needle to give the impression of bark and added silver mica to make the silver very shiny, it also helped pull off the impression of bark. It has been a couple of months since I made this, and looking back I think I would have liked to add roots to it, but I don't know if my commissioner would have liked it XD it wasn't part of the sketch I sent her with my idea. Oh well.

The blue disc/pendant has beveled edges, it looks very interesting. I found a cool way of making pendants look very even and with a nice beveled edge :dummy: no molds ;) just playing around with my clay until it happened. Maybe one day I'll make a tutorial for it. I have so many tutorials in mind it's not even funny.

Materials: All handmade with polymer clay, no molds, premades, cutters or anything were used. Silver mica was used and sealed with a tiny bit of glaze.
