Colored laser transfers are popping up again on all kinds of shapes. France’s Sonya Girodon transferred some favorite image patterns onto square beads to create these fetching earrings.
Then Australia’s Wendy Jorre de st Jorre (who is a caner at heart) couldn’t resist putting her dogs on her arm using transfers draped over domed oval bases to create a graceful and heartfelt bracelet.
Wendy was following Debbie Crothers’ nicely presented CraftArtEdu tutorial which shows how to shape the beads and add spatters and bits of sparkle.
With all the images we’re accumulating on phones and cameras it’s great to come up with ways to put our photos to use.
See more of Sonya on Pinterest, Flickr and Facebook. Catch Wendy on Facebook, her site, Pinterest and in this interview on Blue Bottle Tree.
Sonya Girodon ,
Thank you for this feature, Cynthia! I believe that there are still so many more interesting things to discover with polymer clay.
I about ten days ago I used a laser print transfer as the “garden” for the opening of my fairy door. The possibilities polymer clay affords never ceases to amaze me! Love the idea that I can capture my dog and keep her close on a piece of jewelry.
Oh the photo transfer with the pooches is adorable. Would make a cute memorial bracelet, so your four legged BFF can be with you always…
