Jewellery made with scottish stones inlaid in silver was fashionable during Victoria's reign since she loved so much here residence there.
Now, these pieces are very collectable.
I grasped this poor froggie, with old repairs on back and lacking 5 inlaid pieces of jasper and one eye....
4.2cm or 1.5/8" long
3cm or 1.1/8" wide
My usual baking polymer clay wasn't usable on this, because the "glue" used to fill the hollow piece and hold the stones is a kind of resin/bitumen which bubbles and flow everywhere when heated....
So I tried an air curing clay to fill the lacks, domed it, colored with the now famous permanent markers and coated with Judikins Diamond glaze.
The replacement eye was domed thick with a drop of "diamond glaze".
3 hours work... ;-))
