Jewelry Clay Ornament from a Vase

 My title may have been a bit confusing.
You might be wondering what a vase has to do with this ornament.
 This is the vase!  
I found it antiquing last weekend and just loved this baby cameo feature.
 So, guess what I did?
I made a batch of EasyMold silicone putty and made a mold of the baby!
 The mold turned out brilliantly!
 I then made a batch of Jewelry Clay which I pushed into my mold.  I say "pushed" because I wanted to make sure I got clay into every tiny area and I still managed to miss a spot on the baby's cheek.  Next time I will do this a little slower and by section.
My new baby could easily become a home dec item.  These look like the type of items found in castles on doors and other embellishment.  For today I made the ornament because I wanted to create something sweet for National Craft month.
