Much of my inspiration comes from nature. Here are a few shots taken using my phone while out walking.
Nothing has been altered or enhanced. Mother Nature is amazing! I get so much joy from nature and my daily walks are my mediation. Enjoy!
One of the many things that got me interested in designing jewelry is vintage jewelry. Then one day while perusing the internet I came across a site that had vintage brass stampings. Many of which were used in jewelry design. When I saw them I immediately became obsessed with purchasing as many as I could… but then what? Well….the rest is history, why not make some jewelry!
It has been a while since I have posted anything. Guess the daily routine of life sets in and the time management skills go missing! In August I posted about the “travel box”. A quick recap of what this is: It is a jewelry creating challenge that is taking place at B’Sue Boutiques Creative Group with the help of Paula Gaskill. Inside the box are various jewelry creating goodies. Each participant chooses a few items to use and places a few items from their stash and mails it to the next participant on the list. We were then given the task to create a piece of jewelry using the items taken from the box. We were then given a “reveal” date to reveal the finished product. Mine was at the beginning of October. These are the pieces I chose.
In addition to the items taken from the box, I used a brass crescent necklace blank that I wrapped in sari ribbon and wire.
I wired on the beads,hung the pendant and used some vintage chain. This was a great and fun challenge for me as this is a totally different style of jewelry for me.
Thanks for taking the time to check this out.
I have this amazing old German gnome fairy riding a grasshopper figure which I adore. One day I was looking at him and thought ooh he would make a cool pendant. I of course didn’t want to destroy him. I had just discovered Ice Resin and mold making so figured I would give it a shot.
Isn’t he a cutie?
I mixed the Ice Resin per instructions and poured it into the mold. Once the piece was cured I removed it and then painted him.
He’s not perfect but I love him!
