New Resin Creations

Playing with resin lately, a few new items in  my shop:


I hand painted these galaxy pendants using nail polish, then filled with resin.

Happy New Year!

And just like that, another year has flown by....

Not much going on in my shop, not feeling very creative so far this year.  Probably because I am still in vacation mode.  We spent a week in Florida over the holidays.  The weather wasn't overly warm, but it was still warmer than the negative temperatures back home!  I collected a lot of seashells, hoping to get some things made with them.

Here's a couple of new things I did get made up, getting ready for Valentine's Day!

True Love Pendant

Music Heart Pendant

And here's a picture from Florida, dreaming of warmer weather!

Finally Fall - Free Shipping Special

After temperatures being much above average for October, the weather is finally more seasonal.  I went out this last weekend, before it cooled down, and enjoyed the fall colors.  I know most people like the cooler fall weather, but I really enjoyed those 70s and 80s!










New in my shop, pendants made of real maple leaves embedded in resin:

My New Dremel 4000

My latest project, drilling some glass and stones with my new Dremel 4000 I got for my birthday. 

Learned two things today:

 1. Petoskey stones are softer than beach glass.

 2. Hold on tight or they become tiny projectiles! 




Not sure if I will be selling these as supplies or making into jewelry.  Probably both!

Copper Pendants Now Available in My Etsy Shop

I have now listed a few of the etched copper pendants in my Etsy shop, after tweaking the patina on them just a bit. I decided not to punch holes in them yet, giving the customer the choice of how many and where.  Hoping to make up a few more, also want to make up some bronze metal clay pendants and toggles in my kiln to list as well, so I have added a new section to my shop, Handmade Supplies. Hope you check it out!

Science Experiment

    So my latest endeavor, copper etching. I drew on the copper rounds with a sharpie marker, then used a mixture of muriatic acid and hydrogen peroxide to etch the copper. The details don't stand out as much as I'd hoped, especially on the mermaid, I think I need thicker lines. Love the horse head though!
