Just a quick update… I have added two new molds to the store. For anyone that plays a video game like Minecraft, you will recognize this type of heart – an 8 bit heart. I original was not going to release this as I just put it together for my hubby but I had so many requests, I decided to release it. I had no idea there were so many 8 bit lovers.
The second one is a Christmas Holly Wreath molded from a vintage brooch. Its the perfect size for a pendant, ornaments, magnets, or of course a brooch. You really could do more than Christmas with it. I just love the long tailed bow on it.
I have 3 more molds to release this week and will be posting updates as they are listed.
Hello, its been quite some time since I posted a blog post. A lot of changes for me since my last post. A lot of them not really worth mentioning but the most major one is that I left my job, so I am currently a full-time starving artist (LOL). I left by choice and am trying it out at least for the holidays. So, in an effort to get myself back into blogging more regularly, I am going to start off with something simple – a jewelry update. If you watch my videos, you might have seen a quick glimpse of these almost a year ago. It really is much more fun to create than the sell. I am slowly beginning to catch up on my jewelry… all the mundane chores of sanding, glazing, adding screw eyes, adding wire-wrapped bails, etc.
Anyway, I have been hoarding these pieces for quite some time partly because I have not seen anyone else do something like this and was not sure if I wanted to share them with the world and partly because I love their saturated glittery and opalescent colors so much and the sharp contrast with the black acrylic and thought I might just keep them for myself but a girl can only wear so much jewelry. I have added about 5 so far and am adding a few more every day. All my jewelry is listed on etsy as its much easier to keep track of there which you can find by clicking here.
I am thinking about selling kits and instructions on how to make these. If anyone is interested, please leave a comment below.
It has been quite some time since I updated my blog. Do you ever get in one of those creative funks? Hopefully it won’t last long. Probably a nice order of new product would fix it which I haven’t done lately, might be time for some shopping. 🙂 I have been working on finishing of pieces and making jewelry. I have also been practicing and working on some polymer clay sculpted pieces. Most of my molds have been designed by me and build from materials I had manufactured but I wanted to take it a step further and actually sculpt them. I have a whole tray of them I have been working on and show a few in the video below. Not perfect but I think they will make nice resin jewelry pieces.
In addition, I have finally released some new molds. Some of these have been in the works for months but just didn’t get to it. Watch out for a a lot more because I have a drawer of ideas and pieces still to go. Right now the new pieces are two different types of thought bubbles, teddy bear head, teddy bear fully body, and a panda head. Take a look at the video below to check them out and you can also see some of the pieces I have been finishing.
I haven’t quite had time for much other than molds and playing catchup. Now that I am out of classes for four months, I am trying to catch up with months worth of etsy listings. I don’t know about y’all but I don’t feel like I can really make new resin pieces until I finish with the ones I have already made. I have a good sized bin full of really nice pieces just waiting for me. The making of the components is always the fun part – putting them together and listing them not as fun but slowly I am trying to list a couple along with my new set of molds I released late last night.
If anyone has any suggestions of what you might like to see, I would welcome the suggestions.
It has been a long time coming but I finally have some new items on my etsy. I will be slowly adding items to the store. I started with some Hello Kitty pieces. Watch out soon for some molds of my own to be added but for new jewelry.

No photographs just yet but I spent a huge amount of time over the weekend trying to weed through my bucket of nearly complete pieces and get them ready to be strung. I love some of the newer molds but unless you do something with the surface of things like Hello Kitty, you can’t make out her face at all. So I was busy painting and adding color to some pieces. I also collaged some of my steampunk basic shapes resin pieces. I really love the way they turned out. I also completed another tree pendant. It started out life as a slightly grey transparent piece and turned into a beautiful happy tree scene complete with swing and the saying Live-Love-Laugh. Anyway, I did do a video. Not the greatest lighting in this video but you can still see some of the pieces. Next step, wire wrap and pictures.
