A couple of quick things…

Firstly, the Flickr competition has been extended until Christmas now as I am adding more bezels to the shop later and it would be unfair to release these so close to deadline. The group explains what is goiung on, but basically if you take a picture of anything you have made with a PennyDog acrylic bezel and post it there, you could win a lot more of them!

Secondly I have put some of Penny’s best moments on Facebook, these pictures make me smile and I hope it will help to undo making so many people cry!

I need your help bezel fans!

Since I posted about the cupcake bezel class, it seems loads of people want to get hold of that shape, moreso than the hearts and stars, so I wondered, what other shapes should I start to offer? I plan to introduce the cupcakes to the range very soon, so this is the current list;

* Heart Pendant (black, though white is on the way!)
* Star Pendant (black, again white on the way)
* Bracelet Squares (black, white on the way)
* Bangles (white)
* Circle Pendant (white)
* Cupcake pendant (white)

I’m thinking maybe ring blanks at this stage? Suggestions please! 🙂

Blog and run…

Another uber-quick post, just to let you know that the white bezels are now in stock. These are now not just poly-cemeted togehter, but are extra reinforced around the edges, eliminating any leak problems you may have previously experienced! Don’t forget the bezel competition if you fancy having a go with any of the range!

Also I now have one trial run of pigment to see how it goes and if you guys want more colours!

Patera bezels

I’ve just started selling the Patera range of deep well bezels in my shop. They’re not cheap as they’re made in the US from cast pewter and then coated (the £50 postage and customs bill didn’t help either!). I have a small selection of shapes in antique gold, antique silver, sterling silver and copper. Here’s one I made earlier…

PRESS RELEASE: New Bezels for Resin Exclusively at PennyDog

A range of acrylic bezels- specifically for resin jewellery- now available

PennyDog continues to pioneer contemporary resin crafting in the UK with the introduction of specially designed acrylic jewellery bezels. The initial range features heart and star pendants and square bracelet feature blanks, all with a generous 5mm depth for embedding all sorts of goodies. Uniquely, they also come with a template for cutting fabric and paper to fit inside, making the process so simple and ideal for beginners.

Currently available in black, there are plans for white bezel bangles and circle pendants for late summer. The bezels are laser cut from sturdy acrylic in two sections, then pieced together by hand. Priced at just £2.20 for a pendant, they make creating professional results affordable.

All customers that purchase a bezel can enter their finished creations into a pool on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/groups/pennydogbezelcomp/) to be in with a chance of winning a bracelet bezel set and two further bezels of their choice! The closing date is November 1st 2010, so why not get making this summer?

Bezels and other resin supplies, as well as finished jewellery pieces are available at www.penny-dog.co.uk .

PennyDog exclusive resin bezels!

Coming very soon are these new bezels for resin jewellery! I designed them and then had them prduced in black acrylic, with white versions expected a little later this year depending on how well received these are! They are 5mm deep, so brilliant for embedding more than just fabric and paper.

You also get a template with each one so you can accurately cut paper to go inside, simply draw around the shape and cut just inside of the line.

They are laser cut and then I assemble them by hand. Leave me a comment if there’s a particular shape you would like to see made and it might just happen!

This little square is 1.5cm wide, I plan to sell these as a bracelet kit with 5 pieces, a toggle clasp and jump rings for £7.20, or individual pieces for £1.50 each.

These stars and hearts are 2 inches wide and make very cute pendants. I plan to sell these for £2.20 each.

I only received these samples today and I was so impatient that I didn’t seal the paper in these properly and the glue probably wasn’t completely dry so it went white, so please excuse the rubbishness of these examples and pretend they are really good 😉
