Folksy Angels and new presentation

I uploaded my first of a possible two entries into the Folksy Angels competition I mentioned earlier on this month. I made resin tealight holders with pieces of chocolate coin foil embedded inside. Sanding the inside of these was a bitch though, I won’t be making more of these in a hurry! The other possible entry involves spoons. I won’t say any more!

I’ve also been working on a better presentation of my necklaces at craft fairs. Remember my guitar stand tutorial? Well I wasn’t 100% happy with the way it turned out, so some citting and folding, my old damaged tablecloth and two cork pinboards from Ikea later….

Folksy Angels

Continuing the recycling theme from yesterday… I love competitions, especially ones that require a bit of thought. Folksy and We Make Christmas (which I will be demonstrating at) have got together to make a quickie competition (entries must be in by 30th November- yikes!) where you have to make a christmas decoration all or mostly made from bits and pieces found around the home that would otherwise be thrown away. It’s an interesting idea, but feel it might be a little tricky! I do have an idea though and I will share it with you when it’s done- if it works!

The winner gets free Folksy listings and no commission for a year, and as things are going well for me on there at the moment, it could be just what I need!

I came across these on Google today. I love the idea of using recycled materials such as these drinks cans to create beautiful jewellery. It looks just as good as precious metal and I imagine she pierces it the exact same way. Ingenious! My favourites are the “Eco flowers” as shown here.
