Make 50: Week 45 and custom order continued

My make for this week is this pair of earrings, they have fabric embedded inside which gives them an ornate sketchy feel.

I am progressing with the custom order I blogged about in my last post. The pieces are now sanded and polished (sorry for the flash I took it after 10pm last night), I drilled them this morning and started working on the findings, though I need some ribbon clamps and triangular clamps to be delivered before the bulk of the work can be done. I will also be making real silver name tags for them too, so there will be another update…

Make 50: Week 25 – The idea worked!

Remember that rough sketch a few posts ago? Well it turned into a rather nice pair of resin J-hoop earrings! I’m really pleased with how these turned out, I am currently making some silver leaf ones as we speak!

An idea…

Can you tell what it is? I had a query through Etsy today and it got me thinking- I could offer J-hoop style earrings very easily, so I will be having a play with these and see whether the sketch can transform into reality!

Also I have picked 3 people to receive something from me in the pay it forward, they are:
Alix
Katie
Sarah Scott

Don’t forget that you can now blog for participants in your own Pay It Forward now that you have been selected- I’ll get stuff out to you next week once I’ve collected your addresses!

Made and then sold!

I finished making these this morning and within hours of listing them they sold on Folksy for £15.00! I will have to make some more, I’ve kept the listing on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15540017) as I have ordered more gold leaf and will be able to make these up pretty quickly!

New additions to the shop

Some of the pieces I showed you earlier in the week as work in progress are now finished and in my shop www.penny-dog.co.uk
