Custom order part 3 and your help needed please!

The horse hair and ashes custom order is nearly complete, I just need to swap some of the findings for sterling silver ones when they arrive (hopefully today) and make the silver name bits. I think I should be able to add the full name to the pendants, but a small initial might be better for the bracelets.

 

I cast a block of resin in bands and then cut it and sanded it with the bands going across the ring. However I now think it looks a bit plain and is lacking something. Any ideas? Do you think I should sell them in sets of 3? They won’t be very cheap because of all of the sawing and drilling and sanding involved, so hoping there’s a way of selling them individually still. Maybe I should just make them thicker?

Custom orders

I have quite a lot of custom orders going on at the minute. I have a special project involving locks of baby hair with Jellybelly*Jellybrain plus trying out bubble rings with photos for a lady too:

Normally I can do photo rings with the flatter square rings I make, but we tried this as an experiment.

I’ve also been making two bracelets and two necklaces incorporating horse hair and- for the first time- ashes. I’m quite pleased how the ashes came out, it looked horrible and sludgy when I mixed them in, but once set, the heavier pieces sank to the front, giving a nice granite-y effect!

As usual I have a never ending pile of sanding to do! I’ll share some more pictures as I go with these ones.

Make 50: Week 39 and 40

Last week I made this bracelet and additional charm as a custom order with horse hair and silver stamped plaques.


These hairsticks were made this week and are now available in my Folksy shop.

Present for Grandma

My grandma moved into her new flat this weekend, and out of her window she can see a field where people can keep their horses for grazing. She loves to watch them, so this gave me an idea for Christmas! I found this lovely print on Etsy and come pay day, it will be mine 🙂 The shop is Bruckner Cowboy Art: http://brucknercowboyart.etsy.com
