Clear moulds

I got this brilliant but very expensive clear silicone and decided to make a ring mould- it’s great because now I will be able to see exctly where things are as they are casted, so no uneven parts ever again! It’s very bubbly though because of the thickness, but I don’t have a vacuum machine to suck them all out. I might start selling these but they’d have to be around £8 each to be viable- do you think it’s worth it?

Time for something new

Christmas shoppers are upon me, which means I’ve been a bit busy and un-bloggy. I’ve also had some family issues and a large quantity of shop wholesale orders, for instance I have a new exclusive stockist in Israel coming soon! I also need to list my Jammie Dodger range on my site but I need to make the pictures a tad better.

Anyway, I thought it was probably worth making something new to make me feel less like I’m churning out the same stuff, and lets me play with a new mould 🙂 Will be listed in the usual places shortly.

Here is Wedgewood Cat (as OH calls him):

Down on the Farm and a new supplies shop- exciting stuff!

As newsletter subscribers will know, I’ve started delisting some of my ranges, some of which will merge and others I feel uninspired by and don’t feel like making again. This was partially to streamline and partially because I wanted to introduce a new range… and so here’s a sneak peak of my new range “Down on the Farm”!

Also I have taken the decision to open a supplies shop on Etsy and Folksy. I’m waiting for my delivery of ribbons, but once I have them, you can expect to see some of these pretties…

Spotlight on… Jujulee

It’s been a few months since I last featured laser cut jewellery, so I think I’m allowed to show you some more! This time it is Etsy seller jujulee’s turn. My absolute favourite pieces are the”diamond” rings. Very cute and inexpensive!

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?

Spotlight on… Hinomaru

These rings are really unusual, chunky and affordable! Made by Hinomaru (http://hinomaru.etsy.com) in Japan from fired clay, check them out!

Gone dotty…

I’ve been playing around with the new two part silicone ring mould from Resin  Obsession (http://www.resinobsession.com) these last few days, and whilst I threw away my first attempt (just came out in pieces) these are my second and third attempts…

I am quite pleased with the rough effect and the mix of opaque and translucence, so I think I will make more and create a “Gone Dotty” range! What do you think?

New stuff going on

I’ve been making loads of new stuff recently, so thought I’d share some here as my blog post today 🙂

  

  

  

Glue and Glitter collaboration!

It’s very rare for me to update twice in one day, but I had to share this. I made some cabs for Laura at Glue and Glitter in return for my logo for Rothley Craft Farm that she kindly made for me (more on this when I am in a position to share information), and I’ve seen that she’s started to add them to her Folksy shop and got excited 🙂

Laura is an illustrator, and I encapsulated some of her designs, which she is turning into rings and possibly pendants, etc soon too. I wasn’t sure about the solid blue as it was a new colour I was trying out but I think I’ve decided I like it now! Check out Glue and Glitter on Folksy: http://Glueandglitter.folksy.com
