When I saw these cowboy boots charms I immediately thought they'd make a great present for a line dancing fan - there's also a matching bracelet.

This bracelet has lots of gardening themed charms - some of them are really cute!

photographing jewellery

I was browsing MISI recently looking for christmas pressies & realised how nice some peoples photos were. Mine were definitely not up to scratch & I needed to "up my game". Sometimes it feels like I spend longer trying to get good photos of the jewellery than it takes to actually make it! I got a selection of wallpaper samples to act as the backgrounds as well as some of our hardback books with nice print and photos. I've spent most of the past week on my knees, camera in hand, in front of the french windows. The photo editing software has been invaluable.

These are just a few examples. I've now started on GroovyCart but there's a lot more stock on that shop to work through...

another resin pendant

as promised in my previous post - here's one of the blue resin shapes - made up into a pendant, with a pretty sterling silver bail and chain

I'm a bit obsessed at the moment - as you've probably realised - with adding glass paint to resin during the curing process. You get a completely different result depending on how "sticky" the resin is. I've just mucked up a batch by adding the paint too late & it hasn't worked at all. I think that's the fascination - if I knew what was going to happen I'd have lost interest - lol!

This pendant is available from my misi shop

new resin necklace & earrings

my favourite word seems to be "playing"...
I've been playing with resin & glass paints again - I just love seeing what happens coz it never works the same way! This necklace is now mine - my favourite colours!

I've got some more of these shapes on the go but this time in blues shades - they look like they're going to be really pretty but I won't know until I demold them.
These earrings have been made the same way & I'm going to list them on Folksy - I seem to be neglecting my shop on Folksy...

new earrings

We've just got a laptop which I'm slowly getting to grips with...
I've added two new pairs of earrings today

These ones are on sterling silver ear wires. They are handmade resin hearts - I created the pattern by adding glass paint to clear resin at different stages of the curing process. I'm really pleased with the result & thought I'd better list them before I was tempted to wear them myself! They are for sale in my MISI shop

I love these heart shaped frames - I've put millefiori stars in the frames. They are for sale on my JKJ shop on GroovyCart - here's the link

new jewellery and beads

I added some new stock to Just K Jewellery and Just K Beads today...

I was playing around with some images of a red lipstick kiss and decided to see what they'd look like cast in resin for pendants. These ones are available from my Groovycart BEADS shop. I'm going to make another batch for a funky bracelet.

christmas presents for men

I've been adding some stock to my shops with a thought towards original, novelty christmas presents and stocking fillers for the men in our lives. Not meant to be serious or long lived, just something to make them smile on christmas morning.

I've made some more sweetie cuff links which are now on Just K Jewellery
Also these fun resin key rings which have love heart sweets and my own digital graphics cast in the resin.

trying different sweets in my jewellery

I've been trying different sweets in my resin beads and pendants. I'm sure the lady in the pick 'n' mix shop thinks I'm mad as I inspect the sweets carefully - you'd be surprised how big most sweets are - especially when you're going to cast them in resin rather than eat them - lol!

and a pair or handmade resin cabochons with sterling silver ear postsall available from Just K Jewellery
