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...

Dad's Woodwork...

at long last we've sorted out what stock Dad has left after his very successful show at the local arts centre.

The ALL WOOD shop on GroovyCart has now been updated although I've left some items that have sold & aren't available any more to showcase dad's work

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.
