Fabric in Resin Jewellery

Following on from my previous posts another type of jewellery I've been making is fabric, lace or ribbon in resin.  This works nicely as the resin enhances the texture of the fabric - it sort of makes it "pop".

Here are a few examples of my work...

Pink Paisley Pendant - this is ribbon, there's another one in blue
Blue Pattern Pendant - this is Liberty of London fabric
Cream Flower Pendant - again with Liberty of London fabric
Blue Pendant with Gemstones - more Liberty fabric
Tartan Cufflinks - this is tartan ribbon
Union Jack Flag Pendant - this is ribbon with a lovely vintage style appearance
As with my previous posts there's many more items for sale using fabric in resin in my shops on GroovyCart, Wow Thank You and Etsy

Button Jewellery

Having completely neglected this blog for the past few months I am now trying to catch up.

After my last blogpost about using pressed and dried flowers in my resin jewellery again I also revisited using buttons.  When I first started working with resin I used buttons from my own button box.  This time I've been buying buttons - there is a vast choice of buttons to buy, already sorted by size and colour.  You actually need small buttons or inclusions in resin jewellery.  I've also enjoyed making button bracelets.

Here's a selection of what I've been making recently

as before there is more button jewellery and buttons in resin jewellery available from all my shops

Flower Jewellery

One of the first things I tried when I started working with resin all those years ago was casting real pressed flowers and leaves in resin.  In those days I pressed flowers and leaves from my own garden from daisies in the lawn to leaves from my Acer tree when they had just turned glorious autumnal reds. 

Recently I'd fallen out of love with resin - so many people are now making resin jewellery and it was becoming increasingly difficult to come up with new and original ideas.  So I went back to the beginning but this time I bought the pressed and dried flowers and have rediscovered my love of working with resin. I hope you like the 2012 versions of my flower jewellery.
