Interchangeable bead necklace tutorial

Here’s just a quick post, borne out of needing to put something together for you to show you my purchases from Beadcrafty and not being able to find a chuffing eyepin this morning. Anyway I put an order in for some pretties from Beadcrafty and they were very quick to arrive, with friendly customer services […]

Trufflepiglet necklace

I’ve been playing around with some Sculpey recently, and decided to make almost all my chocolates in miniature form and make a necklace for craft fairs. It’s not the most excellent polymer clay work you will have ever seen but I think it fits the bill ๐Ÿ™‚

A little test

I’ve been testing a couple of new resins which will be available to the UK craft market soon but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to talk about it yet or not. Anyway I made this simple necklace with the crazy shapes mould on my website and I actually quite like it ๐Ÿ™‚ These resins […]

Faux seaglass

Using the new Resin Obsession resin, I have developed a technique for making fake seaglass. I have sent a tutorial off to Cindy over at RO for her blog, so you should see it there shortly. I thought I’d share the results with you anyway- I’m going to take out the wire bits and jump […]

Statement necklaces

I want to design some statement necklaces (and some wall art, but I reckon take things one step at a time) in line with the trends at the moment, and maybe some more multi-stranded chain ones for the same reason- my deadline being the 4 day fair I am doing in June. I’m not sure […]

Failure never tasted so good….

I didn’t blog about this before because I was still in the audition stages, but I am now able to talk about it. I went for an audition for a new BBC1 show called “New Brands” after my application form was accepted. It’s sort of an after-Dragons-Den style programme where you get to pitch to […]

Custom order part 4: now finished

I always seem to finish these stages at night when photo taking is rubbish as flash is pretty compulsory! I made the little silver pieces on Monday night and fired them on Tuesday morning, then distressed them with liver of sulphur and a wire brush. Then the findings finally arrived so I could finish putting […]

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 […]

Make 50: Week 35 and 36

Another Heart on Sleeve bracelet for you this time, and I’ve also had a play with some tiny bezels to make “charm” style necklaces.
