New Creation!

I've been playing with resin a bit more here and there. This particular creation includes two links that I created with resin. I love the contrast of the riot of color with the antiqued metal tones!
This creation has meaning on many different levels, from the surface to the profound, and could even serve as advice on how to attain Nirvana!

Title: Advice
Ingredients: Green Girl Studios pewter lotus, metal and resin links, aluminum, metal and sterling silver clasp.

I'll leave you with this picture and wish you-all a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

The Clockwork Swan

The title of the earrings just finished and that were inspired by The Silver Swan . This mechanically automated Swan was invented in 1773!!!
click here to see it!

And here are the earrings!

One last note before I'm out the door:
If you are in Saint Paul, near the University of MN, consider stopping by!
I'll be at Audacious Alchemy (759 Raymond Ave Saint Paul) from 7-9pm or so for God/dess Night!
Audacious Alchemy has Yoga, a Vibe Bar, Food on Purpose and all sorts of hand-made goodies including some of my creations!

The Voyager

which is the title of my first earrings created with resin!
I loved the sepia-color to these hand-made cats by Earthenwood Studio and I envisioned pairing them with these metal photos frames to evoke an old copper-plate photo album feeling. The idea being snapshot of a globe-trotting cat complete with antique maps with a compass rose and a 'sea monster'.
Title: The Voyager
Ingredients: hand-wrought ceramic cats, metal, brass, glass, recycled paper, resin, surgical steel earwires.

Other news:
I also wanted to give an update on my show this last weekend. This was a two-day show and was a lot of fun!! This was the second year of our participation at Pagan Pride and it was good! Some folks sought us out, remembering us from last year and many were new people to the show and to us. It was a pleasure to meet everyone and we're looking forward to being back again next year!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by to chat, browse and adopt!

One last news tidbit: If you've seen any of our creations at Sacred Path Center in Saint Paul, MN, USA and were traveling back there to adopt them, these have now come home with me. While I needed these creations with me for the upcoming Winter Holiday season, I am excited to see the Center's development plans and am looking forward to their fruition in the months to come! Feel free to contact me about creation adoption inquiries or arrangements and pop on over to SPC here for more details on what is moving and shaking with them!

Playtime with Resin!

This is a photo of my first round of playing with Ice Resin!
I think these pendants turned out pretty for a first try!
I can see a lot of possibilities for these and I am looking forward to more experimentation...especially with glitter!
