FUN WITH JEWLERY

This month I am teaching with fellow artist Stephanie Jones a Jewlery class at Stamp Antonio Arts in San Antonio. This is a new passion I have stumbled into which I am having a wonderful time coming up with new inspirations. So I thought it might be fun to show everyone what I have been coming up with and invite you all to come take my class if you will be in the San Antonio Area on the 30th...or just have fun at home creating works for yourself or for gifts (it is never to early to start thinking about Christmas). So sit back and enjoy the show and at the end there will be a HUGE surprise for you all!


ASIAN CANVAS PIN

for this I used a wonderful 2x2 mini canvas that I found at Micheals in the art supply area, a bottle cap to place a 1" circle image in (I got the image from Gecko Galz), red twine by May arts, beads by Blue Moon and a great asian script stamp by Studio 112.



LITTLE SHRINE PENDENT

For this little pendent I got a mini shrine from Retro Cafe (they are our Shop of the month listed on the left side) and a cute little bird image from Gecko Galz Aviary collection, gold UTEE, glossy accents and glimmer mist to add color to the shrine.



TREE OF LIFE PENDENT

This was a fun pendent to make because not only did I get to try my hand at wire wrapping but altered a domino with paper, paint ad alcohol inks.



MERMAIDS DELIGHT PENDENT

To create this pendent I took a domino and brushed on clear stickles then alcohol inked it with juniper and shell pink then sprayed with polly seal spray which can be purchased at Hobby Lobby in the spray adhesives. Then I found this amazing glass mermaid at Micheals and adhered it on with glossy accents along with a filigree bead.




NEVER MORE PENDENT

Okay so I am way into altering dominos lol, this one I painted using alcohol inks then adhered the crow image and painted the entire domino with glossy accents. Once it was dry I added the copper bail and the decorative finding I found at a junk fair.




LEONARDOS CAPTAIN PENDENT

This domino I painted with copper acrylic paint then once it was dry I stamped a Leonardo Divinci image on the top using black Staz On then added glossy accents to seal in image. Last I added a copper bail on top using glossy accents.



WELL OILED MACHINE

Okay this one was amazingly fun...again I started with a domino and alcohol inked with Butterscotch, ginger and ecspresso then sprayed with a polly sealant this makes the colored run diffrently for a cool oil effect (make sure you get the glossy sealant). Then I added some Tim Holtz metal cogs to the top with glossy accents for a true steam punk look.


I hope you enjoyed my little collection and now I want to give every one the chance to win some fantastic domino and bottle cap ephemera from Gecko Galz.....you will get 4 sets of collage sheets and all you have to do is leave a comment to this thread then next Wendsday we will randomly choose a winner!
