On My Table…

In the works

I’ve been play­ing around in my stu­dio, this week and have real­ly enjoyed work­ing on a few sol­der­ing projects. Sol­der­ing is some­thing I kin­da put on the back burn­er for a bit while cre­at­ing my last two books. I get so much sat­is­fac­tion from cre­at­ing items I have visu­al­ized in my head. I’m a true assem­blage girl at heart. The house above has an adorable vin­tage Valen­tine image inside and is cov­ered with a lay­er of resin. The vin­tage flocked flow­ers are a beau­ti­ful shade of pale pink and one is accent­ed with the words “Love is”. I added two small rhine­stones from a vin­tage neck­lace to the key. So I’m sure you fig­ured it out that the title of this pen­dant will be “Love is Key”. I’m going to drill a hole in the top to allow for a beau­ti­ful rhine­stone vin­tage ear­ring teardrop to dan­gle down.

The heart pen­dant is anoth­er sol­der­ing piece that has been fun to work on. I sol­dered the heart shape, added emboss­ing pow­ders then sealed a scanned vin­tage Valen­tine image on top. I attached some red iri­des­cent rhine­stone trim around the out­er edge and added a lay­er of resin. I love how the resin pops the col­ors and inten­si­fies the glit­ter emboss­ing pow­der.

Steampunk Bird

I final­ly fin­ished my Steam­punk Bird pen­dant and list­ed it on Etsy. It’s cer­tain­ly a unique piece and will make a state­ment when worn. It’s a bit pricey but there will nev­er be anoth­er one like it, it took sev­er­al days to make and I tru­ly love it!

If you are want­i­ng to give resin and sol­der­ing a try please feel free to email me or post ques­tions in the com­ment sec­tion. These are real­ly fun tech­niques that used to scare me to death to even think of try­ing. Just remem­ber “An Artist Can­not Fail”.
