Thanks Theresa, it was - the gold alone cost over £1400 it was a bit nerve wracking cutting into the metal to be honest- although I had made a silver prototype first so knew it should work , if I didn’t melt it all.
Gorgeous!!! Reminds me of some Roman jewellery I saw earlier in the year - I really admired the craftsmanship in that too!
A wee bit of ‘Blackwork’ one traditional the other in variegated thread for an exchange on a craft forum
Some something for myself
Something I made as a ‘How To’ Tutorial on a craft forum
it’s not amazing but it’s a bit different to my other cards - i made this shrink plastic morrissey card for my brother’s friend.
Here are some more Christmas decorations Ive made, il be sending them to ta big Christmas Ornaments fair. Apologies for the awful photos, some are complete, others mid make.
It is amazing! Love<3
thanks so much : - )
Ive just heat embossed some mdf shapes, I havnt rubber stamped for ages but glad im getting back into it.
My making time has been short to non-existent recently, a slew of autumnal lurgies and an avalanche of homework has landed on the kids, so everything has had to go on hold. But last night I actually found time to make this sweet little bracelet and it’s not for sale, I’m keeping it! Yay!
I like to make glass box Xmas decorations which have evolved into this doll like decoration. I soldered a glass box with a moon charm inside, then worked out I can make beaded arms and legs. The head is a glittered bead with a picture of a vintage ladies face glued on. I added a skirt and a crown because every gal needs to be well dressed. I have a couple of other ideas for these decorative dolls in the pipeline. I like to call them Spirits, I hope to make some Christmas spirits I the next few weeks.
I do these box frames which I sell at craft fairs, but I’m yet to list any on Folksy as I’m a bit scared of posting them! What do you think?
Fab! Just love it!!
Plenty of bubble wrap and a sturdy cardboard box ought to do it, wouldn’t you think? They certainly look good. Worth listing a couple and then posting with insurance just in case, and see how it goes?
Thanks @0122chrisg, I think as long as I put some stiff card over the glass before the bubble wrap and cardboard to stop anything punching through and breaking the glass I should be ok. Might take the plunge and list some x
Good luck! Hope you sell lots!
