“Those are lovely” someone said.
“You really should sell your jewelry”.
And so, another adventure begins.
I’ll let you know how it turns out.
To usher in the month, I created a Gaelic-inspired wrap bracelet tutorial for A Gilded Life’s Gilded Girl Stash Society.
You may remember the sneak peek of these cute covered buttons , which feature some wonderful vintage ephemera that I had scanned and then printed onto fabric. I incorporated some of these onto the wrap bracelet.
I am waiting patiently for Spring to arrive. The Witch Hazel is blooming, and the snow has pretty much melted away. To keep myself busy on these chilly Winter days I have been playing with Ice Resin. These little heart bonbons were made using a heart candy mold. I added a little charm and some pretty script paper for the backing. They will be turned into pendants, I think.
I have a few projects in mind, and started working on one today. Here’s a sneak peek!
I just love how this little covered button turned out. It features some of my favorite vintage ephemera, that I scanned and then printed onto fabric. Perfect for a little Gaelic-themed project, don’t you think? March is just around the corner, after all!
Gosh is it February already? January was basically a very cold blur. I did have some lovely time in the studio during the past couple of weeks though. Here’s a peek at what I’ve been up to…….
And creating tutorials for A Gilded Life……
I appreciate having the time to work with such glorious and inspiring materials, old and new. Each piece starts as a bit of story in my head, brought to life in a swirl of lace, pearls, rhinestones and other glorious bits. There’s a chance for a bit more snow in a couple of days – perhaps some extra time in the studio?
In the meantime I will play with some fabrics and jewels,
and wish for Spring.
I’m sure everyone has been busy getting ready for the holidays. I have too, but thankfully I still find time for a bit of creative fun in my studio. The December box of supplies arrived from Debbie and Shea of A Gilded Life. I am really enjoying serving as one of their Design Team Members this year. Such lovely treasures to work with – it’s almost impossible not to come up with something elegant and lovely.
Here’s a sneak peak at the latest tutorial I created for A Gilded Life’s Gilded Girl Stash Society.
Just perfect for an evening out on the town or a special holiday party!
Here are some of the wonderful projects I have been working on over the past couple of months for A Gilded Life……
These projects were all created with materials from A Gilded Life’s Gilded Girl Stash Society monthly boxes (October and November, respectively). As a Design Team member for A Gilded Life, I have the wonderful opportunity to create tutorials using each month’s materials. The tutorials are posted on the Gilded Girl Stash Society’s private blog. You can find out more about the Gilded Girl Stash Society here. I can’t wait to see what the December box brings!
