Resin pendants in the making...

These lovely kitties gone fast so I need to do a little more of them and I will add some new projects this time...
The images are going to be decoupaged over the glass tile.



Ready for some layers of varnish...  I am adding one of my old graphic designs for my glass pendants section, "Victorian on Red" It will look great!



I use a waterbase varnish to cover and protect the image in my resin/glass pendants... 
Behind you can see some new polymer clay creations :)



When the varnish is completely dry it's time to pour the resin... I use the Envirotex Lite one, you can find it at Michaels...  You know what?  I will cover a couple of my polymer clay focal jewelry pieces with resin and see what happens ;)



Resin already poured... ready for the curing rack.
I will see you in two days dear pendants :)



Now, I need to keep working on my orders!  Have a wonderful day everyone!

Hugs,

Susy

Rustic look. Polymer clay jewelry creations.

I had a few stamps I love in my hands and some clay with lovely colors, so I made these:

Rustic botanical pendant necklace on light blue

Little bird dangle earrings, kidney style.

Rustic botanical pendant necklace on warm pink.

Using some brown acrylic paint for the patina-like finish, I give a rustic look to my new stamped jewelry creations... 

Working on new creations for the season right now... keep tuned, thanks for your time :)

Enjoying Robin Maria Pedrero's art

I recently had the pleasure to trade my artwork with Robin Maria Pedrero's art prints.  She is a lovely lady and an exceptional artist, I love her paintings and the way she harmoniously combines the colors, always finding inspiration from nature and adding her personal and unique touch of fantasy... 


Pink Poppies in Paradise. Print.

I feel relaxed and cheerful at the same time when I see her paintings and I think that's what she wants to communicate, peace and joyfulness...

Happiness. White bird with flowers card.
 
Robin is a member of the Florida Artists Hall of Fame and an elected member of the Pastel Society of America. Capturing the spirit and energy of life in rhythmic colors, Robin uses translucent acrylic layers in her response to what catches her eyes and her heart, happily evoking moods of joy and serenity.

Garden of Love card

She is also a proud member of Unique Women in Bussines, a very supportive team of ladies that I am member of too :)

She says, “I personify nature through color and movement evoking moods of transition, whimsy, joy and serenity, expressing myself through mediums like charcoal, pastel, graphite, colored pencil, and ink used in layers with acrylic paint on various papers, wood, or canvas. I use color to emulate the energy and spirit of nature. Music and rhythm play a role in my process and seep into the movement of my creation.”


I think her paintings reflect the way she looks the world around her... it's like dreaming in colors... she found her own muse because she is obviously a person at peace with her world who love to share her art from the heart...

Thank you so much Robin, I am really enjoying my print and cards, they are like candy for my eyes :)

Love,

Susy
