Rubber stamped images, text paper, heart brad, glitter,
Fingers crossed these are accepted for the PAT at iATC there's definately no hand drawn element on them.
Rubber stamp, handmade paper, flower soft (to imitate coral) shell beads, gel pens, pearlescent paints acetate and gold heart brads and a little bit of glitter
WOW how cool is that my card has been chosen for June at iATC http://www.illustratedatcs.com/info/monthly_ATCs.html
These beads really do have the WOW factor. The photographs were taken today in normal daylight (rather dull and cloudy) but even in this light the beads really DO sparkle.
The revolutionary XILION cut, with its alternating large and small facets, results in distinctively higher brilliance and particularly intense light reflection. In addition, this cut is differentiated from all other products on the market and copyright protected. The increased number of facets enhances the overall appearance of the bead and the rounder belt line result in improved wearing comfort of the finished design.
Hand drawn and coloured with derwent inktense watercolour pencils, button fish and oyster shell. The mermaids tail is done with fusing stewart gill glitterati fibres together I've glued this on in little pieces so you get a nice texture and then have added beads on top (this will also secure the fused glitterati).

My friend Donna Hawk suggested I start with these questions -
- How long have you been making jewelry?
- What got you interested in making jewelry?
- Where do you get your ideas? Do you try to go with trends or just 'do your own thing?'
- What's your favorite piece to make? Why?
- Do you teach classes? if not, would you?
- Is it hard to find places to sell your work?
I made this set to trade at a Switch and Bitch party that was being held in aid of Christies Hospital - basically you take in 3 items and swop them for an item from one of the other attendees. I think when this kind of charity event started people were taking clothes to swop.. However the event has been cancelled as the lady who was organising the event is poorly.
