So what do I have to offer you today? Well sometime back I posted a picture of some new jewellery I had been working on and to date I have had some pretty amazing feedback and a couple of requests for purchase. So with that in mind on today's "To Do" list was pricing up the new design starting with the bracelet.
Here are some of the pieces I have made today in readiness to be made up into a bracelet. I will be adding some Czech crystals in coordinating colours along with some wire-work. Excuse the poor quality photograph I took it while they were still drying and had the desk lamp shining down on them. The true colour is more on the red side than orange. I'll take another picture when I've made them all up.
I also painted this papier mache heart box. I bought a few different shaped ones months ago but never got around to doing anything with them. So today while I had the paints out it gave me the opportunity to get one made up. I've used acrylic paint used straight from the tube (my favourite way). There are several layers on the lid to give it lots of texture. The design is the same background stamp I have used for the above bracelet pieces and for the Christmas Card Trees I made in a previous post. The base of the box is half red and half black again the pictures were taken at my work desk with the light shining over the top but the colours are more or less correct.
I hope you've enjoyed reading today's post. If you would like to see what other crafter's/designers have been making why not pop on over to Wendy's blog and check out the links in her Handmade Monday post.
