One of my favorite days from my vacation, spent with dear Melanie and Rosanne - two very creative peeps. Rosanne had a copy machine and vellum, and I had old botanical books, a great combination for altered art/collage inspiration! Jess from Vintaj had sent me some wonderful samples to create bezels. Melanie torched them, we dapped, stamped, hammered and then filled until our hearts were content.
My series of pendants were inspired by summer's fleeting moments: the play of waves on a shore, dandelions blowing, a bird's song. I'm waiting for some more ICE resin from Bello Modo to add a second layer to a few of the pendants and will show them next week.
Here are few samples from our metal etching days. We made a video review that I will edit soon and share. I LOVE ETCHING!!! I have a pile of etched bezels to fill with polymer clay and will have those done for next week. The copper ones we cut the metal and did the etching.
The brass ones were Vintaj brass blanks. I don't think one can have enough of these in stock. After I get back from LA I'm going to order some of the etching solution and have a creative day with Jess. I know he'd enjoy this process. It reminds me of my old printmaking studio days, so much fun!
You can find these and more in my etsy shop.
