It’s been a while since I talked a bit about what I’ve been up to with my handmade jewellery making. I try to fit in some jewellery making into my schedule, as I find it very relaxing and I haven’t stopped enjoying it ever since I started. I’ve recently explored more with air-dry clay and stamped style jewellery. These are some new pieces I’ve made, Ethereal Plant Beings Pendants:
These imprints are actually drawings, made by Boyfriendlovlie, that I’ve nicked used.
Here are his original drawings:
These are entitled ‘Observing the Observer’ © 2012 Kevin Mangaroo.
They are also available as t-shirts…
Boyfriendlovlie has been drawing all his life, from monsters to cute characters, environment and landscapes, comic book and concept art. With illustration and graphic arts as his specialization, he has worked in various fields. He particularly enjoyed his last job as a Concept Artist at Realtimeworlds UK which was a game production studio.
A few samples of his work here:
For my part, I’ve sent these drawings to be made into stamps that I then applied on the clay. The indentation are then enhanced with acrylic paint, after which I coat the pendant with a layer of eco-friendly resin to protect the paint and increase durability.
I really like how they’ve turned out.
Here’s another one I’ve made inspired from nature. ‘I Heart Trees Pendant’. This one is my own drawing made into a stamp.
How do you like them?
Pendants are available in my Etsy store. They all come in a handmade linen bag and kraft paper pillow box, ready for gifting.
