New in January 2019
We don't run our market in January and early February because of the heat. It is an opportunity to recuperate or "play" with new designs and methods. I took the opportunity to expand my range of free-form resin jewelry. It took a while but I think I am on the right track. The first image is my new design, the others are existing designs.
I lovved the use of veneers made by fluid art either in resin or on polymer. They are flexible so a flat resin shape can be twisted (as above), poured over a sculptural piece (green necklace below) or cut to a shape. I bought some pouring paints but my first tries ended up with the colours blending more than I liked so I added an overlay of splatters and strings. The results were interesting with a lot of depth to the colours.
The twisted resin necklace and the snake bar in green above were two of my new necklace designs. The next two images are also new designs (new to me, I mean). They are prototypes and both labour intensives but with experience maybe that will improve.
