1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Resin mourning jewelry? on: March 07, 2009 09:18:13 AM
I've searched and well I found a little about mourning jewelry I never found what I was looking for.

I've been toying with getting into resin lately as it has many possibilities for me(as a crafter and a fine artist who is getting into mixed medias).  Well last month my brother was brutally murdered.  My mother's only request in all of it was for a lock of his hair.  She wanted to put it in a locket but wasn't pleased with the locket she bought.  I'd been interested in Victorian hair jewelry for a while and thought about doing some in resin.  The first problem is well I can't find any how to's for Victorian mourning jewelry online just examples.  I know that they're usually under glass but I just feel like resin would be better.  Second I can't find any examples of hair cast in resin.  Of course when I do it I'll use my own hair as practice but before I go out and buy me a buncha resin supplies I just needed to consult the crafty gods of the net.  I've bought some vintage adjustable ring bases and lockets and charm bases and I've told my mom my plans so the next step is to just get the resin and start. 

So any advice? Bad idea? Sounds like it'll work?

Cute!  I think the reason Aurora is always in pink is 1) Flora's a bit bossy, and 2) it makes her distinguishable from Cinderella (not that they're the same dress, but "blonde princess in blue" usually means Cinderella these days).

What would be really cute would be a mini Flora in the corner just about to zap Aurora back into pink...   Wink 

 In case I didn't already say so, it looks great! 

Yeah my niece has trouble with them, though she seems to always think cinderella is aurora ( doesn't bother me Wink but I like em both anyway)
also I'll be damned if I ever am forced to put Aurora in a hot pink dress >(

Finished the Princesses!
I put that glaze that I'd used on the stars of the baby's room on certain parts off the outfits since princesses should sparkle!
To see the colors proper here's a no flash image fromt he side


And head on with flash with glaze visable


Aurora gets the blue dress because she's my fav and it's the dress I prefer :p
I asked SiL before I did it though since in the source picture(and nearly everywhere else Sad )she's in pink

Those patterns are very easy! I'd say just dive into it and you wont have to spend alot of $$ to get the materials.  If you have a walmart that still has a sewing area scope the dollar table you might get some great finds!  Or a clearance table at any fabric store.  It's a costume so quality isn't exactly a high priority and I imagine that costume you linked is probably all cheap fabric anyway.  I'm making a fancy regency era dress out of $1/yard finds from walmart!  Also if you have a hancock fabrics near you you can check out the sales flier and get the pattern for as little as $1.99 (sometimes even $0.99)  Check McCalls and Butterick too they might also have good ones as those patterns are sort of costume standards.

started the princess one got the rest of it all drawn out today
She shares a room with her grandparents so this is her little corner:

you can sort of see my source images taped on the wall here




I arranged some "Little Princess" clip art around the castle my SiL wanted (since Niece is a toddler toddler princesses are the thing for us right now)


I had to track down box art from a "little tinker bell" that they repackaged for the Disney Fairies line so I couldnt find the full image so I had to kind of piece her together using the way the princesses were drawn as refference

Tomorrow I start painting!  blending acrylics is going to be frustrating I'm used to oil paint...oh well I have some retarder to help me.
