We do a country christmas tree with a big homemade plaid bow at the top. So this year I was going to do plain brown paper (small rolls from the dollar store) wrapped boxes tied with twine and tea dyed "aged" tagges. I found lowes hardware has a huge roll of carpenter paper (in the paint section) it's $9 a way better deal and will do all my wrapping and then much more! Just wanted to share.
I don't have powerpoint or photoshop on my computer and hate to have to spend so much $$$ just to use it for jewelry purposes. I'm not having much luck finding a program, makephotojewerly.com has a program for those 9mm small charms but you can't play with the color. And littlewindows.com has almost the same thing but it's $10 for the Square, $10 for the rectangle, etc and still can't make it black & white or sepha.
How do you size your images for those really small pieces? Is there a certian software that can do some basic small images with out making them too blocky. It would also be great if you can play with the color.
I've been reading and reading all the resin post. I've been practicing and I think I'm ready to make photo jewerly to sell at my small whole in the wall shop. SO I'm looking for pendants, bracelets, and rings at WHOLESALE prices so I can mark them up (labor, resin, findings) and not be too crazy expensive. I've tried- photojewelrymaking.com riogrande.com firemountaingems.com orientaltrading.com coveredinclay.com What I'm really looking for are some cheaper very affordable things to start with and then I can move up to more expensive pieces in sterling.
