1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Resin Moulds on: October 04, 2008 08:15:39 AM

I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of somewhere I could buy some silicon resin moulds (the flexible type). I've got myself a wide variety of fancy ice cube trays which work well, but I really want some plain shapes - rectangles or ovals etc. The 3 by 5 cm size range would be great but any size really - just bigger than standard ice cube size.

Thanks for looking and many thanks to anyone who comes up with anything! Smiley
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Resin rings on: September 15, 2008 11:33:37 AM

These are the latest resin rings I have been making. I'm new to resin and have had to have quite a few attempts to get things right but I think I've finally managed to make something half decent!

Thanks for looking Grin
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First resin success on: August 30, 2008 03:16:50 PM
I bought some resin a few weeks ago but wasn't very successful with it at first. However I've finally made something I'm happy with. Thanks to GothChics for her helpful hints!

I was wondering of anyone has any advice on what I could seal paper with when I use it in resin. Also I've been trying to use some of those foil stickers (I have seen people use them succesfully) however the colours keep running. Any ideas as to what I could seal those with would be very gratefully received! I live in the UK so products I would be able to get over here would be best if possible.

Thanks for looking Grin

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Drift wood treasures necklace on: January 20, 2008 02:31:21 PM
Hello everyone,

This is a necklace I made from a piece of drift wood that I picked up on the beach. I rubbed some gold acrylic in to give it highlights, glued on some gold chain and pearls and added an anchor button. Finally I drilled a hole with my Dremel.

Hope you like it! I would love one day to sell my jewelry - I like to think my designs are a bit different and I would love your opinions/comments!

Thanks Grin

Hello everybody,

I found this shell last year and kept it as I thought it would make a nice necklace (especially as it already had a nice hole at the top!) I filled it with a mixture of pearls, beads, an anchor button and a necklace charm that I lost some of the stones out of ages ago!

I am quite pleased with the results:

Thanks for looking Grin
7  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Pink and black shoes with buttons on: October 19, 2007 06:07:27 AM
Hello everybody,

These started out as a pair of light blue flats (sorry I didn't take before pictures). I used acrylic paint and a permanent marker pen to do the checky design.

I'm obsesed with buttons so obviously I had to include some somewhere!

Thanks for looking Grin
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two new necklaces on: October 02, 2007 05:55:16 AM
Hello everybody,

Just thought I'd show you a couple of things I've been making

The charm to the side is a little bow just incase you can't work it out - sorry my pictures aren't very good!

I got this idea from a thread that was one here a couple of weeks ago asking how to make plastic jewelry. I cut this diamond shape out from plastic from an icecream tub. It's actually quite strong!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Buttons and pearl necklace on: September 30, 2007 08:35:36 AM
Hello everyone,

I just finished making this last night

I attched the buttons and pearls together using wire then finished the ends off with little loops that attach to the chain.

Me modelling it!

I am in love with buttons at the moment!!!

Thanks for looking! I love comments!!! Grin

Hello everyone,

I've just finished making this bag. It's made from a piece of vinatagey material I bought for 80p and some chain and a button that I already had. As I only used half the material it came out total cost at 40p! Grin

I would appreciate any comments! Thanks Cheesy
