I wanted to have a go at making so handpainted jewellery. It turns out that I’m not a great artist in miniature, though I liked some of the simple designs best. I’ve also got hooked on epoxy resin. I’ve tried to preserve flowers, but this is tricky.
These are a few of my favourites – though I think my husband has deleted the photo of the best ones (reasoning, rubbish photo – very rude!) I tried a couple of tree of life designs, but I couldn’t get enough vibrancy in the background. Eventually I did some experiments with phosphorescent paint which I liked. The idea was just to add a bit of ‘glow’, but I had fun charging it up and then trying to get a photo in my dark cellar. Didn’t get a great one but you get the idea!
Soon I’m going to have to start selling some jewellery, just to make some room! I hope you like these.
