Hand poured, resin cabochons, with shells I have collected all of my life. Framing them in twine bezels, backs are hand painted. I am still figuring what loop system I want to use, but I have experienced nothing but success as I go along. Getting ready to be a one woman pop up shop at some of our favorite local bars.

The Next Step

Now that the light box is part of the process, I have moved onto bigger ideas. As I have mentioned, getting my feet wet with making jewelry was so easy to do, thanks to crafts stores. Truth be told, I’m not new at this, either. I used to make beaded necklaces and beaded hair wraps for those hippies, when the Dead started coming to Vegas. I made a lot of money…those hippies were rich.

With that said, I have seen the same materials and supplies used, by others, and it doesn’t bother me, I’m fairly certain there are those that I have used the same bits and pieces, after they did. So it is time to make my own, right? My plan, all along, I just got really addicted to stringing up beads, I had to stop and refocus on my research, and what it was I would be doing.

So, if I wanted a pendant, or charm, I’d hit up the store. I would get something like this pendant, which I adore. Now, I have learned how to make this pendant, and others. resin

Not too shabby, for the first run. But I’m not stopping there. I intend to completely able myself to make whatever it is I need. So, molds are next. And it won’t stop there. I just can’t get too far ahead of myself. When your planning to build a new business, and you work everyday to fill it up with inventory, you need to write down the steps of the process, how far you want to take it, and you might as well make the short and long term goals apparent in those notes. This will give you a vision, rather then a light, at the end of the tunnel. I will ad another blog post about the steps I took. Now, back to sanding and finishing these bits.
