Adventures in Resin

I organize a Meet Up group called the
"Jewelry Junkies of the Fraser Valley" (JJFV)
We meet once a month and one of the members usually teach a project.
Here are a few pieces I made during the last meet up.
We used a one part resin that is used for surf boards.





My DH was fishing today

My DH brought home 3 crab and a 14 lb. salmon after a day fishing with friends.
He called and asked that I put the pot of water on to boil.
They were YUMMY.

Time to Re-Organize

I hit a few good garage sales today.  
There were lots of goodies out there and I found a few things for the studio to help get organized.

This Ikea Cabinet was a great find and very good price.
I was just discussing with my DH that I need more shelving above my work area.

 Two matching adjustable lamps help shed new light on my work station.  
I use natural day light bulbs to light the work area.

This tray was a good find.  Each red tray is removable and I now have quick access to components I've made and are ready to be incorporated into one of my jewelry creations.

 Having my little Buster boy keep me company is always nice.

Fold Form Bracelets

FINALLY! SOME STUDIO TIME

With my DH out fishing with his buddies, I thought it was a good excuse to get creative in the studio.

My new Fretz Hammer was my weapon of choice today and to make a few Fold Form Bracelets.
I like all the different textures on the bracelets and the possibilities are endless.  







This bangle isn't fold form but my new Fretz Hammer created a lovely rain effect...


Just set up a little photo tent - home made job so not great but better than I had.

Here's a picture of a necklace I made awhile back.

Many different wire wrapped techniques used in the Big & Beautiful Necklace.
