2014 September 5

I am always astounded by the types of materials that can be mixed together to make jewelry. It seems like no matter what materials you like, you can combine them together into something special. Here are some great patterns and inspiration for you.

Ice Resin + A Crochet Piece = Mixed Media Jewelry Tue, 12 Aug 2014 01:00:34 -0700

To make pretty jewellery with my crochet hook I have been looking for the perfect product to stiffen my yarn. ICE Resin can do the job! I turned a crocheted flower into a piece of jewellery in no time just by adding ICE Resin. Tip!! Like paper, the yarn will become slightly translucent if resinated. But as you can prepare your paper before resinating, you also can prepare yarn.

Over the years I’ve learned that amazing things can come from a humble spool of wire. Dead soft wire can be manipulated with agile fingers into swirls, loops, letters, words, organic wire beads, clasps, and more. Introduce some jewelry pliers and household mandrels into your techniques and the sizes and shapes you can create increases exponentially.

Sometimes it’s just not enough to express ourselves via one art medium, so I thought I’d mix it up today by focusing on art to wear: mixed-media jewelry. Accessories are such a personal thing—our jewelry helps to define us by showing what we like, and who we are (I usually go for earth-toned beads and feather earrings, but will sport a little timeless silver for a business occasion, for example). Of course, my collection wouldn’t be complete without some leather pieces as well.
