Mixed Media Tutorials (2/2/2015)

2015 February 2

Today I found some fun mixed media projects. I think mixed media is so creative and different. You can really make a piece of jewelry that is unique. Whether you capture you own personality, someone else’s or even a precious memory, it’s hard to go wrong.

For this bracelet I decided to focus on the resin bezel technique and bead crochet. I’ve worked with resin before, but hadn’t tried Ruth’s technique of embedding pearls into the resin to make the bezel dimensional. I worked with ICE Resin, which is the most amazing thing ever. I poured it into the pearl-filled bezel, then added a few more pearls on top. Everyone I’ve shown the bracelet to loves that focal piece.

This work is very simple I used Cartographer 6×6 paper pad by Prima, white pen: Pentel Hybrid 1.0, a bezel, some beads and Ice Resin. For to use Ice Resin I follow instruction: I mixed for 1-2 minutes and I waited 5 minute and then I poured into bezel I scared when I saw many bubbles, but don’t worry! after a while minutes they vanish.

Somehow I then started to think about jewelry and my huge wings shrunk to be a tiny necklace. But I guess no harm done as I really enjoyed doing this piece! First I drew a tiny pair of wings to a piece of cardstock using a pencil and the Pitt pens. Then using an epoxy bubble cap I turned that drawing into an ornament to my pendant. I also added a couple of black feathers in to add the theme there once more.

Stamped and Riveted Metal and Leather Mixed Media Bracelet Fri, 26 Sep 2014 05:56:53 -0700

 I layered a bunch of pieces together to make today’s bracelet design, and it’s a really awesome piece (if I do say so myself).  There’s a few different metal and jewelry techniques in this piece so I’m going to call it an intermediate piece, but in all honesty, once you learn how to set rivets, how to stamp metal, how to punch holes, and how to assemble leather jewelry, you would actually find this to be a very simple project.

Rock a mixed media cuff just in time for back to school! Make a mixed media cuff using Marisa Pawelko’s new dies for Sizzix. You could also opt to do this free hand for a similar result! You’ll need the dies and die cutting machine along with the substrate, we used Tim Holtz grungeboard. Layer the cutting plate, die, substrate and second cutting plate. Crank it through the machine to cut the bracelet blank.

Well, one product and technique I have somehow resisted is making mixed-media jewelry with resin. I’m not sure what my resistance has been–goodness knows I have a ton of jewelry findings and fabrics to work with. And I adore those bezels filled with tiny paper collages and found objects.
