Making moulds

I’ve been having fun recently making silicone moulds of various knick-knacks I have lying about and then using those to cast resin pieces.  Here are a few….

(Resin and glass beads)

I gave these as Christmas presents to friends.  Don’t worry, I’m not spoiling the surprise, they couldn’t wait until Christmas day and have already opened them!

Christmas Decorations

I mentioned a while ago that I was making porcelain Christmas decorations and here they are finished….

OK, these may not be traditionally Christmassy but it was important to me that they fit in with the rest of the things that I make.  I hope people like them because I've made quite a few!

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas.

I live in fingerless gloves this time of year - I just can't get my hands warm!!  So when I saw that Angela Barrow had a felt workshop on making them I signed up straight away.  Here is the result....

As you can see we also made matching scarves - I'm very pleased with the result.  Also, Angela sent us away with our own custom-made glove template so now I can make felt gloves to match every outfit!!!

Have a look at Angela's blog to see what everyone else made at the workshop - and you can also see the other workshops Angela has planned for next year - highly recommended!

P.S.  I know I haven't shown you much of my silver jewellery recently, but I'm currently working on Christmas presents for people who I know look at this blog.  I just wanted to keep them in suspense until Christmas day!!  Promise I'll show you what I've been up to in the New Year.
