Altered fan Marie-Antoinette

Hello Mixed Media lovers, Lately, I have been inspired by Frank Garcia (who is himself very inspired by the culture of my country) and I made an altered fan that I presented for Prima DT Call :    As you can see, it is very girly and pink. I decided to name it "Marie-Antoinette". For the background, I used Finnabair's sand texture paste, some crackle paste and some Finnabair's art stones. But I didn't like it, so after I painted it with Finnabair's Art Alchemy Metallique Vintage Rose acrylic paint, I decided I would... [Lire la suite]

Organza and satin flower brooches / Broches fleurs en organza et satin

Hello ! Today I am going to share with you another type of jewelry that I really enjoy to make and to wear... I think they are really vintage and elegant... fabric flowers, made out of organza and/or satin... This is going to be a short post, mainly pictures... They are really easy to make : just cut out circles of different sizes out of satin and organza, burn the edges with a tea light candle, sew them all together. Add a brooch pin onto a piece of flet at the back, done ! The longest step is to cut out the circles. I prepared... [Lire la suite]

Concrete jewelry / Bijoux en béton

Hello everyone !   Today I am going to tell you about something that I am really fond of... Concrete jewelry ! I discovered this technique about one year ago and now, I can't stop molding concrete ! I am in love with the industrial aspect of the concrete that I like to combine with gemstones (and I plan to combine it with Swarovski cristals, I think this can work very well too... I can't wait to find out!).     The one on the left is the very first model I created with a stone. This cabochon is made out of... [Lire la suite]

Bubble rings / Bagues "Bubulles"

Hi everyone, I am back after a long moment of silence... Lately I haven't been making Mixed Media. I made jewelry. I started to make bubble rings :  For the first one on the left, I used black microbeads ans white glitter (which turns out blue) into a circle of glass.   For the second one, I used only nail glitter. I don't know if this is because of that, or because of the Chrome effect of the glitter, but it got stuck onto the glass, inside the dome. It is really pretty, but we cannot really see the movement of the... [Lire la suite]

Layered Bracelet for a vintage look !

A few weeks ago, I created this bracelet for a contest, organized on Finnabair Open Studio Facebook page. I didn't win (so many competition with amazing pieces ! :)) but I wanted for a long time to make this kind of bracelet. I used only Vintaj supplies for this piece. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE Vintaj supplies: they fit perfectly the kind of jewelry I like to create: vintage, feminine and delicate. I used the following supplies: the oval layering bangle, the natural brass dragonfly pendant, the framed scrollwork pendant,... [Lire la suite]
