Treasures that dangle made with love…
Treasures that dangle made with love, and ICE, and everything nice by the Shabby Calavera herself, Lexi Grenzer!
The beauties on the left have Art Mechanique paper and a rhinestone.
The middle pair have Ivory Relique (Have you had fun with Cold Enameling yet?)
Those on the right are painted and have Shattered Inclusions on top–just a few to give a glimmer.
Now all they need are ear wires.
A pretty adornment!
That button is just floating in ICE Resin®.
Burlap is a fabric you might not associate with jewelry, but as mixed media jewelry aficionado Lexi Grenzer show us, anything goes!
Burlap is woven most often from jute fiber.
While you might not wear this necklace against your skin, it would be super cute paired with a spring dress. And spring is a mere two weeks away!
In this video, Lexi Grenzer shows you how to use a metal fiber or a bling headpin to make earwires.
Grab your tools: a hammer, bench block, sharpie or mandrel, dremel tool, and round-nose pliers.
Lexi is the Shabby Calavera and you can find more of her creative projects on her blog.
Oh the vintage Valentine forever holds a special place in my heart. Decorating shoe boxes with paper doilies, paint and construction paper and making Valentine cards for all your class mates and loved ones. It’s just as sweet as can be. Hug someone you love today!
p.s. You can shop your local JoAnn store for Susan Lenart Kazmer™ for Spellbinders® Media Mixáge™ bezels a bit later this month!
More than ever, I am inspired by Mexican Folk Art. My home, my art and my jewelry are all a direct reflection of that.
I have always been attracted to the Sacred Heart or Flaming Heart in my constant hunt of flea markets, garage sales and art. The symbol holds much meaning, but the word that strikes me most of all is devotion. Devotion to all things you love most is truly sacred…and this piece is a reminder of that.
One of my favorite quotes by Barbara DeAngelis is, “Love’s greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred”, and I simply couldn’t agree more.
