New Jewellery

25 Nov

Here are some new jewellery pieces I have been working on. I actually started on these months ago, but the whole thing has turned out to be considerably more tricky than I had anticipated. It’s taken me ages to get my head around it all and it felt like a true battle of wits to get them finished!
The main part of each piece is made from laser cut acrylic. The pieces with the victorian papers have the paper sandwiched between two bits of black and clear acrylic. These are then either bolted or glued together with ├╝ber glue to keep the paper secure. I used a similar technique for the butterflies with the gold and silver leaf too.

Here’s the pics:

I sold most of this at the Arts Trail last weekend where I got loads of nice compliments about it all – so all the brain ache was worth it in the end. The best sale was to our postman, who came into the house to deliver a parcel and left having bought a brooch for his wife – nice one Colin!
