Excited…much!

11 Mar

Must admit to getting¬†a bit excited when checking emails & finding I have recently sold one of my items on Redbubble! ¬†Now I know I don’t get much from the sale of a postcard, but it’s the start that counts…hopefully…

And I realised you, my lovely readers, cannot get excited if I don’t show you what I do on Redbubble!

So, for you Redbubble virgins, and for those who may not have found me on there yet…

Duh duh duh dahhhh

I’m excited, hopefully you’re excited, my works are a mix of photographs and illustration, with a bias towards photos. ¬†I think my favourite one at the moment would have to be the Morris Grille – I think it will make an amazing looking bag!! ¬†Love Redbubble!!

Huge, Huge, Huge, Enormous thank-you to the person who did love my Blue Mustang photo enough to purchase it!!!!!!!!!!

Joyce and Penny

5 Dec

These two drawings are available in my redbubble store on a variety of items – iPad covers, phone cases, tees for adults and kids, and many more.

I have drawn inspiration from two very different women, one fictional, Penny, and one, sadly no longer with us, my grandmother Joyce.

Penny is influenced by my love for the wonderful comedy “Miranda” and the character of her mum, Penny.

And, ¬†as I’ve mentioned, Joyce is named in honour of my grandmother, a wonderful woman who gave so much to her family and her community. ¬†Her memory lives on.

Please go look at them, enjoy the movement in them, get lost in the patterns….

Caring for your resin jewellery

4 Jun

Supposing you have bought one of my lovely little babies, how do you care for it, I hear you ask!!

Well, for starters, you can wash it with luke-warm water &  mild soap, if needed, be careful not to leave it to soak, I use a gentle toothbrush to brush it with the soap, then a quick rinse.  Better yet just rub in your favourite moisturiser!

Once I have finished sanding and polishing an item, that’s what I do! ¬†I currently use a patchouli scented one, but have even used Vaseline Intensive Care and a Nivea one in the past.

Of course you also need to treat it with care, because whilst resin is quite a sturdy product, it could still break or chip under the right circumstances.  The pieces should not be expected to withstand a hard knock or decent drop, they should not be heated or left in the sun for extended periods of time.  Avoid wearing your pieces whilst swimming or cleaning and make sure you put on your jewellery last when getting ready for a night out Рall these chemicals could easily damage or discolour your fabulous item.

Your resin piece is unique and individual, I tend to mix my own colours so could never make exactly the same one should something happen to yours, I am happy to try, however it is unlikely to be a perfect match.
