Spellbinders Faith!

Spellbinders has a beautiful new inspirational collection that released this month! There are gorgeous sentiments for foiling, as well as two die and foiling sets that can build crosses. Of course when I saw the foiling set, I immediately took it downstairs to my polymer clay table... and used it as a clay stamp instead! The two components for the cross image are perfect sizes for drop pendants. Here is the set I made, which is available in my Etsy store, if it wants to be yours...!
Here's a closer look at the earrings - I used copper components, and those beads are handmade out of paper. 
I spent the majority of the weekend at an "online retreat" playing with clay and making beads in my basement - this abstract copper wire oak leaf was a teaser project that I followed along with before the retreat, and now that I have all the tools to do these kinds of pieces, I'm excited to take my jewelry in a different direction, incorporating polymer clay, wire, stamps, paper and paint, and all the tools I already use and love. The larger dangle bead is an upcycled thrift find. 

Here's what the cross set actually looks like - I love that it can have so many different uses!

I hope you have a wonderful week! I'm still reeling a little after the end of Falliday Fest, high school play season and football season... this week I'll be working on catalog samples for Impression Obsession's January release as we switch to a monthly release schedule... making more jewelry pieces with the beads I made this weekend - here's a peek... can you tell I had fun?! ....working on some holiday jewelry ideas and starting a new portrait. That should be enough to keep me off the streets! 

Take care!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh, I adore this set. Since I've gotten older and have somehow lost my neck (!) I can no longer wear dangly earrings. This coming from an old hippie. But if I could..........these are terrific.
