Another Ring Holder–Thanks Graphics Fairy!
But first, an update. Yesterday’s show was slow, and to put it honestly a bit disappointing. I can usually look at the bright side of these situations. You know, find a redeeming quality about the event, and call it a learning experience. Which, by the way, it still was.
I just don’t like the feeling that perhaps I wasted my day, or that my time was better spent doing laundry.
The good side? I met a couple of coordinators from upcoming shows, that were very complimentary about my work. That feedback is always helpful and worthwhile.
Also, I had my very cute assistant Dolly there to help me remember to giggle and have a good time. My crafty friend from Crazy Baby’s Closet was also my neighbor at the show, and that is always fun.
This one is a bit different from the one I made here.
I printed this great pocket watch image from The Graphics Fairy. After trimming around it, I Mod Podged it to the tasting spoon. I gave it a few coats to make sure that the resin wouldn’t discolor the paper.
I had recently shortened a chain on a customer’s order, and kept the spare links. I knew that I wanted to make this ring holder somewhat three dimensional and “mixed media,” so they came in handy.
I poured the resin over the image after the Mod Podge completely dried, and carefully placed the links into it. When I was happy with where it was, I made sure there were no bubbles and let it cure.
I have to say…this is my new favorite! Thanks for reading…
