Decision Made!

If you have been reading my posts recently you might already know that I was recently trying to decide what to do with this thingamajig:

I decided! I will be working somewhat freehand, not follow a tutorial and create my own design.

I'm very inspired by this beautiful jewelry box by Magia Mia:

Isn't it marvellous? Click on the image to see the source material and more photos.

...but, I will be using a gorgeous vintage atlas page on the front of the drawers instead and I'm going to experiment with making knobs/pulls from polymer clay.  

This is the atlas page I picked: 

Also, picked the colours to paint with and sanded the chest to make sure paint goes on smoothly.

Now on with painting.  I will be posting this project as a DIY tutorial as soon as it's finished (unless it looks hideous-then I get to tell you what went wrong).

Seriously though, I think this is going to be awesome!

Nautical or Mythical: More Necklaces!

This new batch of jewelry was made with this question in mind: "What kind of jewelry do I want to wear to express myself and look amazing at the same time?".  The anchor and dragon scales are newer than the compass, but I decided to sell the compass as a necklace with a chain instead of just the pendant.  Looks like like I have an artistic style now and it makes me super happy to see that!  I absolutely love playing with clay!
