Encaustic Pendants


Over Christmas/New year I sold out of my encaustic art pendants so I have been doing more after finally obtaining the antique look, oval pendant trays I prefer.
Each pendant contains one of my small original encaustic art paintings…. a painting made using melted pigmented wax. I have protected the artwork with a domed clear glass cabochon which, in effect, acts as a magnifier for the image. The oval image is 1.8 by 2.5 cm. The whole pendant is 3 by 3.7 cm and attached to a matching, coloured silk cord or a silver snake chain. Encaustic allows great depth depiction and within the abstracted shapes the viewer discovers there own meaning. It is so special to wear one off original paintings as a jewellery item and I certainly get a lot of positive comments when I wear them. These are for sale at $25 each, which includes postage. Contact me or to make things easier, over winter I hope to get my Etsy shop organised. encaustic pendant cool blue

POLYMER CLAY CREATIONS at Penguin Market tomorrow


This week at Penguin Market I will be working with Polymer Clay. I have been making decorative mice for cheese platters (pocket pet mice for children) for many years. I have also enjoyed making small sculptures such as cats and garden flower brooches. At one stage I made mask brooches and recently I have been working on my Cocoon jewellery range. This unique product combines contrasting surfaces of polymer clay and kiln formed glass, usually  dichroic,but sometimes hand painted recycled and tin float glass. After oven firing the creations are extremly hard. Come and see the works in progress from 9a.m. to 3 p.m. You can even buy some polymer clay to try for yourself.
