My newest jewelry line has officially launched!
I've been working on several new designs over the last few weeks!
These designs were created specifically to hang from the necklace as if wearing a harness, as opposed to hanging from a clunky jewelry finding.
Each design has been carefully hand-sculpted in polymer clay.
Every hair was painstakingly created by hand to give the most realistic appearance possible.
Each design is carefully cast in a durable white resin. This resin is much stronger than polymer clay, and more resistant to damage.
All designs are available for order in this unpainted white resin form. You can leave them as-is, or paint and decorate them however you'd like! Unpainted pieces can be supplied with a length of black waxed-cotton cord and instructions for tying adjustable knots so that you can hang them yourself.
After casting, each pendant is individually painted. This process can take hours depending on the complexity of the design.
Because each is created by hand from start to finish, no two are exactly the same!
All designs can be custom-ordered and painted to look however you'd like! For example, the wolf sculpt could be painted to look like your pet husky, or the big cat sculpt could be painted to look like a jaguar or golden tabby tiger.
Here are some examples of finished pieces! These are all cast in the same big cat mold, but individually painted to look like different species.
If you don't see your favourite big cat species here, it can still be painted as a custom order! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for a custom order.
Here's an example of how these necklaces hang when strung.
There is no metal finding, or hole carved in the animal. They hang naturally, giving them an additional degree of realism.
Each necklace is made from durable black waxed-cotton cord and tied with slip knots so that the length is completely adjustable.
If you'd prefer that they be hung via a screw eye in the back, that option is also available on request.
Help me expand this line!
I've been a bit less active online lately, and now you can see why! I've been working on an entirely new line of items, in a brand new medium... PEWTER! I've had quite a few requests for metal jewelry, as opposed to Polymer Clay or Resin, and I'm pleased to be able to offer lead-free pewter jewelry at this time. Each unique design is sculpted in clay and used to create a finely detailed mold for casting.
My favourite pewter piece so far, a Humpback Whale! They are one of my favourite animals, seeing them in the wild was one of the best experiences of my life. You can see the unfinished, straight-from-the-mold version below on the left, and the polished and finished version below to the right. I have also made full versions of a Sea Lion, Pilot Whale, and Orca.
I will be posting my first batch of Pewter pieces for sale in the next couple of days, so stay tuned!
