ready for the new year!

2009 is coming to an end and most of my frens think it's a good thing as this year has not been the best of years. we are all looking forward to 2010, may the new year bring to all of us renewed energy and spirit, lots of new opportunities and of course plenty of good health and happiness :) and to all my arty bloggie frens :)) ... may your 2010 be filled with buckets upon buckets of creative juices and manifestations of stunning new works of art :))

i for one have already prepared a couple of new collection for my etsy adornment shop. so far the response to my adornment shop have just been luke warm, not as "energetic" as my houseware shop :) but no matter ... i'm just glad to be creating and to have a place to showcase my work :) here's a peek of my latest dabbles in clay.

Random Beauty
- these are my latest experiments in the mokume gane technique, altho the way i've executed these pendants may not neccessarily be the most proper way to do it. but i really love the random beauty that came out on these.

lava & flo



Black Bohemian
- these are a continuity from my previous prototypes. if you have been following my previous exploits you would know that i've been contemplating resin finish. well, i did manage to find some resin and they turned out just beautiful! altho i did face the problem of over-spilling which i was ever ready for, since my pendants had no edges to them. i couldn't really expect the resin to reach the edge and then do a perfect balancing act now could i! but i seriously adore these! they are just statement pieces!

  11. Wow, Luthien! Congrats! These are stunning, and I love them! Could you not make a removeable edge on your pieces to hold the resin in place till it sets? Funny thing, I recieved some resin for Christmas, and was wondering what I can do with it. (Different kind of resin though) Happy New Year to you, and yours! :)
