Many New Items in My Shop

I've been busy today adding some new necklaces and earrings to  my Etsy shop

Among the new additions, I have a few examples of my new faux stained glass collection.  These pendants and earrings are made by filling up the cells of filigree with custom-colored resin.  The resulting pieces look amazing when the light shines through them - like real stained glass, with sparkling colors and delicate frames provided by the filigree.

The only problem is that they are really difficult to photograph...

Introducing: Student's Work Gallery

I added a new page to my web site for the people who use my tutorials to upload their pictures.  I am inviting all my students tosow off their creations made following my tutorials.  The pictures will get you discount points, and here is how it is going to work:

    - The first picture of your creation made following one of my tutorials will get 10 points.
    - The second picture related to the same tutorial will get 5 points.

    - The third, fourth, and fifth pictures will get 2 points each.

    - Any additional pictures of your creations based on the same tutorial are welcome, but they will not be given more points.

    - Multiple photos showing the same item count as one picture.

    - Multiple items shown in the same photo will be counted as multiple pictures. For example, a photo with three items made following the same tutorial will get 10+5+2=17 discount points. A photo with three items made following three different tutorials will get 10+10+10=30 discount points.

    - Every discount point will allow you to save 10 cents at your next tutorial purchase. 10 points=$1.00 off.

    - To redeem your discount points when you buy your next tutorial, simply pay in full and let me know that you would like to use your discount. You can either leave me a note while paying through PayPal or send me a separate e-mail. Your discount will be reimbursed to you through PayPal right away.

    - Important: to make this system easier to work for all of us, when you upload your pictures to my gallery, please specify the same e-mail address as the one you are using to log into your PayPal. Your e-mail address will not be shown on my web site (it will be kept private and used only to verify your discount points).

Finally on Facebook

Just finished making my business page on facebook.  Come and take a look.  There is a link on the right side of this blog or you can just follow this link:

I am still trying to figure out how it all works.  My son says it is a never-ending process since the site is constantly changing.  Sounds encouraging!

EnviroTex Lite Resin
Now at

The resin needed for the projects described in my tutorials is now available from site,

It is a two-part epoxy resin, the kind that needs to be mixed immediately before use. I explain how to mix and apply it in every tutorial for polymer clay and resin.

I offer a trial-size kit, 2 fl. oz. total, for those who want to try one (or a few) of my techniques, but does not want to buy too much of this material. This kit will allow you to make a few items following any of my tutorials that call for this resin:

Faux Cloisonné;
Faux Art Glass;
Faux Lampwork 1;
Faux Lampwork 3;
Easy Faux Enamel;
Steampunk Butterfly;
Steampunk Hearts;
Perfect Metal Leaf.
