Blog Hopping

You probably all know by now how I admire Susan Lennart Kazmer's work and how I can't wait to attend her classes when she comes here in March. Well, Jen from her design team at Objects and Elements is organizing a blog hop showing how people are using Ice Resin in their work. If you want to see what others are doing just visit the links below.

My piece is a silver spoon that has orange sari silk in the base with a tiny globe inside an oxidized copper frame. The whole thing has been filled with the Ice Resin and I dropped in small pieces of silver solder around the edges before the resin dried. I added wire and beads and attached it to one of my hand wired and soldered chains. I may still add a couple of other things to the chain.

I love how you integrated the old spoon with the other elements. Beautiful!

Kaye Turner said...

What an interesting technique. And you worked magic with it, as usual :-)

Karen Burns said...

Having technical difficulties this a.m., so hope I'm not repetitive here. Love the darkened silver on the spoon charms!

jennifer lorton said...

I'm blog hopping. Your work is beautiful. I'm glad I discovered you.

Kim said...

What a stunning piece Ro! The clarity of the resin must be wonderful as I can see the fibres from the sari silk with ease in the pics. I love the little bulb and spoon and the highlighting that the solder has given to the design. You are such a clever girl I love your designs! Looks like I'm up for some serious blog hopping tonight to catch up with all of the doings with the resin. I have just recieved a parcel myself and am looking forward to having a play!

Lucy said...

Wowee - that orange sari silk looks just incredible. I love orange :-)

Dot said...

I LOVE what you have done with the resin. And the sari silk gives it a lovely glow(you are so clever to think of doing that).

I love your resin piece-- very creative. I once took a jewelry class-- on soldering and found it very hard so I now have a huge respect for jewelers

Tami B. said...

Such lovely work. So happy to have found your blog through the hop.

Robin Olsen said...

Gorgeous piece! That orange sari gives spark to the darkness. I took Susan's class ages ago, just enough to let me know that I am not a metal person. But I adore her work and bet you will love it.

ArtPropelled said...

A most unusual piece! At first I thought it was a tiny oil lamp glowing from within. Lovely work Ro. I had to go back and look at your felt piece again too.

Blue Sky Dreaming said...

Love this piece....the sari fabric gives off such light...bravo!

missficklemedia.com said...

This is so clever, using a spoon!
You color accents are really pretty too. Is that a light bulb in the center of the bezel?

Kelly M. said...

Such light and delicacy -- wonderful work! To use the sari silk with metal -- such a contrast of textures and purpose!

Jacky said...

I just love that sari silk...the colour that emanates through the ice resin is beautiful. Fabric and ice resin, looks like a wonderful combo and not one I've seen before.

Fantastic.
