Teardrop Necklace

I made this gold-dipped teardrop pendant our of polymer clay and painted it with metallic gold acrylic.
 It is available in my etsy shop, and there is a copper one too!

Leather+Felt Bag

I've been seeing the use of industrial felt for accessories trend popping up in shops 
and on blogs, and fell a little bit in love with the pairing of grey felt with brown leather. 
I've been coveting one of these bags for a while, but since every one 
I came across was out of my price range, I decided to make one for myself.
Never having made a purse before, and not having much experience working 
with leather, it was a bit of an adventure. From learning how to install rivets 
to figuring out how to create the lining - which is made out of a beautiful 
cotton canvas - the entire bag was sewn by hand, without a pattern.
And I must say I am very pleased with how it turned out!

Metallic Antler Pendants

helping my littlest sister with a figure of Hamlet for a diorama she is making for school 
using some scraps of felt from another project...
...and new copper and gold antler pendants!
