Newest Resin Jewelry Necklace Designs




Earlier in the week, I promised I'd share with you some of my latest necklace designs.  I made several resin pendants and fashioned most of them into beaded necklaces.  So, without further ado, here they are:

St. Therese of Lisieux

Our Lady of Fatima

Virgin Mary and Jesus

Our Lady of Sorrows

Some of the resin pendants before they were made into necklaces.

Real dried flower resin pendants.  Morning glory, viola and pansy flowers.

More dried flower pendants.  These include daisies, violas and more.

More resin pendants.


This particular necklace isn't made from resin, but it is a new design for me, so I thought I'd also share it.
The Immaculate Heart of Mary

I have put together some awesome tutorials I will be posting in the near future, so be sure to stop by regularly.  You can also see some of my newest projects on Instagram.

And as always, you can find my latest completed designs available on both EBay and Etsy for sale until they sell.

New Bronze Mixed Media Necklace Creations


I'm happy to tell you that after the whirlwind of the holiday season and everything which surrounds it, I am finally back to posting my new jewelry creations on EBay and Etsy.  The ones I am sharing here have the same basic format - bronze bezels, chain, crosses and crystals - but all feature different images based on some of the more popular saint requests I receive on a regular basis.  As always, no two designs are exactly alike.  The necklace featuring St. Therese of Lisieux - the Little Flower - was made with metal rose beads that I hand-tinted red to match the crystals.

New Jewelry Items for San Gennaro Festival

It seems like time has flown since I was accepted as a sponsor/vendor for next week's San Gennaro Festival in New York.  I have been working from sun up until the wee hours of the night making jewelry for this event.  It has been a lot of work but I'm not complaining.  Thankfully, I love to make jewelry!

Being the creature of habit that I am, even though I am making tons of jewelry for the festival, I don't have it in me to make several hundred pieces of the exact same item.  So - while I am making several hundred pieces of things like domino pendants featuring San Gennaro, for the most part, the necklaces, charm bracelets, etc. that I am making are all one-of-a-kind in design.  Along that note, I want to show you some variations of necklaces I have made for the festival.  The basic design element is the same between this particular style of necklace, however, I utilized different images, beads and chain to complete the finished product.  So, without further ado - here are some of the bronze cameo necklaces I will be selling at the Festival:

Virgin Mary - made with new and vintage moonstone-style beads.

St. Mary Magdalen - made with Czech glass crystals.

St. Kateri Tekakwitha - Made with Swarovksi crystals.

St. Therese of Lisieux - made with hand-colored metal rose beads and crystals.

Virgin Mary - made with green jadeite milk-glass style crystals.

Virgin Mary - made with bronze metallic and champagne colored crystals.



These are just a few of the necklace variations made for the event.  All have adjustable necklace chains.

If time permits before I leave for NYC in a few days, I will post a tutorial or two on coloring and enameling metal jewelry pieces.

Stay tuned!

Catholic Steampunk Necklaces - Romanticism with a Twist





I have been working on some new Catholic resin jewelry creations and wanted to make them truly unique from the normal genre of what I create.  I wanted something that displayed romanticism with a touch of steampunk.  In order to do this,  I incorporated elements as gears, heavy chain links, crystals and rhinestones to my latest creations.  Here they are:


Virgin Mary necklace - features bronze, antiqued silver and a touch of copper (detail view.)

All of these necklaces have been posted to Etsy and EBay.  Once the item sells on one site, it is removed from the other.  I do this for my customers who don't have access to both sites.

I originally intended to complete my Italy series here in blogland, but opted to go forward and share my latest designs, instead.  I have lots of craft-related items and projects I want to share, and now that I am a full-time college student, my time to blog is quite limited.  :(  Until next time - happy crafting!
