No, I haven’t forgotten you, I just didn’t get around to taking pics last week. But to make up for it you’ll get lots of them this week.
First: dice. I haven’t played a pen and paper RPG since long before the pandemic, but I swear I’ll do so again. I ordered a die mould to see if that would work. The results are mixed.
Well, the first one was flat out unusable, because silly me put the lid on the wrong way round. The mould works with a little lid you put on top where the #1 is with just a tiny hole to allow for resin to escape or be added. And I put it in the wrong way round, so the sides came up short and there’s no #1. The only way to save it was to put in a hook and call it a pendant. the other one is actually really pretty, but the top side still isn’t what it should be. I decided to only show you the pretty sides.
Next, the unhpotographable galaxy spheres. Sorry. Too many curves and shiny for the damn camera to get a focus on. I’ll see if I can get a better one with the real camera.
These ones turned out really nice. Dyed baby’s breath and small brass hoops make them really light and elegant
Chocolates anybody? I worked with a matte topcoat here, making them look like sea glass.
These go nicely with the necklace from two weeks ago.
Black and white. Baby’s breath in clear resin combined with black semi circles in brass.
“Garnets”. Same technique as the Mermaid Tears, this time in red. I made these shorter, but with at least as many droplets.
Galaxy tears with Bohemian glass beads. The blue is just amazing.
And last but not least, elegant circles:
The rings have baby’s breath, caviar beads and gold foil. The Bohemian glass beads in the centre are an amazing dark purple the camera refuses to catch.
IMPORTANT: If you have your eyes set on any of these pieces, I’ll put some up for sale for the upcoming fundraiser.
And finally here’s some pics from the “workbench”:
This is the small assortment of things I currently have upstairs. Yes, It’s the small assortments. BTW, one of the sensible additions to the pile was a small hand drill. While you can see the Dremel in the pic, the hand drill is useful for pre-drilling, especially on round surfaces, where the Dremel is prone to slip (it will drill your finger nicely). Just drill a mm with the hand drill, do the rest with the nice tool.
This is how the kitchen table looks at the end of the night. Thanks to Rüdügür the vacuum robot I need to clean it up every night because the chairs need to go on the table.

You just keep getting better and better. I especially love the spheres and the die.
Anne is right, you do keep getting better and better. I honestly don’t know which of them I like best, probably just as well I’ve let my piercings close.
Amazing work! I love the red “berries”, they look delicious. I’m a little bit sad I don’t have my ears pierced, I would love to order some of these. I have the perfect masks to match…
I think they’re all beautiful, but I’m partial to the red teardrops. I’m constantly impressed by your creativity and fearlessness in trying new ideas.

They look lovely! Blue from the sea, earthy tones and red berries.
I think the brown ones look more like melted/burnt sugar than chocolate. I can also see eyes and cartoonish “those are not my eyes that you’re looking at” in the shape.
