Fingerprint Jewellery

I was recently asked to make some fingerprint cufflinks for a customer and found out they are actually quite popular!
Below is the original cufflinks with the prints having been posted to me!!

The customer was over the moon with them and was quite pleased when I asked if it was ok to use her pictures for examples!

I then decided to have a go at a few variations and have created my own to wear myself!!

These were black paper with silver ink!
I have listed them on Artfire and also my website has the cufflinks so far!!
I will be listing some variations soon, such as family prints and charms!!

Glass Tile Coasters

Apart from the Sock monkeys and other stuff, I have been fusing some blank coaster tiles to make these!!
I am hoping to make a fair few sets...............again for the Wirral Show!!

These are foam backed and are fab as either coasters or just for decoration.
They have a fair few bubbles in the glass, but I feel for these that just adds to them!!
I am going to try a suggestion made by Gloria from Dichro-Findings , which involves a bubble squeeze program for the glass when it is fusing!!
I will hopefully get that sorted in a few days!!

Sock Monkey Mania

I have not been about much lately as I have been too busy with various events and making Eyefund Jewellery and these Sock Monkeys.
I did a couple of fairs and found that they were extremely popular and I am now trying to make as many as possible for the Wirral Show in july as i have a spot in the craft tent, but due to there being enough jewellery stands, I had to have something different!
Fingers crossed they will be a hit as some of the money from them will be going to Claire House Children's Hospice.
