If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to, this past month, well…. [points to post title] I will be selling my jewelry (for the very first time!) at the Mt. Shasta 4th of July street fair, July 2nd and 3rd, from 10 am to 7 pm. If you’re in the area, come find my booth on Mt. Shasta Boulevard! I’ll be somewhere between Castle Street and Alma Street. (Bonus points if you bring me a latte.)
In this post, let me show you the resin pendants I’ve made, using washi, postage stamps, and things snipped from magazines and calendars. At the heart of each piece is an image or paper/pattern, creatively cropped. I sometimes layer multiple images, or embed Swarovski crystal rhinestones, watch parts, beads and charms in the resin.
I fell in love with resin last fall; there’s always more to learn, but I think I’ve got a pretty good process going. One more batch to finish, and I’ll have almost 100 pieces to sell!
When I mentioned all this on Twitter, Fusion Beads asked to see my work (I buy my bezel pendants from them), so I tweeted some of the pictures shown here. Their response makes me giddy:
@manyfaceted Ur pieces are absolutely stunning! U have a great eye for framing. I <3 how you chose the perfect spot in ur beautiful papers!

I hope my work is as well-received when I get out there and sell! I’m pretty nervous, but excited too. Once the 4th is over, I’ll get started on Etsy, and see how it goes.
Next post, I’ll show you the beaded and wire jewelry I’ll have to offer. Stay tuned!

Danielle, I just wished you luck on FB, but after seeing these pieces, I realize you don’t need it! These are gorgeous and oh-so sellable! BW and I will stop by your booth…and we’ll see about that latte 😉
Thanks so much, Nikolas! 😀 I look forward to seeing you guys!
Super awesome, can I put in my Etsy preorder now?
Sure! 😉 Seriously though, if you see anything you like in the photos, I can make something similar (although if it’s a specific paper, I may need to order more, or in rare cases, I may not have any more… the blue geometric star pattern paper comes to mind. )

These are awesome!!! I need to look for my Origami paper for you! Good Luck!
Thanks Robyn! 😀 I love origami paper — the more ornate, the better.
