So I opened up my old laptop and pulled out a whole bunch of pictures from my old jewelry collection! The website above is now inactive :( I sold these in a little boutique stall in Haji Lane. These were painted woodcuts, and they were pretty popular, but just were too time consuming to make. I would have to prime the wood, paint two coats, the pattern, then two coats of lacquer and repeat the whole process on the other side. It was the first time I sold my jewelry (as opposed to giving them away..)!
I started these necklaces by painting goldfish wood-cuts, like the ones below. I felt like I could get more creative and play around with the shapes a little more than the ponies. Ling was hard to part with. I started incorporating the wood textures into the patterns I was painting in the fish, and I really liked how it turned out in Tanya, Halle and Ayane.
I also had a few other random creatures.. (Feli the Bunny was named after my friend Felicia who was as gentle as a bunny.)
I even created an whole lot of really cheesy ads with my necklaces and made them into stickers to give away at the shop. Not the most cost-effective, but I really enjoyed the whole process.
Anyhow, I just thought I'd give a little glimpse into what I used to make.. The Farmhaus was my first jewelry-art baby and I really appreciate the support and friendships that kept me in business then (you know who you are- thank you again!) Hope you enjoyed the pictures! Stay tuned for other random things I've dug up ;)
