 All 14 pins together for blog

During a visit to my favorite bead shop the other day I found the cutest cat glass beads ever! They inspired me to start creating these brooches and necklaces right away. There are only 2 that don't have cats in them because they were made before I got the beads.

Making this kind of jewelry is such an enjoyable experience. While stitching these pieces I make up all kinds of stories in my mind based on each scene. I often catch myself smiling while stitching :) It sounds silly but life can't be so serious all the time :o

Five Wool Felt Embroidered Cameo Pins and One Pendant.

These are the most detailed and colorful brooches (and one pendant) that I ever made. They're like "small paintings" but instead of paint they're made out of wool felt, glass (tiny beads) and thread. These are really pretty in person.

I wanted to create something unique with my hands during the time when Diego is attending his social skills therapy. For the last few weeks I just parked my car in a beautiful shady area located in Beverly Hills, I turned on the radio to classical music and I started painting (embroidering :). It was such a relaxing experience. That's why they came out beautiful, because I put lots of positive energy into every stitch.

The architecture of these pieces is also more advanced than the ones that I have made previously. They're lightweight but have a nice thick body at the same time. I just love looking at them. Sometimes all you need to get into a good mood is looking at something colorful. In fact, there is something called Chromotherapy, which is some kind os color therapy. I hope that looking at these little creations makes you happy :)

New Print: Little Red Riding Hood.

Little Red Riding Hood small

Today I want to share a new print design with you. It is a new version of Little Red Riding Hood. There are so many ways to interpret this children's classic story. I have my own way to look at it. Little Red Riding Hood is in my opinion about fears and about overcoming them, it's about growing up, it's about the battle between good and evil... All of those elements are universal and timeless. That's the reason why the story is still alive, passing from generation to generation.

This particular version is about a girl that was forced to grow up too fast, due to the extreme events that she had to experience as a little girl. She had to become half wolf and half woman in order to survive. But her gentle and innocent soul is still within, intact and guiding her through all the dark forests in her life.


Some Special New Prints on my Etsy Store.

 

LIMITED EDITION OF 25 EACH.

(Already available on Etsy)

$28 per print

Lost in the Forest (8.5 x 11 print) color copy

Ever since I started offering papercut prints on Etsy I have wanted to create some colorful designs with my silhouettes. The experiments started a few years ago but it's only now that I have finally gotten what I had in mind. Using color with these kinds of designs is a little tricky. But after much trial and error I discovered that the magic formula was to combine very bright colors with neutral ones. I couldn't be more pleased with the final result. These prints look absolutely amazing on paper! The colors have the same velvety look of the back and white prints. I will always love my black and white designs but these ones are pure color therapy to the eyes, they make me really happy. Yay! :)

These prints will cost $28 each. The reason why I'm offering them in a limited edition is because the amount of ink that it requires to get this dense, high quality print is huge. The ink I use is pretty fancy. The printer uses 8 different color cartridges and the price of a single one is about $11. I will need to replace them very often for the kind of setting that I am using for these 4 designs. But I didn't want that to keep me from offering these colorful designs on Etsy. Once these designs sell out, they won't be printed again.

(I will be listing these 4 prints on Etsy tomorrow Friday)

These prints are already available here.

I absolutely love them in person!

They look like something found in an antique treasure chest :) 

The outer side of each frame measures: 8.25" x 6.25" (21x16 cm)

The material of the frame is wood and the glass is real glass, not acrylic.

Both papers; the black one that I used for the figures and the ivory one on the background, are acid-free.

I will ship these pieces wrapped in my beautiful bird gift paper. They will be ready to give away as a present to someone special or to yourself. Each piece is ready to hang.

Have a wonderful day!

Making these little ones took me forever but I really enjoyed every single step during the process!

The process:

1. I drew many different ideas in my sketch book, here you see some of them.

All designs
 

2. I picked 8 designs and I sculpted them in super sculpey using my mini tools.

B11
 

3. I made individual silicone molds from them.

B22
 

4. I carefully cast the molds in some beautiful snow-white hard plastic resin that I fell in love with a long time ago.

B33
 

5. I fully sanded and primed the surface of each piece.

6. I painted them with acrylic paint and then I applied many layers of satin varnish for a perfect finish.

7. I glued the safety pins and also drew the little designs that you see on the back with permanent ink.

8. Finally, I put them in a dehydrator for a whole month to make sure they were 100% ready to go!

And now they're ready to be treasured and worn by 8 special pin lovers.

Yay!!

They can be found right now on my Etsy store.

Have a wonderful day!

Elsita :)
