Metal Stamped Geometric Brass Earrings Tutorial

0 comments


I told my partner I loved my new earrings.  He said he noticed because I haven't taken them off.  (^ᗨ^✿)  What can I say?  They're big, they're different, they're fun.  It was a simple design I've been wanting to do for a while, especially since it gave me more practice not only with metal stamping but with my jeweler's saw as well.

The words I stamped on these brass earrings are an excerpt from the poem "A Julia de Burgos" by Julia de Burgos: 

...en mí manda mi solo corazón,
mi solo pensamiento; quien manda en mí soy yo.

Here's a video tutorial of the earrings.  You can watch it or you can go to the written instructions below.

It's been a minute since I've written for the blog, although I've been a little more active on my YouTube channel. (Btw, have you subscribed, yet? Go ahead. I'll wait. (^ᗨ^✿) )

I wanted my first post back to be a tutorial and because I'm in a metal stamping way lately, I though I'd share this tutorial for a beaded metal stamped coordinates bracelet.

I looked up coordinates for The Heartbeat but I realized I didn't have a quotation marks stamp (reminder: get punctuation marks stamp set). What I could use to replace it didn't look good, so I changed from Lat/Long N/W coordinates to decimal coordinates. (Just in case you're not sure where to find coordinates, I used the site What's My GPS to help me out.)

You can check out the tutorial in this video or you can skip down to see the written instructions.

National Craft Month - Day 30

National Craft Month 2016 is over. (◕︵◕✿) I can't believe I made it. I knew I wasn't going to be able to craft as much as I wanted for this month because of projects I'm working on, but I really did want to share some sort of tutorial with you all for each day, and I did. Go me! February basically sucked when it came to meeting my goals for the month. Yeah, there were a couple of days this month I missed because I unplugged and didn't prepare for it, but I made up for those. March monthly goals? ✔ Done.(◕ᴗ◕✿)

The last National Craft Month video I'll be sharing with you is a tasty one...or so it seems. It's definitely a project to take on in the kitchen. Especially for those with a sweet tooth. The video is from Cupcakes Cookies and Cardio and it teaches you how to make a Coca-Cola shaped cake. The recipe for the cake itself includes Coke, but I think this can work with any flavored cake. The trick is getting a cake that isn't so soft you won't be able to transfer inside to your chocolate soda bottle. not sure what I mean? Check out the video:

National Craft Month - Day 30


Shoes. Love them. Basically all kinds. Mostly Chris Donovan, Irregular Choice kind. Chris Donovan might be described as artistic but Irregular Choice might be described as something else. It's been a thing with me. I remember in high school I was at the shoe store with my mom who was going to buy me a pair for school. I fell in love with some shoes and she just had a face: 'You like THOSE?' "Yeah. They're so ugly, they're cute." And those kind of weird, "ugly" shoes are the ones I like. (^ᗨ^✿) But I also like "normal" pretty ones sometimes. I like bling. I have a pair of clear "stripper" heels. I just love shoes. I'm just more drawn to those that aren't..."normal" looking. (Although, to be honest...different is what I love.)

Anyway, YouTube recommended a DIY Cinderella glass slipper video. I'm not really much Cinderella anything, but her heels were awesome so I decided to give it a look. So cute. I need to show my sister because I'm sure she will hunt down that tape and find everything else to make a pair for herself. I like the video because of the effect the tape gives the shoes. Other Cinderella shoes I've seen are just blinged out making them look like diamond shoes not glass, so NOT Cinderella shoes.

National Craft Month - Day 29

I mostly work with polymer clay but I have also worked with resin to make small items like jewelry. I know some cosplayers use resin to make props but that's at some serious skill level that I'm not even going to try. (◠ᴗ◕✿) I hadn't thought of making other types of large items with resin until today's video.

CraftKlatch is a channel I've shared videos from before and today's video deserves to be shared too. It's mixed media, it's resin, it's lighted, and it's mermaid. How could I NOT share? Mermaids? (^ᗨ^✿)
