My Newest Project . . .

This, of course, is not a new idea, nor is it my idea, but it’s a great idea, and ¬†I’ve been meaning to play around with it for a long time.

These are pendants made of Scrabble tiles, photographs, and resin.

I make the aluminum bales myself ¬†because I like the look better than the ready made ones, and I can center the bale over the tile totally so it doesn’t want to hang weird.

I made a display for the gallery (which I will photograph for you), by standing the game board up behind the pendants, which I set on Scrabble letter trays. Chains are hung from S-hooks over the top of the board. They have been selling very well.

I have been having as much fun creating displays lately as I have been creating product.

Here are a few of my favorite pendants . . .

Obvously, I’m using my own art and photography for these.

One thing leads to another, and I get so many requests to reopen a gallery website (which I just cannot afford the time to do), that I decided to add a Gift Gallery to Cre8it.com.

And the first thing in it is . . . good guess . . . the Scrabble Tile Pendants. I have 29 of the design styles there so far, and there are more to come. They were already in the gallery and I didn’t get a chance to photo them yet. Yes, of course, some of the Hibiscus are in that bunch.

These are great $12 gifts for the holidays, so have a look see…

Jessica’s Scrabble Tile Pendants

I took all the photos with my iPad 3 because using the good camera would have meant all kinds of lighting tricks. The iPad camera is quite miraculous for this kind of photography.

Have you ever tried this Scrabble tile thing before?

Can I Do It?

I am gearing myself up for a blogging challenge – to blog every day in December. I know there is a big movement online that has everybody blogging every day in November, but I never quite get with it in time.

I am sure some of my posts will end up a little lame, but I have to get into the habit of this somehow. If I can do it in December, then I should be able to do it anytime!

I’ll be practicing until then . . .

    Love the pendants. I don’t wear jewlery anymore, but I can see myself make and wear these.

    Why put the stress on yourself of blogging every day. Is it that improtant… I think I average about 3 to 4 times a week. Sometimes several times in one day. When I have something to say, that’s when it gets blogged…

    Have a great day

    HI Yogi,
    My eventual goal is exactly that – 3-4 times/week or whatever comes up.

    But, I need to get my engines started, and i KNOW I won’t make it everyday, so this way, when I fall short, I will land where I want to be – lol.

    Love those pendants! Wearing a miniature work of art around your neck is just genius. And I like that you made your own bales. (The proofreader-that-never-sleeps says the next-to-last row has the wrong names. :-D)

    As for the blogging, one thing I learned from you is that you can do anything you set your mind to! I look forward to reading them.

    They are lovely, Jessica. It is so cool that you can use your own art on them. But how do you keep the resin from running off the edges?

    What a great idea. I love the pendants. As for daily blogging………….it would feel like a “sentence” to me. I know I would learn a lot of self discipline, though. I’ll have to think about blogging more often than I do.

    They’re beautiful Jessica! I love working with resin. The images you chose are great as usual! I hope you sell a TON of them!
