This bundle of goodies was a set of commissions for the very generous and completely lovely Alf. He was after gifts for friends, his partner and you gotta get something for yourself whenever you’re buying presents. Rule number one for LIFE. This was so much fun, we had a conversation about each recipient and picked out some things they really like and I had to freedom to just go from there. The first thing you see pictured is a large brooch I came up with working on the theme of skulls and rainbows. I originally had a very different idea with an actual rainbow with skulls at the bottom or something. I know, It didn’t work, this is way better. It’s so big, bright and beautiful.
The next you see is a hotdog pendant and it’s a step up from any hotdog pendant I’ve made before. I knew this was for a hotdog connoisseur and based the look on the toppings he has in his own hotdog artwork. (Go buy stuff people!) I’m really happy with how the details came up on that one.
Next up for a huge Disney fan we have Cinderella’s pumpkin coach as a brooch. This looks so good I’m a little disappointed you cant tell how tricky it was. The photo also doesn’t capture well the light blue glitter sheen on the surface. Trust me, it’s pretty!
Last up we have an avocado pendant for a notorious avocado lover. To all the people out there who don’t like avocado, I don’t understand you. That stuff is MAGICAL. I’ve been making little avocados a long time now so I’m really finicky about getting the graduated colour of the flesh right. I had a few goes but on this one I sliced through my clay and said eureka.
The final photo is evidence of what a great time I had with the packaging and my washi tape collection.
