Jewelry I created for A Baptist Covention Of 500 Ladies.
I recieved a request from one of the jewelry stores
that carry my work to create a selection of pins that
were in my line known as the peek-A-Boo Hat collection,
a variety of ladies with hats.
The theme was Black American motiffs
for a Baptist convention with 500 ladies in attendance.
I sculpted and then painted approximately 75 pieces
and then video taped them since my digital camera
was on the fritz.
I do apologize ahead of time for the quality of the video,
it does have some moments of beauty,
but is a wee bit grainy and blurry at times.
Nevertheless I was able to
capture the essence of the work.
I used to do a lot of Black American Jewelry
and it sold very well at several jewelry stores,
In fact many women would come in on the day
that it was recieved and buy pins.
I enjoyed creating each hat and outfit
using sculpey flex as a medium, with acrylic paint
and heatproof, waterproof finishes.
Sculpey flex is a polymer that once sculpted
can be baked in the oven for about 20 minutes
and then your piece becomes a sturdy, hard rubber,
This makes the art durable and each piece
should last many many years.
Each piece was named and numbered and
delivered last week for the convention.
I hope you enjoy the brief, somewhat fuzzy views
of some of my creations hot out of the oven
and onto some lovely ladies somewhere.
