Jewelry I created for A Baptist Covention Of 500 Ladies.

Updated on May 4, 2010

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,

almost unbreakable.


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.

      Thee miniature sculpture are amazing to their last minute detail and each must have required a lot of attention, time and skill to create.

      We do need a hub where you explain the sculpting process with videos, if possible.
