    • Do you accept orders placed outside of the US?

    • Care instructions for jewelry and accessories

       ☆ It is ok for the jewelry pendant / charm to get wet. If you want to clean the pendant / charm please use room temperature water or cold water. With our resin pieces it tends to get soft under hot water, so cooler temperatures is best.

      ☆ make sure when cleaning your jewelry do not get the metal parts wet. For example do not get the metal ring base wet. After time the metal will rust. So we suggest not getting any metal items wet.

      ☆ How to store your jewelry. It is best to put away in a jewelry box or in a non open air flowing room. If item is left hanging near the window it will rust by time. So we suggest taking good care of your jewelry by storing it away in a bag or jewelry box.

      These care instructions are for all our necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets and accessories with metal parts.

    • button badge pins

       All button badge pins are made by me in my studio. Art is professionally printed at my local print shop. Then the button badge pin is then made with my professional industrial button badge machine.

       

    • Resin jewelry and accessories

       All resin jewelry and accessories is handmade by me.

      I pour and mix the resin and hardener to create the piece of jewelry.

      Most of the molds to create my jewelry and accessories are store bought or ordered from the internet.

      Some of my molds and handmade by me and I create a custom rubber molds on some pieces.

      I make my own rubber molds using Mold Builder Liquid Rubber by Castin'Craft.

       

    • What clay do you use?

       I use "fimo" clay. Its a type of polymer clay and I like this brand best.

       

    • How do you make fake frosting? (Relating to decoden)

       I use 100% silicone from a caulking tube. I use GE GE412A Waterproof Silicone Caulk, 9.8 oz Tube and always make sure its 100% silicone. When its 100% when its dry its squishy.

      I then get a caulking tube gun to squeeze the silicone out of the tube. I then get a bakers piping bag. I also have a frosting tip to create the decorative look of frosting. When all these things are all done the white silicone looks like frosting.

      I also color it using regular paint. Then I also use glitter once its all done to decorate it. I love doing decoden and had a lot of help looking at tutorials on youtube to help me and learn new ways to decorate.

      Look up "how to decoden" or "decoden tutuorial" on youtube.

       

    • How do you color your resin?

       I use little drops of paint. Or I use resin color dye.

      I also make the resin clear with glitter then once the clear resin and hardener are mixed and poured in my mold I add lots of color glitter to create a background color for the resin.

      I have also heard you can mix in color powders like makeup or other color pigments to color your resin.

      I have also heard you can use pastel colored chalks and use little amounts to color your resin.

      I also know you can also use food coloring too. :)

       

    • What glue do you use?

       I use E6000 glue :)

      On the package it says E6000 craft adhesive. I use the one that is clear when it drys.

       

    • Do you do custom orders?

       At this moment in time we do not.

       

    • How durable / strong is your jewelry?

       We have 3 types of jewelry.

      # 1 resin jewelry
      #2 fimo clay jewelry
      #3 printed acrylic charm jewelry

      #1 Our resin jewelry is very durable. Very hard as plastic. If you accidentally drop the resin jewelry on the floor it will not break. We use resin jewelry all the time because its very pretty but also a strong product.

      #2 Fimo clay jewelry is a fragile product and should be handled with care. The clay is strong but can break if pressure is on the clay to rake it. We take very good care of the item to make sure the item is well packaged for its journey ahead.

      #3 Printed acrylic charm jewelry is the finest products of the 3 we have. Manufactured product. The art is printed on the acrylic then it is cut with a laser. Its very strong and durable.
