Work in progress...finally

Just wanted to share the second stage of my leaves with you. I'm a bit inpatient. Though I'm trying to teach my son properly. Ha.
 They have dried in Silica. Today it was time to seal them in acrylic. Hopefully by this weekend they will be ready to dip....

I think i may have dried them too long. We shall see. Its all trial and error at this point. I have another batch in the silica as we speak. I'm thinking maybe 2-3 days this time.

In regards to my other Jewelry making adventures. I'm excited to start my Co-op showcase on Sunday. Which means I will be pulling pretty much all my stuff off Etsy to physically sell. Which is okay being so I seem to do better with my traditional jewelry in person anyways. People like to see feel touch and try on. I'm hopeful this endeavor will do well. I will be leaving my photography up on Etsy and hope to be adding my Woodland collection soon. As long as all goes well with my acorns and leaves. Heres hoping...


  1. Good luck with the showcase!

    The leaves look lovely too ;)

  2. Wow! This turns into jewelry!?!?! I am truly amazed by your talent! And the photos you took of the leaves look really good!
    That's awesome to do a Toucan Tribe Shout out and link-up! You're awesome!!!
    Love your work,

  3. Thanks Crafty...

    @CK. I don't know about talent we shall see. Ha. This is the first time I have tried real leaves. I just had an idea and figured I would run with it. If it comes out half as good as whats in my head I'll be a happy girl. I'm sure Ill have to try several diffrent things.

    Thank you both for the positive comments!

  4. WOW!!! That is amazing!!! Good luck on the show!!

    Thanks for stopping by my site and posting. We as moms do what we have to do to provide for our kids. I do still work full time but my commute is 10 minutes tops now. YAY!

    I am your newest follower. Have a wonderful day!

  5. These will be jewelry?!! Cool! I think you were the one that invited me to write a guest post,right? I was gone on vacation and now am back!! Let me know....Leslie

  6. Hey girl! I don't have your email so hopefully you will see my message here. I was wondering if you would like to do a guest post? Maybe we could learn a little about the process you take to make your jewelry and even feature some of your jewelry and finished products? I love what you do here and I am anxiously waiting to see what you plan to do with those leaves.

  7. Oh, I just can't wait until you post these leaves to sell. I am a sucker for natural elements in my accessories! I'm adding your shop as a favorite right now. :)
    Also, I just joined the toucan tribe myself. There are some fabulously talented ladies on there!

  8. Lovely
