Getting Ready For the Holidays - Making Resin Glitter Heart Jewelry Galore!

I've been crafting, crafting, crafting... getting ready for the upcoming holidays from Thanksgiving through New Years Eve & have some really neat one of a kind resin glitter hearts to show you!
First, there is this whimsical Tom Turkey pin that makes me giggle every time I look at it. The pin back is embedded right into the resin so it won't come apart from the handcast heart. I love the fall colors in the background too. I don't make pins often, but if there is much of an interest, I'll create them more often. I don't wear them much, but do like to pin a few on this retro funky wool purse I have in the winter time.

Both of these Christmas Santa heart necklaces are a relatively new size I've been working in. They're quite dainty & petite ...looking so cute & measure under one inch across.
If you don't like big in-your-face glitter hearts, then you may find these smaller size pendants quite charming! This size looks really great on my little girl & I made her her very own Christmas tree glitter heart necklace to match her green velvet holiday dress. She gave me a big hug around my neck & said I was the best mommy ever! You can't beat that for appreciation of one's work!

This red and green Santa Claus glitter heart has already gone to a new home, but I have similar looking Santa pieces which I will be listing very soon, so stay tuned!

If you're looking for a great statement piece to wear to a New Year's Eve party, then you may be interested in this one of a kind elegant modern snowflake glitter heart in black & silver. It's simply stunning & a piece I'm really proud of.

In addition to all the holiday theme pieces, I've been hand casting new glitter designs in heart shapes like this tie dye look glitter heart where all the rainbow colors run together! Isn't that fun? It would be a great everyday jewelry piece. When the winter is cold & dark & drags on for months on end, who couldn't use a little color & sparkle to put them in a good mood?


Anyhow, that's a sampling of what isewcute is up to as far as resin crafting goes.
Other things on my crafts to do list are knitting socks, crocheting a beard for my Santa-crazed 7 year old, & making soap.
I'll talk more about those crafts in my next post!

Stay crafty!
