DIY Jewelry Trays

I have always loved craft projects; my mother inspired us to create from a very young age.  Recently I got the bug to do some crafts and decided to make some jewelry trays using Sculpey Clay.  Have a great weekend and hope you have fun creating!

My Supplies:
Sculpey Clay
Stamps
Gemstone Molds
Acrylic Paints
Brushes
Sculpey Glaze
Cookie Cutters
Nail files
Craft Glue

All materials were purchased at:

Step 1:
Form Sculpey clay into the base for your tray and decorative accent pieces.  Be mindful that once you bake Sculpey you can file/ sand, which allows you to smooth out any imperfections.

Step 2:
Bake Sculpey clay at 275° for 15 minutes per 1/4 inch.

Step 3:
File any imperfections off pieces until you are satisfied with finish.

Step 4:
Paint pieces desired color; this took me about 3-4 coats to get the color I wanted. 

Step 5:
Glue piece together with craft glue.

Step 6:
Finish pieces with Sculpey glaze to add shine to your design.

Delphi Antiques

I recently came across Delphi Antiques through Pinterest and I had to share.  Their selection of estate jewelry is absolutely amazing, I would love to be on the next plane to Dublin to see all of their treasures in person.  Below are some of my favorite rings from their current collection, as you will see I had a very hard time picking just a few.  I strongly encourage you to head over to their website to see all that they have to offer, you will not be disappointed.  
Powerscourt Centre, 59 South William Street, Dublin 2

Wrist Wednesday- DoDo by Pomellato


This week for Wrist Wednesday I wanted to share a line that I love, DoDo by Pomellato.  I purchased my first bracelet and charm this past summer and have loved layering it with my other pieces.  I look forward to adding to my collection; everything about this brand brings a smile to my face.  The possibilities of their pieces are endless, with multiple bracelet, necklace, earring, and ring styles, which allows the wearer to design their very own piece of jewelry.
