Lots of new stamp and silk screen design available soon

I have spent the last week coming up with new designs for myΒ  silk screens and stamps. With Spring being here there are lots of flowers and leaves. Plus I have some very interesting organic designs that I am hoping will be very popular. They are perfect for doing Mokume Gane and mica shift. Here are justΒ  a few of the designs you will find very soon in my Etsy shop.

Fiona Abel-Smith: Friday Featured Artist (on Saturday)

Sorry I am a day late with this post. The orders for the Helen Breil Silk Screens overwhelmed me just a bit. πŸ™‚ I am going to be very bust this weekend.

This weeks artist makes the most amazing boxes I have ever seen ! Her name is Fiona Abel-Smith and I am in awe. They are entirely polymer clay ! !

Look at the details involved. Stunning ! Absolutely stunning !

Even the inside is finished with mokume gane. WOW!

Here is a picture of just the lid to one of her boxes. I can not even imagine how many hours of work this took to complete just the lid.

Oh, and Fiona makes dragons and jewelry too. πŸ™‚

You can see more of Fiona’s work in her Flickr Gallery.

And a cool tip :) Inside of pop can bottom makes a great curved surface to bake on. Just be careful of the sharp edges.

I want Spring !

Just spotted these beauties made by Ponsawan Sila.

They are just what I needed to see today. Still waiting for true Spring to show it’s face here in NE Washington State. If I can’t have the real thing I’ll search out the next best thing πŸ™‚

Cheryl Harris entered this stunning piece for the Reader Gallery of Beadwork Magazine
You can see more of Carolyn’s work here.

I found Madllen on Flickr. Quite the flower artist πŸ™‚ These lilies are amazing.

Olga Petrova is an artist I found on Polymer Clay Daily. Take a look at these small flower arrangements.

Tina Thompson made these gorgeous Peony beads.

Christine Bondar from the Ukraine made this stunning rose necklace.

I could go on like this for pages πŸ™‚ So I will give you one more taste of Spring.
These adorable flower buds were made by Randee M Ketzel.

Kim Detmers’ Tutorial Or As I Call It…. A Pic-Torial :)

I saw this beautiful necklace in Kim’s Etsy Shop and just fell in love.

Then I stumbles on her pic-torial on how she made the necklace !!!

Follow this link to her Photobucket Album to see the tutorial in pictures.

I’m In Love :)

With a bead LOL

While catching up on my favorite blogs I stopped by Backyard Beads. Oh my Lord – Doreen’s at it again ! Talk about mad skills creating beads using canework. This particular bead I am in love with is just one of 2 new looks Doreen is working on. Green being my favorite colors (shades of olive in particular) I was drawn to the bead on the right, but not to say the blues isn’t totally scrumptious, too. πŸ™‚ She calls them Blossoms.

I am hoping she takes my blog comment to heart and uses the green pattern on a 3″ dount. Seriously, Doreen, I would adopt it and give it a really good home πŸ˜‰

If by some really bizarre chance you are not familiar with Doreen’s work, skip on over to Backyard Beads, her blog, and take a look see πŸ™‚ http://doreenwilley.blogspot.com/

Steampunk Fantasies

I know I have shared Marina Lombardi’s work in the past. Her style is usually so classically feminine and flowery, but when I saw her new Steampunk designs I was floored. They are so wonderful !!!

I just love the flow of this floral piece.

And who doesn’t love owls πŸ™‚ The monocle effect is just too fabulous !

And my favorite – the heart locket

New Clear Stamp Designs Are Finished

I spent a great deal of the day finishing the new clear stamp designs and testing them to make sure they worked. I create the stamps with Mokume Gane in mind, but they are just like the clear stamps you buy retail and can be inked up the same way.

Here is a sampling of the new designs:

I made a web page so anyone can see all the designs, new and old, in one place. http://www.tonjastreasures.com/stamps/clearstamps.htm

Haven’t gotten them listed anywhere for sale yet, but if you wish to make a purchase email me at tonja@tonjastreasures.com and I can send a PayPal invoice.
