How's it going?

I'm reappearing in the blog after a short summer break with chilly news: I've spent this last month in improve my creative arts and I've learned a lot crafting two veeery special custom pieces in .999 silver, a ring and an articulated pendant. I'm really proud of them! Shortly I'll post a pair of pictures so you can give me your opinion ^^

I also created a few new ooaks, some of them already available in my Etsy shop:

Spring break

How's it going?

Have you ever heard about "Spring Cleaning"? Well, *basically* that's what I've been doing during this last month...

I don't remember how it began (maybe when I was sitting in front of my laptop and I said to me thinking about it, I would remove this from here and put it on there, or when I looked through the window and I decided to make a new shelf to the balcony, I don't know) but the point is that almost without realizing I've been linking "small house changes"... and I finished reversing the entire house.

To sum up: I've dedicated little or nothing to crafting new ooaks.

So to liven up the blog while I catch the march of a thousand party demons again, I'm going to introduce briefly some of the pieces I've listed on Etsy:

"OwO" ring -AVAILABLE-

How's it going?

Many times, although I have like a million of sketched designs and another million riped for the picking, I sit in front of my working table to craft... and I forget about sketches and everything: one piece here, another there and let's give imagination a push!

And although I would like to say "I'm going to focus on make this piece-to-be" and make it, the fact of haven't a predetermined route gives me a boundless creative freedom that often results in really interesting and original creations...

"Baroque" choker -AVAILABLE-

Let's go!

How's it going?

Good news because today, finally, I return to my weekly blog posts! ^^

Yes, I know: this time my ususal winter lethargy has taken more than two months... But I haven't been on holidays! I've read, instructed myself, researched, learned new techniques and improved my knowledge :)

I also practiced a little with silver PMC (I've an important order and I'd like to get the highest details level) and I created a few new pieces to warm things up like my first belly piercing, "The Strange":

Piercing "The Strange" -SOLD-

Evolving

How's it going?

For some time now I can't deny the obvious: it doesn't matter how much costs me to find time, how much effort it takes, I want to keep creating, learning and improving myself with Ooak Craft.

For almost four years I've had the great fortune of counting on the continued support of some people around me that has encouraged me whenever I've needed (boyfriend, father, mother, sisters, friends... thanks!)

If it hadn't been for those encouragement (and some other motivational boost) today I probably woudn't be writing this post... So, I'm pleased to announce that, without leaving my costume jewelry facet, from today I'll create my own precious metal custom pieces :)

Sample of a pure silver (.999) custom pendant



What are precious metals?
In my case silver, bronze and copper, at least by the moment!

What material and method will I use to make them?
I'll use PMC or "precious metal clay" in order to make this custom pieces.
PMC is a moldable material containing fine noble metal particles. This amalgam can be modeled and sculpted as if it was clay, and it becomes pure metal when it's fired in a kiln. Imagine the potential of this invention!

What kind of pieces can be modeled?
Any small-medium piece can be modeled, as they're necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets, belt buckles, cufflinks, circlets, charms, little figures, small plaques...



You may order your custom pieces
writting me to contacto@ooakcraft.es or using this form.


Those artisans interested in knowing more about the Orton's Prometheus PRO-1 PRG kiln (how to program it, how does it work, its efectiveness, its price) or about PMC, just ask me and I'll try to answer your questions ;)
