Sorry I have been away so long, friends!
m(_ _)m ゴメンナサイ
Here is the good news though, I have my clay figures in a couple of real life stores now 🙂 🙂 People have been telling me to use Etsy, but it just feels like a big garage sale to me. I figure it is a lot more prestigious to say “yes my work is at (name of store)”, than “yeah I’m in the sea of other crafters on Etsy. Also, people who want to buy can see the charm first, so that is another plus. Edit 2015- I broke down and made an etsy shop to more easily connect with people who are interested in my art. While I still hold that there are some garage sale-y things on the site, and I will continue to vend locally, it is very convenient to use the site for branching out.
This is not to say that I will not do custom orders through the internet though. In other words, if you want something seen on my blog or a custom job done, you can Email Me
Anyways, it took me about two weeks to get everything done to put in the stores. The first week focused solely on Sailor Moon items. Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to take fancy pictures of everything so here is one image of all the pieces before they were delivered to their temporary home:
My favorite ones are the pentacles with gemstones in them and the big huge brooch with wings on it. The yellow little heart with wings was quite tricky to make. Everything else I have pretty much done enough times that I’ve got a system down. Hehe SOAD.
The second trip out to town I delivered these to their temporary home with the items above:
This is a Luna P ball. My friend requested one so I went ahead and made a few extras to put in the store. They are super fun to make for some odd reason. I think it’s the goofy eyes and antenna.
Thanks for coming back after such a long hiatus. Now that the assembly line to hurry and get things produced for stores is shut down, there will be more regular updates at DecoJenn.com 🙂
I also wanted to add that when you click on a small image, the pop up will be an even larger image. Thank you boyfriend for helping me crop and edit the pictures better 😛
One of my favorite things in the world is Sailor Moon. Having been a fan since childhood, it’s something I’ve been into for a long time. I’ve always wanted to make something Sailor Moon of my own, that wasn’t created from fragile paper. Here today we have my first attempts at making some miniature brooches and moonstick wand. Later on, I got a bit extra creative Ｏ(≧∇≦)Ｏ
This is Sailor Moon’s transformation brooch in Season 1. It is actually quite easy to make ^_^
This little moonstick wand came out really good 🙂 It was a bit difficult to craft the moon at first, but I’ve pretty much got it down now.
Sailor Moon’s transformation brooch in the SuperS season. This one isn’t as good as the others. Those wings are NOT easy to make X_X So I am still getting the hang of that
Sailor Moon’s transformation brooch in the R season.
I really like the design of this henshin (transformation brooch) because it has a star and nearly rainbow color jewels 🙂
But wait, there’s more!
I decided to try something I have never seen done before, and that is putting gemstones on the moonstick wands! These came out really really really good. I am super excited to try this method in the future with other wands and brooches. Oh, and there is an extra bonus to the ones below 🙂
Both wands have quartz crystal to replace the “clay stone” as seen in the moon of the first moonstick wand.
Left wand – Bottom is amethyst, star is hematite, and red dot is jasper.
Right wand – Bottom is hematite. The red dot is just glass ’cause I didn’t have any smaller red stones V_V
Here is the exciting part about these two wands:
They glow in the dark on the gold parts!!
Man it was a lot of fun to make those yesterday. ^_^
If anyone has any suggests or requests for Sailor Moon themed wands or brooches ect, let me know!!
I think next I shall try to make the Sailor Neptune mirror. Time permitting. Looks like this is going to be another busy week/weekend. (*´ο`*)=3 はふぅん
