I little while ago I managed to get my hands on a piece of this fabric and I just love it! I adore bright fabrics and the psychedelic elements to this fabric are fantastic and great for making jewellery from...I just wish this fabric was never ending, but I only have a small amount of it however I am going to have so much fun with it over the coming weeks.
After working with fabrics and resin jewellery, I tend to now look at fabric in a different way; rather than looking at fabric as a whole, I tend to look at small segments of it. My jewellery tends to be one or two inches in size so I tend to look at very small areas of patterns and combinations of colours and objects.
For the first pendant I took an area of the fabric that incorporated a flower and suddenly what was previously quite a multicoloured and psychedelic fabric becomes predominantly orange in this pendant.
Resin is a great material to use with fabrics as it tends to magnify the weave of the fabric slightly. You can also include other objects or colourants to the resin to compliment the fabric. With these pendants, I coloured the backs of the pendant orange to match the material and gave them a slight twinkle with glitter dust.
For the second pendant I took an area of the fabric that incorporated some swirls and flowers that I thought matched the teardrop shape of the pendant.
If any of my blog followers work with fabrics and regularly have waste material that can’t be used for anything else (all I am looking for are one or two inch pieces), please don’t dispose of them as they would be often sought after by a resin jewellery artist like myself!
