Ice Resin and Steampunk jewelry

Here are some photos of my newest work. I am still finding new and interesting things to do with ICE Resin, but filling a bezel with some dictionary paper and bits of vintage costume jewelry is so simple and so satisfying that I still do a lot of pieces like that.

I adjusted some settings on my camera in an attempt to get better photos.Obviously, it didn't help much.  I have plans to take some lessons from Donna Hopkins, a kindred spirit, and amazing photographer. Check out her blog to see her gorgeous photography.
Here is another resin piece. Thanks to Barbara Hawley for sharing this dear little deer with me.

And another foray into my steampunk phase. I have just started doming my gears, and using micro bolts to attach them together. I wish I had the time and space to experiment all day! Don't we all?

Leslie Brier, Brier Design Studio 

I'm back! The power supply went out on my old computer about 3 weeks ago, and it made more sense to get a new one than to fix the old one. It ended up taking quite a while for me to get  everything up and running again. During that time, I've made a lotta lotta art and  I'll have lots of catch-up blog posts coming soon. 

This month my work will be featured in The Jewelry Show at the PonShop Studio and Gallery along with five other jewelry artists. I have completed about two dozen pieces, and am really looking forward to seeing the whole show put together. The opening reception is this Friday night, November 4 from 6-10 pm. If you are local, I'd love to see you there. If you are far away, I'll have pictures soon. The show runs through November 27. What a great opportunity to buy handmade and get your holiday shopping done!
