I'm a proud and happy "mom" : Those are the first bronze and silver of my new Lovecraft collection, I finally got to meet the Uber-talented Melanie "Earthenwood" at the GenCon-Indy :wave: and I ended up winning the "Best Mixed Media" Award :) yay !

I just upload one pict (DeepOne with Garnets) and add the others "link style", I pity the modems... :D

Those look so cool. I particularly like Cthulu and the Shoggoth and Old Ones. Great work. Wish I could have gone to Gen-con. Made my first pilgrimage 2 years ago and will have to go back sometime.

I think I already kinda said my opinion ... but I bet it does not hurt to repeat it. I LOVE the Ctulhu one :)

So now that that is said ... when you selling it ? ;)

Even better in 3 dimensions than in the drawings, which were outstanding. I love the flow of your work. Were these one time molds? I'd like a better look at the Cathulu but the Deep One is my fave so far.

I am the proud owner of one of these new Sluggoths! I bought a silver one at Gen con! It is very beautifully carved! And it has inspired me to read some Lovecraft. I may string it with some small garnets, for an extra creepy effect.

Seriously, your jewelry was some of the coolest stuff at Gen Con, and I spent much of the night having wild dreams of monsters and knots after seeing your display! :evil: :eek: :wink2:

Wheeee, thank you all :D

I will begin and cast copies on wednesday (along with the ladybug necklace. Ahem, better late than.. well..) and have a pro make the vulcanized stuff molds. And I'll be free because all those swirls and tendrils are driving me boinker. (which actually, considering the subject, would seem logical enough)

I need to have a batch of them for WorldCon but I'll start to sell them around September 5th I suppose. I've already got commissioned pieces in gold :) yay !

Melanie> garnets would be somptuous ! I pondered about making a shoggoth with tiny garnets set in the "bubbles.. that could be fun.

Now I have to find a source of decent GREEN goldstone. It's easy to find blue or brown, even purple but green..so far no luck :/ If someone knows something about a good source, I'm more than willing to try it !

Barrie> If I may help, sure but do not beleive I'm a real old pro at casting. I'm applying the same recipe over and over. I learnt with a pro "caster" and he knows nearly everything, I'm just a copy-cat applying his recipe... If something was to go wrong, I'd run to him like the wind *lol*

My DH uses a self vulcanizing mold making medium, it's supposed to be able to withstand high heat and molten metal, he uses it to cast bricks and building blocks out of rockite to make model castles and such. If it's helpful and you're interested in more info on it let me know I'll have him give me the name of it and his source. -Jen
