I’m really untidy at the minute and this is why…

I’m working on a 2 week assignment to make 250 necklaces and 125 charms. This is really testing me since by the time my moulds were ready I only had 10 days! My fingers are bleeding from invisible wounds from all the sanding I’ve been doing. Yuck. So I’m taking a break right now.

Anyway this is the progress…




These moulds are constantly full. I’m backing the pieces with gelcoat because it sets faster which means I can get almost two batches a day, which is 52 pendants and 32 bracelet charms. I keep track of what has been casted successfully in a book.


I have stuff that has been demoulded and is airing, then stuff I’m currently sanding moves to the TV room…


Then I have stuff being varnished to cut out some of the sanding and polishing stages and speed everything up a bit…


And those that got sanded but have bubbles have their own section for filling, and then they’ll re-enter the sanding chain. Anything with uber bubbles is binned.


And lastly this is my tub of finished pieces to be put in a bath of Demon Shine then drilled and hung on necklaces.

I think I can do it!
