MyfanwyNia's Studio Weblog

Hello and welcome to my creative world, thank you dearly for your interest in my artistic endeavors.

Here on my web log I record my studio progress, it acts as a web based journal spanning back to 2010, here I can easily glance back at projects and artworks and add current progress. I hope some of you also will find inspiration here.
I welcome dearly your comments and feedback as valuable assets, that help me consider different aspects of my art practice and my creative growth as an artist.
Love and Light

Kawaii Decora Pendant Tins

In the studio last night making these new pieces, they are little tins on a chain with a tiny spoon charm.
I enjoy making these very much, this craft time for me splits up my studio time nicely giving me a little space between painting and drawing.
These pieces of my art print jewllery are inspired by another fabulous trend influenced by our friends in Japan, Decora and Decoden or Dekoden is for all of us who are part-crow, those of us who are attracted to anything that has gems, sparkles and glitters. The term “deco” is intuitively short for decorated and “den” is short for “denwa” meaning “phone” in Japanese.
Japanese Decoden culture has been adored by those who love it and called tacky by those who don’t. The “deco” term covers all of the types of embellishments, from flat and glittery to the most impractical faux - dessert topography, and making or finding a good one isn’t a small feat. Decoden phone cases are categorically over-the-top but I’m sure that is the point, to be decadent and whimsical. I excited after making these pendant tins, because have just acquired a few blank i-phone 5 cases and intend to try my hand at decorating these soon.
On these pendant tins I have added a glass art print cabochon with a range of resin cast objects, dolls house ceramics, gems, pearls and some handmade polymer clay miniture food items.

These pieces will be available from next week at White Lady Art, in Templebar Dublin, they also come in a velvet pouch. <3 i="">
