CHA Winter 2014: Spellbinders

Good Evening!  Another installment of my recap of CHA Winter 2014.  Today its all about Spellbinders and their new release A Gilded Life.   A bit of old world meets romance meets modern chic.

A Gilded Life Studios is designed by Debbie Murray and Shea Fragoso.  As per the Spellbinders website it is a line of mixed media products that bring romance, European fair and affordable luxury to all your handmade creations.  You will be able to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, inspired home decor art, delicate embellishments to adorn fabric pieces, personalized gifts, mixed media art and paper creations.

It is absolutely stunning!  The line for the make and take was long but well worth the wait.  We learned how to quickly create our own jewelry pieces.  Not a single one was the same.  Each was as unique as the creator.  Here is the one I created.

The line includes pendants, bezels, coordinating bezel dies, long dies, long textured plates, relics, and surfaces (foil sheets).  We used a bezel, two bezel dies and the texture plates.  A foam sanding block was used to polish away the top layer to reveal the rose gold color underneath.  You can sand as much or as little as you want.  Each of the bezels comes with the clear cover.

I'm excited to experiment with the different bezels, dies and embossing plates.  The combinations are endless as you can die cut the metal foil, fabric, paper, and other media.

Something fun and different, don't you think?  Looking forward to seeing what everyone creates with A Gilded Life!

I will be back with more of my CHA Recap.  We still have Prima, Tim Holtz, Ranger, Vintaj and more to review.

Thanks for stopping by.  Would love to hear what you think so far of what you have seen at CHA!

Happy Creating!

Hugs,  Sharon
