Science and Art or Art and Science

As people who are familiar with me knows I LOVE Science....especially all the fun experiments you get to do in the name of science:)  I do a few Science shows in schools and a lot more experiments at home with our little one.

This weekend I am having a Jewelry show and decided to mix it up a little with Science...Maybe create a bit of Instant Snow for the guests while they are sipping wine or tea to get them into the winter holiday mood or let the kid in everyone's heart come out while playing with the amazing Chinese bowl that sprays water to refresh.... and a few others... 

Will post some pictures after the show and I am excited to mix up Science and Art.  Along with Jewelry, I am also making a few of these adorable gifts with live succulents in it which are easy to take care of and liven up any work place (and ofcourse home)..

@The SantaCruz Heritage Fair unveiling Childrens artwork jewelry line

So ofcourse I didn't stop at just entering the competition.  I have been working on this new line to customize jewelry with childrens' artwork.  I wish I was more ready than I am by this time of the year but atleast I still managed to unveil it at the SantaCruz Heritage Fair well before Christmas.

The idea is simple:  With just 3 steps, you can get your child's artwork turned into a family heirloom that you can enjoy daily and keep it for ever.

(a) Pick a drawing (or more if you want).  This is the hardest part
(b) Send us a copy of the drawing or a good scanned image.
(c) Select the product you want in the shape you want, in the size you want

And we will miniaturize the drawing, make it into a stamp, imprint it onto Fine Silver, antique it (or not depending on your preference) and send it to you.  And if that's not enough, I add a nice design on the back of the pendant (or keychain) so you can use it reversible. It is also possible for a little extra charge to put two drawings on each side or the name of the child and the year they drew the picture so even after a decade or two, you can always look at it and tell exactly when they drew it.

The products to choose:

(a) Pendant only  (b) Pendant with chain  (c) designer necklace  (d) bracelet (e) key ring (f) charm necklace or bracelet (sizes will be between 0.5in to 0.75 inches each).

Sizes:  (a)  approx. 1 inch  (b)  approx 2 inches

Shape:  (a) Circle (b) Oval (c) Square (d) Rectangle (e) Triangle (f) Flower

Pattern to choose if you want to for the backside (free of charge)

A couple of examples....
