I didn’t mention one of the coolest things I got at Heroes Con this year in my con report because I was waiting for pictures to be available.
Donna Nolen-Weathington makes jewelry out of images and sells it under the name Orbitals Jewelry. She explained the reproduction process to me, but the key thing to note is that the result is lovely, lightweight pendants and earrings that have the touchable smoothness of river rocks. I got the “Expletive Earrings” shown here, which made me giggle — they look like some kind of elegant Japanese design, until someone gets up close and sees that they’re cartoon swearing!
She’s also done some beautiful work with foreign stamps; I was especially impressed with her selection of the perfect-colored beads to coordinate. Her work is recommended, especially for unique gifts.
