ElloweenCreations Shop Introduction
My name is Elodie and I'm the creator and administrator behind ElloweenCreations (öωö). On a side note, I'm a fine arts lover (and any crafting activity in general) lady from Marseilles. I started crafting accessories using epoxy resin, uv resin, polymer clay in 2017 as a hobby which fast became a real passion and my dream job always beens to mix what I love (known as creation jewelries and crazy cute items! :P) and work so I created in 2019 my one-woman band. I learn everyday new techniques (I'm self-taught) and I can proudly assure that all my creations are unique and crafted with passion and love so I hope you will find among them your gift idea (for yourselves or to make a gift), your fashion jewelries or even your interior decoration who knows!
My shop's name comes from the alias I used for years 'Elloween' (it's a mix between Halloween, my favorite theme; with cats and my shorten first name 'Elo' :3) and the word Creations.
Describe here the main stages of the company's ElloweenCreations development from its beginning to this day.
- 2017-2018: I discover the different resin types and the vast creation possibilities with them: jewelries, accessories, jewelry boxes and so on,...
- 2019: April the 1st (this is not April Fool's joke! XD), my sole trader has officially started!
The core activity of the company
I especially work with resin for my creations:
- Epoxy resin is perfect to create fully-fledged shapes (using silicone molds): characters, shapes, colors, etc...The possibilities are vast... After a strict A-B parts mixing, it needs 24hrs to cure and to be embellished but once done it gives a sturdy plastic item.
- Uv resin as the name suggests is a resin curing under uv light (lamp's or sunlights) is great to work on smaller items and thanks to its reduced curing time (in a few minutes for slim layers!).I use metal frames with different shapes often known as open bezels.
But I do use polymer clay sometimes:
- Polymer clay looks like modeling clay texture speaking (although a little harder, depending of the brand), which once baked gets sturdy as plastic. I like using it to create small decorative sculptures instead of jewelries or accessories but I won't be against the idea if I get a request :3
Assembly details (= to assemble the pieces to transform them in jewelries/accessories/etc) and the findings I use:
- I assemble all my creations, being the findings to fix or connect together, thread beads into findings to create charms, necklace or bracelet chains,...In short, I don't forge the metal part myself but I put them together XD
- I do my best within the realms of possibility to only use stainless steel findings and those who aren't will be written (under applicable standards, they're all lead/nickel free) Stainless steel is known to be sturdier, hypoallergenic and to never rust, so made to last long!
