Call for Artists!


It was such a great pleasure being a member of the 2012 Nunn Design Innovation Team. I was giddy with excitement every time I received a box of goodies in the mail. It was a big thrill for me to put my design hat on and challenge myself creatively when working with ND findings. Every month, I found myself wanting to make something fabulous because I was given such wonderful components to work with.  This experience for me was also an incredible opportunity to get to know and interact first hand with new Nunn Design products. I have made several purchases after trying out a new item because everything I worked with was truly outstanding.

I would highly encourage you to apply to be a member of the 2013 Nunn Design Team.  They are now accepting applications, so don't miss out on this amazing opportunity!

Nunn Design Elements of Inspiration


My new creation for Nunn Design officially has a name!  Rhine…it sort of has a Mad Max ring to it doesn’t it?  
I had great fun making this piece.  This was my first experiment working with resin clay and I must say that it won’t be my last!  Resin clay is such an interesting medium to work with and you can do so many things with it such as adding color and embellishments. 

This pendant was made by rolling out the resin clay, stamping it and adding various inclusions.  After the resin cured overnight, I sanded the edges then added color using Gilder’s paste.  So easy!  To add more excitement to the piece, I wire wrapped some copper to a tube finding and viola, I had one cool resin clay pendant!  The resin clay plus the chain and findings can be found  at

Nunn Design Innovation Team

It was such a complete honor to be selected to serve as a member on the 2012 Nunn Design Innovation Team.  As a design member, I will receive a fun goody box each month of exciting new Nunn Design products to play with.  In return, I will submit two finished pieces of jewelry which may be promoted on the Nunn Design blog/website and used in various publications.  Sounds exciting right?  You won’t believe what I received in the mail this past January!
It was so much fun to open my first box of treats from Nunn Design.  It felt like Christmas all over again.  At first glance, my creative wheels starting whirling and I couldn't wait to get started.  It was so exciting to work with these new products.  While I can’t show you the two necklaces I sent in for submission yet, I can show you what I made for myself.

I made this beauty using various chains from Nunn Design.  I call it Vintage Chic.  I took a 1950's brooch and gave it a new life as a stunning updated necklace.  I am a total chain junkie so I’m always on the hunt for new and interesting chain to work into my designs.  I was so pleasantly surprised by the chains offered at Nunn Design.  The quality is superb, the price is just right and they have a great selection.  Did I mention their rhinestone chain?  What girl doesn’t love a little bling in her jewelry? 
To experience Nunn Design products yourself, please take a look at their website and their blog for some design inspiration.
