i am acrylic WORKSHOP – Take 2

After my last visit to iamacrylic, I jumped at the chance to do another workshop with them. This time I wanted to step up a gear and give myself a bigger challenge.

I’ve always wanted a necklace that showed two things that I like and go well together… Tea & Biscuits! Surprisingly no one had created this yet (well, all the searches I had done I couldn’t find anything). Not that I wanted to copy, just inspiration. Anyway, I did some sketching and came up with the below.

Because I had done the workshop before, I kept in mind the tips I was given. Layering was the main thing I remembered, making sure not to make it top heavy and to be sure that everything would fit.

Come the actual workshop, I made a couple of modifications to my design.

  • The tea sitting behind the cup shape as this made more sense
  • The handle of the cup was now part of the overall cup shape
  • The teabag tag would dangle on a bit of chain from the tea

I managed to just about get this done within about 4 hours! I’m actually really proud of this piece and was overwhelmed by the lovely comments I received with iamacrylic shared it on their Instagram.

I’m that happy with it that I’m looking into purchasing all of the tools and acrylic to make some more to sell.

Would you be interested in purchasing one if I were to do that? What would you be willing to pay for it? Please let me know in the comments 🙂
