Cool Stuff I Made: Patriotic Edition

By Debbie Schlussel

In my almost non-existent “free time,” I like to make stuff, especially cool, unique jewelry. It helps me de-stress. I’ve posted pics of some other stuff I’ve made. And since Independence Day is this week, I thought you’d enjoy this cool resin cuff bracelet I made, pictured below. Since the finish is like lucite, the glare got in the way of the photos (I tried with and without flash and in different lighting), but you get the idea.

To make this, I used a silicone cuff mold made for very small wrists (my wrists are tiny), poured in resin (I used EnviroTex Jewelry Resin), and inserted this cool, patriotic graphic.

Check out the rest of the photos and more details about the historic, patriotic graphic, below . . .

















The graphic is from my collection of Jewish American military memorabilia. It appeared on a stamp put during World War II out by a now-defunct American Jewish group. It says, “Protect Your America. Fight Communism, Fascism-Nazism.” I color-copied and enlarged the image on the stamp and put it into the resin mold, allowing it to cure. Then, I sanded down the exposed edge and sprayed it with resin spray to finish it. I’ll try to post some of my other creations in the future. I’m inspired by American patriotism and cool events in contemporary American history (see my Neil Armstrong moon landing bracelets).

Better evening than I had. I was posting rebuttals to anti-Semitic garbage in youtube (Jimmy Carter’s crappy book about Israel being an apartheid state and Ex-congressman and felon Trafficant’s crap about the Jews controlling the world).

Excellent work, Debbie.

That’s really cool and especially using an historic, patriotic graphic. Very nice. I’d like to see pics of the process, different stages of it being made.

Also would buy something like that for gifts.

Interesting and very cool hobby, Debbie. I cannot tear myself away from the fact that it is also cool to pick up tidbits of the personal lives of the celebrities that we are fans of in this world. You may not think of yourself as a celebrity, but in my world you are, and this is one cool thing to know, one of those “tidbits.” These things I believe, add flavor to our fanship.

Debbie,

Nice work. T-Shirts with that Logo on it would be great.

Are these for sale??? Very nice.

Those look very cool Debbie. You should mass produce them and have them air dropped over some of my future vacation spot like Tehran, Riyadh, Beirut, and the Gaza Strip. I think that they would go over really well…lol.

KB: You just gave me a great idea: maybe I will make a cuff bracelet with the Bin Laden reward matches cover on it. DS
