So many posts about the new papier maché clay recipe and only undecorated bowls to show for it... until now.

Nine one-of-a-kind handmade bowls, in a variety of sizes, shapes, linings and finishes have been added to ChirpHop Studio's Etsy shop. (and more to come soon). A few are made from cast paper and the rest are made of papier maché clay.

All of the bowls are made with recycled household scrap paper and some are finished with repurposed gift wrap tissue paper or foil.

They can be used as a stand-alone decorative pieces, for holding dried botanical arrangements or other small household items or as storage for home, craft or office supplies.

Check out the slide show above for a quick peek at part of the collection.

Because they're finished with acrylic paint and/or varnishes, they're water-resistant. You can wipe them with a damp cloth, but it's probably not a good idea to submerge them. The finishes aren't considered food-safe, but could certainly be an option for wrapped food.

Hop on by and give them a look. If you like what you see, feel free to favorite them, pin them or use whatever your favorite is to share them.

Spring Has Come To ChirpHop Studio – New Earrings Came With It

Spring is finally here!!

And so are the first of a new group of earrings in the ChirpHop Studio Etsy store.

Take a look at the slideshow for a taste of what's new.

Some of them were inspired by a fairy garden exhibit at a local park, some of them were inspired by chance.

All of them were influenced by the light and color of Spring (my favorite season).

Stop by the store and get a breath of the new season.

Mother's Day and graduations are right around the corner. What better gift than handmade one-of-a-kind earrings or a pendant?

Coming soon... handmade decorative paper bowls. You've seen them undecorated in other posts. Now they've got their new coats on.

New line of earrings added to the ChirpHop Studio Etsy store!

We're excited to announce that we've expanded what we have to offer at the ChirpHop Studio Etsy store, by adding a line of earrings.

There's a variety of colors and styles, from long multiple dangles to short geometrics, soft spring colors to bright ones and everything in between.

Choose from shiny and matte finishes, translucent and opaque beads, recycled vintage jewelry beads and findings and handmade polymer clay beads.

Check out the slideshow above for a sneak peek. Then drop by and give us a look. If you like what you see, feel free to pin them, favorite them or spread the word.

You'll make that little bird very happy!  ChirpHop Studio favicon

New Year, New Pendants

To brighten the shiny, new days of 2015, there are ten resin pendants in the Etsy shop that are just as shiny and new. Take a look at the slideshow to get a sneak peek at a few of them.

There are still some with a winter feel, but the urge for spring is definitely represented in this group.

Visit us on Etsy to see the the others. We now have over 70 pendants for you to choose from.

Here at ChirpHop Studio, we hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start and becomes filled with everything you wish for it and more!

Happy Holidays! More new pendants on the ChirpHop Etsy Store

Just in time for (really) last-minute holiday shopping or treating yourself after you've been treating everyone else, there are 7 new resin pendants in the ChirpHop Studio Etsy store.

Some of them have a holiday or winter theme, like "Celebrate" and "Where's the Partridge?".

Others can give you a taste of springtime, if the holiday rush is turning your thoughts toward warmer weather and quieter times.

The slideshow will let you take a look at all the new additions.

Stop by the shop and have a look around. You know you deserve a little something for yourself!

New resin pendants added to the ChirpHop Etsy store

There are some new additions to the Chirp Hop Studio family. As you can see in the slideshow, the three resin pendants have very different origins as well as palettes and images styles.

One comes from a set of postcards with vibrantly colored Mexican artwork, another is a photographic image from a magazine that resembles a thin, almost lacy cross and the third is from a vintage book about Art Nouveau graphics.

Visit the store to learn more about these and to browse through all our other pendants.
