One more day!

Because I doubt anyone's coming to class on Friday. I managed to sneak in a little photographing/editing/posting time today, though. I finally found a "brush" or "filter" or "action" to give things the olde looke.
The Interplanetary Horror Vacui. Victorian Tribal Earrings.Thank you SacredCake for finding it for me here.
The Heliopause. Victorian Tribal Earrings.

Cuz instead of being a series of steps, it's just a picture of a viewfinder that you layer over your picture!

Dark Matter. Victorian Tribal Earrings.Here it is but less so.
Silver Bells and Cockle Shells. Victorian Tribal Earrings.And more so.
Lullaby.Compare with a non-vingified version:
Give up the Ghost. Victorian Tribal Necklace.I'm pricing these a tad steep because of all the sales I've been inundated with of late. Poor me.
A Great Fall. Victorian Tribal Assemblage Necklace.
Tumbling After.  Victorian Tribal Earrings.
Here's a paragraph from a convo I got today from a buyer:
Also--I LOVE the earrings. I wore them to our friends' house for dinner the night I received them, and my friend commented on them so I took them off and she and I actually had the kind of conversation about them that two mothers might have while cradling, oh, I don't know--a newly hatched extinct bird from some other dimension, that was sadly but bravely dying because it wasn't meant for this world--something like that. The delicacy, the details, the belie-ing weight and substance/sturdiness; the impossiblity. I don't even know what to say. This is pathetic perhaps, but when I see the little edwardian-ornate details of the frame encased under the resin like that, I kind of want to cry. I love it. Thank you so much.

Isn't that amazing?

Thanks for sharing - I have been trying to figure out how to do this!
The comment IS amazing - and yet, not surprising. Your work is like that. I have to go drool over your pieces some more...

You're not steep! If anything your shop is too much of a bargain, considering all the work you do not only in construction but in alteration and prepping, then there's the actual hunting down of the pieces. You is cheap m'love.
