One of many cool 'face' coins I got from U this time. I'm liking the dusty lilac lately.
I had all these fancy ideas about hammering and soldering a mounting for coins... and then I just cut some filigree in half and glued that sucker on.

Sparrow and I were chatting about how having great supplies gives you this I-can-do-no-wrong feeling. It's all about getting the choice bits, that's half the work right there.
Here's a new kick I'm on: double-wrapped necklaces. The trick (I've decided) is to have a second focal to act as a counterbalance to the weight of the primary one. Elsewise, the second wrap would strangle you at your windpipe and then you wouldn't look as good.
Here's another face coin I slapped on a heavy metal tag SacredCake sent me. (She sent the filigree I used above, too. I know!) And that's a raw leather woven cord from U and a hippy 'bone' ear plugs. It may be plastic, but we'll keep that between us. In a moment of inspiration/delusion, I bought some cheap ear pieces like that for closures.

Here's another example of the double wrap. I'm not sure what I think of it. Hmmm...
Just now looking at the pictures I realize what's bugging me- the cord loop and the big black closure are on the same side, competing for attention instead of flattering each other. Which means I'll have to re configure every thing and take new pictures and blah blah blah. Crap. Just when my left hand has started to hurt like the dickens again. The Charles Dickens.

Isn't this a super Sparrow-esque piece? The fabric, if not the shape anyways. I got all these amazing brooches and I just thought- why take them apart? Why not use them as brooches in brooches? I hate the word 'brooch' because its pronounced 'broach' but every time I write or read it I think 'bruuuuch' which makes me feel like I'm going to mispronounce it when I say it.
Not that I should worry since my ego is bursting with this post CorvidDelights wrote about yours truly. I'm gonna make my parents read it!
Oh I almost forgot to list this:
I also made a new lot, but gave Debbi dibs since she convoed me about it. And I no longer feel overmuch-supply-panic! Ah the wonders of de-stash.
Imna go find some hand-heater pads....
