Came.

I mean "came" like, "the coming attractions mentioned in the last post have arrived" not like "I ca-..." Ok. I'mna stop. My dad reads this sometimes.

(Note: these were scraps left over from making the big ol' arabesque tin earrings below. The shapes sorta chose themselves, though I did trim them down some.)

These 2 sets of earrings above are made of a tea tin sent to me by SalvageBeautyDesign before my trip to Uruguay. I actually blogged what she sent me with this picture:
  
I used the 2 side pieces she sent- here you see only one. Which means I still have that top! 
I know you're jealous.

I had a smaller pair similar to these and someone asked for another pair.

This pipe compass was actually given to me by my father in law. He found it in his junk drawer, I mean. It wasn't like a gift for me to keep. That would be rude.

A burrow from Uruguay. The copper pipe it's hanging on is from the recent surprise mail haul of 2 posts before and I already found a use!

And this is from the surprise mail haul before that. Or certain elements:t the black jet with weave carving, smaller white with weave carving, faceted white,  teacup and charlotte.

I'm kinda super proud of the toggle. I connected a MOP stick that I think was from the mail haul SacredCake or Opulent Oddities sent. It is slightly loose so that it can move along the thinner middle part and hooks to the hammered copper link. Isn't it neat? It's making me so happy.

The curved jasper was also from that haul before last. I know! I didn't think I'd incorporate them so soon. Also, missficklemedia sent me those mustard hoops. I'm so blessed.
And only 2 more classes before I'm free. Is there a name for a panic attack when it's not from fear but from happy anticipation? A freak out?

Yipee! I love those huge tin hoops... grinning huge over here. Thanks for posting the pictures of the tins before hand, that is cool to see. Something about that little burro, too adorable. I like how you are using all these big beads..

Those first earrings are amazing!!!! I love how you cut it on an angle so the picture wasn't so obvious- that would never have occurred to me.

D'you know- even in my times of 'I hate jewelry I never want to see another bead ever again' I come to your blog and you make me want to fly to my desk and tinker with shit for hours. Everything you do in an inspiration. Even stuff I'm not keen on inspires me because I start thinking of how I'd change it so I would. Though it's pretty rare for me to not like something of yours.

Two more classes!!! I believe that feeling is called euphoria. Or rapture?

Wow ! You still have pieces of the tin ? Does that mean that you can make more of these stunning earrings ? I'm looking forward to it. Great job ! ^^

Marin said...

And just like that, they were sold. :( I'm with Sparrow, the inspiration is endless! Beautiful work, as always.

I third the inspiration your blog provides! I don't know about the others, but I still wanna be Fanci when I grow up! Love the burro, the doll head and cup and the pipe pieces.

Congrats on being a full time artist soon! Yay!
