That's right. Got my period.
But it's all good cuz I got new theeengs up.
Here I used my glittery UTEE headpins I showed y'all last time.
I'm noticing more and more folks on etsy using tin as their sheet metal. About time. I mean, why wouldn't you? It's so redonklessly pretty. It's easier to cut and oxidize, too.
I fixed these up some. Instead of a solid wire wrapped column, I included these teal babies from radiantmind. Sure do like that shop.
I was making an effort not to do my usual "Ok, I wanna use pink, so let me throw anything pink at them that I can find within a 12 mile radius." There's a lotta pink, but at least the teals break it up a bit.
Here I go crazy girlie with the pastels!
Made palatable by the grunge.
Some bezel cheats. Or 'work-arounds' as readbetween much more elegantly calls them. There was a time when I thought this kind of thing wasn't allowed. Then I forgot to remember about that. Seems to me if a cab is flat backed, you can pretty much stick it on to anything.
Here I've stuck them on to embossing metal, which is super thin and easily cut with scissors. The one is then glued on to a piece of tin cuz I was sick of making connectors with head pins. I punch a hole with this can't-live-without-it tool:
Then thread a flat, short head pin through. Loop and you got you a link! That's what you got you.
A Trade in Souls.
So I've completely abandoned my 2-hole screw-punch for the punch pliers. They're quite a bit stronger than they look and next to them the screw-punch looks like a slide rule next to a calculator. I'm guessing, I have no idea what a slide rule even is or how it works. Does it slide? ... Does it rule? (Sorry, had to.)
