|New in shop- I forgot to post these yesterday. |
Actually, I seriously fucked up the photos. Oh well.
richelle- I took them special to enter in the book- they had to be way bigger than shop photos.
Lela- Publishers are a lot more messy than people think. I think it's totally normal that folks not get notified. In the Stampington magazines, in the letters to the editors the first letter is always someone saying "Oh what an honor to be featured in your magazine! I didn't know you'd decided to go with my piece! What a shock to see my work on the cover!"
Also- yes it IS the same mannequin. I just covered the gray plastic one in papers and washes of white paint.
ensourdine- I love Howl's Moving Castle!
Chelsea-Mostly I don't need to seal, but if I notice a slight rusty dust, I rub in a wax that's similar to microcrystaline wax. And no, it doesn't irritate anything. Metals themselves (without a coat of rust) are more likely to irritate skin.
Kathy Barrick- Yeah, they liked my stuff. I'm not sure when they'll use them though. They said something about February.
Jennifer Valentine- It is all about the floor! I need just about everything I own to be out and visible. Usually I crawl around a bit. Bingo wouldn't help if his life depended on it. Spoiled old mutt.
amth13- I would have asked for a copy but since hubs insisted I get the copy we saw at the shop, I now have no use for more!
stregata- Yeah, but the book has over a thousand pages, it's not that much. On the other hand, there wasn't a lot of jewelry total... And considering I'm not primarily steampunk, it is flattering.
enyda- I've mentioned before that no, I don't wear jewelry. I'm too boyish or something. Before I was medicated, though, I used to look like a walking circus. Oh, I think my favorite recent piece was
Jackie- It depends. I usually make several at a time all together. Sometimes I make bits and then can't figure a use for them in ages, then suddenly all these different bits come together in 10 minutes. But lets say each takes about a day's work. Maybe. Not counting gathering supplies or photographs and listing. But maybe not, who knows.
Regina Moore- No I wasn't irritated about not being notified! There are children being sold into sexual slavery as we speak- there's something to be upset about. And yes, that certainly was a good enough question to enter you in the giveaway.
Margie- Ok, deep breaths. I did send in my pictures to them for the purposes of consideration in the book. So it wasn't like it was that out of the blue. I realize now I didn't explain that clearly in my post! I even had to fax in a form giving my permission and everything. I just didn't know they'd chosen mine.
shibui- How did you know? My hands are horrible. And permanently dirty. And the nails are all bitten, which means I must be ingesting all kinds of grime. But it's art grime, so how can that be bad for me?
But yeah, I wanna do tutorials but I'm concerned about the ugly fingers issue.
Aqua Junko Artworks- Any questions! You could even ask why the sky is blue! I make jewelry because when I tried to make wall-type art there were no limiting parameters and it was too much. I couldn't figure out my thang. And I seem to know what I wanna do with jewelry but not with wall type stuff. I always had the eye of an artist but only started making after getting on meds 9 years ago and becoming functional. I seem to like artifacts cuz they're mysterious and point toward some 'other' reality.
Louise- First I always pee. Then, I go make coffee.
Jodi- Awwww! Shush, you!
La Fileuse- I don't know lady, why? Cuz you wanna cut up the car and make it into jewelry? Or use it as a huge pendant for a gigantic necklace?
