Hello My Dear Bloggees

Turkoman. Rustic Tribal Dangles with Ceramic Art Beads.
Turkoman.
A while ago I decided these weren't finished for some reason. Now I've decided they are. Who knows the mysterious mind of the artist. The lazy, lazy artist.

Belphegor. Rustic Gypsy Hot Pink and Black Chocker with Fossil and Opal.
Belphegor.
I'm working on this new series which was partially inspired by a lot of contemporary high-end art jewelry from here.

So I decided to make these redonkulessly big Turkoman/Afghan beads into bold and simple pieces.

I had to hang the pods a bit low since their thickness would make them stand out awkwardly against the collarbone neck chest area place.

Blood Drinker, Heart of Flame. Rustic Gypsy Choker Afghan Turkoman Metal Talisman.

Here's one that can be worn with the dangle bead toward the front or tucked in back.

The hammered copper strip is actually bezel-making wire which I never ended up making bezels with. Burnishing, man- pain in the ass!!! And rivets. No, they're not a pain in the ass, I'm saying the strip has rivets. And not articulating very well.

This was too bright, so I sanded it so it would be able to hold on to some acrylic paint. And used the black... i cant... sentences....
ggggggggghhhhhhh.....

And also, some less expensive neckpieces= good.

The Orphaned Mind. Asymmetrical Found Object Dangles with Decoupage and Gold Foil.

What else? Some earrings. I'm still on my gold foil kick. Just give me time to mash up some more tin.

And some more asymmetricals with beads by happyfallout. All I have to do is just find some pieces that combine without matching, find some way to connect them and bam. Done.

You guys. today I had a juice with oranges carrots collard greens parsley beets ginger and half a lemon. I got such a health rush from it I practically peed myself.

Here's what I'm working on.


I also received some crazy mail love from SacredCake. So much stuff in fact that I was unable to arrange things for cute pictures.


I was just randomly pulling things out going "I wonder if I could foil this? How would this look with gold foil?" And yes, that is a little sheep and a pink piggie. Wonder how those would look with gold foil?

<--So these are from amth13, whose shop isn't called amth13. 
Guys- you should all make your user/blog/etsyshop names the same thing! You see how that is logical, yes? So when you comment that name will come up and then if someone links to your shop, or if your shop appears in a treasury I see, the name will ring a bell and I'll click on it!

 Yes? Guys? Cuz as lovely as all your various names are... it's called marketing people! Brand identity, baby.
Oh and here are these totally bizarre metal toggle buttons shaped like bamboo sticks that came in the pack. They're so silly it's kinda magical.
Petra (also not her shop name!) also sent a crazy bag o' loot, but I just got it, and I was too lazy take more pix. Maybe tomorrow.

Sacred Cake said...

you're gonna need a HUGE lot of lax to age soma those redonculously huge beadcaps....but I was imagining all the stuff you'd make as I was packing it...please pass along what you can't use! (I know you will)(shipwreck does wonders with all kinds of stuff!) xo to you shipwreckdandy!
xo to you too Fanci...I lurve ya. You know I do.

Sacred Cake said...

CRAP. I can't blame that one on my pinky...besides, its kinda funny, but i meant JAX,
not LAX and this weird configuration was from my bum pinky, which, as you know, has its own mindset...

Was thinking of you today while I was at the trinket vendor at the ghat on the Ganges looking at all manner of theengs... Thinking WWFDD? What would Fanciful Devices do with this? The nice man added about 200 or 300 years to the age of each item so I would pay more so I guess I shouldn't be too insulted when he guessed my age to be 65 instead of 55.

I was looking at all your loot from everyone. What nice friends! I did a double take on the loot from sacredcake. On Monday, I was down at our local reuse place and I brought home that exact same tin that is in the picture! It is destined to be cut, punched and domed this weekend.

I really like your gold foiled fish lure earrings.

Have a great day.

Glad they arrived safely, can't imagine how much stash sacredcake must have! Loving the fishing tackle earrings. Girls love a bit of tackle...running...

martinisfor2 said...

OMG fanci, you have out done yourself once again with your new creations!!! one of these days i will be lucky enough to own some!!! i was dancing over to your site to favorite them before i even got to to see the the box of loot you received!!! you are one lucky gal! i receive loot from two friends back home, but not as exciting as yours. i drool over it and begin designing in my head before thinking about what you will do with your glorious imagination!!! looking forward to see!
xox, LuAnn @ martinisfor2 on etsy

Janet aka anvilartifacts said...

What a treasure trove! What fantastic things are you going to make with that plethora of yummy? Loving the gold, texty stuff. Oh yeah, wasn't there some dialogue about your "boob" earrings awhile back? Hahaha sure there was.
Ok fanci, what's the deal with the filigree? If you all don't know about this, a few posts ago, miss awesome here, posted a pic of some papered filigree that I went absolutely crazy for. Sweet incredibly awesome sent them to me!!! For a gift! Just because she's a generous wonderful person! Thank you sooo much, fanci! Love them.!!
But in the interim, I tried the paper filigree myself, on the exact filigree you see above. Um, cept mine looked nothing like that! Not even in the same universe of results. I remember you said you used your fingers mostly to get the filigree pushed into the nooks and crannies. So my question is this, do I really have to have your actual fingers to get these great results? Apparently so! Now I know, it's those fanci bionic hands that are the necessary ingredient to turning out cool stuff, time after time. You never cease to amaze! :)

richelle said...

Ah, what a great idea! You should definitely send leftovers to shipwreck dandy!

Corvid Delights said...

Those large Afghan bead chokers are cool, they remind me of old weapons... maces.. that's it. Collard greens... going to have to try collard greens... hmmm

Child, you are ~ h i l a r i o u s ~, you write gorgeously, and your artistic brilliance knows no bounds.
Further, you deserve blessings for your care of your artwife Sparrow (whose healing gets a shot of good karma
right here and now. My sistahs, do send it!)

Now, as I've joined the fan club and pilgrim my poverty-stricken but nonetheless design-awed eyeballs to
your Etsy cave (as you so wisely link to yourself there), an examination of the description of Belphegor
is in order. Y'all see hot pink anything with an opal or fossil? Just thought I'd bring that to your
attention. Because it is FAB--and, well, it's just a marketing thing, yo.
