OK Party People!

Domestic Fetish. Ceramic and Kitchen Miniatures Assemblage Chokers. Rustic Gypsy Cooking.

I gots me THREE new shrines up. Well, this first one I'm just deciding it's a shrine. I call it Domestic Fetish. I can't decide which of these 2 should be the 1st pic. Petra aka JewelIdentity made me this sweet bezel.

And it's  got dollhouse miniatures! Squeeeeee!
Goddamn I've had that spoon/ladle thing for 50 years and finally used it.
Another Petra-fied one:

The Fingers of God. Gold Leaf Shrine with Hand and Pyrite.
The Fingers of God.

Petra-fied. As my little nephew used to say, "I so fanny." And he really was. Funny- not fanny! (Especially all you sickos from the UK and thereabouts. I know what that means over there. Pervs.)
Thanks go out to Happyfallout for this name/narrative.

The Fingers of God. Gold Leaf Shrine with Hand and Pyrite.






The Goddess Eye. Eye Shrine Assemblage Choker.The Goddess Eye.

And finally my leetle eye. I love me some body parts. It may go back to some sick fascination I have with the sick fascinations of Catholicism. Not only in terms of torture, which is ingrained in the history of Europe and thus a necessity for becoming a Saint, but also in the weird symbolism, foremost being the disembodied heart. (Long pause as I realize I have nothing more to say about that...)

P.S. Thank you, La Fileuse, for forgiving me my faux-pas. HAHA! See what I did there? That means 'false step,' if I'm not mistaken. Which now I'm convinced I am.
Goddamn it.

Nothing makes us Brits laugh more than Americas saying fanny. I once watched American Dance Crew where they had a crew called Fanny Pack, I nearly coughed my lungs up. Loving the new necklaces and Petra should start churning out those cuties and get them in her shop.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I love the Goddess Eye one. And you used one of my eye cabochons in it. Yay! I too have a fascination with the weird symbolism of Catholicism. I am especially partial to the Catholic image of Santa Lucia who carries her eyes on a plate.

Wishing you a year of more glorious inspiration - which means another year of eye candy for the rest of us. Love the Goddess Eye - I found a bag of those eyes at the flea market a couple of weeks back...

I luv your wild abandon and the fact that you never seem to stay in the lines. You could string up a bunch of mouse poo and make it cool..

Cept this, Love it when you use little domestic utensils in your jewelry, fanci. Of course I think that's the best use for domestic utensils!
