Two sort of  'reveals' in this post. First- Sparrow! Those beads are just the kind you'd get from one the necklaces you salvage. So lookit:Angels of Torment. Rustic Gypsy Necklace with Tin and Gemstone Pyramid.

The teeny whites and pearly ones are vintage, the beige are Indonesian and the mint are from dollarbead.

And they're perfectly adorable. And I finally found something to do with this damned quartz pyramid.
Inspiration? Yes of course:

Raw Apatite Oxidized Silver PendantBy this awesome etsyan.





So my second and final 'reveal' piece... by which I think I mean piece I'm eager to show y'all... um, is this-Decent into the Elder Blood. Primitive Rustic Choker with Gold Leaf, Garnet, Horse Hair and Customized Prayer Box.
Decent into the Elder Blood.
It's got all sortsa gold leafing on garnets, black tourmalines, clay, ceramic, cloisonne (oh wait that one's not foiled), metal Afghan and yeah.
Decent into the Elder Blood. Primitive Rustic Choker with Gold Leaf, Garnet, Horse Hair and Customized Prayer Box.                     But wait! There's more! Call now and you also get this hammered copper hook I made and am sorta pleased with because of its length. In addition, you'll notice a circle of velvet trim from which hooks a tin cone with a sexy horse hair tail hanging down. Oh yeah.

Decent into the Elder Blood. Primitive Rustic Choker with Gold Leaf, Garnet, Horse Hair and Customized Prayer Box.
But we're so confident you'll love your decentintotheelderblood choker that for a limited time only we're also throwing in an antique Uruguayan needle case which has been oxidized and foiled. If you wore it now, the case would open and the whole piece would flop right off. But! I'm going to either A- put a special prayer/poem/blessing in it at the request of the buyer, then close it forever, or B- send as is for the buyer to add, I dunno, grandma's ashes and that tooth that fell out when she got into a drunken bar brawl and adhere it shut herself.
How much would you expect to pay for all this? Ten, twenty million dollars? Well, if you call within the last 20 minutes, cuz we can't do this all day, you can have this entire goddamn package for just one low payment of  43104.00 Yemeni rials! That's just 3 installments of 76 086.6667 Albanian lek!  I also accept Botswana Pulas and recently passed gall stones.

Little Brown Sparrow said...

THAT PYRAMID. I want to marry it.

I don't know if it's just cause I'm on a visionary vibe lately, but this stuff is like, even more awesome than usual. I think you've gone up a rung.

I love that you're honest about charging high prices cause of the sale. I didn't notice- i saw the prices and thought 'bout time she charged a decent amount!' cause i want you to show your Dad a sold $500 necklace.

Alice said...

Fabulous stuff!!! Maybe those big 'udders' are drawing in some sort of creative super powers.

Thanks for the great inspiration and the laughs today.

How the hell does she do it

TesoriTrovati said...

Love it all! But your tin pieces are truly magical. Old. Mysterious. Like they came from a cat lady's house with tins of num-nums for the kittehs.

By the way... you have been blogged! I wrote about the bracelet challenge on today's Art Bead Scene and gushed a bit about your great tute! http://artbeadscene.blogspot.com/2012/04/get-your-bangles-on.html
And will do so tomorrow when I reveal my own stacks of tribal bangles. Yes! I said stacks!

Enjoy the day fanci!

Damn - No Albanian lek, hell, no American dollars for that matter. Gushing over the new eye candy. Utters, I think I have a cat who looks like she has utters right now. Encore, encore....

Flotsam Tide said...

Wow... I am speechless. What is there left to say? Everything here is amazing... Decent into the Elder Blood is freaking awesome! And the toggle clasp on From Your Heart's Haven... just beautiful. Man... shakes head in astonishment...

Juliette Williams said...

Absolutely beautiful. I really love the feel these new pieces have. It's a journey and not a collection of mementos or glimpses of the past. I don't know, something like that registered in my muddly mind. In love with that choker. Ahhhh.

Anvil, you said it best!
This is another round of jaw dropping awe inspired works. That horsey tail one is bad to the bone.

stregata said...

OMG - someone give me a roll of paper towels, the drool is a torrent.... you are on a roll for sure. Anvil is right - udder amazement....
btw - I don't know what that alcholic kitty is saying, but my cat looked absolutely consternated while listening...

Sandra said...

Pyramid necklace sold. And not to me, woe. ;; well, it would have made me completely broke at this time of the month, so that's good, I guess? If I keep telling myself that, I might start to believe it in the end, lalala ...
