More stuff's up.


To Cast a Spell. Victorian Tribal Crystal Quartz Point Necklace.
To Cast a Spell.
This is the stuff I gave you a sneak peek of with the tiny pictures.

To Cast a Spell. Victorian Tribal Crystal Quartz Point Necklace.
But then I realized if you clicked on the little pictures, you could see them perfectly anyways.

Earth Mother. Rustic Gypsy Victorian Tribal Virgin Mary Necklace.
Earth Mother.
Certainly some of you numbnuts didn't realize that either- so these pix are for you. Lub me some numbnuts.

Here's another wire bezel, but not soldered this time.

On the listing you can see the back, too. This wire bezel was originally going to be for the next piece below. That certainly didn't work. But let me show you from whence came this focal:
Right there behind granny. I had to wedge it apart with a crowbar. OK, not really. But when I got it out, I saw it had sorta been mounted on to a piece of plastic that was from maybe a car part or something. It had an indistinct paper label... You can see, in any case, how people recycle and use what they got in non-wealthy countries. It's pretty cool, even though they certainly don't seem to think so...


The Sweet Sisters. Victorian Photo Pendant with Tribal Glass.
I ended up finding a much simpler solution for joining this photo to its frame.

Anywho, you can see the Victorian Tribal in full force. Balancing the opposites, synthesizing dualities, strollin' and high-rollin'.

The Spark. Embossed Lighter Victorian Tribal Assemblage Necklace.
Oh! Remember I said something about an experimental enamel-y heat embossing treatment that stampers do? Yeah, this is that. But also kinda not. Its my own version. Some time when I'm not on the 1st day of my period I'll explain.

I braided that. The leather strip was cheap and I was sure I'd never find a use for it. (Chinese cheapo bead store in U.) Now I so wish I'd gotten more. The trick is to turn the strip over and in as you braid it. 
That way it's not flat but rather rounder. If that makes sense. Which it so doesn't. Shut up.

The Mushroom Hunters. Dimensional Folded Tin Bezel Assemblage.
Here's a folded tin bezel, like in the tutorial, but with dimensional elements.

It's in the vein of my cutesy stuff that often stagnates in the store but I can't help it- I think it's adorable.

The Vision. Victorian Tribal Antique Assemblage Bracelet.
Here's some eyeballz for Sparrow.

The Turkoman button is also emboss...enam... embezzled? Cuz I need a new term. I think 'embezzled' works.

Blood of the Vine. Rustic Gypsy Victorian Tribal Grape Chandelier Earrings.
And finally these. But they sold already.

Actually I'm 38 now, cause April happened.

Also on the subject of body parts- I love how you apologise to me every time you show them. But fuck you anyway. :D
