And remember I said about a necklace without a focal? This is it.

Tossed a bunch of homeless chunkies on a chain... Then undid them and re-strung... then undid them again because the balance wasn't quite right... lather rinse repeat ad infinitum...

Feel like it's been forever since earrings. I'm not sure if I'm OK with the medals being rectangular.
Maybe they could make a rectangular impact some other where... or not.

Tell me these don't make you smile. Only the yellow one whistles, in keeping with its astringent yellow nature.

And then a whole nuther buncha stuuuufs thrown on there. It sounds so fun when I say I throw or toss something on another thing, when in fact it's this whole slow process of trying everything out in every possible configuration, holding up to check the overall balance and visual weight, ad infinitum.

My new Pinteresting has me noticing how goddamn mutherfucking much stuff I've made. Which in turn has me feeling like my life is just a giant hamster wheel. And not even that giant.

Like I used to wonder about artists who could be so consistent in what they made over such a long time. Like, even wondered how they didn't get bored, some of them.

Well that's what I'm on now, I think I've wanted to do this thing and now I can do it so good I do it good every time, so now I gotta find a new better thing to be good at. Evolve n stuff. Point is that up there that you said, that was what I thought a while back- it turned out to be the seed of doing what I'm doing now. Don't let the millipedes hold you back.

See- imma good stories too!

Sugar Candy Kingdom definitely makes me smile, those little babies are awesome, and I love the sweet beading on the hoops. Your colorful pieces are just so wonderful.

Kimberly said...

Seeing what you did with those whimsical little crazy pieces just makes me grin right here right now.
You have such a gift for putting it together and I'm grateful for your obsession.
I haven't been doing the tribal thing for very long, people are making comments that have been seeing my work for years. Your name does seem to come up in that conversation often! You and a few others.
