   Ask All.                                             A River in You.                               Let the Sea. 
Which, I gotta share this most hilarious comment about them: "And your creations are also brilliant, of course, but look out for too much scrapbooking :)"  I believe this was in reference to the ephemera, lol! Can I just say, I agree Star of the East, and how refreshing is a bit of creative criticism in the comments? Also, welcome to my blog.
And some new babies:
Youthful Glory. Cosmic Alchemy Bracelet.
Youthful Glory.
One of my resy bits with some thangs. And a bezel setting with text at the bottom, filled up with Utee. Kinda neat. And these phantom quartzes someone just mailed me. Was it Tribalis? Can I really be this spacey?
Youthful Glory. Cosmic Alchemy Bracelet.I've been getting into combining two photos into one slot lately. I guess because bracelets are so hard for me to photograph. I added these images to this listing, where the pictures of the bracelets in piles really gave no idea as to how it would look on:Does Consciousness Really Exist. Cosmic Gypsy Bracelet Set.Does Consciousness Really Exist. Cosmic Gypsy Bracelet Set.
Here's another newly listed bracelet though it just sold:Terrible Truths. Rustic Gypsy Cosmic Alchemy Bracelet.

So here's what I made with these babies from my resin/utee/tin-backed batch I previously blogged about. Though I didn't add these in the pictures so you don't know what I'm talking about. So I'll stop now.
Where there is ruin. Salvaged tin gypsy blade hoops.Where there is ruin.
Some tin babies from a Uruhaul tin.
Speaking of which I just found and bought this little pearl from this etsy shop:Vintage Children's Book -Uruguay in Story and Pictures - by Lois Donaldson - Pictures by Kurt Wiese
It's so flippin' cute it's flippin retarded.
Vintage Children's Book -Uruguay in Story and Pictures - by Lois Donaldson - Pictures by Kurt Wiese
Published in 1943 in Chicago, of all places.
Vintage Children's Book -Uruguay in Story and Pictures - by Lois Donaldson - Pictures by Kurt WieseThe final sentence is worth sharing: "Uruguay, though small, is now an up-to-date country which takes care of its citizens and which is respected everywhere." Aw, shucks.

Oh I had this up previously but there was a patch up top that I'd rubbed off too much and it showed right through, which was distracting. So I bronze rub-n-buffed the back, see. Lately I'm all about eliminating distractions. Is there a distracting shine to the metals? Eliminate it! Is that dangle distracting from the overall design? KEEEL EET! Is the cord zigging when it should zag? Are you saying to yourself "No one will notice"? Well, they will. So fix it! That is all.
