What with Festivus coming up and all.Once Upon a Time II. Victorian Tribal Cosmic Rustic  Afghan kuchi druzy assemblage.
Here we got some nails. Um... to commemorate Jesus' ... I'm not even gonna write it, it's too awful. And NOT the reason I use nails anyways. That would be cray-cray.Once Upon a Time. Victorian Tribal Cosmic Rustic  Afghan kuchi coin gold leaf titanium rainbow crystal roman glass assemblage.
Look at these leeeetle wired stars with pyrite and hematite:
Twinkle. Rustic Assemblage Earrings. Gypsy Grey Found Object Monochromatic.
Fancylinda made them and sent them to me! She's gonna be selling them in her shop here. Squeeeee.
Death and the Maiden. Resin Tarot Earrings.
These are some earrings depicting mini repros of perhapse the earliest complete tarot deck found, the Visconti Tarot. Look at me with the knowings. And the backs are entertaining:Death and the Maiden. Resin Tarot Earrings.
Also I reworked a couple pendants into chokers.Secrets. Cosmic Choker with Faux Raku.
Secrets. Cosmic Choker with Faux Raku.Just because Sparrow suggested it and it marinated in my skull until I had to.A Lion, a Star. Cosmic Choker with Faux Raku.
A Lion, a Star. Cosmic Choker with Faux Raku.The rainbow titanium crystal points were just made for my faux raku thing. A match made in heaven. And by heaven I mean my personal heaven, my studio.The Alchemist. Cosmic Resin Ornament in Vintage Cookie Cutter.
Here we see that I wasn't kidding when I said I'd made ornaments. They're perfect for your Pagan winter solstice celebration! Or you Hanukkah bush or whatevs.The Battle. Cosmic Alchemy Resin Ornament in Vintage Cookie Cutter.
The Battle. These odd figures are from this crazy 1400s book called Aurora Consurgens, "Rising Dawn."  Here, a figure depicting the Father/Sun jousts with the Mother/Moon. Each carry a shield depicting the other's emblem. Similar to the dots in the yin-yang, these symbolize the existence of each within the other. The orig:
I had to take a self-portrait at work in my studio for a book so I thought I'd skip the cleaning and just, you know, put some make-up on. By the way, if being in a hurry ever inspires you to dry your hair with your hardware-store grade heatgun, you should really really stop when you start to hear sizzling. All the ends of my hair are crunchy.

What a great, happy picture of you! I never did my hair with a heatgun, but I did once try to buff my nails with a Dremel...

I'd better get to making and listing some stars now that you've elevated them to a new level.

Nice photo, fanci-woman!!!

betweenreader said...

Marina is laughing because she doesn't believe she has to clean up the mess and resort the beads into little jars and plastic boxes. And also because she is gorgeous, inside and out.
