Winner, ear bits, wrist wraps.

Winner of the earrings- LUCIE! Etsy convo me your address.
So here's some earrings with greybirdstudio yums, archeological button and wrapped opal moonstones and such.
Damn greybird howyoudoit?
 I was at a loss for what to do with my crazy long strip which Marcela so admired so I cut it into three and made them into double-wrap bracelets.
 Secured the ends with more stitching, added buttons for closures and made some button loops with torn bits of an old Tshirt.
In fact a lot of the backing on these is that same old Tshirt.
That's from when I found myself in Wisconsin wanting to make a sewy thing but realized I hadn't scrounged enough fabric and decided it was time to sacrifice the old T I'd brought for sleeping in.
Well worth it. I also used some white Rub-n-Buff on bits that were too dark and added a lot of paste wax to the fabric to make it look older and to strengthen/stiffen it. Except I feel like it just looks wet.
 So after dinner I'll list. For now, its taco bar night at Mom's house so I'm gonna make like a doe and get the buck out of here.
Oh I almost forgot:
sneeze. via

Is that what you're sayin? You made the awesome bracelets in your NIGHTIE?! So they're kind of Fanci's relics!
