I'm sidling back into my mess after my absence.
Can't even call it a studio, it's just a pit. Finished these dark stacks in any case.
Beats in Me.
Had some Vintaj findings beadybaby sent me so I put these adorable vintage decals I got from TeapotsandTelephones on them. Couldn't resist the cute.
A Second Heart.
Another etsybud sent me a million tiny bead dangles and instead of doing anything clever I just jump-ringed them all into little clusters on this guy. Why bother thinking of clever things, really?
Also I've been doing some repair work. Did you know one of the very 1st people to "discover" me when I started was SacredCake? She bought these redonk things I made early on and still wears them. Like this in January 2010:
Look at that yellow-ass photography. So on the notes to seller she wrote, "I can hardly wait to wear this....I know it will be a favorite of mine for the rest of my living years. Blessings, Jennifer " How sweet is that? And sure enough she wore it to bits. Mind you, in terms of my jewelry education 3 years is eons ago so I didn't know better than to use regular sewing thread to affix heavy glass pearls. She sent it back with a bunch of pearls missing. This gave me the opportunity to fix and even improve it a bit:
I trimmed the crotchet fibers that were annoying me and only later thought to consider she might not want that. Oh well. Where I tried to oxidize the wire affixing the beads I managed to make the fabric verdigris. Er.
On October of 2010 she got this wacky thing:
At least now the light is white. Nice blur though. So a couple links broke off and I decided to fix it with some added bling.
And with that I bid you all a fond farewell. My bitches.
