Air-dry clay cab from Anvil.

Sorry, I'm still high over my white balance discovery. I'm going to annoy y'all to death with it.
Tune in for more one-year-past-expiration music videos!

I'm learning that if you do want to turn up the whites, you have to hold your camera 10x stiller. More still. Ben Stiller. 

This was a little tin from Uruguay and into the back I tucked a surprise 

This ax and plaster heart were K-haul. And tons of those beads were gifts so I am one lucky bitch. Realizing this, I decided to splurge on some beadage. But then what happens is all I have are crazy amazing ($) beads and I can't sell anything cheap. I'm too fancy for my own natural cheapness.

 What's cool about these is that the opal (I almost wrote opiate) dangle is connected to the back post nut.
You can sorta see it here➙
So I couldn't pass up this purchase for just ten bucks➙
And actually scrubbed them with soapy water and an old toothbrush. Also scraped at them with an exacto knife, I'd be a terrible archeologist. So now I find myself the proud owner of ten million little religious medals. Earrings, ho!

I just love a ruined old medal. Also these rhinestone chain bits from Kathy I made into dangles. 

With posts and some asymmetry.
 This little silver case was also from Kathy. That strand of amazing green lampwork is firebabies.
I just threw in every awesome bead I could find. Glowy!
Between the Vast and the Miniscule. Cosmic assemblage earrings with gold leaf rustic bling galaxy nebula green.Speaking of which, one convo bud and supply trader who I've mentioned before, Claudia, was complimenting all over these. I mentioned that the cabs were just cheap old plastic and she answered in her poetic fashion, "yeah, but
cheap old plastic + you =
G L O W B O O B I E S."
That word stayed with me and I replied:
"My favorite episode of jeopardy.
A: Glowboobies
Q:What did the CSI team discover when running a blacklight over a sex doll?"
She now insists I have to name a piece "Blacklight Over a Sex Doll." But which piece y'all? Now she's on a roll suggesting more titles in the same vein for a severe shift in the overall tone of my shop.
Hangin’ with the Macaques.
Black Garter Belt in Karate.
Hear No Weevil
Three Dog Night in a Three Man Cave.

So, in other news, Claudia's high...

Now I really have to go take a...

Congratulations on working out the light!
Now you can show your work in a satisfying way.
I like you going on about it... it was hard won and we can benefit and cheer with you too.

{--It's my pleasure, Cynthia. If La Devices gets fresh with you again, you can always try withholding compliments...Although, *damn*, that would be a lot of work.}

"hear no weevil"

And here I thought glowboobies was great. Thanks for the laughs in this manic night.

You find the coolest stuff. I think I'd have much more fun trying not to break my neck while stepping around your floor than my own. (Though happy to have enough junk to be worthy of neck breaking.)

Keep on inspiring cause you rock the rocks!

omg that little axe is sooooo cute.

If you don't let your camera's exposure go slower than 1/25, you won't have to tape it to Ben Stiller. Which is good, because he's 90% cringe. (Zoolander and Mystery Men being the only two worthwhile nods although Envy was pretty good if not a little weird even for me, and voice acting doesn't count).
