Gratitude

The Sky Full of Signs. Rustic pastel rhinestone assemblage earrings with religious Mary medals.
Thank you guys for all your lovely comments. I really appreciate the time you take out to leave them. Every single one of them is a little treasure to my heart.
Mr. Devices said reading the Gordita post over and over again has made him feel better and he's apparently sent the link to every person he works with. My mom was also comforted by it and that made me so happy.
The Desire to Weep.
I've been making away, inspired by the simple act of putting a ton of things on the floor from my formidable stash and diving in.
Here, bits of antique bookplate moon shots under, like, an inch of resin. I used the backs of these octagonal bezels and they almost look like little old fashioned TVs. (And it came out a perfect 7.5 inches- woo-hoo!)

The Curse.
This was a celluloid container lid from Kathystash I leafed and resined. Smokey quartz cluster in archeological find metal...
The Curse. Rustic Victorian tribal dark assemblage statement art necklace.
Do you see that long peach bead? It was made by 4ophelia who is taking her first steps into lampwork and sent me a bunch of gorgeous wonky bits. Hats off to her bravery. Hats off to all the ladies who make magic with fire. (I'm looking at you Numinosity.)
The following piece creeps Mr. Devices out but I frackin' love it.Singing Praise adn Jubilation. Rustic Victorian tribal assemblage necklace in peach pink tan.
Singing Praise and Jubilation.
And I put a shit ton of work into it. I put a shit ton of work into all of these. I have so much amazing stuff, I have to do it justice. And yeah that means higher prices and necklaces that will never sell oh well.

This little face was given to me ages ago by SacredCake and I adore him.Delight in Solitude. Rustic boho tribal assemblage necklace with amethyst and buddhist talisman.
Delight in Solitude.
Here we have a teacup from Kathystash and an antique amulet from Patroness. It's a show stopper. 
Well, I think so but what do I know? I don't go around stopping shows as a general rule. I don't even wear this stuff. (I'm working on a choppy, layered mohawk and lobe-stretching coil plugs. Because I'm a 20 year old boy, apparently.)

Also I really love the quotes I found for this batch. Go look if you like deep dark words and their etherial evocations. If not just go here for redonk tumblr goofiness.
(P.S. I'll do the giveaway winners next, I promise! You can still comment here to enter.)

awww poor Mr Devices :( it breaks my heart that he's so sad about the kitty. the fat ones are the most evil little fluff bums cos they steal hearts the fastest and boys are very sensitive(even if they won't admit). it's ok Mr Devices it'll be ok. Chica Gordita had a good second life :)

oohh my bead looks so lovely there with the awesomeness. see i was right to send you all that stuff cos it fits right in with your style

...so are you making plugs?!! or are you wearing plugs?? ...i totally think you should make plugs. TOTALLY! :D

Your beautiful work and equally amazing writing is what brought me over from etsy. I thought, 'oh, she has a blog... I must visit!' I woke up early to get some work done and have been reading past posts and admiring your work for quite some time now. You are as entertaining as you are artistically talented! Thanks for filling my morning with inspiration!

Those top earrings are so exciting...stuff going every which way, really original but I don't know if I've seen anything of yours that wasn't entirely original. The necklace with the face. Crazy cool! I love coming to visit this blog to marvel at your creations.
Sorry about the cat, we just went to an old bar in our town that houses a 30 year old cat named Munchie. Truly amazing.
I just got back to blogging a bit this year so stop on by for a visit. Trying to get more in the groove of participation again.

You never cease to amaze with your work. Truly it is like you have a magical font of inspiration that you dip into that is endless. So sorry to hear about poor little Gordita, I hope you and your family find comfort in knowing how good you were to her and how much you loved here while she was here. Hugs to all. <3
