More Earring Factory

 The coupon code is off, thank you guys.

Here's two pairs of earrings with oxidized brass stampings layered over gold leafed tin.

My new addiction is listening to This American Life on soundcloud. Sooo transfixing!  

There's a couple dangly bits here by Sparrow, who isn't making jewelry for now but is enjoying her new AC quite a bit.


You can also see I've been using lots of ScorchedEarthonEtsy bits like these which have an AB coating that looks like an oil slick. I know!

Here we have some ScorchedEarth and some Sparrow bits with religious medals and a bit of asymmetry.
Sweet and simple, acorns over ScorchedEarth drops!
I've also been altering these utee beads sent to me by my etsybud Claudia.
I've been sanding them to remove any shiny and give a rough etched texture... 
dirt-waxing them...    I've used them in earrings because they're so lightweight.
Since each one is OOAK, I've been pairing them up as close as I could, but they're not exactly matched, which you know I love.
Here I think these work well since the top bit is thick and a touch weighty.
These are light as air. These I rubbed with black Guilder's.
These too but I'm not sure about them. I just am useless with tube beads! Does someone want these? If so let me know in the comments and they're yours. You pay shipping.

One of you mentioned I'd soon be on the floor again- Stregata? Yeah, I'm gonna blame you that on the floor again. Might be because I never put up the shelves and I don't have enough surface. Whatevs. I also haven't cleaned out my closet in maybe 7 years for that matter....  Ugh. Why do things always need doing? Hu? I hate maintaining things. I can't keep plants, I forget to brush my teeth... ugh. Maintaining! My least favorite aspect of life. So repetitive. Every day- eat, pee, sleep! Everyday! Screw it. What am I babbling about? What else did I wanna mention?


Oh yeah- On the post before last, Betsi Goutal commented, "Did you know that wombats poop cubes?"
Yes but did you know that this is the second time someone's brought that up in my comment section? On a post on 8/22/12 I included these pictures

which caused alteredarcheology to ask, "Did you know that a wombats poop is square? Not sure about 'roo poo."
On the following post I had to include this video which attempts to explain the phenomenon.

Now I have a great excuse to include this picture which I happened to have on my desktop where I'm always dragging cute animal pix off my browser window to later make Mr Devices look at while I scream, "LOOK AT THAT! LOOK! HOW!" etc.
I don't even understand what these creatures are but I must cuddle one.

NuminosityBeads said...

Bunches of grand creations as always. I love how your grunged up the utee beads and yes, I am totally with your on the diFficulty of designing with tube beads...jest forget it!.
I'm trying to get back on the blog wagon again. I don't know what happened but it seems there were a few of us on that boat or does it just seem that way because I'm so numicentric?)
Nice Pertafication, you certainly do them justice.

dawn said...

Those beads are all stunning...and I would love the tube beads ones if they are not snatched already :)

Jayne Capps said...

every single one of these is spot on, I am coveting them ALL

Betsi Goutal said...

Hahaha, I did not know that (still only up to mid/late 2011) but I am not at all surprised given your fondness for both cute animals and weird facts.

I am SOOO with you on the maintaining things rant! Ugh! I swear, every single meal lately I'm like "what again??"

The thing with tube beads, I find, is that it's tough to make them work on their own. A little wire wrapping with or without a few tiny beads might make you happier with the results. Not totally sure if that makes sense... maybe I should blog that... hmmm...

Also, does this amazing Etsybud of yours sell those eyeball-searingly gorgeous UTEE beads? Cuz ughhhh I need some. (She says, having just got a bigass container of UTEE in the mail today. Hush.)

Beatnheart said...

yeah your friend claudia has got me drolling over her utee beads which look like basha beads...does she sell them? if she doesn;t she should cause we all want em right?

I am taking your advice and destashing and it is going really well with boxes of stuffs flying outta here...i can almost see my table top now!! i feel clean... ready now to mess it up again...now i want those claudia beads and you sure know how to make them look awesome too..

neshuma said...

Wow, I'm honored. Thank you. (Neshuma = Claudia.) You rock, FanciPeeps~! Marina, your creative genius and spiritual generosity know no bounds. I am going to have to open shop after all.

Lucie said...

Wow so much beauties!!!! An orgy for the eyes!!!
I agree, these utee beads are awesome

Emmanuelle Roué said...

What an amazing collection of earrings, as usual. I'm still wiping off the drool from the floor. (which is covered in varioous disgusting things as I haven't mopped it in ages either). My studio, my mess, my dirt. MWahahahah.
Neshuma, your beads are AWESOME!!!!

Betsi Goutal said...

Aha! The mystery beadress reveals herself! ;) Yes, please, open up shop. Fanci's got us all primed and ready, lol.

Sharon Driscoll said...

The UTEE beads are incredible and they do look like Basha beads. Too cool for school. The white ones are my favorites. Is there anyone who didn't know you'd end up back on the floor? LOL It's where you work best and can spread out the treasures....

dawn said...

You are inspiring me to create something awesome with my little hoard of basha beads......these UTEE beads are just lovely....and your blog is just better than ...lemon meringue pie for breakfast! Sunshine on a cloudy day....
