They were what the burnt nuts were supposed to be:
I mean they're from the same batch, just cooked a 100 degrees lower. Now lets look again.
Again, and this time check out the micro-striations.
And once again just cuz I'm so proud. And it's my damned blog.
Phew. Now I'm working on a bunch inspired by ancient mosaic coral.
Made some simple earrings with my own beads. I feel like I can go simple when it's beads I made.
I also did my cosmic rocks treatment on these little amethyst bits.
One with a cap and one on its own cuz I'm complicated and deep.
More with my beads.
This pair I couldn't for the life of me get a single shot of with the polybead and the dangly part both in focus at the same time.
Drivin' me nuts. So here you go, three pictures.
Same problem with these with chunkies by RaggedRobyn.
You guys, the other night I slept 11 hours. And if that's not enough, it's like it made my meds re-set and somehow I was going through withdrawal from them. And crying from so many feels. Just general feels of feelingness. And little things like the fact my stupid printer is broken were really overwhelming.
Anyways, it sucked. I made these because people keep asking if I can re-make those caged pearl earrings from before.
So I did.
But I added more than just pearls cuz why not. And then like here the bottoms of the cage bars I didn't make into regular ball pins, I sorta solderd them flat against the tin.
I made these grey green ones too.
Like putting thin plastic sheeting in my printer which wraps itself so tightly around the inner-most roller that none of my fiddly skills cal get it out, thus rendering the printer useless.
Oh I had a cool crystal and base and I brought them together with some epoxy putty.
Which I darkened a touch with alcohol ink.
Another necklace inspired by my cluster brooches.
That's right, I inspire my own self. (I guess I should say "in the same vein as..")
