So yeah I got sick AGAIN. But I've also been away because I've been working on a -gasp- tute! Fo' realz. Check it:
Another pair with these tiny number plaques.
These are supposed to be earring pairs but when I started thinking about the cover pic, I was wondering about making some really extravagant necklaces sorta how the Cosmic Rocks projects were all presented in necklace form on the cover page for some eye-grabbage.
Here I was even considering a sorta center piece for all the charms to be connected to. But now I'm not loving it, idk.
I've also got a new baby in the studio:
It still took several times longer than I'd have wished and I tore through a couple bits but that's to be expected.
I've taken a few extra minutes to make some little earrings:
Lots of special bits from all over.
And a little pendant with matchbox label and mica.
And as usual I have a ton of half-made things floating around and more ideas than I can ever even begin to hope to turn into reality...
Plus I need another work table in my life, mine's way too crowded. Anyone wanna bring a table over to my house and just put it into my studio for me? Blah, y'all useless!
Oh but not that useless as I've gotten some ideas on tute names here and in convos. Thanks to commenter Cindy L and etsybud Claudia I'm thinking something along the lines of "Starry Shards: Iridescent Soldered Beach Glass Charms, a PDF Tutorial."
*jumps around in glee*
