Like these bracelets using beach glass from a bottle so the curve would lay against the wrist.
The glass for these was gifted to me by darliciousrejuvenations, isn't she lovely?
Above a chunky version with super old African beads from Patroness.
And I'm working on this one next, though I got sick of making the wound wire bits so lets see when I get my ass to finish it.
Speaking of assemblage bracelets, I'm in love with this one- isn't it cute?
I took out the ugly plastic kuchi cabs and added my own enamel gunk mix.
Necklace in pink!
That hook was actually a broken finding of basically a big ring soldered on to a little one. I twisted the big ring a bit, little hammering, voi-la.
Really enjoying little clusters of thing. They take on their own semblance of meaning, which is what the title means.
Yes, I'm also quite happy with this bunch of titles, go to the shop if you're curious.
You can see I bailed a lot of rough stones in my Cosmic Rocks technique, they're popping up all over.
Here's some beads I shared on Instagram. I made these polies with teeny nail decals!
I have more to try out but you know how it is- too busy making shit to have time to make shit.
Some of my polies appear in this chunky chunk as well.
I'm counting and there are FIVE gifts in this piece as well. Wait. SIX!!!!! Oh shit no SEVEN. OMG.
kathy = FrenchSentiments
triballis = I misspelled it here. tribalis
emmanuelle = (misspelled, the shame) CreationsAsh, on vacay mode right now.
Claudia = she'll soon have a shop up.
omg I forgot = please forgive me! people send me things under their real names, they chat under etsy pseudonyms, a gal gets easily confused.
But the links above, if you haven't visited, I can't recommend enough. Not to mention shipwreckdandy for all the help and inspiration in my poly creation.
A Tiger in Me.
A gorgeous ten peso coin from Uruguay with a touch of solder top and bottom for connections. This isn't even vintage, I just ox'ed it and it looks friggin' awesome.
The druzy culster was also from Uruguay, I oxed the electroplated rim.
And guess where this baby's from? That's right! Uganda! Oh wait no...
But the chain I put together from bits of old broken kuchi bracelets. And I made that ring out of unneeded keyring and lots of solder. In fact, it was one of you lovely ladies that commented to say the key to getting good solder globs was to use tons of flux. I can't thank you enough!
I made one like this before.
Y'all, texting has spoiled me, I'm finding keyboard typing awkward and fraught with misspellings.
As I was torching this for patina, I ended up annealing the metal and idk... is it too mushy? I don't mean mushy looking, I like that. I mean actually mushy...
I've been having fun with my sea urchin spines and some of the stuff linda sent that I shared earlier. I really liked how the flip flop asymmetry worked on these.
Another asymmetry- a rough colorless amethyst mismatched with a poly drop of my own. I actually had two of these poly drops but I just really liked this pairing.
He'll Make You Shine.
Look at these! More Uruguayan amethyst set in salvaged tin with composite gold leaf and this awesome cording!!! Which I still have to wax actually if I don't want a fuzzy mess. I did something here a bit different- I didn't ox the wires. Not even noticeable, idk. Me and my ox obsession.
Even made this second pair I haven't listed yet.
Even made this second stack which I haven't yet listed.
