I went on a bit of a jewelry making rampage this past weekend- I tried out a new style of wire-bendy-y earrings, and they're a great deal of fun to make. Uploaded a bunch of pictures of things to flickr.

Also! I've put a pair up for auction over at [ profile] con_or_bust! And there's a lot of neat stuff up for auction over there, if you happen to not be enticed by my awesomesauce earrings. (Okay, I think they're awesomesauce, at least.) Go! Look! Bid! And Con or Bust just announced they're branching out into helping people of color attend any con, not just Wiscon, which is also pretty awesomesauce.

And speaking of things that are awesome, you know what's exciting for me? The fact that it won't be February anymore in about half an hour. I am so done with this month, y'all have no idea.

I love it when a plan comes together

Glass and various metals and the sound of cars exploding, faintly, in the distance, and the smell of cigar smoke.

...I have absolutely no idea why these earrings make me think of The A Team. I'm just gonna go with it, though; it's just not worth the effort arguing with my subconscious.

In retrospect, maybe I should've tried to make something Guy Fawkes-y or V for Vendetta-ish today, but man, I am in such a blaaaargley kind of mood right now.

These earrings are pleasantly spring-like, instead. (Crappy picture is crappy and taken over the kitchen table, alas.)

November 5

Glass and sterling silver; these are more beads from my recent trip out to Pennington (like yesterday's ammonite beads), and I adore them. And speaking of beads that I adore, I got my Beads of the Month package for October today, full of nifty fossilized things like pieces of dinosaur bone (!!!!) and petrified wood. Am excited.

I got a little bit carried away today. Two pieces! (Technically three but I forgot to photograph one of them so it'll get put up later.) One of which is a necklace! I've never successfully made a necklace before!

Shiny things! )

I need to find a better photography set up; right now I'm relying on a single full spectrum lamp that shines at a really awkward angle for picture taking. It's certainly better than the alternative, which would be relying on the insufficient incandescent lights around my worktable, but I'm not exactly pleased with any of the pictures I've taken this month. I'll have to do proper pictures of things at the end of the month, I guess. Photography has never been my strong suit, so this, too, is a learning experience.

I think I may start having the problem where I spend too much time at my work table. >_> Two pieces today:

November 2

To go with yesterday's pendant, lampwork glass and sterling silver (not silver plated) wire. (These have been sold.)

Blood in the Gears

Zinc alloy lock washers, enameled copper wire, and swarovski crystals. I imagine I'll be making a whole bunch of similar looking gear-y earrings this month.

Pretty much everything I make is up for grabs (including all the stuff that's already up on my flickr) so, uh. If you see anything you like, let me know. Pricing is sort of on a "what are you willing to pay me?" scale, and I'm more than happy to barter.
