My camera battery died yesterday, hence the lack of update. So, three things today: yesterday's necklace, and two pairs of earrings.

shinies! )

Oh! said the forest

Sterling silver, maybe-moss-agate and serpentine. I honestly have no excuse for these. I was going to put them the other way around, with spiraled endcaps, but then I found myself reaching for the flat headpins and somehow these happened instead. >_> These things happen.

Fairy Windows

Glass and bronze wire, on brass earwires. I love those square beads; should've gotten more of them. They've actually got a sort of milky swirly sheen to them in places, but my camera ate the subtleties in the coloration.

November 10

Glass, enameled copper wire, lock washers. Experimental nonsense that looked much better in my head; I wanted to add some dark red swarovskis to it, but that didn't work out.

Good lord, when did it get to be the tenth. I really, really don't approve. :(

It's looking like I'm going to have to wrestle with school bureaucracy in order to register for classes before the freshmen do; I'm extraordinarily displeased by this, because there are classes that I need to take to graduate, and classes that I desperately want to take, and they're all likely to fill up once the juniors start registering. I emailed the dean this morning, but I still haven't gotten a response. *frustrated, mildly concerned*

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.

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Glass, silver plated wire, and a base metal ship charm. 8 or 9 inches long, depending on where you clasp it; I think I'll pick up some chain tomorrow to make it properly extendable so it isn't quite so long. (Although I confess I don't actually know how long a bracelet should be; I have tiny wrists, and I don't wear bracelets as a rule, anyway- I have a tendency to lose them.)

Very fond of the colors in this one; glad that I have more of these beads. They (and the ones in yesterday's earrings) came from a friend's destashing endeavor, so I have a gigantic bag full of odds and ends and assorted unsorted beadery. I'll have to sort them all eventually, but it's something like three pounds of beads, so the task is a little daunting.

Chrismas Candy

Glass, bronze wire, gold colored earwires. These beads look like delicious, delicious ribbon candy. :)

Silver, swarovski, and some mystery stones. Kind of meh on these, but at least I churned something out; today was an unproductive day all around. (These have been sold.)

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.
