I'm still on an earring kick, though. I think it's because you can make earrings in a little bitty workspace. You know, like when you still haven't finished unpacking your studio because you're back to making actual jewelry. Like that. So in that tiny little spot of used-to-be-organized-for-one-minute-before-I-started-making-a-mess-again, this is what has been accomplished...
I have had a fun request for some custom bracelets that I've been working on. Not finished with those yet so I'll share them with you another day. This is what I've been up to since last time....
A custom order entitled
Sparkling Stars in the Midnight Rose Garden
here's the full on view
These fit the bill for her request.
Turquoise. Large. Lightweight. Sparkly. Romantic. Roses.
I'm so pleased with how they turned out.
Thank you Tracy! Your roses saved the day!
A few more pairs in my Turkoman Goes Modern series;
Ferns Unfurled Against the Golden Sky
A Letter to my Sweetheart
Fog Over the Moors
just one more......
Rubies in the Rough
And another custom order.......
Very similar to a pair I shared previously, which sold in a fast minute.
These have another style of Petra's lizard scale drops.
They are the coolest drops!
If she makes more, grab them fast because stuff flies out of her shop!
I liked those earrings so much that I also made these...
with Petra's ceramic nails.
These remind me of ancient swords with the fancy handpieces.
For those of you who might be new to my blog,
it's Scorched Earth on Etsy where you can find these great ceramic bits.
Deep in the Tropical Rain Forest
Recycled tin paired with Numinosity Beads headpins and
Scorched Earth ceramic drops with vintage beads.
I'm loving the interplay of colors and textures in these.
the most amazing thing about this,
THESE ARE ALL LISTED!!!!
what?......... yes, you heard right!!
in my shop, as we speak!
Will wonders never cease?!
Nope, not around here, they won't!
and last but not least...
These are not listed, because I just might keep them....
text permanently embedded onto the metal,
adorned with lampwork headpins by Havana Beads.
You know I can't resist black and white,
and black and white headpins.
and scalloped edge metal.
might need to keep these!
We haven't had any adventures to share lately,
but we did have a bit of excitement.
We were unpacking some more out in the garage,
yes, we are STILL unpacking...ugh...
anyway, I look and just over the ridge is this...
no, not a bigfoot...
or a hovercraft...
or a cloud that looked like a penguin
a 4 alarm fire very close by!
You've heard about the draught conditions here in Texas, right?
Well, that day, they said on the news that we had high fire risk because of the winds.
I'm thinking "why does wind increase fire risk?"
hmmm, now I understand exactly what that means.
Sparks from a passing train on a windy day in Texas equals "YIKES"!
That's the roof of our car in the foreground of the picture.
I know, blurry...because in my haste, I forgot to turn macro off. hahahahaha
I forget how to take pictures of anything except jewelry.
You guys understand that, right?
and then there's this exciting little tidbit to share with you.
(because you all know that you read this blog for the excitement factor)
what the second most interesting man in the world likes to do in his down time.
a man of many talents, that one.
he's eating ice cream with chopsticks.
who does that?!
That's all folks!
Short and sweet.
hmmm now what picture to leave you with?......
How about all three?
yup, that's scary!
Yes, that's adorable!
and this is definately thought-provoking.....
