Green and Royal Blue. The Asymmetrical Midnight Spiral Goddess Earcuff and Earring Set and it’s matching earrings were absolute joys to make, rich with these “oil-slick” like colors. Their iridescence is hypnotic – I could make jewelry from these colors all day and never get bored of them. Their otherworldly glow extends even to tarot bag fabrics, which I can never seem to leave in the fabric stores when the catch my attention. But by far, of the ones to add to the store that give me a shiver of excitement and purest burst of love are the Dragonfly Priestess Series. Copper, dragonflies and swarovski crystals made these simple, little designs so magickal for me, I can scarcely form the words for how they touch me. Read their story in the store listing – they were truly made with the purest love for the art of jewelry-making I could ever express.
It’ll be hard to sell this one. It’s turning out really pretty. The yarn is French Muench and matched the beadwork I did down the sides perfectly even though the beadwork was done two years ago and I bought the yarn last year and from a completely different place. Despite the itchy look of the yarn, it is surprisingly soft! Next I’m doing an inner lining, then weaving the strap.
There is one last piece to upload this week…a new variation on the Egyptian Ankh earcuff. It is resisting photgraphing, but I’ll get that little bugger next week.
