The convention was fun and it is always refreshing to get away from the studio, but I have started back so recently on jewelry-making, I am still fired up and want to keep working…the heck with networking, the heck with the computer (that makes my husband’s mouth open in shock, believe me), the heck with sleeping and eating and such. It is true that when you do what you love, one doesn’t want to stop and one wakes up not being able to wait to do what they love. With me, it has been a similar experience except that I work late into the night and weirdly need much less sleep than usual…four hours can do me just fine and I can do that for days. Strange, but that might be my gothy nature peeking out.
I wasn’t able to begin any new projects this week, but have put up some pieces that escaped previewing last week. Here you will find more diachroics and a spiderweb-like necklace…my journey into the realm of asymmetrical design.
|Spiderweb Necklace – 14k gold and crystal. $49.95.|
|Diachroic earrings – Blood Red – $19.95||Diachroic earrings – Powder Blue – $19.95|
|Diachroic earrings – Purple – $19.95||Diachroic earrings – Turquoise Green – $19.95|
|Still working on the “special new product”. The prototype is proving to be a challenge and while one version was worked out, the further work on it needs tweaking. It is slow going as I have to work on it inbetween the regular work of redesigning old product, coming up with new and sprinkling it across the ‘net like fairy dust. Still, it is exciting enough that enthusiasm for its premiere makes me attack the project with constantly renewing determination. I won’t rest until it is done!|
One of my favorite designs that everyone loves, is the Pixie Faerie line. I started with the earcuff, then someone wanted it in a cell phone charm and then another person wanted it in a necklace. This necklace is an improvement on that older design using more beautiful swarovski crystals I have discovered in recent years. If people ask for it, I will also do them in silver.
|Pixie Faerie Necklace – $23.95||Pixie Faerie Earcuff – $21.95|

|Lamplight Roses – Yellow – $16.95||Lamplight Roses – Spring Green – $16.95|
|Next week’s update might be jeopardized by the fact that my husband and I are going to San Diego Comic Con for the weekend and it will rob me of the chance to do more pieces. I will try my best to get something out for then. There is still so much to get back online…my little black leather cell phone/iPod bags, our amazing Goth Stockings and our new special project I cannot divulge yet. Here’s hoping I won’t come back too braindead to work on more goodies for you.|
