Putting on the Blitz...a listing frenzy
I was feeling kind of listless...
meaning I hadn't listed anything in my shop lately.
Conditions hadn't been all that great for photography...
Besides I'd been busy in the studio and taking you all on tours...
and dealing with my roneriness
This is what happens when I'm sipping bourbon and watching Deadwood in the evening.
Good thing I didn't name them F****ing C*cks***er earrings.
My friend on FB says why bother to put symbols in your swear words, if you have to do that don't even bother to use the word then.
I say F*** Y**! to her
and I didn't want to have to put an adult warning on my blog... so there!
Torch enameled discs turning into earrings
they'll go under my NuministaChic earring category
Put up a boatload of listings in my shop today
These are ultra large
A little of everything
beads all aglow and crusty
This was a *WIP and ReWIP and unWIP and ReWIP
since way last year.
I just couldn't get the buttons to lay right and behave and look good once it was off of the design table.
The copper okra and a few other adjustments finally taught it a lesson and it finally hangs the way I want.
* Work In Progress
While I'm at it I've got another WIP to show you
These are some earrings I started last year. Only thing is the vintage button shank is glass so it may easily break with the headpin going through it. I think I solved that by gluing leather to the back and thusly securing the headpin and the glass to the Chinese coin.
Those were going to be the earrings but then these little torch enameled copper discs showed up on my table.... next to the bourbon
How cool would it be to rivet them to the coin!
But it's a delicate operation probably not suitable for a pounding.
Anvilartifacts suggested a faux rivet.
I like that idea.
