Shop update - rust and ruin

Leia - Tribal Sci Fi earrings - with reclaimed vintage charms and mis-matched beads. I'm really happy with the way the charms came out- they were super shiny so I painted them white enamel and hammered them at the ends, then oxidized where the enamel came off. Reminds me of rusted-out old space ships.


akashic - using reclaimed metal cut from a big thrifted hoop and very subtle labradorite, these earrings represent a step toward making more elements from scratch. And not just the super funky ear wires! You will soon see what my tin snips and I have been up to...


Charon - the two discs on this one are the backs of antique buttons, which when hammered take on a great ruined appearance that I'm enjoying so much I'm now shopping for buttons where the backs matter more than the front!


Epsilon - a really sweet necklace, I had to tear this away from myself! The little wooden ring beads in the chain have such a great hand-carved quality to them, and the blue flash on that Czech bead- wow! I have to get more of them. I'm really into that luminous night sky blue lately.

I know this is wholly inappropriate but......
I just love you. You are so special.
And I love how you "do" white.
