These earrings and plenty more are up in Sparrow Salvage, with more still coming in the next couple of days.
I've also finally written my About page over on Fagin's Daughter, and I've given the shop it's own blog! If you like being updated with all the delicious antique things I list there then you'll want to follow that blog, where I'll be showing you things I pick up that are of a vintage/antique/junk nature- sort of a sneak peek deal.
The pieces going up in Star Tribe will be more raw, more bold and more arcane than the Sparrow Salvage stuff; Sparrow is going back to her roots a little to Victorian tribal assemblage. This time without the black bleak that once hung over- now it is more colour and light. That's just fancy talk for 'junk stuck to other junk'. My new found sense of creative fire is indiscriminate of late, I just pick up the closest thing to me and make something, without spending an eon debating if it's really what I want to make. At the end of the day what I really want is to be able to make a living off this jewelry lark, and this is the year (albiet late in proceedings) where I intend to give that a bloody good go. Lately I've felt I treat my work as something that lays between a stale hobby and a apathetic dabbling. No more! I said way back in January that this was the year of the Sparrow, and gaddunnit- I mean it!
