Avalon - amethyst earrings- so pretty and simple, I'm thinking of making another pair! I've had these stampings for ages and never really 'vibed' with them, of course after I smashed them with the hammer and cut them in half and aged them and sanded them back, we got along much better. :D
Rings of Akathros - rock crystal rock n roll! There's some serious tribal sci-fi happening in these babies- wish I could make a few of these but the long twisty bits came from the thrift, so I'm unlikely to find more. Sad face.
These are simple and super rustic - bones of the ancients - it's getting really hard to find decent Tibetan bone beads now, most ones available seem new made for the craft market and therefore not quite as grungy.
I appear to be on a bit of an earring festival this week- I'm tinkering with bracelets as well and I have some cuffs I want to finish, but necklaces seem to elude me. For some strange reason there's so much energy required to work a necklace- nothing I come up with sits quite right. But hey whatever- everyone loves earrings!
Tunisia - hammered metal hoops with the most amazing raw amethyst flints. I love how the purple of the amethyst enriches the orange on the metal- and then that little flash of real gold..!
And then there are these babies! Woodstock! I love these, I wish my neck were longer so I can wear them. The huge discs of shell came from the thrift, hopefully I can hunt down some more.
