Toot toot! Update train!
Trying out a new background, I felt the other one was a little too heavy for the stuff I've been doing lately- needed more light and softness.
Is this boring? I feel like it is, it's all update posts here lately, I should be showing you works in progress.Thing is though, I've not been doing anything WIP that's blog-worthy. I know you all probably think these pieces are brilliant -and I want you to! I mean they're nice n all, but the fact of the matter is I've been churning this stuff out cause I don't have to think about it. It's just pretty trinkets.
I just find some bits that work with each other and do it- I don't fuss, I don't meditate, I don't umm and ahhh and wait what if there's something better... I just make it. Which is nice really, it's nowhere near as draining as usual, and it fills up the shop a bit too, since I've less than 50 items in there (apparently 80-100 is the ideal).
(love the crushed look of these, like gold jewelry from Pharaoh's tombs.)
The pieces that I make with all the fuss and bother and thinkin' are still hibernating in their tins, all gigantic and meaningful. I'm still stewing - it's a complex recipe of theories in there *taps head*
Man, I had no idea how many things I updated and hadn't shown you...
I'm such a slack blogger. Too busy making things, it would seem!
Earrings earring earrings- quick, easy, fun. Necklaces are so complex- why?! I mean you have to make two the same (well nearly) when you make earrings, why is that easier than a necklace? Weirdo.
Neolithica - these are really sweet, very simple but the shell bits are so perfect, I just wanted a little framework like you'd see in a museum.
There's this too- a cuff!
A trip down memory lane style wise, it was a custom order for a lovely girl who missed my Dickens style. Does everyone else miss that too? I don't like working with the darker colours lately but I enjoyed this one, getting back to that old way of nesting rags. I made a couple more cuffs, they should be in the next update. I tried to go for something different- this 'old cottage' vibe I'm going on.
Okay that's enough- there might be more, I lost track of what's already been blogged.
I'm in a strange mood today- I feel dull and unfulfilled, but not sad. It's a good feeling though, probably- when I find myself feeling like everything is rubbish, that usually means I'm ready for more than what I have, and that's motivational for me to go get more. Or it could just mean my expectations of myself are far too high. OMG FEELINGS
