It’s been so long since my last blog entry, and I feel a bit guilty. I created a tumblr account, and am posting a bit on there.
I also have a new etsy store!
The last stretch of October was an eventful one!
The pumpkin lights courtesy of my mother.
I dropped off this little guy off this morning to be cast in brass. We will see how it looks a few days from now!
I’ve been working on a daily photoshop project for the dinosaw charm the whole month of October. It was definitely a trial, but it made me a bit faster with the photoshop.
Here are my favorites;)
This weekend, we went on a very short trip to my grandparent’s campsite for a little campfire, and chitchat. We ended up helping with a little bit of the yard work, blowing leaves from the hillside. I’m feeling the symptoms of a cold, which I don’t know if it is due to an actual cold, or because I was blowing around dirt and leaves for an hour activating my sinuses… Either way it was a fun trip.
We went grocery shopping too! My main goal was to get a pumpkin to carve.
This guy was keeping an eye on the neighborhood last night.
Yummy curry, and salt pumpkin seeds!
Fun bracelets I made for the store! They are $15 each;)
Wax castings! The past few weeks have been a busy one! The leaf ring was cast in sterling, and the small mountain ridge ring was cast in brass. I love the way the brass looks.
2nd class of wax carving class was last night. I finished the first ring, and there will be a sterling casting of it to post next week!
Here’s what it looked like in wax.
Here is what I’ll be working on next (hopefully).
It’s a pendant project, but I’ve wanted to make something like this for a while. If I manage to make it, I’ll wear it all the time! My favorite part is the idea of being able to change the photo/art in the frame.
I'm feeling a lot better this morning! Last night after a whole day of being incapacitated, I started making jewelry... I'm also very excited about the wax carving class that I'll be taking for the next six weeks! I'm taking it at Fitzgerald jewelry school, and it starts this evening. These are one of my favorite things in the world! They're tiny brass figurines with such character, and I've tried to find out more about them (with not much luck). I'll never get to be as good at carving wax like these tiny folks, but I can dream!
I love fall, and at the same time it means I am bound to get a cold eventually. What I didn’t realize was just how fast I’d get sick! I think the sudden change of weather maybe helped a bit too.
Either way, I have been trying with a little help from Theraflu to knock it out!
I’ve been putting whipped cream on top, which makes anything better(especially Theraflu). Try it, it made the lemon flavor smell and taste like lemon custard pie!
I’ve been having fun making things lately!
Here are some brooches in progress.
Here is Mr. Chester C. Charlston.
I made him from scrap fabric, and he protects a thumb drive that contains music that we have been sending back and forth with friends.
Here’s Mr. Charlston without the instagram app.
Well, the storm came and went, and luckily it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
I photoshoped the image above just for the occasion, for the Dinosaw series.
Here’s a link to the facebook page, dedicated to a great charm that is sold at Brooklyn Charm.
I’m planning on a 31 days of Halloween, with 31 different costumes for him. Become a fan on the facebook page to see more in the future!
Also, my boyfriend and I participated in a fun musical project where we sang and recorded a bit for a collaborative project on a song about Irene.
Here’s the link if you would like to give it a listen. John DeLore has a wonderful new album out, so definitely check it out!
