So anyways, final givaway necklace goes to my dear friend Beatnheart! No I'm not cheating, it's just that my friends were the ones that contributed, ya know?
I also wanted to mention that when I posted my little video mini tute, beatnheart commented, "My darling girl speaks!!! And she has messed up hands and nails just like me... And it looks like she uses Ace hardware pliers with a broken spring too! So neat to see that you are a mere mortal..."
Oh my god, how can you not fall in love with her? By the way, those broken Ace hardware pliers are my all time favorites, so yeah. Also, I thought we all agreed to pretend I have perfectly manicured fingertips and never mention it again?
Here's some very random stuff on my work table:
I just thought I should share a photo cuz that's what you come here for and all.
Had fun the other day making a bunch of chain that still needs oxing. Practically broke my hands on that 14 gauge steel though. That was not as fun. Though it's also the results I liked the most, dagnabit.
Here's a bracelet I'm working on. I need to ox everything for the colors to blend and also that one double ring doo-hickey by the hook clasp, I have some glass balls I can fill those indents with, though they got covered in oil lubricant that spilled so I need to wash them but they're tiny clear glass which yeah not fun to wash but so I got a mesh strainer just for that and so but now I can't find it anywhere so but could I actually have thrown it away just as soon as I purchased it for some friggin reason?
Am I proud of that run-on sentence? Yes. Yes I am.
I'm also helping an etsy bud whose first language isn't English to write her very first tute! I'm really enjoying it, it's reminding me of my ol' ESL days, correcting essays back in San Francisco when I taught more advanced students.
Couple new listings:
What else? Oh yeah, Black/Cyber Friday/Monday ridiculousness coming up. So yeah I'm getting in on that mess I guess.
