I question whether this is something to get excited about or not, but dang it, I am excited anyway!
I have been INSPIRED in the studio this afternoon, I've got fabric in the dryer, getting ready to cut for a cute summer blouse.
Cute I tell you!
AND I was just hit with the lightening bolt of divine inspiration.
I have SO many antlers in my home. So many.
I have got my cross sections for my Antler Rings and I want to save a set for a hat/coat rack in the future(I haven't sorted out the best way to mount them yet)
And I have this picture that I have had on my (super sparse at the moment) inspiration board- this could be why I've been a bit of a slow poke in here for the last little while! Must amend this.
Anyway, I've had this picture on my board for AGES of a woman wearing a HUGE horn pendant.
That I love.
Obviously, look at all my capitol letters.
So I came up with this.
(please forgive me my overexposed, slightly blurry photos, I got caught up in the excitement!)
I'm going for something sophisticated and clean, I didn't want to over embellish it at all. I think the silver vertebrae is all it really needs.
I might try it on a hammered GOLD circle though.
I was originally thinking of wrapping gold wire around and around the top of the antler tip, with semiprecious stones thrown in for good measure.
Which I still might try.
And I still need to figure out how to solder/join the hammered silver circle without burning the heck out of the antler.
But I like it.
I think I know someone else who might like it too, who might have to get one for her birthday that I didn't even know happened last week.
Yeah you Erin.
In other 100th post news;
I've been working on new scrap Leather Feather Earrings.
That are cute as hell.
This is just one of them, but the camera's batteries died and I haven't bothered to switch them for new ones yet.
But they're pretty cute right?
And we've had the strangest, coolest weather the last couple of days.
Last weekend it was 18 degrees out and I got to wear SANDALS for the first time since last September.
It was awesome.
This weekend we got an Arctic freeze attack.
Check out the size of this hail!
I think that this is enough posting for one day.
(I know, 2 in one day seems a little much. What SHOULD I be doing is the question to ask yourselves.)
Work on jewellery is the answer!
Oh yeah! I nearly forgot.
We got into Out of Hand again.
