The Upside of Obsession

Is that I have even more fabulous stuff to show you. Well, I like it a good bit. Most of it works in progress on ideas being refined, but it's really coming along some of it. Let me know what you think.

First of all, here is a local color shot of Lily with her Pop Pop.

And here is my second try at haberdasherical adornment, and it is going to Nashville, because Herb was the first person to admire the last one.

And here, after much debate, mailbox checking and general bellyaching are the star wars jewelry demos. I know the earrings are not exactly symmetrical, the others will be, I made these on the fly. But the ear wires are sterling silver. It is very easy to get a good amount of these anonymous characters (there are eight or so uniformed guys in one package) and I think as matched sets, they make good earrings. Thoughts on the accompanying beadwork are appreciated. More? Less? Chandelier style pieces with jawas and stormtroopers and tusken raiders all battling it out? Moving on...

Here it is, the piece de resistance, Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you, the Star Wars Charm Bracelet. It's possible I forgot to mention it, but the earrings are available to anyone willing to hand out my business card to anyone who seems interested. Which will come in handy when I get my website up. I require sleep. Y'all take care.

The bracelet is cute. I'd maybe go a few less beads on the earrings. Just one bead per guy maybe?

But yeah, they turned out good. Good work.

What is that embroidered on the tie? I can't quite make it out.

Wow, you are being a busy crafter! The charm bracelet is especially cool.

P.S. It looks like you've lost some weight in the other pics. i.e. You look great!
