Jewelry Geeks

September 15, 2008

My latest online social networking experiment: JewelryGeeks.comThis one, I think, applies especially to me, because not only am I both a jeweler and a geek, I’m also a geek for jewelry, or jeweling (we usually like to call that metalsmithing, but I’ll let it slip this one time) Take a look at my profile here.

There’s monster on my pants!

September 10, 2008

I’m not usually one who goes gaga over baby things, but I have to say, these monster pants by Joeyandaleethea are pretty kickin’. If I happened to still be a kid, I’d totally wear some. But maybe that’s just because I’ve always had a thing for interesting pants.

Green happens to be one of my favorite colors, which is why I’m always delighted when I can get that perfect metallic green color in the process of oxidizing my jewelry. Try as I might, I can never get the silver to turn those colors on purpose, only by accident. As an added bonus, the […]

Workshop style

August 29, 2008

If I were a horse-back traveling metalsmith, these belt pouches would be my tool kit. No clunky plastic boxes for me – everything I’d need would fit into two hardy leather pouches on either hip. In a post-apocalyptic world, I’d be awesome, all thanks to Rubyzaar.

I’m a big fan of piggy banks. I’ve kept one for years, and recently when it was full used it to buy tools to start my business. They’re pretty useful critters, I just wish they’d fill up faster. Pig-ment – a rainbow colored piggy bank created by Starless, is just the kind of piggy bank […]

Mademoiselle G

August 19, 2008

Earlier I was browsing Indiepublic and I happened to find a very interesting painter who is a Canadian living in Belgium. Her work is very surreal and odd and I can’t stop looking at it. She has a shop on Dawanda, or you can see her blog, which is mostly written in French. Either way, […]

Drama Bomb

August 14, 2008

I must say that I think this flourite crystal necklace by TulipsTreasureBox is quite stunning. The crystals are graduated so that the longest are in the center, which reminds me of an Egyptian Pharaohs pectoral neckpiece. I can only imagine how dramatic wearing it must feel. You could be Cleopatra, or a movie star. Definitely […]
