plating

ok so i bought these small white metal casted jewelry charms. they are so cute. little unicorns. and i got it in my head to tha i need them plated. they look like they were in the process of being plated but never got that far. they are vintage and so cute. yay.
i called country beads, coz i bought a gold plated leaf from them, and asked if they do plating services, and the lady suggested acme plating.
so i look online and i find them!

so they dont know how much it will cost but im going to go check some time this or next week :P and see. if it costs more than a hundred dollars im not going to do it. but can you imagine i could get some of my designs made into silver. oooo. i know a lot of ladies would love that :D

meanwhile ive been making stuff and stressing around, you know the usual. its getting sunnier and my pilates tape is getting played.

ive been getting super blah about listing new items and anyway there is a fair on the second. i guess i kind of want to take an etsy break! im working on my new site. im going to have a website! ooooh.

also if i take an etsy break it will give me time to work on all the put off projects for myself. like clothes making and getting new and improved organizational units for my jewelry and sewing areas.

sew along?

omgosh i totally forgot about doing my sewalong project :s
i have been erm, collecting jersey and ribbed knits for a bit a really should learn how to sew them now that its warmer and it might get me more aware of my actual body which i tend to neglect. tops. i want bottoms. things i was supposed to buy with my sudden wealths that end up disappearing into stagnant payment pools:
-dress form or bodice thing. you know, that thing. a vintage one would be too unreal. an adjustable vintage one would be sublime.
-organizational units and my dream of tina in ikea.
-shoe inserts for my flatness in the feet area.
-get my wicked boots heels changed so i dont sound like a horse while walking.
that was fun. how bout heres a list of stuff i really need to get like for seriously:
-nice soap dish for bathroom and kitchen
-new sink rim in bathroom.
gross 'vintage' bacteria infested germ molds of death not cool and is traumatizing me.
-new broom and dustpan
-bucket for mop. gross.
damnit this could turn into one of those never ending lists that will change my life. or at least my surroundings. which will in turn change my life.
ok.
-brush scrubbie for mop attachment thing for walls. hmm. or maybe just brush thing. handheld one. pink. i have these beads that are pink and i dunno kind of weird. they look like they have crap on em. like pus balls. with wax. ew. gross. i did try and used them to make a necklace and its in the bathroom where i left it after wearing it for like 2 minutes. heh.
ok so my list is done. for cleaning! ugh.




new stuff instead.

i went to this crazy bead show downtown in some hotel the other week. it was great and i wished i had more money at the time coz omg i totally spent like everything i had on these beads that look like candy. gah :P these are all vintage german glass from talisman beads. they are online too and have a pretty good inventory online but nothing like coming across a heuge mound of vintage glass beads! i guess they came all the way from maryland?? there were lots of crazy vendors from the states :D


i found country beads there! (they are on west 4th) and they had these delightful roses. this necklace features a real rose encased in glass like resin. so crazy good. the charm is vintage. i had fun watching peoples expressions as they read the phrase in french and made confused faces.

this one features an oxidized brass mesh rose and super sparkle swarovski crystal and a leaf and flower branch :D

this. i love this one. a friend of christie asked me if i could make her a jezebels garden piece and but i temporarily ran out of the smaller creamy roses.. so i ended up coming up with a new design! wow! its stunning. i love it. its got a new color flower cameo center- this time brown instead of the cream, and i replaced the cream rose with a cluster of tiny glass picasso beads. so gorgeous and cute. there are the little specks of brown on the beads and the flower cameo pick up the color wonderfully. i added a leaf charm and made the pice longer with no clasp. its just gorgeous! EDIT: modified version with gold plated seahorse available in shop! click on pics:

then this crazy deal... well ok i need to retake pics coz ideally i have another style with a skull..but this is the classic anchor and compass design! i love it. the compass works perfectly and it rocks! if you like this and want to see the other one before i change the pics let me know and ill move my ass faster.

this simple yet very cool design.. also available in dark olivine green. so cool!

got craft to fab fair

ok woah! the got craft fair was stellar!! woohoo!!! it was totally awesome and rockin table neighbors!!!
of course i am a space cadet to maximum. i thought it started at 11! so the first day i was like almost an hour late. drat!!!! i had donated all these wicked prizes for the fisrt 25 people too :P what a looser! lol. ah, luckily andrea and rob are like the coolest people on earth! and didnt freak out on my like i did to myself ! heh. also of course i forgot the effin camera, again, both days!
i sold quite a bit of stuff...but this fair i had all the pieces priced (which i usually dont) and i was wondering if that made people hesitate on going off just picking things up and saying 'ill take it' i love those words :D
i have another fair coming up in a couple weeks. the fab fair at the heritage hall. EDIT: its on June 2 ! one day only!
lots of new designs in shop too! go go go check it out wicked and wild child style!
