this is such a cute owl locket necklace. i have oxidized the wicked brass box chain, locket and mini owl to a perfect antique finish.

cameo lockets with gemstones! so pretty and feminine without being too girly.
this one features a vintage blue roses cameo and blue amazonite gemstone beads.

this one has the sweetest vintage holly hobbie cameo and green adventurine gemstone beads...

then i made these double set vintage postage stamp necklaces. i think they are so nice. the illustrations on the stamps are perfect. these are all one of a kind. the stamps are encased in a vintage beveled plastic.

this one is of a green viking type ship stamp, and i have added a vintage mini locket which i affixed a skull and a brass sailboat charm. the charms have been hand oxidized for a nice antique finish.

this ones got this weird character that looks wicked. i thought its red and green colors were appropriate for the up coming christmas season gift ideas.

this ones a lovely peachy princess wishing at a well...

then there is this set of 3 beaded vintage cameo pieces. i used Czech Renaissance beads. the beads are gorgeous and have a lovely luster to them.
this one is of a lady in waiting... pinkish rose gold beads

here the lady found a gent and they chat about oh dogs and poems and plays and parties, the girl loves it...
the color if the beads are this darkish greenish blueis with a luster and some kind of mottled spots...

here they are already in a loving embrace, or rather the dude is all up on her..
here the beads are purple but look bronze due to the luster, such a nice sheen...

displays and a halloween pic

um, the fair last was completely terrible. i think i made negative 40 bucks. WTF and i was all ooohhh!!!! i got into portobello west! lame. if i get accepted to do the other shows i think i will just say no, thanks, really id rather save my money... but!! gosh did i go off making lots of really nice stuff and crazy displays. it was the whole allure of being a 'big deal' kind of fair, but there were more people that came to buy stuff at the blim and gotcraft fairs...but hey, i bought a little shelfie thingy for my bags even... much better...
pics of my table and some of the displays i made out of foamcore and lace paper:

and here are the back sides:

alvaro came and helped me all week that week, and he even came to the fair and styed with me all day. its just too bad it was such a bad day to make money. so tired afterwards and so disappointed.

alvaros costume for halloween. we bought it from noel, yuriko from blims husband, one fair day ;D no good pics of my costume. i think i look kinda lame so ill pass on posting. i dressed as a victorian/steam punk mad scientist.
