I'm loving this bracelet I made. I've been thinking about making some kind of really great hinges for quite a while now, & I am so pleased that the first thing I tried seems just perfect. I can barely begin to describe how wonderfully sound these hinges are. I have a vintage hinged Mexico bracelet I showed a while ago, from my grandmother, and I consider its hinges the thing to shoot for. You can hold it from the clasp and it stands straight up in the air; you can get it to slowly unfold, component by component, perfect hinge by perfect hinge, as you move your hand just so. It's 'elegant,' in the cosmic sense, in a jewelry sort of way.
And this simple macrame knotting between wire components does the same thing. You can fold it like an accordian; it's perfectly tight while being perfectly limber.
It stands up! Macrame is magic. Lots of possibilities with this technique. I'm really into this bracelet, but I think I'll be listing it after all. It feels really good to wear though. We'll see.
This necklace is listed.
New bracelet too.
These have been listed a while. I used the varieties option to list them. I question its usefulness. THere is no way for someone to select two of them. I wonder if I used it correctly though.
Some drilled cab earrings.
Assemblage earrings with 2 types of vintage buttons.
Converted clip ons. It's the kind of thing I've noticed that people say makes them feel like they cheated making them, because all I did was clip, file, and attach hooks. But I don't feel cheaty. They are so pretty. Almost kept them.
I'll also have lots of new supplies/beads listed in my supply shop super soon! Go see!
