Long Time No Post

I've been a bit busy...that's an understatement actually, I've been incredibly busy!
I finally moved into my new house, so I have a wonderful craft room that I've been filling to the brim with all my crafty things from my old house's tiny closet. Isn't it funny how no matter how much space you have, your crafts seem to expand to fill said space? Yeah, I'm having that problem...Though it's both a blessing and a curse :)

I am posting more and more items by the week, and starting to really get into making more intricate things. I'm especially excited to be starting metal and stamping work in the next month or so. Antiquing metals and working with solder is fascinating to me. I'm so inspired by work that is intricate and using things like that.
These wedding bands below are by Etsy artist fabuluster. The duo who create these rings are just amazing. Having an original idea like that just makes me so in awe. Anyway, enough geeking.

Here's a picture of one of my newest pieces, which I fondly like to call Parijat, the coral Princess.. I'm experimenting with new textures, colors and 'flavors' in jewelry, so everything in my Etsy is a bit...eclectic right now to say the least.
A lot of people I've noticed have a cohesive theme going on with their shops. I'm not sure if I'll ever have that, but I'm not sure I'd want to either. I really enjoy exploring new ideas and ways to make beautiful wearable art.

There's more new items at my Etsy, so feel free to browse and offer your opinions on them, I love feedback, and constructive criticism!

Hope you have a fabulous start to February coming up here soon!
