Remember how I said that I might just make some red and pink and heart jewelry in time for Valentine's day?
I actually did!
And I discovered some new wirewrapping techniques, too. The first three pages of the Shoppe are all new items. I'm sorry for two "hey, look at all my jewelry!" posts in one week, but I'm fairly proud of some of these new designs!
I'm also offering free shipping until Feb. 14th. Order today to get guarenteed arrival before or on Valentine's day! (After today the only way you can be sure that it will arrive in time is to pay extra for Priority mail-- the free shipping applies to USPS first class only.) Use the code HAPPYSTVALENTINESDAY22012 at checkout.
P.S. I'm disabling Anonymous comments. I've been getting a ton of spammy comments and it's just too much headache to delete them.
OK, so I am majorly proud of this one. It's definately the hardest wirewrapping I've done yet-- and believe it or not, attaching the freshwater pearls was even harder than connecting all the copper components. It's just that there are so many beads in such a small place that my plier's didn't want to squeeze in there.
Ah, so you noticed that this one isn't Valentine's themed? *grumbles* Why did you have to notice?
This is another wirerwrapped pendant... and I am, again, SO EXCITED THAT IT WORKED AND NOW I KNOW HOW TO DO THIS FANCY SINUSOIDAL/ELVEN/ART-NOUVEAU WIREWRAPPING TECHNIQUE! *bounces off walls*
I'm calling this one Imladris after the Sindarian name for Rivendell. (Sindarian in the colloquial Elven language. And if you have to ask what I am talking about... you shouldn't be reading this blog. You should be grabbing a copy of the Lord of the Rings and reading it voraciously).
Anyways, I am typing this up in my few moments before the school day, so I don't have time to write fun little stories about each of these peices. Enjoy, and click the photos to see more pictures of each piece.
