|Radiant Sun - salvage metal and faceted Czech bead earrings
In addition to re-discovering I've been working with a lot of hammered metal lately. Quite a while ago I obtained for myself a small anvil and a hammer, and once you do that a whole world opens up and you start looking at every metal thing around you thinking 'can I smash it with a hammer?'
Recently I've discovered smashing Indian bangles, and Savers gave up a massive haul yesterday that intend to use (mostly) for earrings.
Dark purple and gold glitter for opulent opium den styles, wire-thin silver ones for savage barbarians, gold pierced mesh for 80s glam warriors, and pastel sherbet shades for my bridal range, which you'll hear about later.
I'm trying to get back to Livejournal- I do miss being here, those of you who know my personal journal know I have a habit of updating every 6 months promising my sudden return, only to disappear once again. I'm going to try not to do that any more. Though I have to say updating in the LJ code is a pain in the rear parts- all my images need re-sizing, rich text makes code all wonky...it would be so easy if I could just import my whole post from Blogger!
