Yep, it's time for another Extra shop update. It seems that lately this blog has turned into nothing more than an Extra shop update preview. I really need to do something about that. And I really need to make some of my own jewelry. I miss it. Soon.
Anyhoo... I have some real humdingers for you this week!
Birds, anyone? I've been asked to make these birds for a long, looooooong time. So here they be. Wings and all.
I did something that has been in the back of my mind for while. I live in an 1870's Victorian house and this is what my downstairs door knobs look like. (Yep, there are different, slightly less fancy door knobs upstairs...) So, I made....
...these shards using the door knob for the impression. I love how they turned out.
One of the many things I just love about Victorian architecture is how they felt the need to make even hidden things beautiful. Take this door hinge, for example. I think I lived in my house for about three years before I discovered the secrets these hinges were keeping.
The shards I made from the hinge design have a decidedly Steampunk feel complete with screws and a pebbled texture.
These little guys will be sold in matching sets. Perfect for earrings or to use as connectors or links.
These are a little unusual, I will admit. Not sure what I had in mind when I put a line of holes going up the center (see the flipped piece).... I think was imagining lacing cord or wire in and out of the holes. Can't wait to see what some of you come up with!
Lastly I have these sweet little vintage tattoo inspired LOVE charms. Freaking cute, eh?
The update will start tomorrow, Wednesday, at noon EST, in the shop. And just to let everyone know, I do read all your comments and I am aware that it is very hard for some of you to shop at the times I usually do my updates. I am trying to come up with a way to make sure that everyone has a chance to get what they want. If I could make more pieces, I would, but as it is I am working at full capacity. It's just me doing what I do, no one else, so please bear with me as I try to make enough for everyone. I'll work out a solution, just give me a little time to think up a plan... :)
