Dragonflies and Steampunk

 These are a few of my newest pieces. I love dragonflies and I used several in this new batch of necklaces.

 I love the little tiny bottles and it lets me use all of the little stems and hands from the watches I take apart.





 This piece is very deceiving in the picture...It's actually only about as big as a nickle!




I love it when I find cool old pieces of metal like this old hotel tag.
 






This piece has a magnifying glass front that is also iridescent! I love the purple and yellow colors that come through.





Now that I have some more jewelry in stock I can work on my homemade soap!

Steampunk Jewelry and Industrial Chic Jewelry

I have been working like mad getting some new pieces done for several upcoming shows and also for my ETSY store. Here are a few pics of some of the new pieces.

A couple of current projects and some exciting news!



I have been so busy that I didn't even realize it's been over TWO MONTHS since my last post! Here are a couple of projects I've been working on. The first is my homemade soap. I'm a beginner soapier so I am still learning the craft. I was pretty happy with these soaps though! The top pic is red apple (pink and white soap) and Vanilla bean ( brown soap)


This is my sunny herb garden soap


and this is my lilac soap
 



I have also been working on a few new pieces of Steampunk Jewelry. I had a commission for some  cuff links and tie pin/tack so I made a few more for up coming craft fairs.







And now my news! After working 4 jobs (3 part time) I am quitting my main job and will only be working 3 days a week giving me lots of time to make new things and go to craft shows! I am so excited to slow down and spend more time crafting and painting! I hope to post more often on my blog and to also join more ATC swaps now that I will have more time :O)
