I’ve worn some really cute outfits since my last post, but instead of taking pictures of them and blogging about my day, I’ve been hiding in my garage for the past week making necklaces… and listening to Adele’s “Someone Like You” on infinite loop while doing so (it’s the most beautiful form of torture, but I don’t know why I did that to myself because it gave me a major emo). I’m hoping to open my Etsy shop, Once Upon a Smorgasbord…, sometime in November. I want at least 10 items done to put up for sale before I officially open it. And when I do, I will have my first give-away here on Le Fancy Geek! So stay tuned for that. 😀
I’m growing a bit too attached this Bambi necklace I just completed the other night. That’s the tricky part in making things — you become so fond of your creations that you don’t want to part with them at all. AH!
Here are some of my other finished pieces:
The Sleeping Beauty/Briar Rose, Peter Pan and Degas necklaces are all the same length, and much longer than the Bambi and Alice in Wonderland ones, which have lobster clasps. I have yet to measure either though — my jewelry making method is somewhat weird as I just put things around my neck and say, “Hmm, well I think that’s a good length” or compare them to necklaces that I already have, and just go from there. I also made it so that the pendants don’t swing around, so when you wear it you don’t have to constantly adjust it when it goes crooked (’cause my shit ain’t crooked). 🙂
Most of my stuff is Disney for now since I have a lot of random Disney images lying around, but I swear my stuff will be more than just Disney!<– but it’s not like too much Disney is a bad thing either. 😛
