Hi guys!  So I've been busy this week, and have made a bunch of new creations I'd love to share. 

Quartz and spent bullet casing on brass ball chain...

Broken mirror on ivory and navy leather - Tornado!

"Vaseline Glass" or Uranium beads - Vaseline Sunrise
(Uranium glows under black light)

Hemp wrapped wire dream catcher with various stones, gems, brass, shell, and a coyote fang on this cool brass chain I found at the hardware store.

This one was a little different for me.  I'm not used to making things that are so...girly? delicate? This.  But I find the results pretty adorable, surprisingly. 
Brass and faux pastel pink pearl, and a little puffy heart. Smiley

Annnnd 5 of those awesome old school 80s bell clip charm necklaces combined into some sort of madness.

Thanks for letting me share, and I'd love to know what you think. 
Specifically of the flower/pearl/heart necklace, since it's not something I'm used to...

I adore the one with the pearls that is off centre,

and Hooooooly crap at all those 80's toys! So many! I wanna know if they make noise when you walk. Smiley

I'm not usually one much for super girly things either, nor am I a fan of gold, but I still really like that necklace a lot!!  I think it's the asymmetry that makes it work so well- very cool!  (Nice job on your other creations too- I love how different from one another they all are)

First I want to thank you! I've had one of those little bell clips and my mom (who gave it to me randomly X)) and I have been trying to figure out why someone would want a two-tone pink girl scout with a wobbly head and a bell on a plastic clip. It was the 80's! Makes sense now.

Though I'm not one for bullet jewelry, the one you made is really clever. The glow one is awesome!

I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.

There cool, so unique and different. Beautifully refreshing.

I remember having one of those necklaces and collecting all those charms. I think my favorite was a pink and green rollerskate.

That Uranium necklace kind of concerns me  Undecided

Interested in Nancy Drew, Harry Potter, or any kind of personal swap! Smiley

Uranium? Really? Is that safe? It's pretty, but it sounds a bit worrisome. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium

I really like the bullet jewelry, that's very nice. Smiley
