I've been really interested in statement jewelry lately.  And since big beads are heavy and clack against stuff, I've been experimenting with soft jewelry.

This one is made with silver  nonstretch lame and black netting.  I was going to use old black nylons, but my hands are very rough so I snag nylons often which seems impractical for a necklace.  The netting I ended up using is from an old ugly skirt.  Initially, I stuffed the tubes but then they just looked like silver poops.  Twisting them in differing directions seemed to work out pretty well, though.

The two button holes on the closure are actually pretty crappy as I just barely learned how to make button holes.  It seems almost criminal that someone who works with textiles constantly didn't know how to make button holes until a month ago.

This one is made with scrap pleather cut into various size circles and then sewed onto a jersey backing in a haphazard pattern.  I polished the pleather circles first with dashboard polish.  This was inspired by a jacket from Outsapop.

Like the first one, LOVE the second one, and am thinking of printing out a picture of you to take to the hairdresser.  Smiley  I've been thinking about bangs for months now but haven't been able to commit.

I just cut my hair myself.  You'd be surprised how easy a simple bob cut can be, but then I'm also a total cheapskate.  Thanks!

WOW!  Love them both, but that second one... I think I just died of lust!   Shocked

And I must say you're deliciously adorable and your hair is fantastic.
I've been "trying" to grow mine out but I need to do something to it or I'm at risk of shaving it all off.  Thankfully you have given me some inspiration.  Smiley  --(now I just need to find where I hid my hair cutting scissors)--

Those are wonderful! I really like the second one... the first one looks a little too much like a snake for me to actually wear but it rocks!

I absolutely love the second one. It's structured and elegant and badass and beautiful all at once.  Cheesy

I LOVE the scaley necklace!  I have some faux croc print material, just a small square, but I bet I could make a wicked piece with it!  Thanks for the inspiration Smiley

Love the pleather one. Beautiful. I would love to see one imprinted with leather making tools to have an embossed feel to the scales...maybe something with tribal symbols. Thinking to myself...now where do I put that leather press kit?
