Hey all!

I just recently bought a glue gun after years without ever using one, and boy was that a bad idea because now I'm addicted and the only way I will ever stop is if you pry my dead-dried hot glue and minor burned hands off of it.

But on a lighter note... :  )

I have also become infatuated with wire. It is so maluable, I love to make all kinds of crap out of it! Lol, But am I the only one, or do you ever find that you are so crazy about one craft, or one item to make, then after you have made a few your like..meh...lets find something else? I am like that with music, food, everything like it gets old after a while, once im finished consuming it. Is that bad, or am I just fine-tuning my sense of style, craft or whatever?

Here are my goodies, my babies, my loves. Comments are appriciated, even if just to say I suck..joking, but hey who knows.


I just played around with wire until I got the fit and look I wanted.
NOTE: If you ever make one of these rings, please try it on while you are making it. My first couple of trys, I was like "Oh, isnt this a nice combination", then I put it on after minutes of tiresome work to see that my ring looked like a shiny tumor on my finger. Key= simplicity. Im talking 5 beads max.

Im a nerd and made them EARTH FIRE WATER AIR

Oh Wow!  What great ideas! Could you give a tute on how you made the rings? They are FABULOUS!!! I'm not quite clever enough to figure it out on my own...

i really like these!!  the colorful shinyness and all.

but they are hard to look at because you saved your images as gifs.  Seriously looking at all those pixellations (?) makes my eyes swim.

so i wonder if you have also some jpg versions saved of these pictures and could post them instead?  gifs are supposed to be for things without shadings.  jpegs are supposed to be for things with shadings like photos.

sorry if this is not the kind of constructive criticism you were looking for, but really i can't see anything wrong with the jewellery itself. 

creative criticism always appreciated!
