Two Commisioned And One New….

 So, after much talking and revising and trying to get it just right, I’ve officially finished my two commissioned pieces. One, a “Vamp Stamp” with swarovski crystals marking the toothy insertion and more crystals immitating the trail of blood. Though it’s quite “dark” and “gorish” I thought it would best suit the person to whom it was made for- a ‘Twihard’ fan.

The second person, however, was a little hard to make for. She’s a mom, but she’s into anime and love Harry Potter and is like the human encyclopedia. Then I learned she was very simple, yet really religious. So I cooked this up for her:
Both necklaces were made with sterling silver and all pendants were made by hand. Yep…including that cross. lol =)
Last but not least, here’s a photo of another piece I’m making…a variation of my ‘mixed medium” necklace. I’m trying new colors and looking into designs I can make with large chains. Don’t know what I’ll call it yet, but I like what it’s coming out to be so far.

Welcome to the Royal Tea Garden Party!
No English woman is ever complete without her stunning set of pearls!
This design has been in my head for months. Maybe almost a year, but the time was never right to make it. Either I didn’t have the connectors or the colors or whatever, but I finally decided that I was going to make it and love it no matter how it came out and boom! This is what I got. I liked it so much that I decided I was going to make a sister necklace to it. It would be more bejeweled, more Queenly. I figure I’m going to call it my Royal Family Collection. When I look at this and the bracelet and ring I made of the same genre, it feels very English royalty to me.

Did I mention that this brooch is detachable and can be worn on any part of the necklace or on anything you want? But aside from this darling, here’s a look at the other two pieces I completed over the weekend:

This piece is a refashioned and redesigned “woodland” bracelet featured in my facebook album. The differences, though subtle, are great as this bracelet houses 5 swarovski crystals at its core.

I’m also working on a ring that I’m hoping will look nice and then photographing these bad-boys (sorry for the pic quality, taken from my phone) and putting them up for siz-zale!

As promised, here are some photos of what I’ve been doing with regards to fascinators and brooches. The floral one at the top I made ages ago, and I filled out the feather fascinator. I’m tempted to add some tulle to it and name is “Hera’s Revenge.”
