I’ve lost mine! I am hoping it comes back soon, but I haven’t been really inspired to make anything for a couple of months. I will be set up at the Trinity Tribal Gathering next weekend with the stock I do have, however, and i’ll be donating 25% of every sale to Run4Salmon 2017. I do have some brilliant ideas, but they require some tools I don’t yet have. Recently I discovered something that would allow me to make what I want to make in about a 10th of the time an older version of this tool would allow, and I’m waiting to see if it will be in my hands in the next month or so ( in which case, my maker mojo will have returned hardcore, and i’ll be putting out some totally new thing). Otherwise, I’m just going to need to stare at what I have and hope another binge on Reign will get me flowing again.
Life has been incredibly full! I got married (!), I started another small business, and I’ve got a fun side job at a nice restaurant too. Plus, I gotta be honest, I lost a little creative inspiration. This weekend I did a vending event, however, and I got cleaned out – not having much stock left, of course, makes for a bit of fire under the butt, and so tonight I’ve alerted my family to the fact that I need to finish up watching Orphan Black and sit back down to the workbench.

Right now I’ve got very little else to say here on this blog – simply wanted to let people know I’m active – if you want more up to date, near-daily things, peep me on Instagram!
It has taken me two weeks longer than I’d hoped to get this new collection up, mostly because we’re still trying to dial in a photography process. I really want to be outside with these but it’s still very cold here, and windy, making it uncomfortable for all and kind of difficult to get pictures of these earrings in the wind. Honestly? I’m not the type to suffer for fashion. So, instead of the Feast of Saint Valentine, I present to you Cumplido, a new set of limited edition designs available for both retail and wholesale. This set includes a new cut with standard hoop style, “dryad wings“, as well as a new, tribal/primitive style geared more toward people with gauged ears who can wear them through tunnels, or for those with absolutely NO sensitivities to brass or copper. Currently these are not sealed with a sealant – I still work in a corner of my tiny little cabin with a family to consider, and sealant = fumes. The sealant will, however, make these feasible for those with standard ear piercings as well and keep them from turning skin green when worn through regular ear piercings. But for now, these are made for[…]More
