Spanking new!

Seems that spending an entire weekend doing craft shows is not enough for me, I continue to wake up early in the morning with a brain RACING with new ideas. It's wonderful, but exhausting! I got to spend the weekend with my pals Elsie of Namaste and Nina of Tacos and Eggrolls. We had a blast despite slow foot traffic at the Pretty Little Pageant. On Sunday, things looked up for me and I did very well at the Dragonfly.

I finished a custom bracelet for my friend Seiya to give to his mother who lives in Japan. He told me she loves anything inspired by 19th century European Jewelry. I had a field day! I researched all kinds of jewelry to get ideas and this is what I came up with:

I've always loved Cameos, but have never been able to afford the real ones, made out of coral. I'm starting to toy around with using images of cameos in my pieces. I'm going to make more of this bracelet! I'm really happy with how it turned out. I've posted all of the photos from the little shoot I did yesterday in my backyard as the sun went down on flickr. Here are a few of my favorites:

This saturday is the LA Derby Dolls bout, my first time vending in LA. I'm looking forward to it. I don't know how I'll do there, but it will be a unique experience!
