This week I did manage to work on art and list new things, though! Hooray! Judging from the colors of most of this week's art, I'm back to being inspired by my art muse- I'm glad she's back because I missed working in all these greens, browns, and blues!
These two were for the same person- her daughter has multiple piercings in her ears, so I connected the chains to two lobe posts and the two lobes to a cartilage in the matching earring. I think these turned out really neat!
These earrings were for another fun customer- she really wanted the colors of my Imladris earring but with the beaded dangle bit of the Woodland earring. I actually like this pair better than the earrings they were based from; I love making custom orders because I get to come up with new styles and designs. :D
I also listed two new things in my shops:
"Wood Elf green and brown hemp bracelet or anklet" on Etsy and Artfire
"Green and Brown Leaf Cartilage Chain Earring - Wood Elf" on Artfire and Etsy
Yup, they kinda match- or at least, they were from the same inspiration. Here's a bit of trivia about that earring: that brown bead above the leaf is one of the very very oldest beads in my stash; it's close to twenty years old, which is pretty neat considering that I'm only 26.
I didn't get to work on any writing this week, unfortunately. Well, I've been hit by some plot bunnies, but I've been working on a large custom order that has to come first, so those ideas are on the back burner. But speaking of plot bunnies, one of my Plurk friends linked me to a site for writers and I joined up. The site is bunnyrabbitsex.com, but don't be appalled by the name- it just has to do with those plot bunnies I mentioned (there's an explanation here).
I'm hoping that being around other writers will give me the encouragement to work on my current story/character more, as well as start more fantasy stories about that world (I've got a grey elf who wants me to write about him, too). And hey, maybe I'll finish those LotR parodies I started years and years ago... probably not, but maybe. (Did I really think I could parody entire books? lol!)
