Cell Phone Charms
Three new cell phone charms/keychains this week, two of which were inspired by Dungeons and Dragons.
Like this earring, it was inspired by the paladin my fiancé plays in D&D whose colors are white and blue. This one sold (the same day it was listed- that was the first time that's ever happened and it had me doing the happy dance!) but I will be making more like it. :)
And a ranger charm:
(Yes, yes, my phone is still as old as dirt.) This one can be found here and here.
I used green stone beads (jade and aventurine) to represent a ranger's preferred wooded environment and the feather is for either the fletching on their arrows or a winged animal companion.
And I made this purple kitty charm as a random present for my friend Niere:
I added the cat charm because I knew she likes cats, purple's her favorite color (and this charm matches her purple cell phone- cool!), and the leaf is to make it look kinda elf-y. I'm just glad there was something I could make her because she's done so much wonderful art for me over the years that I wanted to give her something in return. Well, I have plans to make her something larger, but I'm not sure when I'll have time to do that. So she'll be getting another random present at some point in the future. ;)
I found more letter beads so I'll be making more of those geeky charms, but unfortunately the new ones I found have the holes going the opposite direction, so future charms will have the words facing down rather than across. I don't like that too much, so I'll be on the lookout for beads that have holes on the sides rather than top/bottom.
Cartilage Chain Earrings
Just two of these this week- well, three, but the third was just a minor design change (ran out of small orange beads so used a bigger one on my Party Tree earring).
(Can be found here.)
I made this sort of with one of my favorite video game characters in mind (Pit, the angel from Smash Bros and Kid Icarus), but while I was thinking of a name for it I realized that it looked aquatic as well as aerial, so named it "Skyswimmer's Wing" after the song "Skyswimmer" by Enter the Haggis. (Although, in hindsight, if I was going for an EtH song, I should have just picked my favorite one and gone with "Icarus", which would have worked even better for something inspired by Pit.) ...wow, sorry, broke into geeky ramblings here. Combining art, Celtic rock, video games, and mythology makes me a happy little elf girl. ;)
I also made this pair of earrings for a custom order:
I made these red and black dragon horns with a fire-breathing red dragon in mind, but they're also rather demonic. And shiny. They're very shiny. ;) These can be found here and here.
While making these blue horns I couldn't decide if they were more "blue dragon" or "water fae", so I guess I got the inspiration from both creatures. These are here and here.
I kind of have a thing for orcs (okay, so I only have crushes on two of them, but it's still weird) so I decided to make some orc ears- these can be found here and here.
And half-elf ears:
I realized after I'd designed these goblin ears that the design would be perfect for half-elf ears were I to make them ... well, not orange. This is kind of a cross between the hobbit ears and the elf ones because they're pointer than the halfling but not as large as the elf. These can be found here and here.
I'll be wearing a pair like this to the renfaire at some point in the next month, so I'll be sure to get a picture of what they look like on a human model then. :)
And the last new thing this week are these crocheted autumn wood elf bracers:
They're kind of like these camouflage ones but for a different season. Gotta be able to blend into the forest at all seasons of the year when you're a wood elf. ;) They're here and here.
Man, I really have to start posting more often. I've been so busy lately that I end up doing a mass art dump post once a week or so instead of spacing it out. Sorry about that, guys. But hey, lots of pictures are good, right?
