This was a set I made for a custom order- she wanted two different styles of cartilage chain earrings, a chainmaille handflower, and a stretchy maille bracelet all in pink and black and with butterflies as a theme.
First, the regular cartilage chain earrings:
A double chain with a cartilage cuff for the one ear and a plain lobe dangle for the other, with cute butterflies.
Here are the other earrings:
These are definitely different and the first time I used large chainmaille jump rings for earrings. She wanted these with long chains, so they're even longer than the other ones, and I used bigger butterfly beads. I'm not sure if I'll make more like this in the future or not, but I think they came out pretty neat. Large rings work for pink and black- very 80s.
Here is the stretchy chainmaille bracelet:
The pink rings are the same as on that last earring and the black ones are rubber.
And here's the handflower/slave bracelet:
I really liked this one- it's cute!
Cartilage Ear Cuffs
Have some new ear cuffs in my shops, like always. What can I say, I have a thing for earrings. ;)
Flight of the Pegasus - Blue and Silver Ear Cuff on Etsy and Artfire
(Here I tried to use beads in colors that represent the sky and clouds, the domain of the Pegasus.)
Jolly Roger - Red and Black Pirate Ear Cuff on Etsy and Artfire
(I always associate red and black with pirates, although that's probably because my pirate renfaire costume is those colors. ... actually, I should probably make one of these to go with that, huh?)
Water Goddess - Blue and Green Ear Cuff on Etsy and Artfire
(I think I may make an ear cuff with a goddess representing each of the elements, but I'm running low on goddess charms so that'll have to wait a bit.)
Art in Progress
Also kinda sorta forgot to share these stretchy bracelets in my last art update- made these for my craft show this weekend, too. :)
I love that my arms are small enough that normal people-sized bracelets can go all the way up my arm to make a sleeve. I'm not really hobbit-sized, I swear! ;)
I'm running really low on pink jump rings (as in I have about ten left) so I have to reorder those soon. Can't do much with ten jump rings; even my earrings needed more than that, I think. Just about all I can do with ten jump rings is lose them under my desk. Every time I go to vacuum I find about a dozen stray jump rings that I've shot across the room that week. So far I haven't hit the cat, but I'm sure she'll become an inadvertent target at some point. She'll get tummy rubs, though, so don't worry about her. ;)
