Art Update - Earrings are fun, but I love getting to play with glitter!

Part three of "ye gads, how am I still posting stuff I was working on two months ago?". I've been getting some requests for dragon horns and it's making me realize that I'm almost sold out of them- and that it's falling into Renfaire/Halloween season and I'm falling behind! Expect to see another post soon as I frantically try to get a few pairs of horns made and listed (okay, okay, I do love getting to play with glitter!), but for now, here are two pairs I worked on a few weeks ago as custom orders.

Teal Blue Dragon Horns Teal Blue Dragon Horns

These teal (sea green?) horns are similar to my usual style but made for a custom order based on a picture that the customer sent me; these are taller (about 4"), narrower, and curve a bit differently. I really have to find a better spot to take pictures so the colors come out more vibrant in photos because that's such a pretty blue in person. :) Like usual, I have these on a shoelace that serves as a headband.

And speaking of usual, for another order I put together a purple pair like I'd made before:

I have so many glitter colors that I really want to get more of these made for my shops. :)

And time for some chainmaille! I got a request from one of my coworkers for a stretchy maille bracelet in turquoise and white and this was the result:

I have a few more to make for said coworker (and another, too!) so look for those soon.

Before I moved I also made a few chain earrings. This one was a custom order, but I think I may list it in my shop as a regular thing, too:

Blue, Green and Silver Double Cartilage Chain Earring

This is the same as this earring but without the dangle from the lobe.

Autumn Leaf Cartilage Connecting Chain Earring

This one is up on Etsy and Artfire but isn't technically new; I'd made this design before but had to change the colors a bit when I ran out of the earlier leaf beads.

Wing earring time! I also had two requests for cartilage chain earrings with black beads and silver wing charms attached; that must be a popular color combination.

This first one connects up to a sterling silver ear cuff; this does actually fit on an ear but because sterling silver is so fragile I didn't want to push too hard to get it to fit on my mannequin.

And here's the other. With this one it's a matching pair with double chains:
