The "My Hometown" Collection

The "My Hometown" collection features jewelry made from local agatized coral. Florida does not yet recognize a state fossil, but its state stone, agatized coral, is actually a fossil. Agatized coral can be any of many species of corals which have been replaced by agate, a variety of quartz chalcedony. It takes a very long time to form, and most of the agatized coral found today in the state lived in the vast Eocene seas which covered the state 35-40 million years ago, when Florida was part of the continental shelf. All of the stones in this collection have been mined in various parts of Florida.

Agatized coral provides the primary energy toward the activation of the divine nature and infinite perfection which is within the self. Agatized Coral can facilitate the projection of energy to create, to sustain, to change, to modify....
Astrological sign is Pisces.

Here are a few photos I took while making Forest Bound. The torch turns the silver such pretty colors sometimes. :)

I just watched the most amazing short film ever. You can watch it here. ( click on the words "I put a spell on you")I wish everyday could be like this film. Its the kind of thing that really gets my creativity flowing. Its got beautiful imagery with a hint of spookiness to it. And the music, which features a couple songs by Glasser, just adds to the greatness of it. I wish I lived in the UK so I could get this issue of the magazine for $11 and have this kind of inspiration forever.
Here are a few screen shots from it, but you have to see it for yourself!

While your there, you should also watch the one "Her eyes are a blue million miles" with Miranda July in it. Its really sweet.

Out of this world

I started out my day trying to find a silky, satin vintage style skirt. But ended up with some great old childrens books from the 70s with amazing stories and pictures. I think ill frame my favorites later this week. It rained the rest of the day so I stayed in and made a couple pendants. My theme for the day was pyrite. Fools gold. ;)
After speaking with Maryjane about a brass colored Nita ring, it got me thinking about gold-toned natural stones. The hunt began. I found two really great specimens. The first, a calcopyrite stone. Which has brassy yellow tones, with slight iridescent purplish tarnish. And the second, my most treasured, a pyrite stalagmite. Which is a drip looking tube that rises up from cave floors, which in this case, had pyrite deposits around it. I set them both in sterling silver, oxidized and brushed them with steel wool. I think they turned out awesome. I think Zoe is especially fun, it looks like it would be perfect for a futuristic dance party.
Here's a few pictures of the pendant making process. Sorry for the dark pictures, we've been getting some much needed rain here in FL.

I'm glad I finally got around to making some more jewelry items. My tiny apartment flooded last week and I had to move everything out in one day. :( boo. But now I have a bigger, nicer one. A blessing in disguise I suppose.

My little orphan tentacles

I just got my tentacles in today! They look so good with all my other randoms. I added a cute lavender bow to match the dried lavender in the fish vase and to cover up the sealant. Another amazing oddity from Marytofts!

My Mai earrings were featured on Etsy's front page on Saturday! They were handpicked by the lovely Billiebrand.

Also, Ive added a few new items since we last spoke. My featured item being the C.Barton Civil War Bullet Pendant. I made one for a friend as a Christmas gift and decided to make another because it turned out so well.

I will also be adding these vintage cuties later this week.

So check them out @ TheSocialCellar

Little Otik

I just got done watching Little Otik with some friends, we picked it out because the preview looked intense. It ended up being pretty awesome and visually appealing. One of my favorite parts was in the beginning where babies were being swept up in nets like fish and sold in a market. The wood baby looks a lot a mandrake doll, like these ones Ive been wanting since I joined Etsy. "Little Otik is based on a Czech fairy tale about a childless couple who adopt a tree stump that looks like a baby. As usual with fairy tales, any deviation from normal behavior triggers disaster — in this case the stump comes to life, grows huge, and starts murdering and eating everybody and everything in its path. Svankmajer, who’s credited with story, screenplay, and direction, uses this narrative as a springboard for a genre-busting masterpiece about the perils of parenthood and what can happen to those who don’t leave well enough alone with the status quo nature has determined."
Its well worth a watch, if you like weird movies.
Next on my movie list is the 1988 Alice and Vertigo.
