Trying to write some papers for school, but good news: FINALS ARE NEXT WEEK! And then I get to make things! FINAL-ly (get it?).

Anyways, here’s a quick update:

Have some cool ideas for my spare turtle vertebrae and am going to finish stringing the deer vertebrae cap necklaces.

Cleaned the ENTIRE boneyard at my mom’s house over the weekend, so I’m going to start peroxiding and degreasing those things for jewelry making when I go back home in 2 weeks.

So there’s that.

I’m horrible for the lack of posts! I apologize once again for it!

It’s the end of the semester, which means finals, which means studying, which means no free time, which means… no jewelry or art.

So yeah, that’s why I haven’t had any updates… sorry…

I went home this past weekend and cleaned up the boneyard really well! I hate to say this, but I’m probably going to have to quit bone collecting for a while and work with what I have and what I’m currently cleaning… I had lots of stuff (rabbit, skunk, raccoon, squirrel, cat, turtle, deer, etc. bones that will be used for jewelry in the future.

I’ll try to keep updated more often as finals come to an end and I go home for the summer… lots of things to be made during my break :)

Thanks for everyone that puts up with my lack of updates and lack of time! I really appreciate you all sticking around.

Sketch for my self portrait for an art show in Detroit over the summer. More details soon.

Second and third pictures are close ups of the drawing.

Art update because I’ve been lazy with jewelry.

GIVEAWAY:

I think I’m going to have my next one around the 666 follower mark.

Made these earrings tonight, inspired by one of Betsey Johnson’s designs. The client asked to make them similar to this design, and this is what I got :)

Definitely different than my usual style, but I needed a little change while I’m getting working on my big order for new stuff and preparing for festivals for the summer.

Think I’ll be vending at Electric Forest and Jafax this summer, as well as having my RAW:Chicago show.

Not much of an update, but….

…I will be ordering plugs sometime this week for encased bone/oddity/picture plugs :)

I’m going to do both heart-shaped plugs (because they’re so cute) and stainless steel tunnels. I probably will be sticking more to glitter and pictures and whatnot to the heart-shaped plugs, since they will also be colored, and more of the oddity stuff to the stainless steel plugs.

Stay tuned!

Thank you guys so much!

I made a whopping sale last night on Etsy and have been seeing lots of improvements in my life that have helped me to be able to have more time to create. I can’t thank you all enough for helping me reach my goal as an artist and jewelry designer!
