PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT TIME
I assume that most of you know I swear by Swarovski crystal products. Sparkly to the extreme and whatnot. But sadly it appears as though they’ve already discontinued a few things that I happen to use quite often: the triangle crystals for my Triforce pendants, and the uber-sparkly catches I use for my Wild Tiger and Barnaby Brooks Jr. call bracelets.
At this moment, I managed to snag a few of these things on sale. I currently have quite a few bracelet clasps, so no worries there yet (and I’m sure I’ll find something suiting even after they disappear from the market entirely). Regardless, if you want to snag a single-sided or double-sided call bracelet as I’ve been making them, please do so soon.
But as for the triangles. Oh those lovely triangles. I wanted my followers to know that I currently have enough for two (2) Triforce pendants. After that, I can’t guarantee that I will find these again, and certainly not be able to offer them at the current price. (The listing is for the gold-plated “glittering gold” variety, but I can still do a “solid gold” pendant as well. Yes, that will cost considerably more. Ugh, gold prices.)
I’m so very happy to report that Pyrria has found a good home and will be sent on her way shortly! (Well, I don’t want her waiting in a box for any longer than she has to.)
Today’s featured item: Alchemist’s Pet! 31 stunning Swarovski crystals and so many more beads than I would ever want to count. This lovely companion is also 20% off until midnight tomorrow!
Today’s featured item: FiSele! 30 days of work, an enormous wingspan of 47 inches, 251 embedded Swarovski crystals and jewelry of his own; FiSele is quite something. He’s also got a hefty discount at 20% the usual price through November 10.
Today’s featured item: the Maleficent-themed dragon bracelet! What can I say; I have a deep appreciation for the Mistress of All Evil. And you can show your own by getting the bracelet at 20% the regular price through November 10!
Wow, sold! Maybe this means I should attempt a similar style again. …If I can remember where I put certain things.
(Not that an appreciator of shiny things can ever complain about going through their vast collection of said shiny things to find one specific shiny thing.)
An old, battered peacock cabochon I’d gotten years ago at a discount really needed a new life. Add leftover seed beads, some wire scraps, Swarovski crystals and a band of super-soft black leather I’d been playing with and… results! There’s a little extra dusted gold detailing along the top and bottom, since… well, shiny.
I so needed to do something simple. Even if hand-sewing leather is full of cursing.
(It’s currently available for sale, as well.)
New(-ish) items in the Etsy shop! Summon Eruption is a gold wire-wrapped piece of brilliant red tiger’s eye and would surely serve as one heck of a summon materia. Then you have Glittering Triforce, finally available as a made-to-order piece! And lastly, something that’s been requested in the past, a Black and White Materia Pair, sterling silver-wrapped rainbow obsidian and white quartz.
Dustel. His kind have often been referred to as “false fairy dragons” by classifying wizards with absolutely no sensitivity at all. Not that Dustel will hold it against them. He’s easy-going and perfectly content to explore at his own pace, or just to lay back and relax while someone else takes him on an expedition. He’s an excellent conversationalist, by the way. Dustel also has a thing for breakfast cereal. But don’t we all have a thing for breakfast cereal?
This little guy started out as something very different. I was working on a commission for a snake bracelet, having just finished the head and… no, that wasn’t a snake head at all. It had ears, for one thing. So I set it aside and started again. Once the commission was done, I returned to this clearly-not-a-snake and figured that it was so eager to be unique that I should help it along. The result is a strange evolution of bead sculpture and bracelet.
Much more information and a whole one other picture over at his gallery page. He also happens to be for sale, looking for a companion to tell stories to. I’m sure reciprocation would be appreciated.
Well-known to those who do battle as an occupation, Phoenix Down is something of a necessity for reviving members of your party that may not have dodged in time. (Granted, the ice version doesn’t actually exist in the games, but… it’s a nice thought when the temperatures start climbing.) Seems like a good idea to keep a spare close by, right?
I was just hit by an idea for sparkly simplicity and happened to have wire to play with right next to me. Of course something geeky happened. And of course that Swarovski crystal.
(The Phoenix Down necklace is available here, and the Ice Phoenix Down version here. For future reference, gold-filled gold wire and sterling silver wire versions are possible by commission.)
