OK, first up, here is my wonderful, talented blog partner's blog current blog post on Bead Soup Blog Hop... check it out! She keeps giving my blushes! I feel alittle like Sally Fields. Anyone else have that kind of moments?
I really do admire her butterfly pendants.. I'm not sure yet what I'll do with mine, but the back brain is thinking about it... I don't think I'll work on it this weekend, it needs to percolate more first. Some of my best ideas come from just letting it ... come. The lovely thing is the reveal isn't until March 30th, so I can allow myself a few weeks before panic sets in. (lol)
Now for the pictures this post.
In September I made a steampunk pin for Sue's wedding, and she love loved loved it. I've been asked from time to time in the last few years about pins or broaches. I've always had a few here and there to sell. I've made a few by commission. In short, I've never systematically made pins apart of my business.
I've decided for this year to deliberately make up a bunch of pins for the booth, and honestly I've had so much fun making steampunk stuff, my guess is most of them will be more steampunk than not. At least the first 3 I made last weekend are all steampunky.
I only came home with 2 of them.. Sue insisted she had to keep one! ( she didn't have to twist my arm)
I will make more... and I seriously want more of the bug blanks from B'Sue ( I got this one in a muse box, which is great cause I never would have bought one on my own, silly me) (actually the metal netting I used on the "medal" pin was from a muse box.. old earring which I deconstructed for the netting)
I'm hoping I can whip up more this weekend, but it's really sort of a caught up everything weekend... sigh...
The goal is to have 12-15 in inventory for show season....
