Tada! I have recently decided to drag myself to the grocery store to mooch internet every chance I get. The reason: to show you guys the wonderful, yet sometimes many months old pieces I have recently made and finally edited. This one I know for sure made it on Facebook right when I completed it, but did not earn a blog to the best of my knowledge. So, here is Baroque Heart!
|Notice the tiny gears? Yep those are stitched in. Even I'm not crazy enough to attempt rivets that small.|

Alas, I cannot duplicate the earrings, for I have forgotten where I bought the findings and cannot find them locally. Plus, internet ordering is not something I participate in unless absolutely hounded by someone to finish a certain project with no exceptions. If you would like to purchase the necklace or see more pictures, you can traipse on over to my Etsy listing for a closer look.
In regards to my bead stash, it keeps growing even without the help of monetary assistance on my part. Over the years, I meet a variety of people who, for one reason or another, give up beading as a hobby or prioritize their jewelry making skills along other lines. This means I usually get a ton of seed beads running my direction and spilling out of my drawers. So, last night I bought a ton of circular containers and attempted to tame part of the overflow. I'm still working on it and will eventually upload a glamour shot of my collection in all its rainbow organized glory! (hopefully)
