New stuff! ...after like a year. >.>

I'll leave the old stuff here, too. I also got a portable light box. It's a neat plastic thing that unfolds and has an LED strip on a flap at the front and has a couple of nice, big foam backdrops. The issue is I need to cobble together some kind of stands for things, ideally white ones.

Anyway, in the blazing heat all I had energy to make was some stretchy bracelets. I may make some more; not sure yet.

Red glass pearls, stainless steel and red glass with glow-in-the-dark pieces (glow doesn't show through the red)


Green glass pearls, stainless steel and green glass with glow-in-the-dark pieces (glows amazingly!)


Green-dyed jade and stainless steel


Green aventurine and stainless steel


Sodalite and stainless steel


Yellow-dyed jade and stainless steel


Mahogany obsidian and stainless steel


Leopardskin jasper with stainless steel

Some piled-up stuff! Shiny.

Mixed bracelets


Glass bracelets


Gemstone bracelets


Necklaces


Fun supplies:
















Awesome jewelry:

















I have so much fun getting and making this stuff, and know so few that share my enthusiasm. Maybe somebody here will enjoy the shinyness as much as me!

These are gorgeous! ♥ I love jewellery like this, especially the second to last necklace.

New supplies!





Not pictured (due to difficulty): white, yellow and blue diamond dust. I'm too poor for actual diamonds. =P





I'm waiting for some sterling silver supplies to arrive so that I can complete this. Made from opal, citrine, ruby and swarovski crystal.

Well, I'm working on a website for all of this stuff... I don't want to use a traditional shopping cart because becoming a proper, registered business is still down the road as yet, and SSL/TLS (secure website stuff) understandably requires that be done first.


It's not going to be the easiest thing I have done, as I will need to manually add/remove items, but with everything being unique, I pretty much need to do that anyway. I'll also have to only use PayPal for the time being, much as I am rather disgruntled with them of late.


Hope I'm not breaking any rules. It has been a while since that last post was... posted.

Whew... As old as this thread is, I figured it would be silly to start a new one for the same content, so in the first post, and here, are some new things. I got some amazing stretchy string (seriously, I couldn't break the stuff, only stretch it badly), and a light box for taking photos! It'll be better once I figure out some manner of display stands, but bracelets are easy to photograph, at least!

100% blessed. I like these a lot. Sadly, they'd just gt lost in my room like all of my other jewellery except my pocket watch. I'm not very much of a jewellery person. ==' But these are good nonetheless. XD

Added a few photos I took as some category covers for my website-in-progress. Can be found here, and in the first post.

Wow! All of these look pretty great. How much time do you usually put into making jewelry?

@Alarkus Depends on the day. Some people stress-bake. I stress-jewelcraft, haha. I try to make at least one thing a day, though. It's a good space out with TV hobby. Like knitting.

Brother made thumbnails for my Lets Plays. He's a swood dude.
Since I'm getting so busy (the fact that I'm often here is due to the fact that this is my procrastination #1 destination), I'm trying a new system where everyday I dedicate 30 minutes to my personal game project. That way it won't fall into the abyss.

Gosh... Today seems too much like a good day to do nothing....

I need to keep myself focused...! :kaoback:
