I do realize that I am the worlds worst at keeping a journal/blog alive.
Bah, anyways, on-wards!
So what's been happening? Not a great deal. Lost my job so I'm throwing myself into my craft to make a living (While also keeping my eyes peeled for a part time job, because although I love the thought of living off my craft it doesn't share the same sentiment.)
But I've been having awesome thoughts left right and center for what to make. I've had an aweesommee commission put through for many sets of earrings which all sound fantastic! Sherlockian, Whovian, Batmannish to mention a few themes!
Speaking of Batman, saw the Dark Knight Rises. Loved it. Loved every minute of it. Some bits were meh, and some I had quibbles with but it was everything I wanted in a movie. And more. 10/10. Top notch.
But also with this commission they want some "totems" from Inception, a movie I shamefully hadn't seen until a week ago (And I've now seen it about ten times and feel very sad and shamed that I missed the hype back in 2010) And again, 10/10. Loved that too!
But back to jewellery! I've been watching Doctor Who (new) Series 5 and from watching it I've come up with a couple of new ideas.
1> Amelia's Apple - She carves an apple because that's what her mum did when Amelia wouldn't eat them. Which I thought would transfer well into jewellery of my style.
2> A destroyed panel of the TARDIS - Again, transferred very well into being made into jewellery. Shame my printer is awful! Will remake these when I find a good printer with ink that doesn't smudge when wet.
3> A deluxe food scene charm bracelet - Had this idea that I wanted to re-do the food bracelet, but make it deluxe with hand painted blue china plates (Like used in the scene) a prober yoghurt pot, a better bowl of custard and better looking food. Exciting!
4> Charm bracelets of the Doctors. Sort of handmade charms (About 7-8 charms) mixed with beads and metal charms to make Doctor Who charm bracelets. Just need to get my thinking cap on for Nine, although my favourite Doctor, not much in the way off silly easily noticed items like say 3d glasses, converse, bow ties, fish fingers and custard...
So yes. That's me in a nut shell at the moment.
Oh! before I forget! Re-tweet this tweet twitter.com/wearsherlock/statu… to be in with a chance to win a pair of my IOU apple earrings!
