I think that with working on my novel, school, my job and the Etsy shop I've become a little jaded. New ideas for jewelry have been a little hard for me to come by lately and I'm thinking that those may have something to do with it. That or my semi-laziness -_- *sigh* Plus it's hard when you get excited about your new stuff and no one else does :(
The latest items I've posted were really neat though! The Vampire's Coffin necklace (shown above) was really fun to make - the fangs were a bit of a pain to sculpt but I really like how it turned out.
One of my other latest items was The Skull and the Bat necklace - super cool! I love how the white paint made everything else POP!
I would really like to start getting away from using images on my items. I just feel like it's time to expand and handpainting and sculpting sounds like fun. Perhaps freehanding some pendant shapes or splatter paint would be cool!! What do you guys think?
I'll be very excited to see New Moon when it comes out!! Right now the preview is a bit disappointing and there were a few things that I'm a little leery of such as the realistic feel of the werewolves, but time will tell. I do wish that Soloman Trimble and Krys Ivory were reprising their rolls as Sam and Embry. For me they embodied the overal look, feel and youth of Sam and Embry that I had in my head while reading the series, but out of fairness the GQ-looking actors should be given a chance :P We were all scared that Taylor wouldn't be back as Jacob so at least our wish was granted for that, right? ;)
By the way, I swear I'm going through a second or third . . . maybe fourth childhood! I'm obsessed with having all of my favorite Disney movies on DVD! I have Pocahontas, The Lion King, Hercules, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, The Fox and the Hound, The Rescuers, An American Tail, but I'm missing The Little Mermaid, Cinderella and A LOT of others! lol. This whole Disney vault thing is UNFAIR! haha.
