mellicious: pink manicure (WoW - shiny)
[personal profile] mellicious
Wanna know why I am getting so much into jewelry? It's all Elise's fault. God, I love that necklace. I want to be able to make something like that someday. (And I also would like to be able to sell things that cost $700 and change, incidentally!)

I had a watchface I hadn't made up my mind what to do with, so I made a watchband out of jet beads for that, finally - which I keep forgetting to take pictures of - and last night I made two more bracelets and some earrings. My sister thinks that we should try to get accepted to sell at the Nutcracker Market this fall (big, big gift show held in Houston every November) so obviously I need to get to work. I'm watching very closely about what items I wear that people admire, and so forth. Doing something big like Nutcracker Market is going to be scary when I'm not entirely sure what's going to sell. I really think the little short dangly earrings that I've been making out of Czech beads* will sell well to that sort of crowd, though. I guess I just need to make a lot of those in wintry colors and cross my fingers. (Which is not to say that that's all I will make, anyway. I will try out a number of things.)

Incidentally, I was telling[personal profile] columbina  about my watch with the jet beads and we ended up discussing the Wikipedia entry on jet. (Jet is actually a petrified wood - sort of similar in composition to high-grade coal, oddly.) We is geeks.

Speaking of geeky, I am fascinated by stuff like this: Dino-Era Feathers Found Encased in Amber

OK, I have refrained from saying much about American Idol, but it turns out that one of the guys is an Aggie, and I think that's hilarious. It's the guy I would have least picked to be an Aggie, too - the stoner kid with the dreads. I tend to like the rockers and the folkies, which means that I like the kid with the dreads - Jason is his name - and Brooke, the girl folkie, and Carly and David Cook (I only remember last names when I have to, at this point) and Amanda the rocker-nurse - although Amanda is such a specialized taste that I can't imagine she'll last too long. The other David, Archueleta or something like that, is supposed to be the odds-on favorite and he does have an absolutely gorgeous voice but he doesn't do much for me otherwise. The rest of them can all sing, of course, but they don't do that much for me either.

Czech beads = these:
