Charming memories

Last night, I started furiously working on an exciting order. In fact, it'll be my first dabbling into consignment. I'm so excited! It was a good excuse to buy some new beads, too, so how could I not be excited? Here's a little preview into the goodies.

I finally have an excuse to make more Wonderland rings. Here's what I completed last night:
(Back row: "Painting the roses red," the caterpillar, the Cheshire cat. Front row: the Jabberwocky, the carpenter.) I plan to do a variety of images, and some will be hand colored. Ooo-OOO-ooo!

"Why the fact is, you see, Miss, this here ought to have been a red rose tree, and we put a white one in by mistake."


In case you can't tell, I'm a bit of a nut about the Lewis Carroll books. I have the fondest memories of my dad reading an illustrated version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to me every night before bed as a child. I find Wonderland quotes to fit most aspects of life. I've been itching to re-read the books; luckily, between the two of us, my love and I have three copies. I'm currently working on a brilliant display for the rings. Just wait and see!


And here's the other project for the week: memory wire bracelets.

I finished these eight last night. The four on the bottom have "charming" embellishments:

I'm feeling mighty productive. Tonight I intend to finish another custom order from my greatest buyer, and then I'll get back to making "memories". I'm all about the puns today. As I learned watching True Blood last night, "Puns used to be the highest form of humor." So I'm not corny -- I'm old-timey. :)

these rings are awesome! I love the classic Alice art. Always thought they'd make a great tattoo...if I ever did one ;)
