I Made Jewelry!

So I spent some time today making jewelry that I'm ridiculously proud of. 

A couple of weeks ago at a Renaissance Fair I kept getting comments about my outfit being 'steampunk' and then I was invited to a steampunk ball by a stranger.  So I went home and looked the stuff up and found out that I am actually rather steampunk, I just didn't know it because I don't really pay that much attention to... well... lots of things. LOL.  I'm hoping to start writing some steampunk erotica sometime soon, I've got an idea for one story but I need to do some more research into how steampunk erotica differs from regular erotica. I already know I like the general fiction. 

It's also a fashion thing though, and at the Renn Fair I was at a booth selling steampunk inventions when the owners asked if I would consider coming back at a later date "fully steampunked out" and posing for cards. I have no idea what kind of cards they meant (greeting cards? playing cards?) but the main thing is that they want to use real people for them. I might not be chosen, but they want my picture. So I said sure, I'd love to.

Luckily I found out that I'm actually so interested in steampunk fashion without knowing it that I already had everything but the jewelry. I actually LOVE steampunk jewelry, something else I found out, but most of the pieces that I have didn't go as well with the outfit I wanted to wear. So I figured I'd make some, because I didn't want to just buy stuff anyway.

This is probably my least favorite piece, it's just a pin. I like it, I just don't LOVE it:




This is the other pin I made which I freaking LOVE, which is why it's displayed on the money pouch that I use. I think it's the dangly part that makes me love it so much.
This is the necklace I made. I have a small obsession with cameos. Always have. I kinda wish this had a black background on the cameo part, but at the same time I kind of like the brighter color. I'll have to get a black background one some other time.
This is a bracelet... there's another bracelet that I want to make but all the pieces haven't arrived yet so in the meantime, this is a smaller bracelet. The cool part is, they're all separate parts and they actually rotate.
And I made a ring:
Aaaaaaaaaaaand my FAVORITE piece. I found this at an accessory store and was like WOAH. And then I put gears on it. It's just so unusual, I'm a little obsessed with it. Spent a while stroking hubby's goatee with it. He thought it was weird but I enjoyed myself. LOL
Soooooo no I didn't really get much writing done today. I did do some. Like, two paragraphs. And I've thought about storylines and whatnot. So that's good right? Brainstorming and all. LOL. But yeah. This is why I didn't get much done today. Don't worry though! Tomorrow I'm planning on spending a lot more of my time writing =)

    1. Heh heh aawwww thanks! Yeah I've been putting off making the jewelry for weeks now in order to write so I figured it was time. I did get a TON of writing done yesterday though which was good. I got Sarah's PD all ready for Kindle and got about a third of the way through the revisions for Wanna Bet... I'm hoping to finish that one for Kindle by next weekend!
