New necklaces!

Hooray! It still may be a bit before these make it up to my etsy, as there are a lot of things I'm working on (exciting things! Like cleaning my house, and ridding it of the couple inches of "It's Final's Time" trash.) I'll also be rearranging my furnature, Which is also super exiting for me!

Anyways, I spent saturday buckling down and desinging and assembling a boat load of neclaces, and I'm still not done. This could have been faster if I didn't insist on buying bulk chain and lobster clasps and assembling each necklace chain by hand, but hey, it was cheaper for me so it means things will be cheaper for the world of etsy. And that's good for all parties involved.

There is one design that's not up here, that one'll be a surprise. Also, I'm still have a couple ideas rummaging around my head that may or may not come to fruition.

The top three are all made with gunmetal chain, which has to be my absolute favorite metal ever. It's so smooth! And beautiful!

It's a bummer that the chain I used for the leaf necklaces was discontinued. The scissors and key necklaces use a much thinner chain. So as a note, after my first batch of leaf necklaces are sold, they too will be made with the thinner chain.

The leaf one has got to be one of my favorites, I used some of the tiny scrap pieces of chain to make myself one as a small bracelet.

Big News!

Hi everybody! I've got some great news! In about a week my key chains will be available for purchase by any average Joe off the street over at D Structure in San Francisco at 520 Haight St!

This is super exciting for me! What does this mean for you? Well, because this store prefers clothing supplies they've asked me to do more necklace work. I've got EIGHT new necklace designs planned out that I'll be working on to get them in the shop next week. I'm not sure yet which ones will make it to the store and which ones won't, but I'll be sure to keep you posted!

Also, now that I've got time outside of school I'll be working on getting many more things up on my etsy. I've got some designs that those of you who stopped by my booth at Fanime will have already seen, especially quite a few fan art key chains that will only be available online.

Be excited!

Once again, with flair!

Look at that, I'm updating before a whole month passed by! Hopefully I can make updating an even more common occurrence. Especially since another school semester has come and gone.

Today I'd like to give you some art of mine that never got a chance to see the light of day. They're mostly unfinished, but since I don't plan on completing them they'll have to do with just being posted here.

First off, fan art for disney's the princess and the frog! Fairly old, and I was never quite happy with it, so I got bored and moved on.

Next a picture of me, done quickly after a "If you see this image, you must draw yourself wearing whatever you're currently wearing" sort of promt. I decided to go along with it, but it was during a busy school section so I never got around to finishing it, much less posting it.

This one was for a group I'm part of on deviantart. There was a "race" event where everyone drew their character's running, I started but didn't have enough time to really work on it before the event ended. I still was really happy with how the lineart was coming along though.

And that's it for now! Back to finishing up my finals!
