All glass is hand cut and shaped by me and is fired in my kiln at 1500 degrees to get this wonderful shape. All my pieces are properly annealed for durability. This piece is 100% glass not paint or paper on glass.
Wooden Mead Cups with burned motifs. Left: Gotland picture stone; middle: Wolf Warrior from Obrigheim sword scabbard; right: Mask from Arhus picture stone
I am still looking for the perfect cup to work on; olive and birch wood cups are hard to come by and expensive, so for now I have done a series of these. Some I did let go without taking photos first; these are among the first I made.

AH I LOVE THIS. You have no idea. I love this costume so much it kills me. This was so much fun to wear and I know its missing a few things. But I LOVE her to death. ♥ I loved this outfit the moment I saw it in the gameplay trailer. And it was so quick to make, I couldn't resist. And now after playing the game, I'm glad I did. I ADORE Liz so much. She and I? We would totally be bros. XD

I liked this background best, but a less active background with this knife is pictured on my Facebook. It actually does show the lines of the knife better; [link]
I'll have the measurements when I get it back in the mail.
I've been working on this one on Sundays, when I've had a chance. It is the only knife I have finished for the Arkansas Knife Show in Feb. My sword, dagger, and Valkyrie have a long way to go, in terms of being ready for the show. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have them finished, because they are...just amazing.
When I am working on my orders, this right here is what gets me through the day. Knowing that I'll be able to work on something like this.
Here's to taking over the world.
P.S.- you get awesome points for knowing what the name is in reference to.
A Lego 'Pannier Tank' steam engine of my own design, and a GWR-style coal truck too. I tried my best to build something that both looked as realistic as possible AND was compatible with regular Lego train systems (hence the low buffers to match the height of other trains' couplings, and tall cab to allow minifigs to stand inside).
Being a huge fan of steam railways this is my favourite thing I have ever built. Oh and that number '1' on the sides means that this is the first of many. Long-term I plan to build an entire Lego railway layout but for now I'm having fun trying to create specific types of engines and rolling stock.
a francaise in 1740-60's style, made of expensive enbroidered black silk with gold thread and trimmings of golden lace. i thought i would go for som really extreme this time while i was at it! mostly handsewn, and it is lined all the way on the inside with a winered/purplish fabric. a matching petticoat ans stomascher is to come, but this is it for now!
This is one example of what I've been doing lately - beading. I've discovered how very fun and rewarding designing jewelry is, so I've been going nuts with it.
This beautiful charm bracelet tinkles like a bell! Sterling silver star and moon charms are surrounded by a heavenly combination of blue, purple, and white for an effect truly out of this world. An easy to use toggle clasp with pretty swirl designs makes this bracelet simple to put on and fun to look at from every angle.
-------- Total assembly time = 4 hours. The components include sterling silver charms, glass beads and pearls, crystals, dyed jade, mother of pearl chips, and hematite - all attached to a 6.5 inch long sterling silver chain and silver-toned clasp. Bracelet diameter is 7 inches when closed. Longest charms hang down one inch.
My best friend and I are big Star Trek fans, and we have a particular love for Star Trek: The Next Generation and Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Every year for his birthday, I give my friend something Star Trek-themed. This was the first year I was able to make him something unique.
Behold the "Bake it so" apron!
The original was designed and printed by me!
Update #1: Holy moley! George Takei, the legendary Mr. Sulu himself, saw my apron and posted it on his facebook page way back in November. Colour me flabbergasted!
Update #2: After many requests, the 'Bake it so' aprons are now available for a limited time at my tiny Printfection shop: [link]
