Hope you like them! They're all for sale in my shop, as usual.
I'm working on finishing the last of my custom orders (yeah, I STILL have some left) and then I should be able to re-open them again! I don't want to make empty promises, but I'm hoping to open them up again somewhere mid February / start of March. It all depends on how much work I have and how things go with university!
Have a great weekend everyone! ♥
An easy wire-wrapping tutorialWhen it comes to making jewerly, especially silver, wire-wrapping technique is one of the nicest consider the availability and costs of the materials (it definitely beats Art Clay Silver at these points). But before you get silver wire and start making such fabulous pieces like the ones I've featured in the end, it's good to take your first steps using something cheaper - and here comes the copper wire - and making something simpler, to get used to this lovely technique.An easy wire-wrapping tutorial3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This tutorial I originally posted on my blog a couple of months ago and I thought about sharing it also here.
This is what we're planning to get.
First of all, we need stones - the more regular they are, the better. No need to think about any super duper expensive ones now (: I collected most of them in my garden, there are also parts of my old broken earrings and a small glass ball. We also need sharp pincers, round pincers and a wire, 0.6mm or thicker, 40cm at least. Copper wire i
PE: Wire-WrappingThis article is a short introduction to wire-wrapping, including information about wire-wrapping terms and tools, methods, tutorials and a feature of beautiful jewellery.PE: Wire-Wrapping1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
What is wire-wrapping?
"wire-wrapping" is - like the name implies - a technique where wire is wrapped in whatever way. It can be used to hold gemstones in place, and create intricate jewellery. It has the big plus that soldering isn't neccessary, and therefore all the equipment needed is relatively easy to come by.
Terms and Tools
Wire comes in different different sizes and forms, and you can choose between materials as well - you can use brass, copper, silver and gold wire.
Wire diameter is measured in 'gauge' and ranges from 14 gauge (~1/16 inch) to 26+ gauge (1/64 inch), so the higher the gauge number, the thinner the wire.
Let me love you.Today I talked with a woman who's daughter I knew since we were kids. This girl was always introverted, really shy. And half the time I figured people didn't even notice she was there. But I noticed. We became this awkward sort of 'friends' our sophomore year of high school all the way up to graduation.Let me love you.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Her mother told me today that she is still backwards and pretty awkward around people but she's getting better. I assured her that I tried to bring her daughter out of her shell, and she smiled and said to me, "Oh I know—she talked about you everyday after school. Kayla did this, Kayla said that. Kayla brought me into this prank…"
( Sidenote: We taped printed out pictures of kittens all over our history teachers classroom.)
I always figured she thought I was annoying and merely put up with me.
But now, all I can think is, "Wow—someone thought I was awesome enough to tell the closest people to them about. MEEEEE."

P S AALRIGHT SO… Back in January I dealt with some imposter-ing around the web. I did lose access to one my email accounts, and then my Skype and a some small sites. This didn’t affect tumblr, DA, FA, HF, or any of my sites. I permanently lost access to my Photobucket and Xanga, but I haven’t used those since highschool soooo… yeah… anyway… Skype was the ONLY one I recovered. But in general, if you talk to someone on Snapchat or Steam or Xbox or the PSN or forums or WHATEVER, it’s not me. Like I’m sorry, but it’s not. PLEASE be careful when giving gifts to these players and people. Do not agree to art trades, commissions, etc etc. If’s not a site linked on my hub or you’re not talking to me on Skype (which unfortunately is NOT slugbox, because someone else has that), then it’s NOT ME.P S A1 year ago in Personal More Like This

A reference guide on bookbinding typesA reference guide on bookbinding typesA reference guide on bookbinding types1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
When I tell people I'm a bookbinder they often think I make only one type of book; the library kind. That, however, is only one of the many ways an artist can create a book. For me, it's a fun challenge to pick the right binding style to go with the purpose of the book. Whether it is a novel that needs to look really classy or medieval, a sketchbook for a graphic novelist or a paper about connections that lets me show the binding. In this article I'm going to tell you a little bit about all the types of bookbinding that I know. I'm not going into details but, if possible, I will link to images and tutorials that do.
If you're here for inspiration: this guide is pretty long. I recommend scrolling through the images first!
To make a start...
The different ways of binding books can be broken down into two general groups: adhesive bindings and non-adhesive bindings. Adhesive b
Collection: Twelfth NightCollection: Twelfth Night7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Twelfth Night is the Christian festival marking the end of the Christmas season. In ancient times, it also meant that the world, upside down since Halloween, is finally turned right side up for us to begin our new year. But, more or less importantly, depending on your personal fervor for religion or world literature, it is also the title of a rollicking comedy by William Shakespeare. Written around 1601, it displays Will’s tendency to be a tad ahead of his time, featuring as it does a Countess falling in love with another young woman (albeit disguised as a boy) long before same–sex marriage coming into vogue.

What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country
