Stubborn Pink Mexican Fire Opal in Copper by magpie-poet
Stubborn Pink Mexican Fire Opal in Copper
As ever, a lovely stone I have to fight with for decent candids! So best shot for color but fail on tag and backdrop.

I picked up a few fire opals this summer at a show, and of course after having already gotten myself in so much trouble I saw carved mother of pearl flowers that matched them too well to pass on. *sigh* I know it's simple but I really like this one. Probably best the color would look terrible on me :p

(I just realized I never posted the yellow one on here, I'll have to remedy that, I can use some ideas for it.)

Put it on etsy: www.etsy.com/listing/213317820…

Greenwoman Doll
One of the dolls I just finished. (I had to make a few for a show next month, running behind as ever!) Thus far she's the only one to behave nicely while modeling ;) Cloth doll, wrapped joints.

Rutilated Quartz and Garnet Autumn Vine Pendant by magpie-poet
Rutilated Quartz and Garnet Autumn Vine Pendant
I've been making things, just either too similar or too hard to photograph or gifts I never got to photograph before I gave them away.

But I liked how this one turned out so it's going up here, even as I apologize for the photo as ever. This one shows the rutile best, despite the distraction of fingers and chipped nail polish.

Rutilated quartz and rhodolite garnet in 14K gold.

This combination always leaves me torn between thinking of Persephone and Galadriel.

Most of my (at this point not so)recent submissions to groups expired, I didn't close out the notifications so I could ask if the pieces weren't considered good enough or wrong folder or what, since they weren't rejected. Just ignored. But dA seems to have taken it on itself to delete those notifications. Is there a way to look up what groups a piece was submitted to but didn't get in so I can drop them a line to ask?

Alice Painted Charms by magpie-poet
Alice Painted Charms
Plain metal didn't seem to suit the alice theme, so I painted a few of the charms with a toothpick using nailpolish. (Why yes, I do have most colors of polish and have an impulse problem when it comes to hunting down the rest!) Cards are one sided, rabbits are painted on both.

You're welcome. It's really amazing how you get such a flowy feel out of the pyrography, it seems like something that'd be so angular to work with.

Thanks for the llama too! :D
Thank you, I try and work with wood that is nice and soft with little grain.. It definitely helps! :) I think the most important thing with pyrography is just good old fashioned practice.. Getting used to the tool and different techniques is so important..
I absolutely adore your hand made jewellery! It's something I've always wanted to have a go at.. Do you have any advice? :)

Oh gosh, I'm so still learning. Take a look at the tutorials on here, innerdiameter has a good one, I've got a tree one, and see if something appeals. And start with the softest wire you can find :) I started with half hard and don't do it! If you start getting into it, then splurge on the good tools, they're worth it.
