It's been so long since I've swung by I confused updates with entries, so I'll appoligize for duplicating if it ends up as inbox spam!

I'm not big on social media, but you'll still find me popping up more on fb @magpiesmiscellanyjewelry, tumblr @magpiesmiscellany, and 
magpies_miscellany on instagram than here on dA.

My etsy shop is still magpiesmiscellany.etsy.com. Likewise my (also in need of an update) blog is still magpiesmiscellany.wordpress.com

I haunt pinterest sort of like I haunt here, though I do pin a further assorted miscellany of stuff :) I'm @magpiesmisc over there.
Steampunk Ammonite on Cording
Always playing with ammonites :) Another slightly steampunked one on some interesting two tone brown cording I found. Felt like it added to the cabinet of curiosities effect. When I have to write in a few words my jewelry style on applications I always want to put wire wunderkammer...but I get enough odd looks already...

Since I keep vanishing, as much as I'm not big on the newer social media, you'll still find me popping up more on fb @magpiesmiscellanyjewelry, tumblr @magpiesmiscellany, and magpies_miscellany on instagram. I haunt pinterest sort of like I haunt here, but I'm @magpiesmisc over there.
Orthoceras Kraken
Orthoceras fossil, freshwater pearls, bass, coated copper.

My younger cousin wanted a kraken pendant for Christmas, so of course I had to try it out. And I was pretty pleased (I think she was too) but then I decided I wanted a bit more of a mix of the octopuses on ancient pottery, the early scientific illustrations of squids, and the more sensationalist engravings of giant squids attacking ships. With a nod to the cthulhu mythos of course :)

Dynamic Duo - Orthoceras and Meteorite Pendant
Possibly my nerdiest mix yet :) An orthoceras fossil crowned with a piece of Gibeon meteorite. Two fantastic and striking elements combine for a black and white sketch of two different parts of earth's history. Super ancient but sort of super modern too. (Ancient enough that it's in fine silver over copper coated wire so no polishing agent comes anywhere near these too.)

(Even though a meteorite did not take out the orthoceras, and no species was killed off by the gibeon meteorite in my head this is still called extinction event.)

Orthoceras were ancient cephalopods. They first emerged nearly 500 million years ago and went extinct nearly 200 million years ago, when dinosaurs were just getting started. (To give a vague sense of time here-they're older to most of the dinosaurs than the dinosaurs are to us!)

I love the darker grey of the Gibeon meteorite with the fossil.  More nerding-The patterns you see on the meteorite are called Widmanstatten lines. They are the result of the metal cooling over huge periods of time. I've read that the pattern is from nickel and iron based minerals cooling at a rate of *one* degree every *million* years. Scientists have dated the Gibeon meteorite to around 4 *billion* years old.

Sorry, just got this. I do in theory, it depends on if I feel I can execute what you want and if I can get my hands on the right gems :)
