I HAVE MOVED THINGS TO ETSY. You should find almost everything over at https://www.etsy.com/shop/LionessElise. Thank you, and big love to you all! See you over there -- and I hope to keep seeing you around Dreamwidth as well, because I plan to be posting more cool stuff about beads and rocks and jewelry techniques.

If you're browsing for pretty shiny writing inspiration and/or looking for already sold pieces, many of them can be viewed at ArtLog: Things I Have Made.

If you want to find my journal, I'm at https://elisem.dreamwidth.org/.

If you're looking for me on Twitter, I'm LionessElise.

If you want Beads of the Month or would like to support various benevolent conspiracies of art, save up for shinies on the installment plan, or just like encouraging the artisan, I have a Patreon these days: https://www.patreon.com/elisem It's all very exciting.

"Her Kind of Country" - those are my kind of earrings :)

Please to be expecting an email from me... Different Tiger, Same Lady has to go to my ex. I'll explain why in the email.

And there may be more things... not sure... the unemployed thing may be trumping shiny purchases for myself.

OMG. So many things are having me go ooooo.... (and I'm using your amazing shinies for delaying working on the house! but I figure it will have been worth having to seriously focus on said house when I'm done!)

Interstellar Forestry Studies is beautiful, fascinating, and gorgeous. Thankfully, not something I'd wear... but oh it's exquisite!

And The Planet Promise is nifty!

Two Stories About the Same Forest have some serious stories in them!

The Witch Disappears is utterly remarkable.

Thank goodness Considering is already sold; you should have heard the tone in my voice when I said "Oh.... that's cooool."

(Oh heck.... just found something else that made me go Ohhhh... and hit me in the gut... you're getting more email)

Translated from the Original just got an "oof".

Cloud Magic just got another "oof".

Far Forests gave me pause and thoughtfulness and contemplating what's in there.

What is it with me and the lampwork this time 'round? The Life Emphatic really IS!

Love the stones in Old-Fashioned Treasure Map

More stories in The Way Dragons Tell It...

Doing Science in Dreams got a Tee Hee. Go figure!

In the "If I had unlimited budget" department: The Real Mountain, which still moves me on such a deep level. Another member of said department is True for You simply because it's gorgeous.

And another thoughtful "Hmmmm" for When History Found Us, which looks like so many mysteries swirling around...

Here endeth the Cubby gushing over the shinies....

Translated from the Original

When they came down to the
Water/shore/spaceport/edge
They embarked and took ship for
The lagoon/Lacuna/Lagos/ the ledge
The/a sun was occluded/eclipsed
Glinting
There was no doubt, none any more,
Hinting
...
In the archipelago/far settlement/sea-carved land
Only their footprints, dissolving in sand.

Oh! What an excellent thing to find this morning. Thank you, Jo.

(For the benefit of people who may read this after that necklace is sold, I'll leave a link to photos of "Translated from the Original".)


I think I just left this comment anonymously, but it is an interesting coincidence that February 22 is the day I'm officially made rector of my church. So a commemorative/good omen shiny thing might be a good idea … if I can make up my mind between them ...

(Also, if you decide you want to look at the cross pendants, if that's your flavour, let me know. I just did another one, rather graceful swoops of wire around a grey-green stone and a celtic cross.)

Considering the Source: is the labradorite really as green as that looks?

Pretty much. I wanted it to go with the glass nautilus beads, and it does pretty well.

"The Rainbow When She's Quiet" is incredibly gorgeous. I shall sigh wistfully at it and hope that I somehow inherit a teensy fortune or something.

I'm feeling some love for Occam's Spoon, but I should really sleep on it. Thanks for keeping these lovely things posted. :)

I am stunned that Brewer's Arts remains unclaimed... and trying to convince the Universe that it's utterly out of my budget. For the moment, at least, the convincing is working, but I'm not sure how long that will last!

Thank you for the bolding; great idea!

Are "miracle beads" the same thing as Polaris beads?

Not the same thing. Miracle beads are these weird shimmery things that look deeper than it's possible for them to be, sort of. Or else... um, italicized colorshine? Dang. Synaesthesia makes description challenging some days. Think candy apple metalflake shimmer, only beads, kind of?

OK, so more depth... the Polaris are more about surface, matte/shimmer. Thanks!

Good to see you at 4th Street.

I have shown the husband Still She Dances on the Shore. It'll likely be my Christmas present this year, if you still have it in the fall. We have bookmarked the page.

Thank you for making such a beautiful, beautiful work of art.

Oh HELLO, "Sharp". If you hadn't sold, you would be mine RIGHT NOW.

Eeep! My last comment was marked as spam; I just wanted to say that the page for Pyriscence actually has an image of "The Wind, The Water, The Mountain" on it.

And seriously, these are all so lovely.

Thank you for catching that! Fixed now.

Oh, but Unexpected Flowering is gorgeous!

Was feeling a bit poorly so I thought, "I know! I'll look at elisem's shinies list and feel better!"

Which worked, of course... and now I have "The Dance-Card", "Dark Light", and "Bending the Narrative" up on my desktop for future oo'ing and ah'ing purposes. Oh, and "Watching Jacob's Ladder" possibly for a certain woman in my life though not yet of the appropriate... might be a thing for having next year though. Will ponder...

The Physics of Nostalgia is maybe my favorite name ever. I also love the Invention of Wine and Poets earrings, and Love and the Machine

Congratulations on the move to Etsy. I really like being able to see thumbnails!
