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.

Oh, it's fun to see these all together! I have a bit of a mental list running of pieces that I'd go for if my budget either magically expanded or there was a massive sale — "Audience with the Queen", for example, has so much dragon bone I'd like to curl possessively over how the poppy jasper activates the rest; "The Dragon Who Wanted To Be A Boy Scout" & "'Recapitulate this,' said the dragon" have that glorious snakeskin jasper (and I love love love how the secondary stones chosen there bring out the scaled wonder of them — 'snakeskin' indeed!), which likely explains a lot about why "Strolling In Faeryland" hits a similar purple glorious button for me. I know someone who would look magnificent with "Keep Me In Mind" on her ears, which makes the title make me laugh every time I see it. And oh, "Ladybug Theology" and "It Was Simpler!" — I don't usually like explicit callbacks to non-abstracted stuff in jewelery, but you nail how to have those as enhancement and commentary on the main stones instead of trying to overdo it going the other way around, and just — *flails* ladybug theology is a magnificent title, and your whole honeybadger series makes the second one exquisitely funny to me (you might want to consider linking to that project post in the summaries for the pieces from it included here — that extra context really does take it up to the next level).

Anyway, thanks for sharing; I find these inspiring despite the mismatch between my dragon appetites and my wallet sense!

Excellent point. Have added Honey Badger links. (That was SUCH a fun day!)
