This is the grand list of everything. To see only the newest things, check for New Shinies posts in recent entries. (Please note: sometimes those newest shinies are too new to be listed here, if I just put them up.)

All the shinies!Collapse )

There are a lot of things in the world I can't do anything about. Some of them are things that it isn't my job to do something about. Others are things I'd give a lot to be able to stop, like people I love having awful things happen to them, but I don't have the power to stop those things from happening.

About the only thing I'm sure I can do is make good art.

OK, then. Off I go to the workbench. I hope to have things to show you soon. With any luck I can get photographs tomorrow before I have to go to physical therapy.

Currently in progress:
bunches of earrings
a linked necklace for someone who needs it
and more to be listed

ArtLog: a few new shinies, because there I was, putting beads away....

ArtLog: a good day in the workshop (work in progress)

So yeah, it's been a rainy day, and I've been up in the workshop, and now there are two new pendants and a pair of earrings. The earrings have shades of grey and grey-blue and a sort of smoky lavender; maybe it's the rainclouds. One of the pendants is called "Unnatural Histories," and has a huge polished chunk of turitella. The other is "Bird with a Word in her Head, II" and has opal matrix and sterling silver and a lot of tiny pearls.

Also made progress on the "Bird with a Word in her Head" necklace, which is... interesting. You'll see.

Work is a great goodness and a comfort.

ArtLog: SHINY SALE in progress now

Yep, I marked EVERYTHING down, even the brand-new shinies that went up this afternoon.

(It's been an interesting week or two, and I need to trade art for cash that I can fritter away on vet bills and doctor bills. Have added two things to my collection of Stuff My Silly Body Gets Up To: degenerative spinal disease [C3 through C7, at this point] and something's up with my kidneys. Silly body. And poor Malt-kitty is having a time of it. Anyhow, time to MAKE GOOD ART and to have a sale.)

ArtLog: prior art (all the sold shinies)

I put up a list of sold shinies over at Dreamwidth, because it can handle a post that long and LJ cannot. The list is necessarily incomplete, but I am having fun adding to it. (If your shinies are not listed there, let me know and I will add them -- but give me a week or so first, since I am going through old entries in reverse order.)

Edited to add: PLEASE NOTE: THIS LIST IS LESS THAN 10% COMPLETE. YOUR SHINIES ARE PROBABLY MISSING. FEAR NOT.

If you want to give me the names of them, or better yet if you have names and links, I will add them in. Otherwise, I hope to find them in the backwards search, which will be followed by the convention invoice book search, and some other searches.

So far, I'm back to December 2012 in my LJ listings... and I started this in 1998. So it's gonna be a while, but it's worth trying, yah? Even though I know I've lost some names, having a list is a grand thing, and full of good memories.
