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.

Am going to do a copy-paste from an answer to someone else who asked about this recently; please to forgive, but my head's a bit overloaded just now. Anyhow, here:

There is not a catalog or gallery page. I've experimented with them, but they haven't worked as well as this method in my particular case. I got feedback from many people, some of which surprised me, and decided to stick with what already did work.

(Here's the artistic blather about the choice: The feedback pointed out that coming to the pieces through pictures and coming to them through the titles are quite different experiences. It turned out that sticking to a text-based interface wound up reaffirming the word-based nature of something I'm doing with my art, which is serving a storyteller/poet/reader community, self-selected for the love of text. Also, doing it the text-based way gets me poems from Jo Walton and many other folks as a byproduct, and I'd be really sad to lose those.)

The only way to see all of them at once is in person at my table at WisCon or another convention, I'm afraid.

tl;dr: Alas, there is not. The artist regrets bugging some people with this interface, but it's probably going to stay this way.

Thanks for the explanation! I'd always wondered but worried it would be rude to ask.

Totally cool to ask. I should probably make a FAQ though, and link to it from all sale posts. :-)
