Guess what I’m working on?

29 Apr

While this project is certainly wearable, it doesn’t involve wire in the least.

Image

Even so, it called to me this morning and I’ve gotten one major step done.

Image

The next step? Oh yeah, it involves copious amounts of black glitter. Awwwwww yeahhhhhh………..

Pedro is SO patient with me

12 Apr

God bless him, Pedro is an astonishingly patient model.

Image

There are moments, however, that I don’t believe are his favorites.

Image

Thankfully, he can nap on the job. Or at least get comfortable.

Image

No kitties were harmed in this photoshoot. Annoyed, yes, but not harmed.

It’s swell that he can be paid in snuggles and tuna, too. 😀

New Bracelet! Also…..guess what I’ve got?

10 Apr

A couple of years ago I found out that I have a swell little blood disorder called Factor Five Leiden. All it really means is that my superpower is blood clotting (and here I just wanted to see through clothes or leap tall buildings or something!), but now that I know I have it, it warrants special attention be paid in certain situations. Namely long flights on airplanes, long periods of bedrest – sedentary excess. 

I’d figured that at some point I’d need to wear an emergency bracelet to advise medical personnel of my condition in the event of some horrendous awfulness, and when I checked out my options online, it was clear that something better had to be made.

So here it is!

A lightweight, snazzy and stylish medical emergency bracelet! 

My good friends at QBE Engraving (http://www.qbetags.com) provide the custom-engraved medical alert tag, and I fashion some crazy shiny chainmaille to turn it into a bracelet!

Check it out in my Etsy shop here:

Earrings!!!!!

It’s an earring-y kind of day here at Wirewear! Of course, it helps that I have some gorgeous daffodils that were just screaming to be a background for some photos, and a rare occurrence (actual SUNSHINE) – it’s a photographic opportunity I just had to take advantage of. 😀 Enjoy!

My reluctant model

My reluctant model

Pedro is once again serving as my jewelry model, though he’s feeling shy today apparently.

I prefer to think that he’s reveling in wearing this chainmaille collar, and gazing out the window at his kingdom, since he’s now awash with badassery.

It was full, and I didn’t spill a drop. :)

When your coffee mug is as big as your face, you know its going to be a productive day.
