No Regrets

The Regretsy-sponsored Holiday Regrets shop has been up for a bit over an hour, I've drank a bottle of cheap red wine, and one of my pieces has already sold! Lincoln Park Sellout is currently featured at the TOP of the shop, which of course made me moist in the pants, and I've watched views of my shop's items absolutely skyrocket. It's all too exciting. I need more wine.

Humans Helping Humans

I'm an advocate of people helping people in whatever ways are available to them. We all have something to give, and I'm lucky enough to have a treasure trove full of original jewelry with which to do what I please. It's one of the fun parts of being an independent designer.

Miss Mary Max, that tidal force behind the blog of the same name, asked for my assistance in driving donations to the Blogging For Sofia campaign, which you'll remember I contributed to in an earlier post. We schmoozed, we collabo-ed, we decided on a piece, and now it will go to one lucky person with a little to give to Sofia's treatment and a huge heart. Wanna win? Click here above for details.

Asphalt Rodeo

For the boldest among us, two large faceted raven black Chinese crystals (1" x .75") hang dangerously by sterling silver jump rings from two surgical steel earring hooks. There's sexiness in simplicity, and complexity to be found in the sleek.

Dew Me

Two 16mm brilliantly faceted silver hand-cut Chinese crystals are the definition of bling, spinning along a sterling silver headpin and each dangling from two sterling silver cross chains. Each is encircled by a flat 2" steel hoop, and the whole affair hangs from a surgical steel earring hook.

I haiku, do you?

Many thanks to all the Lad's fans, who've submitted these haikus as entries in LNF's Haiku Contest, commemorating a milestone 200 Facebook fans! As I can't find a suitable "voting" application, I'll be randomly choosing three winners from a fur-lined aviator cap (cause I'm sexy like that). Winners will be announced later today (and your haikus will all probably be stolen shamelessly for my own devious purposes)!

drape yourself in art
eyes are drawn to gems unique
no clothing needed

Inspired of whimsy
Personality abounds.
You KNOW who you are!

You'd best respect this
Fierceness unprecedented
Alchemy unleashed.

Little Bitch Monkey
Shiny baubles and glass balls
crate wonderment

colorful, shiny,
blasting in your fucking face
Lad is that intense.

Back off my sparkles-
Cuz you can't handle the Lad!
You wish you were me!

I'm suffering from
Glamour Asphyxiation
A fab way to go

Yellows, oranges,
Reds, and sultry browns— the hue
of death in bloom.

Lad, you rock my world
with your crazy F' in pearls
just one strand won't do

Drips with elegance
Touched by divine wicked style
Bravo Lad Named Felix

hey, lad named felix
love your fancy pants style
make me spend money...

Beautiful dazzle
your designs one of a kind
you rock my socks lad

Those beautiful beads
Never seen on Regretsy
Too classy for that

pearls, the gem of queens
show me yours, i'll show you mine
I'll love you long time

Where did you get that?
Its one of a kind, thank you.
Lad Named Felix, Hoor.

Raging with glamour
Like a disco hurricane
Clearly it's the Lad. :)

Shimmer, whisper, gleam . . .
Am I hallucinating?
No! That was the Lad.
