Some of us are weird girls...

Some of you may be wondering what happened to the Girls Are Weird [XL/XS] series.
They out to be listed on my Etsy shop by now. And they're not.
The owner of this lovely local shop Aparências came my way and asked for some of my pieces. I showed her this small series of mine and just couldn't resist that look in her eyes as she picked up piece by piece. I had to let them go with her. All of them.
Those in Portugal can stop by for a visit, just click on the picture to go to the site.
As for Etsy, I'll make another set of this series later.
Well, you must agree with me. Some things belong where they are most cherished.

By the way, the first Girls Are Weird [XL/XS] "Welcome Back" is already in the hands of the giveaway winner > Miss Tiffy. Take a look at the post in her blog all about it.
Thank you so much for that Miss Tiffy :)

My Bunny Valentine

He was running late.
The kitten and the teddy bear were finished and ready to go for a couple of weeks but I told them - no way! We must wait for My Bunny Valentine.

So, for all the undecided, the procrastinators, the ones who just met the love of their lives, here's the I'm All Ears [Valentine's Special Edition] series > tomorrow on Etsy.
These sterling silver, gold platted, sanded on the surface, secret keeper rings are all ears for you as usual. But this time you can see a bit of the red paper band with your secret message through a pierced heart detail.
For love is too sweet and heady to stay hidden forever.

Manias em cadeia!

Sorry my friends, this one post goes in portuguese (it's not my fault, it was awfully imposed by the rule makers ;)

Ok, este vai em português para desenferrujar a língua e evitar que as camadas subtis de significados subliminares se percam na tradução.
Obrigada Candybabe por me atirares para esta cadeia maníaca!

Mania 1 > tenho a mania que já fui um pastor alemão (o cão, não o profissional estrangeiro) porque preciso de tarefas a cumprir para me sentir feliz, dou comigo constantemente a arranhar atrás das orelhas (principalmente da direita) e tenho o focinho comprido.
Mania 2 > compro sempre meias iguais, todas, sempre. Tenho horror à sensação de andar à procura "da outra meia". Assim, quaisquer duas são o par perfeito.
Mania 3 > já usei o nick Mania quando era viciada em chats. Normalmente só o usava quando estava numa rampage de adrenalina e queria destruir tudo à minha volta.
Ia, obviamente, para salas que não costumava frequentar, por respeito aos amigos habituais e só atropelava estranhos no geral.
Mania 4 > tenho a mania de comprar uma agenda todos os anos (já comprei a de 2010) mas acabo sempre por quase não a usar e acumular as incontáveis tarefas que tenho em incontáveis layers no meu caótico cérebro.
Mania 5 > tenho a mania que tenho sempre razão, mesmo quando o meu raciocínio já passou para um plano totalmente abstrato que não leva a lado nenhum.

REGRAS: "Cada bloguista participante tem de enunciar 5 manias suas, hábitos muito pessoais que os diferenciem do comum dos mortais. E além de dar ao público conhecimento dessas particularidades, tem de escolher 5 outros bloguistas para entrarem, igualmente, no jogo, não se esquecendo de deixar nos respectivos blogues aviso do recrutamento. Cada participante deve reproduzir este regulamento no seu blogue."

The Frontpage [Round Three]

My Golden Teddy Ring made it to Etsy Frontpage today! No wonder it's already sold ;)
I was working offline all day and could not see it there in real time (I never do) but I always check Craft Cult heart-o-matic with a secret hope for a feature... and here it is > TheGoldenPlague for the third time on the frontpage in another Etsy Admin selection.
Now let's get that little golden creature ready to go his own way :)
Thank you!

The Copy [Final Step]

This is my final object for The Copy Project in the Jewellery Design Laboratory class based on the idea of high heels.
Is it Beauty or Vanity?
A cage or a few inches closer to heaven?
Isn't it freedom when you can choose your own slavery?
And can this be a jewellery piece when you experience it in your body, even if you can not actually wear it?

Giveaway > New Year, New Series

"Welcome back" is the first piece from the Girls Are Weird [XL/XS] series.
In this series, each picture is a print from original drawings of mine, printed in photographic paper and protected with a glass looking resin. The frame is a can bottom hand cut, hand pierced and the silk ribbon around it ends up in a knot holding a twisted sterling silver link. You can wear it around your neck or just hang it on the wall.
A XL pendant or a XS frame, either way, it's your choice :)

And to welcome this new year and new series, I'm giving the first piece to one of you.
Just leave a comment on this post and you are in.
Sunday the 17th January, when I'm exactly 5 months from being an year older, I'll get in touch with the lucky winner.
Meanwhile I'll start listing the rest of the series on my Etsy shop.
Feel very welcome to drop by.

The year has just begun and here's the first Etsy Treasury featuring one of my rings in 2010.
It's called delightful by PianoBenchDesigns and includes my Black Cherry Blossom ring.
Isn't it a lovely collection?

Happy New Year!
