    optimisticcynic added the project Rain Drop Earrings
    3cb2f10d83995a1efb8a3c6941d0c7a47cd40a88_listing

    Two inches of fine gauge crocheted silver toned copper wire. Dangling delicately from the bottom is a little raindrop, threatening to fall with each slight nod of the head.

    optimisticcynic added the project Metal Victorian Ruffle Cuff
    9801844a5f732b417b84caf760fa49eefe1710a2_listing

    Funky, yet classic, and one of my favs! I wanted this cuff to call to mind the lace adorning the sleeve of a victorian gown. This piece is full of wonderful, eye catching texture. The ruffle is cro…

    optimisticcynic added the project Stormy Glass Beads Necklace
    634530b9750eb602bd61cf1853681d9b372925f2_listing

    If storm clouds could crystalize and form beads, I would imagine that they’d look a lot like the ones used here. Six stormy glass beads add subtle sparkle to a craft-wire worked chain. Handmade hoo…

    optimisticcynic commented on the project The Skirt Shirt

    There WAS a picture of the back . . . I decided not to put it up because it made me look really naked, it’s just 2 straps really. It sounds really silly and prudish though now, haha.

    Crocheted nylon thread bracelet, with shell and stone seed beads. The nylon thread is very strong beading thread. I crocheted the underside of the cuff using the nylon, and then attached 10 beaded …

    optimisticcynic added the project Shell Necklace
    3540904ad6c782083aba66721adf78805fa1a5f9_listing

    I’ve waiting impatiently for the weather to be warm enough to forget the frigid winter of these past few months, and melt my worries away in the sun (with sunscreen on, of course), by lounging on t…

    Silver tarnish-resistant wire, wrapped with a fine copper wire. Acrylic aqua beads dangle from each wire chain loop. Looks beautiful with a wide open neckline, or over top a turtleneck.

    E0905eb8dec66c34847ddf9192c8470b8bf12c4e_listing

    When I got this it was originally a skirt. The seams ran right down the front, causeign the stripes to fall in an unflattering diagonal pattern right accross the butt. It’s only real redeaming feat…

    optimisticcynic added the project Pink Fish Eggs Bracelet
    D347de1f32ea8c83be5d303eb4ec19161d0ba337_listing

    A fun cuff bracelet with crocheted backing and pearlized pink beads chain crocheted in the front. . . it reminded me of pink fish eggs caught in a net – hence the name :-)
