Quick Wednesday post. I had a great time at Boskone but it’s taking me a little while to recover. Even though I think I may be the only person at the convention whose flight wasn’t cancelled. May I always be so lucky.
So here’s more stuff that I’ve made/acquired, this time in the category of OOOH SPARKLIES. It’s my weakness.
At some point I acquired some pearls. (This is another thing that happens in the SCA. You get gifted with the most marvelous things like fabric and jewelry and odds and ends.) I had them for years, waiting for inspiration, which finally struck: I had a Renaissance gown with no jewelry to go with it. Eeek! So I made a necklace:
And another one:
I love them! I’m glad I waited to use the pearls because these turned out so nice, and I have a feeling they’ll be versatile and I’ll get to wear them with lots of different outfits.
This one, I didn’t make, but acquired at the Boskone art show. It’s by Priscilla Olson, and I grabbed it up because I think it’ll go with both my period outfits and my steampunk wardrobe.
SPARKLIES! It’s a bit of an addiction, but it’s one I indulge in because I like to support the artists who make these pretties, and it’s wearable, which speaks to my practical side.
