i am gothic ...

recently i acquired a couple of new toys ... namely a hammer and a bench block! you cannot believe how difficult it was for me to find a bench block here. i didn't want to buy it online cos i know the shipping would cost me a bomb. finally a friend told me that a shop in chinatown sold bench blocks and YAY!! i got mine for RM35 (about 10USD) it's small about 3 x 3 inches but it's sufficient. it's better than using another hammer ... yes, that's what i did, i got another hammer and laid it down on its side and used the flat sides as bench block... AY ... the things you do when you're desperate!

and so, i was hammering away on my fat aluminum wires, making curls and swirls like a real happy contractor :) little did i know that these hammered wires could turn into my bohemian gothika collection!

raven indigo
gothic inspired jewelrythese would probably not neccessarily be a lot of people's taste ... but i do love them!! i'm a goth girl!!
maya enigma
gothic inspired jewelryooo ... and dun you just adore the goth names?

essentially mixed media pieces ... i combined my polymer imprints, filigrees, aluminum wires, artistic wires, glass beads and leather (yes, there's leather behind mainly to protect the skin from any sharp points) ... as for the cord, i combined some fiber, normal black necklace cord and metal chain. it's longer than all my other pendants ... raven indigo hangs to the sternum and maya enigma hangs ... ahem ... just in between the boobies :p

well ... i sure hope at least some people would find these nice :) cos these are going into my etsy at 12 midnight tonight ... my time ;)

happy pimping! :)


p/s dun forget my giveaway is still on till saturday ... HERE!!

  2. These necklaces are gorgous, Luthien! I love longer necklaces, since I usually have a scarf around my neck. Maya looks like it has black hair mixed on the cording...too cool!
