Lotus Carroll1,775,891This is the Event for our April Self Portrait Challenge: "Wet."

(The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) *Please read all rules (scroll down).* _Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified._ *Tips & Inspiration* There are so many possibilities for this theme - will you be underwater, in the rain, or soaking in the tub? Maybe riding some ocean waves or drowning in a lake? The possibilities are endless!

If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything.  Thanks to @111397628815301589258, one of our talented Moderators, for the header image on this Event! *Sponsor* This month's sponsor is @101789561086090624750!

Item choice inspired by desire to sleep, but mostly unable to due to sunburn. (It's fine until I move...!)

Larger than the Broken Tree Pendant or earrings, the Broken Tree Talisman is hand-crafted in fine silver in-house, one at a time.

Even the clasp and fine silver accent bead are made by hand, especially for this piece. The cord is genuine Nappa leather - a bit of a splurge as far as necklace cords go - but worth every penny. Soft leather over a solid, cotton cord, complete with stitching detail, your Talisman will hold it's shape through years of wear.

Secured with sterling silver end caps and that beautiful, custom-designed and handcrafted clasp, this piece is a gorgeous addition to your jewelry collection. And whether you wear it as one piece of many layers, a single piece with an outfit that needs a long piece to complete it, or as the final piece for a moonlit dance in the forest, the Broken Tree Talisman is sure to remind you that we're all the more beautiful for having... more »

Day 1 of no hot water has been quite an adjustment. We're boiling/heating water in pots for washing up and dishes. It sucks a lot. Calling the plumber people soon.
I know its going to cost more than I can immediately afford so I've started a fundraiser to try to help. https://www.gofundme.com/byronrempel

I'm also pimping my store ... maybe you need some #zombie #cat art in your home: http://bit.ly/byronshorde

The Broken Tree Talisman necklace in fine silver, with wee bitty matching clasp.

Genuine, butter-soft black Napa leather cord with stitching detail, handcrafted fine silver bead, matching hand crafted fine silver clasp and findings, and with little sterling end caps on the end of the leather.

Pendant comes in at just under 1.5", before the jump ring. 27" long leather cord, measuring about 28" long with clasp. I wanted this one to hang long; maybe a piece for layering, or for an outfit that needs something simple with a long line, or maybe just for for those moonlight dances in the woods. ;)

Will be on AbigailMarkov.com as soon as I get final photos done.

Better.

#NoteToJewelers: The inclusions. I know. Ideally, take it out and do it again. Clean it out better. More water when finishing, probably, too. Ugh. It's fully dry before firing, so might be metal clay out gassing.

Two more Flash Fiction pieces framed and under resin.

Steve thinks we've finally gotten the hang of framing these. It involves a lot of custom wood working and a significant amount of silicone, and no two are the same, but we got these done in about four days. I put the last coat of resin on this morning.

I keep threatening to ask that we frame the whole series, so I can list them on the website for sale. Right now, they are all stacked in boxes, unframed. (Framed they go for about $350-400. These two are gifts, though.)

I need to etch the brass name plates still. Back to work with me.

30 Designs in 30 Days Challenge
October 7, Day 7

Today's design inspiration
This one's a little lengthy, so please bear with me.

Friday morning, news of the coming storm had me thinking of rain, so I sketched up several rain oriented designs. We had a couple friends over for dinner and a movie, so I didn't get down to the studio till Friday had rolled into Saturday.

Before I went, I checked in on the storm. At 1:30 AM, Reuters reported that 877 people had died in Haiti. 877 people dead. And here I was thinking about the rain this storm might send my way. When I sat down in my studio, I couldn't focus on my design. All I could think about was 877 people were dead for no good reason.

The next thing I knew, I had grabbed a loop of silver wire, and started snipping tiny pieces into a bowl. It's amazing how little time... more »

30 Designs in 30 Days Challenge

Today's design inspiration
This one's a little lengthy, so please bear with me.

Friday morning, news of the coming storm had me thinking of rain, so I sketched up several rain oriented designs. We had a couple friends over for dinner and a movie, so I didn't get down to the studio till Friday had rolled into Saturday.

Before I went, I checked in on the storm. At 1:30 AM, Reuters reported that 877 people had died in Haiti. 877 people dead. And here I was thinking about the rain this storm might send my way. When I sat down in my studio, I couldn't focus on my design. All I could think about was 877 people were dead for no good reason.

The next thing I knew, I had grabbed a loop of silver wire, and started snipping tiny pieces into a bowl. It's amazing how little time it takes to work those wire cutters 877 times. I had to stop a couple of times to flex my fingers, but I was done in just a few minutes. How many minutes did it take Matthew to take 877 lives?

I had no idea what I would do with these bits of silver that were such a poor, spur of the moment reaction to such a devastating tragedy. I considered wrapping them up and discarding them, calling it a day. I sat there for a good while, doing nothing, my thoughts scrambled. Finally, and I'm not sure why, this came to me. I knew all 877 pieces wouldn't stay with the piece. Some would be lost after the fire, some after the kiln, some in the acid bath, many more to the polishing wheel, and even more to the final hammer. In the end, probably half remained on the cuff.

When I was finished, it was already near 7:30 AM, and I could hear Allison stirring. I took the piece upstairs to show her, and to tell her this story. I told her that I didn't know if I could offer it for sale, but that if I did, I would be compelled to donate a big piece of the proceeds to a relief fund. We talked about it this afternoon, and came up with this:

I will make a limited run of this design.
50% donated to J/P Haitian Relief Organization
The 877 bits of silver will be a recurring theme in future pieces designed for disaster relief.

Description
1" wide

Bright copper embraces the bits of sterling silver, perhaps bringing a bit of beauty in the wake of a horrible event.

Three wide open, featherweight copper hoops dance with each other in effortless abandon.

Like a twisted puzzle, each hoop goes through the other two as well as the solid center piece, before every single piece is fused closed. They typically hang flat, swinging open when you move.

Your choice of handcrafted fine silver (20 AWG) or fine gauge (22 AWG) niobium ear hooks.

Length: 2.25 inches long, from top of ear hook to bottom of the third hoop.

Successfully weeded from clay sheets: bronze, fine silver, and copper Cleo earrings. Let's hope I don't slip up when sanding and break a piece. They are so fragile at this stage.

Sometimes you have to literally cut your losses. I've repaired links, but too many keep breaking or I spot weak fuses I didn't catch before, all in an earlier section. Because I've fused multiple batches of links on this chain, I have an idea of what's wrong... so I'm cutting about 10 inches of work off this chain, and fusing fresh links.

It's actually more efficient and smarter to start an entire section all over again than it is to try to repair and send out a chain I'm not completely happy with.

(No, this kind of imperfection is not part of handmade jewelry. Nor is it acceptable to me - I won't ship shoddy work.)

Two months and counting on this one.

The Featherweight Cleo!

I love the look of wearing earrings, but rarely wear them because I hate feeling the weight of them on my ears. (It's a sensory distraction that I just can't tune out.)

So, I took the Cleo design, made it thinner, a little smaller, and a whole lot lighter. They still dangle and sway, they still catch the light and sparkle, but they do it without feeling like your ears are being dragged off your head.

Just don't forget to take them off before you go to bed - ear wires can be pokey when you lay on them.

I figure these will go for $35, roughly. There is a need for light, comfortable earrings, and thanks to months of trial and error, I can make these relatively easily. (Assuming Satan, my die cutting machine, cooperates that day.)

Hey friends,

Do any of you know where I could get a fair price for my engagement ring? I bought it for about $2000 12 years ago. It's platinum, with a .31c certified diamond (E coloring, and VVS2 clarity).

I'm in a desperate situation and any help here would be deeply appreciated.

Steve's been posting daily updates about the house - details about the kind of work that we'll be tackling ourselves, cool bits about the housee/property, that kind of thing - and he's up to 11 updates so far. (Scroll past the image, and click Updates.)

It's a definite fixer upper, and we've got to repair floors, get an A/C unit installed (it kinda sorta has one to speak of, sorta), repair doors, and get an exterminator in there before we can move in. We may repair doors as we move in, but the spider and moth infestation is too bad to move in without calling in a professional. I'm not afraid of bugs, and hell, I save spiders, but this... this is something from a horror movie. Not quite Lord of the Rings, but still pretty creepy. (He hasnt posted pictures of bugs. Yet. :shudder:)

The third 24x36" canvas reproduction is up. <3

I work on the website when my brain or body is too fried to work on jewelry; I've gotten a lot done this week. Things have been a bit hectic with trying to buy a serious fixer upper and getting ready to DIY move right after school started.

A thank you to everyone that continue to support us in this endeavor and an update to the house. We will be closing around the 12th of September and have a lot of work ahead of us still. We have saved up to replace the air conditioning system (this was not a surprise) which is original and apparently when it quit working several years ago the owners decided they would make do with window units. For all the damage that was caused to the window sills by the window units and the cost of all the window units they could have repaired the AC. That's just me thinking out loud.

While I've been working, Steve posted an update on the roof, with pictures of a bit of the damage we'll need to repair over on GoFundMe. Click through, scroll past the picture, and click "Updates" - it's the first one there.

It's worth noting that this house stood through Hurricane Charlie - it lost some shingles, and we suspect that this is what started this damage. The original owner didn't repair the shingles that came off well, and it caused the leak and beam damage.

That said, these beams are thicker and heavier than standard - they exceed code requirements for Florida! So, once repaired, the roof would mosty likely still survive a Cat 4 hurricane chewing it's way across the state again!
