This was started by my husband.

It's not something I talk about a lot, but... we've been through hell and back, and are still fighting. We have the chance at a place of our own, but it needs a new roof, and the quotes are much, much higher than anticipated.

I'm not one to ask for help like this, but if you'd be willing to share, I know that he, and I, would appreciate the signal boost.

We're not dreaming of a mansion - but hopefully starting a small non-profit farm, and a place where I can get back to painting and making jewelry with space to work.

But first, we need a roof over our heads.

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:)

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!

Started a new Shanna (you know, that coin pearls and silver circles) set. The coin pearls I have on hand are slightly smaller than the last ones, so the silver parts are sized down to match, too. That means more parts overall, and a slightly more delicate feel. Not by much, but enough that I notice. Bright side? The inside is a half inch, even, which is definitely easier to remake.

Should I be listing pre-orders for this design now? The last time I made something and didn't expect anyone to want the design, everyone wanted one! (The copper and silver Twist rings!)

Should I be listing pre-orders for this design now? The last time I made something and didn't expect anyone to want the design, everyone wanted one! (The copper and silver Twist rings!)

Working on the patina for a pair of copper Dancing Hoops earrings with Firescale Patina.

So close to caught up on orders!! Well, on schedule might be the better way of putting it. One order is going to take me a while longer yet (chain, of course) so the goal is just to be on target for completion on that one.

Made some progress on new Flame Painted Ribbon Cuffs, and am designing the next Chaos Cuff... Keeping fingers crossed I'll get to a point where I'm comfortable starting on new designs soon. Really soon, for my sake!

Replacing a link in a delicate double chain that wouldn't have held up as well as I want. Spotted the weak link while checking the whole chain for uneven links, so opting to replace it. It'll be some time, but to risk a broken link is risking the quality of my chain work & reputation.

No Bueno! ;)

Back by popular demand - white and dark green Simple Pearl Drops.

I found a temporary source of white pearls, and found a small handful of green ones. (I also found other pearls that I'd love to get my hands on for other designs, but that's neither here nor there.)

New to the shop, but an old favorite: Florida Sunset, from Color Commentary!

(I've had one hell of a headache today, so I'm squeezing in computer work when I the headache won't let me work on jewelry.)

What do you think? Who loves pink and orange and yellows?

This is what 118 inches of single chain looks like.

For a wholesale order and collaboration, with just a few steps left before it's finished and shipped out.

My wrists are officially sore.

When I hit a lull in jewelry, I REALLY need to get more prints listed. I have at least 100 I could get in there, and how many do I actually have available?

FOUR.

Oy, Abby. OY.

Inspired by stories of an octopus escaping his tank at night, Escape is an adorable but still just a little evil design for the days when you’re not quite committed to being full on evil, or just want to escape too.

Dancing Hoops! Three wide open, featherweight copper hoops dance with each other with effortless abandon.

Like some 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. Fine silver shown.

//Soon on AbigailMarkov.com

Two more hook and eye clasps to make today, and then I'm caught up on findings needed for non-wholesale orders! These two are in the tumbler while I work on Gyroscopes from Abigailmarkov.com .

Cuffs are in progress outside too. Rings are sealing next. And then packing for shipping.

(Weekends are my busy days usually.)

Just putting the chain together, second of the day. Will shape most of the links once I know I have the length needed - a bit of a cheat that I can get away with on singles.

Testing this style of end caps for the tiny double chains on my practice chain.

The brush is #000, for those who know brushes. It's my favorite for this kind of work, and amusingly enough, I got it off of Amazon... listed as a nail art brush. I was going to use it for nail are, but it turns out that nail art brushes are fantastic for metal clay and enamel work! ;)

Calling it a night here. These four will see more polishing later. Even with a face mask, my sinuses are irritated.
Time to make dinner for Steve and I and then rest dem bones.

I know it doesn't look like I've done much based on social media posts, but I've been keeping secrets. ;)
