I have a new free amigurumi pattern (it’s a surprise!) ready that I’ve been wanting to post forever but I can’t find the right thing to photograph them in. It’s driving me crazy because I really want to share it already! ahhh!
I made a couple bracelets with some beads I’ve had laying around and I really like them! They have the same sliding closure as my macrame bracelets. I’ve been into stacking bracelets lately. I’ve been wearing one of these with one of my gemstone donut macrame bracelets and a friendship bracelet or two! I wish you could see the colors better. I think my camera is having troubles. It’s been really overexposing things for a couple months at least. :(
I’m making another set of tiny cacti! I think I’m gonna give the little one a nub too.
Remember my faded gnomes? I started repainting them. I need to go out and buy a flesh colored paint. And I’m not sure about the beards. They’re just too bright white.
I finally got around to photographing the rest of the bracelets from my last batch. This is really gonna be my last batch for a while, unfortunately. I’m out of nearly everything and need to reorder supplies so badly!
I just listed five new bracelets in the Eclectic Squirrel shop! All $7 or less! Three of them have painted porcelain pieces like the one above. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get those again when I reorder :(
I experimented with different backdrops today. Not really because I wanted to. It’s just that the wood chair that I normally use as a backdrop got pooed on by a bird! :/
So anyway… what do you think? I love pretty ugly things for backdrops. Crumpled up paper, decaying wood, and chipped away paint are my favorites.
I was so happy with the response I got to reopening The Eclectic Squirrel shop (like half my shop was gone in 2 hours! awesome!) that I was motivated to photograph and list some new bracelets that I’ve had sitting around. So please take another peek! There are four new bracelets. And still, nothing over $6! :)
I still have a few more to list but I’ve been keeping busy. I had a custom plush order (pics soon!) and also have a bulk order for bracelets that I’m working on. And I’m going to San Diego tomorrow, for a couple days. So I apologize for the lack of blog posts this week!
I added five new bracelets to the Etsy shop just now! Here’s a preview:
This one is Pyrite (a stone that I’ve never had before):
Another micro macrame bracelet:
I like these because they’re so colorful! They’re much more time consuming to make though, so I don’t make them as often as the donut ones.
I’m so happy! I finally did something that I’ve been wanting to for a while now! I made a custom bracelet listing on Etsy so that you can design one yourself! yay!
Choose a gemstone donut:
Choose your cord color:
And choose your Swarovski crystals:
And then I’ll make it for you! Fun, right?! I’m kinda excited! :D
If you’d like to make one, the listing can be found in my Etsy shop.
