The Pilot's Daughter

I have been having some pretty terrible luck with cameras recently but, I felt the need to share these new pieces so I finally went out and got new batteries. Again. Let’s hope this set lasts a little longer than the last. I finished up the steampunk necklace from the other week – it had been bothering me a bit; it just seemed incomplete and undramatic so I added a second layer of chainmail, this one is gunmetal.  I love the look of antique copper and gunmetal, unfortunately the copper does not show up very well against the hemp necklace display but if you look closely, you can tell that the small rings are coppery. I’m not totally sold on the three  charms on the triangle but without them it, again, seems unfinished. I could definitely use some feedback on this one.

The next piece was inspired by my birthday present and the color combination and variety of beads and colored jumprings makes me happy. These are Skullcandy Ti headphones and they are VERY nice. I never knew an iPod could actually sound so good, with REAL bass and all! This particular set is a collaboration with Tokidoki, one of my absolute favorite designers. I just adore the combination of bright, vivid colors with skulls (and killer sound). Something about his designs is vary chaotic and happy with appeals to me deeply. My ideal mindset is to be carefree in the face of the chaos that is life; sometimes I achieve this and sometimes I fail miserably but these headphones (and now this necklace) remind me of my goal and help cheer me up so I can realize it.

This one of a kind necklace features a wire wrapped white plastic skull, purple fossil beads, striped and frosted furnace glass, silver fiberoptic stars, yellow and green Muzkui glass cubes, a handmaid (faux) toggle clasp, silver chain, blue and fuschia 1/2 inch jump rings, a re-purposed pink sparkly star hair clip (w/wire wrapped blue glass cube), and a black wooden tab. I say faux toggle clasp because, although it almost works as one, the bar is slightly too long and so I have added an adorable silver star clasp above it to make life easier on myself.

This necklace went through about a dozen variations before I was finally completely satisfied and I wish I’d had a working for the process; it was a really fun project and I got to use a bunch of odds and ends I had lying around.  I’d love to hear what you think!
