New fabric covered button brooches. Also known as badges. Or pins. Same same!
These are so fun to make! I make them in sets, so you'll never have just one being lonely all by itself. I personally like wearing badges in groups, especially the little ones. It's like wearing a tiny piece of artwork on your outfit!
I made some special for Easter too! Bunnies and chickies and cuteness OH MY!
Like I mentioned in the previous post, I just got an iPhone. But what I forgot to mention was that I posted that last entry from said iPhone. It's all rather confusing to me, like... it's a little computer? But if you turn it sideways it changes?? Is it a phone??? AM I IN THE MATRIX???? *deep breath*
So anywho, I can't seem to post pics from my fancypants new phone/computer/SKYNET device... ... onto any kind of website, which is a shame because it takes amazing photos! I will persevere and figure it out though...
So for now I will show you some of the wonderfully brilliant and fantastic earrings that are NOW ON SALE in my Etsy store! :D
Fancy ridiculous names included! I am not a fan of having to name items when I list them, I feel so hokey I want to roll my eyes at myself as I'm typing. But that makes it hard to see the screen properly...
Here I also listed the prices before and after the jaw-dropping discount YOU'RE WELCOME!!!
^^^ "Lolly Bag" Were $18 Now $10.80
^^^ "Hark Now Hear" Were $12 Now $7.20
^^^ "Coco Pebbles" Were $14 Now $8.40

DISCLAIMER: I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED HERE, MY BLOG ISN'T MEANT TO HAVE MORE HOLES THAN GRAMMA'S PANTIES. I ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY. IT IS CLEARLY SKYNET.
So I got an iPhone yesterday, this is a very big deal for me. I am not one to be up to date with the latest gizmos and gadgets or anything designed to make ones life remotely easier. But this is working out great guns so far! That was on purpose, I want to see if they will show up in the blog haha
So anyways, I also gave my Etsy shop a bit of the old flipsy-doo and I think it's looking rather spiffy now! I was sick of looking at the same old order of things... Also, I have marked ALL my earrings down by FOURTY PERCENT off the marked price! Am I crazy? No, but you are if you don't go check out the sale! See what I did there...?
So, in amongst all the new fun things I made for the Pink Parlour show in LA last week, I also resurrected some old favourites. About 3 or 4 years ago I made some super groovy creature pendants out of my trusty polymer clay and... love, sweat and tears! ;) Every animal has a Swarovski crystal diamente eye, which sparkles and winks "hello!" They were really popular when I used to sell at the Valley Markets in Brisbane, but they got left behind in my (admittedly unplanned) move to the USA. My lovely brother posted them over to me a while ago, and they got a fresh coat of varnish and some spiffy new packaging specially for their LA debut! They will be listed very soon on Mad Lane's Etsy page, which, in case you forgot, is -----> RIGHT THIS WAY <------
And below is a sneak peek for you at what you can expect...
* Birdy conga line, last dance before the big show!
*All nice and smart in their little plastic suits! Dino & Birdy party time! Cactii welcome too!
I'm very pleased with how they came out, especially the tags! But I worry that it makes them look a bit mass-produced? I just want to keep them spic'n'span and not get all scuffed! I put alot of work into each creature, I want them to stay in tip top shape! *fret*
Anywho, I hope you like them!
PS: If you want to refer anyone to my bloggy-blog here, feel free! Please and thank you :D xxxooo
Here's a picture of my cat having an existential identity moment to sweeten the deal...
Hello lovers, I'm still here and making lots of fun and colourful jewellery bits 'n' bobs! Last weekend I was at the Pink Parlour Festival in Santa Anita LOS ANGELES. Oooh Ahhh fancyyyyyy!
I had alot of fun, sold some stuff and was rendered partially deaf on account of being right near the 5 foot tall speakers next to the stage. BUT! I did get a very good view of this lovely lady, and I can fully appreciate her amazing voice...
I made a slew of new items to try out at the show, and a few of them went over really well! Like the rings and pins I made from my stamped clay designs...
Of course I didn't think to take pictures until the end of the day, so at least half of them were sold by then... I swear! :P I really wasn't sure if they would be popular, but they were! So alot more of them to come, that's for certain :)
This weekend I will be selling at the Whole Foods Artist Market on Upper State St in Santa Barbara! It's always a good day out, and lots of delish food very nearby.
