(baleen cut into pieces)
“Okay Caroline, these for now, those for later.” For this project I was given at least 5 spare band aids for my tragic fingers. The upside of this current project is that i've been building some slight arm muscle! I like to call it my man hobby, much like I’m one of the boys except with chicken arms, and a desirous tendency to girly dance after every finished project. Just for the record, i'm way cooler than i sound, i swear!

Materials: shells collected by the ashoonas'. They have, by far the most interesting collection of materials. Whale bone, antler bone, every kind of shell collected on the queen charlotte island, various aminal Ivory. My next upcoming project is using Baleen(part of whale) combined with mamoth ivory.

Materials: delica beads, tanned caribou hide
Last sunday my friend Laura and I shared a booth, selling our handmade goodies alongside quite a few other local artist'. Positively inspiring! I'm always so fascinated by watching other artist' at work; in viewing thier different/similar approaches and techniques with similar/different mediums and material.
This here is a small branch that Laura had found and stuck into a pottery mold, used to hang our jewelery from! Such a good idea! I might just do that also; for hanging my own stuff at home!

My good friend Sibila, who's getting married this summer in Serbia!!!, wanted a fushia wedding dress~ in which i thought was very appropriate! She's got a lot spunk and personality, so with that she'd totally rock it. Her fiance and family however.. weren't so keen.
SO! i offered to make her some fushia earrings intead to spiff and sparkle her up a little. <3
materials : antler bone, swarvoski crystals, delica beads

On the numerous suggestions of "you should make it a headband"
Well, i did. and it actually turned out to be a dazzling idea! Thanks you guys. I basically took the embroidered quill bracelet technique and made it longer. I almost don't want to sell it. But, my physical health depends on this income, a girls gotta eat right? That and my savings account for a one way ticket to Europe. Okay, maybe not one a way...i'll most likely make it a two way...maybe.
