i can't seem to get enough of this song. although the video plays like someone's dream that makes absolutely no sense and is soon forgotten.

as time passes

alloy heart blog, how i've neglected you so. 
a lot of time has passed since my last post and for that i am sorry. you know that quote by john lennon? yeah, you know which one i'm talking about. ;)
so here is a photographic representation of what has happened in the last weeks...

alex surprised me with these amazing alexis bittar earrings i was drooling over in the chicago boutique. perfect to wear to my brother's wedding!
 we had a halloweeny party for our neighborhood friends where i had the dumb idea to make these exasperating cake pops...
...went to a halloween themed wedding where i dressed as a flapper:
 ...and alex as lucifer...scary picture, i know!
less than a week ago, i wore the earrings to the wedding...
 ...of my handsome brother to his lovely bride. :)
in between these events, i read and absolutely loved this trilogy... addicted to this...
...made these...
...which will soon be featured on this:
yes, i am finally putting things up on i didn't realize how sort of/kind of complicated it is (setting up shop policies, shipping info, etc.) it will be up soon, I PROMISE! :)

i made these earrings last year after i came back from the detroit rock show. that was where i first saw drusy quartz stones. it was love at first sight. i bought these beautiful gold ones and made a pair of earrings for myself. i loved them and wore them all the time but after a while i got tired of the look of the post flat against my earlobes. 

i didn't want the beautiful (and expensive!) stones to go to waste so i decided to change them. i made these using freshwater pearls, gold plated beads and jade stones. i'll definitely be wearing these more often now!

crazy crusty crystals

i have had this drusy quartz for probably two years now. i was so afraid for the longest time to bezel set it because i wanted to make something really cool using it and because i was so afraid i was going to make a mistake and ruin it. i finally decided i just needed to make it into a simple necklace because the stone speaks for itself. isn't it just beautiful? i bought it from the detroit rock show. i should've bought more drusys...i don't see them often. i was told this particular stone was coated with titanium to give it an ultra sparkly dark finish. i'm pretty happy with outcome, although i'm toying with the idea of putting it on a slightly heavier gold filled chain.
i have another similar looking drusy that's more of an irregular oval shape. perhaps i will work on that one tomorrow...
