I'm trying really hard to follow the branding advise I am reading everywhere, so I have separated my eclectic and experimental work from the polymer and metal items I have with missficklemedia.com.
I have several different lines going into this shop as I build my platform for the next book.
My current favorite is the Silk and Stone Wraps. I am using recycled sari silk combined with hand forged metal elements and gemstones in free form shapes. Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear your feedback!
The silk is very comfortable. Light weight and soft against your skin. I am fascinated by the luxurious feel and association the brightly colored silks have, but with the ragged edges. Perfect for my influences of savage design!
Look familiar? I gave a sneak peek in July!
Isn't the cleavage on my mannequin sexy? Don't be jealous, she isn't very smart and she has no skills what-so-ever. The neck cuffs are also very comfortable to wear. I tested my own while going about my daily routines, with the exception of soldering and hammering and found that once on, you do not even think about it. This is unusual for me as I can't stand anything on my body for an extended amount of time. Hair barrettes, bracelets, eye glasses, even make-up. But I liked this new style. Of course mine wasn't dripping into my cleavage......
It has been a crazy week. The kiddos have the flu. Both of them. Rex is rarely sick but he is in a bad way now; body aches, fever, racking cough, sore throat and terrible congestion. Pinky is the same only she was just diagnosed with a double ear infection. :(
Big Pappa can't hardly stand it. He is usually not here when the littles are sick. He has been pretty helpful though, helping me with the throw up on the sheets and the medicine dosing. He brought home new games for Rex and new art supplies for Pinky. The sucker. :)
They are such little troopers, keeping such a good attitude even when they feel awful. Rex heard Pinky crying in her bed last night and walked her to our room. His compassion makes me proud.
I hope everyone is staying healthy and flu free themselves. I know it's pretty widespread. One of our local schools closed due to 200 students and faculty being sick at one time. Sheesh! Times like these I do not mind that I am a homebody at all.
