and earrings I made.
I was making jewelry before I met Dave but he taught me the fancier stuff that involved wires. His sister taught him. He made me a ring when we first started dating. He had his sister teach him, then he taught me how to do earrings. The rest is history. I used to do craft fairs, sell online (that is why my site is by hillary. It used to be a store/ portfolio. It was a play on words) a failed etsy and in a local store. I only make for family now. I am a one trick pony honestly. But I like challenging myself to match outfits. I come up with an idea and hunt for beads to go with it. Like these earrings were made to go with this and one other pink print shirt I have. I do necklaces sometimes too but not often. They are more expensive and usually end up costing as much as buying one.
I am finally getting my grubby paws on Butter London polish. I dig it. This is All Hail the Queen which was originally in honor of McQueen but they changed the name. Their colors as just a bit quirky, apply smooth, last a good amount of time and have just a little something different to them.
I got mine at Nordstrom a couple months ago but they still have it.
It has micro holographic shimmer which is impossible to photograph. I should of done a little video maybe?
Do you create anything?
I can knit (ok) crochet (little better than ok but not great) sew (eh. I can get by) make jewelry (depends), embroider (decent) , paint (ok), sculpt (depends on thing). I can't cut a straight line though. Oh I create large messes too! I do random crafts too. I like etching, used to do printmaking and silkscreening too.
