It's non-stop creativity here at Old Maid HQ, and I've never been so happy to get out of bed in the mornings.
I've got a few new items in the shop this week, plus I've spent some time revamping photos for a few items already in stock. As time goes on, I learn more about photographing jewelry and I get a better idea of how I want the shop to look, so I review older listings to see how I can improve them.
I made one of these bracelets for myself a couple of weeks ago. I love wearing it and have received lots of compliments, so I made a few styles to put in the shop. I'm definitely going to make a some more for myself, too. I really like how they look grouped together.
My sister Rachel bought a pair of these quite some time ago and I'm finally getting some into the shop. Those are fancy chrome-plated lock washers that are used on motorcycles. Very shiny! This pair is 3 inches long from the top of the silvertone ear wire.
This is the same style in a smaller (2 inch long) size. Did you know they keep the chrome-plated fasteners under lock and key at the hardware store? Neither did I, but they do. I always feel like I'm asking to view the crown jewels when I have the case opened.
This is one of the pairs I've had in the shop for a while but I shot some new photos. They are the same style and size as the previous earrings, but made from reclaimed zinc washers with a pretty matte patina. I really like the contrast of the matte and shiny finish.
