Heirlooms – August, Shop Update

24.08.2019_Shaima

A quick update on some new arrivals to my Etsy store, Embers & Stones. If you’re not familiar with my work, alongside creating art I also like to spend some of my time handcrafting fantasy-themed jewellery; mostly using wire-work techniques. I hope you find some time to check it out. 🙂

I decided to try something new this month. I’ve done quite a few earrings, necklaces & bracelets now, but with the holidays approaching (…well when I say approaching 😅) I thought it would be fun to experiment with some little decorations instead. So far there are 4 of these ornaments up in the shop; this being the ‘Heirlooms’ collection, but I might try some other variations as well.

November, Sketches & Marvel

It’s been a rather slow November, but a much more exciting weekend with Marvel releasing The Punisher series last Friday. That basically summed up my weekend as I couldn’t stop watching. So glad to see Jon Bernthal get his own show; as I was looking forward to seeing a proper Punisher series for a very long time. An additional bonus was seeing Ben Barnes enter the franchise; as I know I couldn’t contain my excitement.

Continuing with sketches, as I was flipping through mine I landed on an unfinished piece. I don’t have many of these, but I can’t seem to find the inspiration at the moment to complete this one. Maybe I’ll come back to it in the future, who knows.
