Happy New Year!

Getting ready for my first show of 2012, HRM Steampunk Symposium on the Queen Mary in Long Beach starting January 13th. I believe that the vendors area is open to the public from what I've read*, so no need to buy a membership if you're nearby and would like to visit my booth!
*"...but the ideal location and popularity of the Queen Mary will enable our vendors to be exposed to the general public..." 

 I've made a few new Steampunk and Victorian style pieces, plus one that's not, while I listen to China Mieville's Embassytown from Audible over the last few days:

Earthenwood ceramic pendant and bead, Mother of Pearl, Gears from Vintage Jewelry Supply
Aqua and brown Earthenwood ceramic pendant and Czech glass beads hand knotted on polished linen cord
might be adding a few more to this
This is a non-theme piece - Humblebeads pendant with carved bone,  ecru Czech druk beads and some beads that reminded me of slices of wood from dreamgirlbeads
Chandelier earrings with deep teal Czech firepolished glass, brass chain & filigree from Vintage Jewelry Supplies and some lovely brass spacers and bead caps
Here's a Victorian style set with a lavolier-ish necklace made with a filigree and chain in the center, with deep cut garnet glass beads, luster coated glass roundells linked into a chain and a strand of tiny Swarovski crystal pearls and garnet Czech druk glass with tiny gold bead spacers.
These matching earrings are made with Tierra Cast gold plated pewter links and bead caps, gold vermeil spacers, Swarovski 2mm crystal pearls, deep cut garnet glass from Artbeads and garnet Czech druk beads. Chain from Vintage Jewelry Supplies. I'll probably be making a three strand bracelet to complete the set.
Well, that's it for tonite - hope you have a wonderful 2012!
