I've spent most of the past two weeks hiding in a dark room pretending my head doesn't exist, which is... not exactly conducive to making shinies. The recovery from COVID-19 continues to kick my backside - I can normally work through all but the absolute worst migraines, but I'm having more double vision than usual and my lungs are still a mess, and the combination just keeps flattening me. GOOD TIMES, GOOD TIMES.
I do however have a handful of things to report!
Firstly, the fabric for the plague doctor masks landed a while back, and Jennifer has been sewing her fingers off, and on the rare occasions when I've been able to be upright, I've been making raven jewelry. I've got all the earrings done and am about halfway through the pendants, I think. We don't have an ETA yet, but it's getting a lot closer. See?
I should have a few extras of both the earrings and pendants, so if you wanted both but were only able to snag one or the other, let me know and I'll waitlist you for an upgrade to the set.
Also I may or may not be up to shenanigans with the gifties for these.
In other mask-related news, we're planning the next round and you should go vote for your favorite fabric! Although the fabric that's in the lead currently is really awesome and I have already been plotting what beads will go with it, so unless there's a sudden rush for one other other designs, probably that's what we'll be doing. I'll keep the poll open until the end of the month and then do the pre-order in early July.
...I think there was something else but I can't remember what it was so I'm going to go be horizontal until my grocery delivery arrives. I hope all of you are staying as healthy and as sane as possible, and hopefully there will be more new shinies soon.
Oh! The June Pretty Rocks Club is up for individual order and several people have said it's their favorite one yet, so if you like blue, go get some apatite! Also I made more of those labradorite earrings during one of my upright periods, and a couple of spiral pendants with opals, because labradorite and opals are very soothing.
Okay. Horizontal now for real.
