I'm not just a painter...I also sew (kind of), knit (square or rectangular items), and make jewelry, among other things. Sometimes* I want a particular kind of accessory or clothing item and can't find it in stores, so I gotta make it happen under my own power, y'know?
Anyhoo, today I made a cute li'l choker and I thought I'd show you guys.
The cartoonish quality of that skull bead makes me happy...it keeps the goth-ness of the necklace from taking itself too seriously, which is exactly what I was going for. If my sense of style could talk, it would say "whoooOOOooooOOooo, spooky!" in a sarcastic voice and then giggle.
*"Sometimes" is a pretty vast understatement. Every time I try to shop for clothes lately, I feel like I am being offered two stylistic options: 1) underage gothic whore or 2) middle-aged legal secretary. The age-appropriate clothes bore me to tears, the funky clothes literally don't even cover my whole ass, and there's no midground whatsoever.
