I wasn’t waiting for the treasury on Etsy to open up or anything, but earlier today, someone posted an announcement on Twitter that it was opening up soon.   I decided to try and snag one, but I apparently missed it by just a minute or two. 

Well, fine.  I’ll put together my own collection of favorites!  I’m in a vintagey-steampunky-military-ish mood, and these items have all caught my eye in the last day or two (actually, I’ve been coveting a couple of them for a while now).  They are full of wonderful details and embellishments, from antique lace appliques and faux fur hems to metallic thread stitching and exposed seams.  With innovative construction and interesting lines, each of these handcrafted beauties would be a terrific addition to a seriously cool wardrobe.

The last day to order for the holidays from my Etsy shop will be December 20th!  You’ll still be able to order after that, of course, but I might not be able to get your purchase out to you before I leave for Kansas on the 23rd.   Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns about your order! 

Happy shopping!

Not anymore!  In the interesting in generating as much of a web presence as possible, I decided to open a shop on Big Cartel.  And while I’m still in the process of getting it set up and working on the design, I thought I’d give it a bit of a mini-debut.  Prices and shipping costs are identical to those in my Etsy shop, and it’s just one more place to find AntiGenre jewelry on the web!

Well, This One Better Stick!, originally uploaded by antigenre.

Click HERE to see it in Treasury West!

I made a treasury this afternoon shortly after the server malfunctioned and a bunch of them disappeared. The ones that were made after that (like this one) either disappeared or got switched to another curator’s page. So I just did the same one in Treasury West!

Tools!, originally uploaded by antigenre.

I’ve recently been on a bit of a buying spree for tools and reference material. I just purchased this terrific set of metal stamps from Evie’s Tool Emporium, and came back from a trip to Metalliferous with a starter collection of dapping tools. Also, after ignoring the advice of people who really do know what they’re talking about for too long, I finally ordered a copy of Tim McCreight’s Complete Metalsmith. It arrived yesterday, and I’ve only given it a quick glance-through, but I’m already thrilled with how clear the step-by-step process are and how well it is answering some of my basic technical questions.

Also, and totally unrelated, I snagged a Treasury West today quite by chance. The thumbnails below are just a few of the beautiful items included.  Click HERE to take a look at the whole collection!!

Corsico Set, originally uploaded by antigenre.

Since summer is now upon us, I thought I should brighten up my jewelry collection with a bit of color. I’ve just recently started playing around with patinas on my brass and copper pieces, and I am loving the results! It is an interesting process and seems to require a bit of patience with letting each layer dry so the color can come out.

The Corsico ring and earrings are among my first offerings – now available at AntiGenre on Etsy –  and I have plenty more ideas to start work on.
