Recent Custom Orders...

It would seem that I am in the middle of peak custom order* season.

That is a wonderful thing! 

...However, it would also seem that I have been working on said custom orders more than, say, blogging. 

So! To make up for that, I figured I would share here some things that I've been working on:


Yep, more 3D printed pylons. 

Pylon 1

Pylon 2

Pylon 3

Pylon 4

The biggest one is almost two inches; the littlest one is less than an inch. It took me quite some time to do these... I had to tweak the existing pylon model (moving the "bail" from the outer ring to the central crystal)... then I had to get them printed (was touch-and-go for a little bit)... then I had to paint them (definitely need a smaller paint brush if I'm going to do any more of those littlelittle ones!). I also tried to get one printed in silver, but to no avail (ah well!).

Overall, though, I am extremely happy with how they turned out. 

Sabriel Hairsticks!

These were made to match the Sabriel earrings that I had in my shop. (Oh, and Sabriel is a main character in the Abhorsen trilogy by Garth Nix, for those interested.)

I really, really like how these turned out... I had actually made a Sabriel Hairstick design years ago, so it was fun both revisiting the idea and making something that the customer envisioned. It's always fun when a collaboration turns into something so pretty! :)

Willim Earrings! 

Two pairs of them, actually, for two different customers!

Both of these pairs are from the Songbird Tribute Collection... Willim is so popular, you would think that he was a main character or something. ;)

(Or that people just really really like the combination of purple and silver... Not going to lie, I'm definitely a fan!)


So, there you go! That is just a glimpse into some of the things that I've been working on. I actually have at least another five custom orders that I'm working on--all rather complicated pieces, but are turning out to be quite fun. I hope to post about those when they're done. :)


...And now, to go be productive. I hope everyone is having a lovely day!


* - I am using "custom order" simply to mean making something special for a customer--whether it be remaking an existing design, or coming up with something completely new. I've done--and am open to doing--both. :)
