Been a busy week...working on my Connection series of earrings...based on the safety pin connector...sometimes playing it safe results in just being alive, but not having a life. A fine line to walk, that's for sure! I am photographing these on an 18% gray piece of cardboard I got from a photography shop. I think they use it for light balance, but it makes for a nice background to show off silver.  Photographing jewelry is difficult, but one challenge I really like. These are available on my site at www.stacieflorer.com .

As a maker, the changes in Etsy's focus has made a huge impact on my online business.  I went ahead and switched to a website where I sell my own work, but I still find it sad that Etsy decided to cater to their shareholders and threw handmade makers, and buyers of handmade, under the bus. I am letting my listings expire as I transition away from them, and bid them goodbye. 
I'm a conscious consumer. I shop second-hand, I limit my consumption of “stuff,” and I try to keep my purchases local. I believe in voting with my dollars, and I've gone so far as to dedicate my career to figuring out what that means. On occasion, though, when I'm hankering for a new piece of ...

It hurt me tremendously, too, as it did so many of my friends whom I knew from there since the beginning. They truly did throw us under the bus. I couldn't have put it a better way. And it really is a reflection of the greed of corporations in this country.

Thumb rings today...I think the average size for female thumb rings is about 9.5...anybody know of any thing different than that? I have been wearing these stacked on my thumb and have been surprised at how comfortable they are...hope everyone had a great Monday!

These are some new earrings I made last week. Still continuing my exploration of the 'short leg' pinned series that has captured my imagination.  The X's and O's with the blue African glass beads were the first iteration, and from there I went on to the dangles.  I was inspired by the movie, Frida...her artwork was amazing, but her personal style captivated me.

These are ready to ship.

These are available in my Etsy store at https://www.etsy.com/shop/SoultoSubstance?ref=shop_sugg

I took this photo of the Imperial Moth today...a few days ago I saw, for the first time, a Hummingbird Moth, which has to be one of the coolest moths I have ever seen. I can see where people thought they looked like little Fairies back in the day...anyway. This guy or gal was a real beauty, it's just too bad they can't eat and die so soon after transitioning. Spawn till you die, baby...(saying off an old t-shirt I bought in Alaska years ago)
