The pictues today are some old pendants I recently unearthed, from several years ago, when I was still doing metalwork. I really enjoyed these and they sold well, but I had to abandon them to focus on clay. Some of them got sort of dark and brassy and funky in a way I really enjoyed, and towards what I see as a steampunk asethetic that I am currently searching for. I think I need to clean these up, rephotograph them, and list them on Etsy, what do you think? Remember, Steam Week starts tomorrow! I hope to share with you what I know and see and work on one steam related piece every day next week. But I gotta get my work done tonight first.
Speaking of tonight, its Grammy night, eh? That gives me something to look forward to watching while I work this evening. I don't usually like a lot of the music presented, but it is my opportunity to learn about what's going on right now in pop music, crash course style. I like to see the fashions too. Very entertaining.
Today's song is "Tonight, Tonight" by the Smashing Pumpkins. I am not a huge Pumpkins fan, a little too nasal-ey to me, but I think this is a gem of a song and video. And a little steam like, or at least old-timey. I read on Wiki that they made it when the movie "Titanic" was being made, and James Cameron had rented out almost all of the turn of the century props and costumes in Hollywood, so they had to be really creative in thier choices. I think that's probably one of the reasons its so neat.
