I call these the “own your mistakes” earrings because they started out as a different project, until I heated them a little too long and melted the ends. But I saw some beauty in what had happened, too. I transformed them into earrings and they’ve become something that I wear almost every day. Embrace your own mistakes, and wear these as a unique reminder that you’ll pull through.

Available at Shanksmade.

Another snake-related jewelry concept - tiny snake hugging a heart. 
The idea would be to cast this into silver to make a pendant.

The design for this came out of a friend’s request to make him a BFF-type necklace for his girlfriend where the two parts split apart. You know, like this. I told him I’d give it a shot.

This one is available at my Etsy store, Shanksmade.

For those days when you know you’ll need your super powers, the Wonder Woman cuff.
