Faux Mink Headband and Collar by Sarahorsomeone
Faux Mink Headband and Collar
Faux red-dyed mink fur headband and collar, made by me! I used some lovely Tissavel faux fur I got on clearance. :D

The collar is slightly wonky in the photograph, whoops. Also, I realise that the camisole I'm wearing is not terribly wintery and doesn't go with the furry stuff... but it's actually summer and I didn't want to die of heat stroke.
Freshwater Pearl and Recycled Coral Necklace by Sarahorsomeone
Freshwater Pearl and Recycled Coral Necklace
About a month ago I picked up an old (or 'vintage' as people like to say) coral necklace second-hand from someone having a clear-out. I only paid a few pounds for it and assumed it was just dyed bamboo coral. Anyway... to cut a long story short, it turned out to be undyed precious coral of one of the Corallium species (most likely C. elatius) and worth much more than I paid. Despite this I didn't like the original style of the necklace (which was a very long 'opera strand' and looked somewhat sparse) so I cleaned up the coral (which was very grubby) and used it create this necklace, also adding nine large nugget freshwater pearls nestled in amongst the coral branches. The necklace is just under 16" long, but has a removable 2" extender chain with a shell charm at the end, and a larger starfish charm attached to the clasp (but you can't really see it in the photo). It's shown worn without the extender chain in the picture on the right.

This is the first piece I've made to keep myself all year so far ^_^. I would have never bought the coral new for ethical reasons and precious coral is normally very expensive.

Credit goes to mellowmint for the background texture…

Hmm... what to put.

I live in the UK with my two pet birds while studying for an undergraduate degree in health sciences. This is possibly helped by my strange ability to remember all kinds of weird Latin anatomical names whilst not being able to remember the name of the person sitting next to me. I'm particularly fascinated by human anatomy, physiology and medical microbiology.

As for the more artistic side of things, when I get the time, I work on everything from traditional art, photography, photo-manipulation and a variety of artisan crafts. Although a fair bit of the work I do is digital, above all things I like to work with my hands; the smaller and fiddlier the better! As you may have guessed, my gallery is quite eclectic in style, medium and subject.

When not studying or doing arty/crafty things I love to fence. Partly because it gives me a legitimate reason to poke people. ^_^
I haven't been around much recently, I was very busy preparing for exams and then had to have a small operation the week after. I've got some work to do over the summer break but otherwise I'm fairly free so hope to photograph and/or finish a few artisan craft pieces I have in the works. I should have some new things to upload over the next few weeks.

Sarah :-)

I realized I locked my forum thread and hence couldn't reply to your comment there about the "coloured light effect" in my work.

I'll let you in on a little secret... Sometimes I just put a very transparent coloured layer on top of things and keep painting above it. ;) That and applying amusing colour correction effects in my painting software once I'm finished. Sometimes if it ends up looking weird I end up painting some more to adjust it again. 

We do have a digital medium at our hands, might as well make the most of it ;D
