more yeti works

Finally, I finished taking photos of the porcelain jewelry I've been making. The individual pieces (necklace above) are about 2" in diameter, the necklace is 8" across at the widest point. I wore it at a show last week and couldn't keep my hands off of it; it is so compelling to fondle the shapes.
I put some of the pendants in the etsy shop (tile etsy becaue they are blue & white).
Because we have two etsy shops (tile etsy and pottery etsy) it can get confusing as to what to put where. My general guidelines are: blue & white goes in tile etsy and earthenware and sculpture go in pottery etsy. But 'tales' images are more tile etsy-ish, even though some are done in earthenware. And some of the pottery is blue & white. But I put Mr. Cranky's jewelry in pottery etsy, because that is generally more his work...
So I'm sure you can empathize with my conundrum. Oh, wait, there are bigger problems in the world? Okay, I'll try to get a grip on myself.
I sign the backs with my little bird. The metal links are handmade because I like how they look (big and clunky, but in a good way) and it is necessary to achieve a proper fit for each individual piece. I wrestled with how to hang them for a good while before coming up with solutions that I love; metal wire (stiff) that holds the pieces in place for the larger ones, and a generous dark blue ribbon for the pendants. The ribbon allows you to tie the pendant at the exact length you prefer, infinitely adjustable.
