Poison Apple Locket Ring

By TheBrassHussy (me)

How fun, I finally took the time to finish this ring.

It originally was a shiny brass locket with a small bail on the top that I filed off. Then I added a bronzy vintage patina and used epoxy to adhere to an adjustable brass ring that has a gorgeous raised relief design.

Available here in my etsy shop!

Tooth Ache

Awesome Tooth Shirt by UnElephantRose

Yipes, my tooth hurts and I so dread going to the dentist. There are far more pleasant things I would like to do. Like wearing this adorable tooth t shirt! I think it would put a smile on my dr's face don't you?

This one of a kind top was designed and altered with love by Brooklyn dweller, Mary Andrews. It used to be a simple solid orangey-red t-shirt, and there now lives a huge red plaid tooth appliqué on the front.

100% cotton. Shirt is a great fit alone or creates a layered look over a tee or thin sleeved shirt.

2009 Tour De France - Please vote for me!

This pendant necklace is included in this current voter named Tour De France on Etsy. Please stop by and vote for my item if you can. The top winners usually make it into a gift guide. Thanks for your support!
Sailing down the street on your bicycle, can you hear the bell ringing? The necklace was made with a solid brass bicycle piece that I added a patina to and put on an 18 inch brass chain with a simple hook clasp. The necklace still needed something, so I added this brass capped glass bell. The glass bead actually makes a little jingle sound when it bounces against the brass bicycle.

Apple Poison Rings

Just got these adorable apple lockets in from I can't wait to make a poison apple ring with them. Last night I put them in a tumbler to clean the raw brass up before I can add a patina to them. I also plan to cut off the small loop as I think the ring will look better with out it.
