A Little Summer Vacation

Spyralle Riverbend Necklace - Columbia

Spyralle Riverbend Necklace – Columbia

A bit of time off was what I needed. For over a year I had been working solid, often all night, on new products for Spyralle, not to mention a “day” job (as in Real Life), classes and volunteer commitments. I had some wonderful travel planned over the summer. So I planned a two month break after World Goth Fair, and then Life threw in a few major kickers, so I don’t know how long before Spyralle is back in the thick of everything.

But in the meantime, there are a few events and occasions I could not say “No” to. And making things is good for the soul. So I made this jewelry set especially for Independence Day. This set will be out at Spyralle this July 4 weekend for 60L Weekend (necklace and earrings sold separately), and then it will be gone. Maybe forever, maybe not; I have not decided.

Here the Riverbend pattern is rendered in red, white and blue.  It’s from the “5 branch” area of the Mandelbrot Set, so I added stars and moved the image around to feature the bursts that remind me of fireworks rather than the river.

What an incredible couple of weeks we have had! I would have made this in rainbow colors, except I more or less do that all the time, so I went patriotic instead. Let’s celebrate!

Silk Road 6

pyralle Persian Lantern

Spyralle Persian Lantern

Created especially for Silk Road Hunt 6 and inspired by classic Persian lamps, this original mesh lantern is the first of a new series of artistic lighting from Spyralle. Suitable for your modern, ancient or fantasy home or garden, the lamp comes with a detachable chain, extra chain and on/off script. The glass globe and antique metal fittings are materials ready. Land impact depends on size; out of the box LI = 1, with chain.

The fractal used on the glass is a folk art inspired kaleidoscope from the designer’s catalogue of original fractal images.

Summer Leaf

Spyralle Summer Leaf – Green

Summer Leaf is a new set of original mesh jewelry, introduced at the Some Like It Hot event at the shops at Sage. There is only one color so far because I could not come up with another gradient that satisfied me. I’m still working on it and hoping to provide an update, with HUD, later.

The necklace opens at the front on hinges at each side. The bracelet has one hinge opposite the leaves. The front of the earring has a post that inserts into the back.

The base fractal of the enamel is a deep zoom into the Mandelbrot set with a triangle inequality average overlay. (There’s some fractal texturing layered over the top, too.) I’ve been playing around with this one since 2011. For this project, the challenge is getting just the right amount of color change in the hue layer and not too much shadow in the overlay layer. Here’s a monochrome version.

Old Lace

Spyralle Old Lace Tea Gown - Ashes

Spyralle Old Lace Tea Gown – Ashes

Introduced at World Goth Fair, Spyralle’s Old Lace tea gowns are just the thing for dinner in Gotham or tea at the Addams mansion.  Life circumstances kept me away from the internet for most of the event, but it was as fabulous as usual – amazing setting and music (I lurked when I could). I’m really getting to enjoy being spooky!

Spyralle Old Lace Tea Gown - Purple

The gown comes in two versions of each color, each with an optional rose to pin on the cummerbund, trailing streamers of dark chiffon. So far there are four colors from the dark side.

The spiderweb lace is a Don Quixote fractal, rendered in different colors. I have used different variations of this fractal in several recent designs. The two versions of each color for Old Lace were made by cycling or reversing the gradient in the generated fractal images. They are not recolored in Photoshop. Of course, I had to make a special color for Arsenic!

Arsenic is actually a sort of “dark yellow,” which came out green when combined in the gradient with black, but … I liked it.

Old Lace will be back at Spyralle in the next day or so, very likely with additional colors.

A Parliament of Owls

Spyralle Owl Moon May

Spyralle Owl Moon May

Owls are generally solitary birds, but together in company, a collection of owls is called a Parliament. Most fitting that there are twelve Owl Moon gowns from Spyralle. More than twelve, in fact, as you have seen.

Spyralle Owl Moon June

The last four, plus the special Midsummer Night, are out at Fantasy Faire through this weekend.

They are all my favorite, in one way or another, but August is special, because she was the first I made.
