18k Gold vs 14k Gold

18k Gold is 75% Gold

Although the price is higher for 18k, you are getting heaps more of actual gold with every ring. Yellow gold will be the lowest price of the shades. Rose gold comes in a little higher in price due to its complex alloy to achieve that rich rosy color. 18k Palladium White gold is 100% nickel free. You pay a premium for the palladium, but in all body piercings nickel must be avoided. 18k is the European standard for all jewelry, including traditional jewelry.

14k Gold is 58% Gold

Less gold, 42% silver and copper. Perfectly safe alloy, 14k gold still tends to be the American standard alloy for jewelry. Most fine body jewelry makers sell 14k due to the popularity of its reduced price and the perceived deeper red in rose gold. Although you may find that 14k Rose as well as 14k Palladium White may still price out near 18k Yellow.

Kelsey O'Leary

I was getting some incredible Arna Miller prints framed at the frame shop in my neighborhood while chatting up the owner about the good old days before folks ran into walls and missed their floors on elevators due to digital pre occupation. Out on the street a dear friend happened to glimpse inside the frame shop and promptly popped in with news of a fundraising event happening in a couple weeks. She asked if I had any jewelry I could donate for the auction. I immediately said yes, I could do a simple hammered disk earring set....oh wait, no! I will do a pair of Rose Gold Swarovski Skull earrings! Even Better! Then coming to my typically absent filter, I had to ask what I may be supporting with this donation. She explained her business had recently lost a new team member in a fire and it was a fundraising event for all those affected. Giving my condolences, I asked further, who was gone? Kelsey O'Leary. A flash of chilling goosebumps consumed me, as I actually had made a pair of those Rose Gold Skull earrings as a gift for her months ago. I still had them, I just hadn't had a chance to go over and see her to drop them off....

That very pair of earrings made for Kelsey will be up for auction Monday November 12, 2018 at Magnolia Brewing Dogpatch. Come join us as Serpentine and Third Rail go dark in memoriam. 

Who is this little Major Tom character anyway?

As a child I always thought of Astronauts as huge, big, super people. I'd say the super part still sticks, but now in my mind this tiny 8mm tall astronaut seems a better fit. On one side, the astronaut symbolizes advancement of our species. On the other, the astronaut symbolizes being far, far, from home. Disconnected, and perhaps even lost, floating about in space. In the bigger picture I felt it was best to make this super detailed astronaut a miniature in our world. Lost in our accessory drawer by day and exploring from our lapel at night. Or just floating around the atmosphere of our collarbone from a chain like lifeline.
