The free version of this site is annoying. ..
Edit: shout out to the awesome :iconnextraztus: for their kindness and premium membership to view deviations so much easier!

Well, I don't have Facebook or any other social media but finally had the balls to post on imgur my wares. I am working on a new project and needed some inspiration to push through the grueling prep work.

Out of all the posts yesterday, the kind imgur admins posted MY WARES  to their facebook.

Now, I normally don't ask but if you'd be so kind to check it out, share, and keep this going I'd greatly appreciate it. Their facebook got more likes than my original post though >_>

Found that kinda funny.

The deviant who captures has 24 hours to send a note including the screencap to collect on one of 2 different options!

Normally I don't partake in the pageview milestones, but I have wonderful deviants  that I've come to know and grateful for the attention my gallery has had over the last year. I love deviantART! It's a joy working with other artisans and getting to make some sick projects. There are some shipping restrictions, I try to limit to Ireland, the UK, Canada, The U.S., Mexico, PR, amongst others. Please inquire further if you are going to be watching for the contest! Even if you are close (50,001, 50,002 up to 10) send the screencap. If the spot on 50k is not reported in the 24 hours, it will go to the second closest reported.

I have a list of projects I'm wrapping up, but always open to new ideas and commissions. I do have a little backlog, so delay times are within reason, but a little more extended than normal. Once these are cleared, I'm looking into seeing about becoming more active in the dA community! Time to delve headfirst into my creative side and allow the drafting to begin!

Happy crafting and Good Luck!

My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 5:45 PM
Now! I've seen a ton of these all done differently. Some show self reflection- others about those who they'd like to draw attention to and the relationships they'd built. I just hope I'm doing this right! Not often do I complete these. 

My goodness, I am no wordsmith but figured if join on on the stories that have unfolded through dA's birthday. This upcoming month will make my 9th year on the site. Over the years, starting out as a young and restless 14 year old that was grossly misunderstood, aside from the few good friends, found this site to pour into. My sister. :iconfelosoraptor: and I have been some of the only ones from our local friends to remain on the site.

Lightbulb Moments by NikidaEve

The one thing that drove me to start was actually traditional media  and I wanted to model. Realizing I wasn't the best in front of a lense, I had turned towards literature.  I had trouble communicating directly with people on a real   level. I also am socially awkward and didn't have the self esteem a 15 year old should have and had so many ideas and thoughts I would stutter to get the words out. It was extremely frustrating and helped fuel my want to write and be heard. 

Vaporized DreamsSteam vaporizes.
Haze expunges the walls that surround her,
hot water engulfs her naked figure.
Sweet fragrances of lavish fruits intertwine with the foggy distortion,
aroma's remind her of pheromones his body gave off.
Sweet and distinct,
her nose twinges at the memories that flash with the scents.
She floats to the warmth of being in his arms,
the smell of his hair,
the feel of his soft skin,
being in his arms presented a perfect fit.
She sinks lower in the tub to where her nose is above the water.
Flashbacks play themselves across the foggy void,
his smile, the taste of his kiss,
the tender touch of his fingers in her hair;
her senses were ablaze.
The recollections were sweet,
despite her attitude of loss,
there wasn't a bad memory to be found.
No hatred plagued her mind,
no ill will was even directed at her actions.
She presented herself in a manner she never knew capable of an emotional train wreck.
She was placid,
solace still was able to find its way into what she felt was her l

After er a few years and starting to come out of my shell, there were many deviants is come across. This site pulled me in, and was easily addicting to being surround by like-minded individuals in the pursuit of artistic freedom. Over time, I was able to build my self esteem to be able to speak and no longer needed the crutch that was literature. I learned a lot in my journey to find my niche, when it finally hit me.

Elven Greens Handflower by NikidaEve

:CURSE YOU! d'oh! I SHOULD have known that I would adore the artisan craft world. I am mechanically inclined and had a lot of interest in metals and working with my hands. OMG MOAR POEMS!  And so began the research! I'd started small with box weaves and English 4-1 weaves. My dad and sister always supported the new designs, and even took a jab at beadings. After a strain of interesting and life-changing moments, the more I grew as an individual- slowly moving through teen years and seeing more of the world unfold- the more I dove into the craft. It was an escape from the hard times, but it also made me feel like I was accomplishing something.  Growing up was a roller coaster of emotions, good times, fights, and feeling alienated by being the unique individual I knew I was but felt boxed in by stereotypes, when in actuality it was  I that was psyching myself out .

Without the support of the community I wouldn't be where I am today. I've had brief hiatuses but I always come back to warm welcomes and well wishes. I've made lifelong friends on this site where I was unable to so so in person and helped refine my skills to be the confident crafter I am now.

Without the support of many people, and :iconfelosoraptor: pushing the limits and helping me challenge me by collaborating and educating me with projects, commissions, and just knowing that I can post here freely and feel like I belong helps. I cut out all social media sites because I just did not want to have time reading posts about breakfast or how people were spending every waking second of their day in a manner that was unproductive (with exceptions, lets be real I'm not THAT much of a cynic) , but coming back to dA to connect with those who have devoted hours, years, blood. Sweat. AND TEARS for what they're passionate about made the hardest years of my life memorable and shaped me into the artisan I am now. 

Bridal Steampunk Necklace by NikidaEve

With the help of many artisan groups, I come to just browse and lurk and show off the new wares from the beautiful souls that I have met and proud to call clients. Some of the projects that I've had the privilege to bring to life make me grateful that I do custom works and can bring a dream into the real realms. 

I didn't want to name any names because ALL of you have made me feel like I can express myself and can be understood. Every gallery, every comment, every page view and every awesome llama :iconllamatruckplz: have been a joy over the last (almost) 9 years and I hope to have another 14+more!

happy effin birthday dA! We hope to help get through these years and watch you also grow over the years :D

Change to Bottle Sales

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 16, 2014, 2:28 PM
Because of the risk of breakage, shipping on all bottles will include a $3 priority mail charge.

These items will now be shipped priority, but along with the bubbled mailers, they are secured in a thick box to avoid any future broken items.

These are insured and tracked, and will make it easier to locate your product in transit!

I am sorry that not all my shipping is free, but is only limited to glass bottles.

Also, I am working some large commissions, and awaiting supplies on some items! Sorry for the delay to these clients, I am at the mercy of larger-company processing and shipping times!

Please buy me...

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 28, 2013, 5:07 PM

We now have a new puppy that's 10 weeks old named LIly, she's a German Shepard. And adorable

I'm really trying to clear my old stock on Etsys to make room for new well crafted items that are fresh in design and allowing more room for inspiration than letting other items sit. 

It's the holiday season and sale discounts will be posted to allow room for growth.

I'm always looking for commissions and have some wire works that are in progress.  I gotta finish tinkering with a dragon sword wire wrap, and a few other wire wrap necklaces will be posted for one online client and a few local ones. 

Anyways what the hell has been up dA? I hadn't heard any fun stories from my fellow deviants in awhile. Hit me up!

Also, things are starting to relax a little. In the fluster of getting the house winterized and in dire need of a new dehumidifier (waiting on back stock -_-) 
And had a new cortisone shot in my hand so the pains alleviated. If it doesn't stay gone then my dr will be surprised but may require minor minor surgery just to alleviate the pain because the bone is larger than it should be causing a super crappy pressure point. If it were a cyst they'd have drained it or lanced it out but it's bone shifted or something. She didn't say if it'd always been like that but it's only now just getting noticeably larger. 

1 month till I know if pain comes back.
3 months I should be fine w/ no surgery. Guess the doc only sees like a handful a year cuz it's not that common. But not that serious. Enough to be friggin annoying.

Print Sale with Felosoraptor

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 6, 2013, 6:38 AM
Halp! My sister is a photographer who does phenomenal things with her film and digital works. She does anything from light drawing, steel wool, to surreal designs and crisp real world photography of cityscapes. She is struggling with school bills that have popped up as a surprise because of certain state stipulations for funding and she's offering loose prints starting from $20 USD up depending on size and $75 and up for matted prints. Shipping is included for US citizens. Her journal to reference is here Felosoraptor'sPrint Sale or go to her profile :iconfelosoraptor: and see for yourself the beautiful photos she captures and creates. Please consider viewing as she is in need to get some funds raised and her works are under appreciated and ARE A STEAL at those prices. She sells prints locally but doesn't have an Etsy account, but will have the ability to send credit/debit transactions PayPal Invoices! Inquire further for details 

Commissions can be requested but sessions or studio like inquiries need to be clear but may be unavailable as travel is out of the question but requestedimages may be available! 

And now, Reconnected

I am still in the process of moving in, but I have alot of things settled and unpacked, including my beast computer! I have to reinstall some things, but its nice to have it back up and running.
Internet = check
electronics hooked up = check
jewelery commission = open

I have a repair to ship out, but I am open for all kinds of commissions, the more I can make, the more I can get supplies for new creations.

New posts will soon start coming in :D

Update-Also Daily Deviation Featured!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 27, 2013, 4:31 AM
Thanks to one of the lovely artisan craft admins who work file gently for the artisan community :iconmaytel: featured my deviation  Chainlink Bikini top by NikidaEve!

I'm also closing and moving into my new home Friday . Sorry fr the lack of uploads the last few weeks but after this weekend I'll be in overdrive for creative projects! I'm looking for new and interesting commissions so please let me make them! Note me with specifics and ill try to work as best as I can with your needs! Also, if there is something that you wish to see done,  also feel free to suggest it. I believe a scalemail purse is in order. I would love to make this shirt I've been dying to see but I need new materials for larger rings than I had anticipated so that is delayed a little until I can fund it.

Thank you again to all the deviants who took the time over the last few days to look at my gallery and my creations since the daily deviation feature! I'm working on all the messages but I get alerts that they think its spam since I've commented back so much. Working on getting to you all!

Another notch in my repair belt

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 17, 2013, 8:53 AM
Before I used to repair electronics in little ways, never anything crazy like others that I knew, but today I fixed 2 gameboy. Pokemon cartridges. They used these little CR2025 batteries to save games back in the day, versus these flash memory drives and memory sticks and such like in the first generations of playstation. So when these batteries die, you lose all save capabilities, making it impossible to progress in Pokemon gold and crystal because you can't catch em' all!

I replaced 2 today without help, and without problems. The tiny welds were almost impossible to pop without ruining the board but I did it without a scratch :D

Proud little nerd moment for me today.

Hello! It's been awhile since I'd updated. Currently still undergoing some new projects, and including a project where I'm moving into my first home. It's exciting and scary at the same time, and I'm running an Etsy sale starting TODAY! And runs until Sept 1st, if you type in "Aug2013" at checkout through my Etsy store, Gemslots LLC, and receive 20% off your order, when it totals $15 USD or more. Now seeing as I only have my shop set up with the US, please note or message me for international shipping prices, as they vary, but are available upon request. If you request a commission by Sept 1st, I will also credit you the 20% off with that timeframe, and will work my fastest to get it to you. Please inquire further for items.

I have 2 small projects to complete, a voodoo skull pin, and a cool color Byzantine bracelet so now is the perfect time to request the large project you've been waiting for!

Anything helps! It's immensely appreciated

Anyone have a good supplier for stainless steel wire?
I don't know any that just sell the wire direct instead of pre coiled ones. If I were to just buy the coils, I may as well opt in and spend the extra buck to buy pre cut ones >_<
