It's that time of year again. This is the image for this year's Theda ornament. I'll start taking orders in a week, but wanted to share the image. Wishing you all well.

Hello livejournal friends. I'm saving an actual update for later in the week. I can't seem to concentrate on anything until the election is over.
I've been singing this in my head all day. It's the only non-partisan thing I can muster. Arcadia are very "cross the aisles" cool.

A few new things at the Od Peacock, like this Theda necklace and some assorted fairies.

Hope this finds you well and everyone has weathered the awful weather.

The days really do grow short when you reach September. I hadn't realized it had been over a month since I posted anything and longer still since I offered any actual jewelry. I haven't been slacking entirely. Below is a photo of some Day of the Dead necklaces I made for the Purple Peacock Gallery in Maine (http://www.purplepeacockgallery.com/). Peacocks and the Day of the Dead? Perfect, right?

I'm shipping these today and wanted to document/remember what I sent. It seemed liked a good opportunity to post an entry and say hello. Hope this finds you all well.

A few days ago my update was in regard to this beautiful cd we were about to release by Sarah June. The cds are here now and I thought I'd repost it in case you didn't get a chance to hear it previously. I hope you like it as much as I do.

I'm quite excited about this release on our record label and I thought I would share it with my livejournal friends as well. I've added a button in which to order it directly. Hope you enjoy it!

Sarah June

"This is My Letter to the World" CD Hand/Eye h/e040


Sarah June is a singer-songwriter from Detroit, Michigan. She has been singing and playing piano and guitar since childhood. In high school she began writing songs inspired by the haunting imagery of the industrial wasteland she was surrounded by. When she was 18 she began to perform in Chicago and Detroit, and put together an EP called "three-quarter view" in 2001. Currently she lives in San Francisco. Still inspired by bleak urban landscapes, and the loneliness that lurks within us all, she spent this past year writing songs that she compiled into her debut album: "This Is My Letter To The World". She recorded and edited all of the songs alone in her apartment, being careful to preserve the sincere and delicate sound-quality of the original recordings. Many of the songs' lyrics pay subtle homage to some of Sarah's most beloved literary figures such as Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath, Ray Bradbury, and Gwendolyn Brooks. "This Is My Letter To The World" is a visual experience as much as it is aural, with imagery-rich lyrics woven into atmospheric and fragile melodies.

Though singer-songwriter seems too common a term to apply to Sarah June, however accurate it may be. Singer-songwriter she is, but the songs she writes and sings are both more beautiful and more haunting than the average fare. There is an uncommon ghostly aire to her album. Like the smell of flowers in a empty and abandoned house where sunlight comes shining through dusty window panes. Perfectly sparse and lonesome, these songs come from the edges of dreamland. 10 original compositions accompanied by 2 well-chosen covers (Prince’s “When Doves Cry” and a stunning version of Elvis’ “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You .”)

Track listing:
1. We Lurk Late
2. Dial Tone
3. The Illustrated Man
4. Charlotte
5. Radio Wave
6. My Red Shoes
7. Emmeline
8. Can't Help Falling in Love
9. Sailor in a Bottle
10. If You'll Be Nice
11. Jungfrau Maria
12. When Doves Cry


+postage paid special pre-order price+

Dramatic Victorian actress as Cleopatra set under a clear quartz cab in an adjustable
silver plate ring with a patina. Apparently we're getting hitched since she's on my ring finger...I could've done worse for myself.

I'm parting with some of my costume jewelry and related fancies. So periodic updates will be happening on that front. Here's a cute little deco inspired pill box with three compartments, so you can keep your Clomid and your Avodart separate. You can have it for free if you are indeed taking both drugs.


The rest of the first batch is on the oddities page of the site http://www.odpeacock.com/oddities.html for your amusement.
