Black, Silver, and Green Dragon Dice Keychain
This is a Dungeons and Dragons dice keychain with a cute dragon charm dangling from the bottom. (This does hang straight- the shape of the eight sided die made this sit a little strangely. Normally a keychain won't be lying flat.) The beads were picked to…

Silver and Black Triple Pierced Earring With Cuff
This triple pierced cartilage chain earring looks a little strange in this picture, but that's because the mannequin's ear is a little smaller than life-sized, so it fits her ear a little strangely.

It has three chains (two black, one silver) that conne…

The colors got…
