Meteora

    Another holiday gift.  This one is named after a character from “The Christmas Toy” special the Muppets did in the 80’s, family’s favorite holiday movie back in the day.  Wait, what do I mean was? We’re still all really… Continue Reading →

Three Stories

I. I get the idea looking over a book of literary criticism of another book I’ve never actually read.  I do read it.  I’m not disappointed exactly.  I knew going in that I had my own idea.  I try writing… Continue Reading →

Bead and Button Show 2017

I’m not able to attend this year, but this stopped me from picking out my twelve favorite classes not at all. Mitate Garden by Staphine Eddy: a beading adventure.  Imagine playing with the colors of all of those unusual shapes…. Continue Reading →

“Don’t do the thing.” / *continues to do the thing*

I was tempted to open this post up with “I don’t learn well”, but that might not be exactly true.  Some things I learn very well.  Someone could show me a new bead stitch today and I’d be getting into… Continue Reading →

Velociraptor’s Heart

    This one was a trip and a half to make.  The client picked out the stones and said natural.  It turns out that the teardrops are much easier to bezel– even in embroidery –than the modern oval rivolis…. Continue Reading →

Obligatory New Year’s Post

Little late for a New Year’s post, but it turns out one of my roommate’s has a tradition of cleaning ALL OF THE THINGS on the first.  I was down with that.  It kind of took all day and we… Continue Reading →

Costa

  Not a commission, but a belated gift for my grandmother.  Her favorite color is purple and she loves embroidery.  I got the idea for this particular pendant while sorting strip club records at work… and if this woman is… Continue Reading →

Elizabeth

      The last of my holiday commissions, I nonetheless think Elizabeth is my favorite.  She was done on rather short notice and isn’t a color combination I usually gravitate too, but wow does she pack a punch.  Plus,… Continue Reading →

Not The Week I Expected

My 2016 has not been wonderful.  I mean, it could have been worse, a lot worse even.  I successfully got new digs.  I adopted the a cat that resembles a Muppet.  I got to see Laura McCabe and walk in… Continue Reading →

Jealous of Roses Halloween Short: Starshit

So hey, fun fact everyone! When you tell your awesome writing coach that you can’t write horror, your next assignment will be to write horror.  Every day.  For a week.  Here’s my first ride on the scary-go-round.  Hopefully, I didn’t… Continue Reading →

I Have Been Absolved, Part II

Continuing on from last week… I’ve been having people tell me my character’s are appealing, even loveable, for years.  I would never begrudge those compliments.  In fact, they’ve gotten me through a lot of my revisions.  But, something I learned… Continue Reading →

I Have Been Absolved And You Can Be Too

It’s actually really fun and the best part is you have the power to absolve yourself.  But, just in case you’re like me and you don’t believe that you have that power… -Kas Roth, Literary Engineer No, it’s not from… Continue Reading →

Andromeda

My very first commission in my new stomping grounds.  The customer and I were carrying on around July 4th and this ended up turning into the necklace.  She specifically wanted to name it when she saw it in person, so… Continue Reading →

Inevitability and Writing Coaches

When I was six years old, I fell outside at recess and sprained my ankle.  I chose not to tell anyone and I walked on that sprain for two days before my mother noticed I couldn’t put my ankle down… Continue Reading →

Retro-Futurism I Necklace

I got my Laura McCabe on for this necklace which I made for Mum’s birthday this year (and to help her get closure on something shitty that happened to us, but that is a long story), but I didn’t manage to… Continue Reading →

Water Lilies I

Made for my lovely girlfriend for her high school reunion.  Swarovski stones and bicones, gold-sueded Czech beads, charlottes and Japanese seed beads in Prismatic RAW.  This required roughly 30 hours of work.

Examples

I picked up beading much faster than I picked up writing.  I’ve only been able to tell a more or less coherent story from beginning to end for a few years.  Of course, I’ve only been beading for a few… Continue Reading →

Love, Hate, Tortitude & Other Terrible Things

So, the cat previously mentioned has adjusted well to her new home, by which I mean she’s now convinced this house is hers, as it should be. Let’s call her Terrible, since any cat who stands on the table and… Continue Reading →
