14K GF Wire Letter Necklace ✦ 14K 包金繞線字母項鍊

    

這件試驗品著實讓老闆得意了好一陣子,完成後便直接讓 joyce 本人掛著到珠寶展亮相,在滿場穿戴翠玉寶石真金白銀的賓客中,絕對與眾不同,哈哈哈~

用金屬線扭製英文字母是去年許下的小心願,不過也就這麼拖著拉著總能變出一百個原因擱置,直至前些日子終於下定決心認真面對這檔事。一如往昔,首先使用無鍍色 20 gauge / 0.81 mm 黃銅線試做 (我們慣用 Artistic 及 BeadSmith 兩大品牌的 craft wire),沒想到第一次便上手,連草稿都不打直接憑藉感覺繞出來的字母還挺有模有樣,簡直讓人信心大增 (抖腿)。於是乎,不囉嗦,直接讓 14KGF 包金線上陣,途中三心二意硬改了 t 和 f 的繞法,彎來折去後便是連續兩件皆失敗收場 (眼神死)。包金線比起銅線或鋁線要硬些,剛開始使起來不是太順手,不過有練習有進步,封面照是包金線第三號試驗品,嘿嘿,是不是還蠻有這麼回事的!

設定的三個字母並非臨時起意,而是早早便打定主意要做的,因此達成任務後特別開心,哈哈哈~這句出現頻率之高的問候語,對許多人來說應該倍感親切吧 (教壞小孩),倒是 joyce 本人居然一眼相中要在正式場合中展示,也算是忒有勇氣了 😀

比不上外頭熟練此技能的手作達人,所以小店暫無計畫推出相關產品,純粹是老闆做來自爽。下圖為銅線第一號試驗品!

背景音樂是 the message by nas,恩,就是第一首浮現在腦海中的歌曲。雖然不是饒舌音樂的忠實粉絲,但對於因緣際會遇上的某些作品,偶爾還是挺有感的。或許由於饒舌歌手們本身自帶街頭幫派背景的刻板印象,在每次粗暴的宣洩中,無禮的調侃下,譏諷的吶喊裡,唸唱著憤怒、不滿、痛苦、無奈、和深沉的悲傷,聽來總覺得是對社會對人生對自我的希冀盼求,既高亢又卑微。英文歌詞在文末。

同場加映去年一整年在工作室瘋狂輪播的其中一首:hate me now by nas ft. puff daddy,總之 joyce 被迫跟著循環洗腦後竟愛上了旋律進而好奇歌詞是在念些甚麼來著,然後對於老闆隨口翻譯的幾段覺得這詞真是棒透了!老闆有個習慣,喜歡的一首歌或一組 playlist 會維持很長一段時間日日輪播到天荒地老,一個月、二個月…… 一年,可能是種透過背景音樂潛移默化把歌曲刻進靈魂裡的病態 XD,畢竟一條歌曲每天聽上一百次很難不記住些甚麼。

Fake thug, no love, you get the slug, CB4 Gusto
Your luck low, I didn’t know til I was drunk though
You freak niggaz played out, get fucked and ate out
Prostitute turned bitch, I got the gauge out
96 ways I made out, Montana way
The Good-F-E-L-L-A, verbal AK spray
Dipped attache, jumped out the Range, empty out the ashtray
A glass of ‘ze make a man Cassius Clay
Red dot plots, murder schemes, thirty-two shotguns
Regulate wit my Dunn’s, 17 rocks gleam from one ring
Yo let me let y’all niggaz know one thing
There’s one life, one love, so there can only be one King
The highlights of livin, Vegas style roll dice in linen
Antera spinnin on Milleniums, twenty G bets I’m winnin them
Threats I’m sendin them, Lex with TV sets the minimum
Ill sex adrenaline
Party with villians, a case of Demi-Sec to chase the Henny
Wet any clique, with the semi-tech who want it
Diamonds I flaunt it, chickenheads flock I lace em
Fried broiled with basil, taste em, crack the legs
way out of formation, it’s horizontal how I have em
fuckin me in the Benz wagon
Can it be Vanity from Last Dragon
Grab your gun it’s on though
Shit is grimy, real niggaz buck in broad daylight
with the broke Mac it won’t spray right
Don’t give a fuck who they hit, as long as the drama’s lit
Yo, overnight thugs, bug cause they ain’t promised shit
Hungry-ass hooligans stay on that piranha shit

[Chorus: samples from “New York State of Mind" (repeat 4X)]

“I never sleep, cause sleep is the cousin of death" -[Nas]
“I ain’t the type of brother made for you to start testin" -[Nas]

[Nas]
I peeped you frontin, I was in the Jeep
Sunk in the seat, tinted with heat, beats bumpin
Across the streat you was wildin
Talkin bout how you ran the Island in eighty-nine
Layin up, playin the yard with crazy shine
I cocked a baby 9 that nigga grave be mine, clanked him
What was he thinkin on my corner when it’s pay me time
Dug em you owe me cousin somethin told me plug him
So dumb, felt my leg burn, then it got numb
Spun around and shot one, heard shots and dropped son
Caught a hot one, somebody take this biscuit ‘fore the cops come
Then they came askin me my name, what the fuck
I got stitched up and went through
Left the hospital that same night, what
Got my gat back, time to backtrack
I had to drop so how the fuck I get clapped
Black was in the Jeep watchin all these scenes speed by
It was a brown Datsun, and yo nobody in my hood got one
That clown nigga’s through, blazin at his crew daily
The ‘Bridge touched me up severely hear me?
So when I rhyme it’s sincerely yours
Be lightin L’s sippin Coors, on all floors in project halls
Contemplatin war niggaz I was cool with before
We used to score together, Uptown coppin the raw
But uhh, a thug changes, and love changes
and best friends become strangers, word up

[Chorus: first from “New York State of Mind", then “Halftime" (repeat 4X)]

“Y’all know my steelo" – [Nas]
“There ain’t an army that could strike back" – [Nas]

[Nas]
Thug niggaz
Yo, to them thug niggaz gettin it on in the world you know?
To them niggaz that’s locked down
doin they thing survivin yaknowmsayin?
To my thorough niggaz, New York and world wide
Yo to the Queensbridge Militia
9-6 shit.. The Firm clique, Illmatic nigga
It Was Written though
It’s been a long time comin
Y’all fake niggaz, tryin to copy
better come with the real though
Fake ass niggaz yo..
(They throw us slugs we throwin em back, what?)
Bring the shit man, live man
(Fuck that son)
Nine-six shit..
