Adornment
That's fancy term for Jewelry & Clothes...

This category has gotten ever fuzzier, a problem coming out of the fact that I use, in effect, two categories to sort my various creations: by medium, or method of creation, and by intended use. —Used to be adornment was strung beads, that is, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. And then I started making beaded wall hangings, planters, garden decorations, lamp pulls...[1]

In other words, it's time to update the top-level categories (actually, it's been time for the last couple of years, but the thought of recategorizing hundreds of pages...ugh.) So for the meantime, I guess this is basically 3D stuff, mostly excepting lampwork.

[1]If you don't see these things, it's because I haven't gotten around to posting them yet. Jewelry has at least the advantage of easier to move into a mini photography studio to shoot, unlike the current incarnation of my bead curtain, or my first beaded plant hanger.
