Looks like antigirl's finally spilling a few of her own crafty secrets.

The local street artist and graphic designer insists that she's "never not working" -- and after seeing her countless murals, wheat pastes, paintings, and collages, we believe her. Now, she says, it's our turn.

Enter "handbook", a very antigirl collection of how-to guides for a few things she's been creating in her studio.

Her latest entries include her "drunk & high" champagne top necklace and an x-rated pineapple slush that came from a poptail (popsicle + cocktail) recipe with a heavy pour.

Overall, the handbook is clean and easy to use. She says she'll be adding projects as she tries them out, and typically uses basic household tools -- sometimes, with a splash of hard liquor.

We dig her button necklace and her cocktail party invites, but honestly, antigirl had us at her wood paper pendant.

"If you lovelovelove newsprint, wood, and jewelry as much as I do, you should make it, you'll wear it a lot too," she writes. "It's also really easy and quick. Make it in the morning and wear it out that evening. Simple."

Just the way we like it.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
