1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Multi-chain necklace with wire-wrapped harp on: August 14, 2014 11:39:09 AM


I started out trying to make a wire-wrapped harp pendant for a friend, and while I think I captured the instrument, I didn't find any appropriate spots to add pretty beads or such. As it turned out, it just seemed too plain, so I thought I'd try and make a full necklace to make it more special. I think the results are okay, but I'm not entirely sure of the addition of the harp. Any ideas?

C&C appreciated Smiley
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sleeve for tablet & accessories on: August 13, 2014 03:10:31 AM
My father in law recently bought a tablet, and knowing that I like making stuff, he asked if I could make a pouch that could hold it and some accessories (stylus, charger, USB cable) so I set to work. The fabric was sourced from an old pair of trousers and a damaged fleece snuggie (for padding).

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Peas in a pod pendant on: July 10, 2014 06:18:47 AM


Last week, we (=my husband, sister, mother and I)  were invited for a picnic by my best friend, and here mum would be cooking. She always makes such great food, she goes all out! I wanted to make a nice thank-you gift. I made this pea pod pendant to represent her two girls (on top) and one boy (on the bottom). Unfortunately, I didn't have beads that were the same size, but in reality, they're pretty close. The pendant is about 1,25" big. We had a delicious picnic and an amazing get together Smiley
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tree of life in a triangle on: July 10, 2014 06:09:46 AM


I made this pendant for my best friend Anna (she was my maid of honour at my wedding). Like me, she loves things just a bit quirky. I decided to go off the beaten track and try out a triangular setting for this tree, and go with iridescent beads. Good call: she admitted to not generally being a fan of tree-jewellery, but really liking this one because it's different. And well, probably helps that it's hand made by a good friend Smiley
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Apron-mod on: July 05, 2014 03:26:51 PM


We celebrated my brother-in-law's 26th birthday today, and my husband and I were stumped for a gift. The guy always buys whatever it is he wants or needs... We still had to get my sister in law a belated birthday gift too, and we bought her this apron:

We thought it would be nice to get BIL a fancy apron too. Alas, only stupid boring aprons were available... What's a girl to do, but craft the appropriate item herself? I bought a plain one, as well as a white dish towel and I took scissors, buttons and needle and thread to hand for this custom apron. It scored high marks Smiley

Also: there are four white buttons on the "shirt", but the third one didn't quite capture the light.

A friend of mine pinned this wire wrapped pendant design on her wish list, and I decided to see if I could make something similar. I've been wrapping a bunch of trees of life lately, and I wanted a change. I hope my friend will like it!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Blossoming tree of life on: July 01, 2014 03:22:35 PM
I wrapped this tree of life for the daughter of one of my cousins (I guess that makes her my first cousin, once removed?). She's ~20 now, and she's currently going through a bit of a rough patch. I thought she could use a bit of a pick me up Smiley
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Quickrelease paracord bracelets on: July 01, 2014 02:59:50 PM
My husband an I are leaving for a hiking holiday soon (hurray!) and I'm preparing a lightweight survival kit, just in case. I made each of us a quick release paracord bracelet using this tutorial, a blue one for me and a white one (not grey, sorry for crappy photo!) for my husband. Because having the rope around your arm is a whole lot more practical than toting around a few feet of loose rope! I hope we won't need to unravel and use them.


9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bare rainbow tree of life on: June 22, 2014 01:38:48 PM


I was raiding my mother's craft stash when I discovered she had several colours of metal wire on hand, and after getting her permission to yank them away and do my thing with them, I decided I would make a rainbow tree of life for an LGBT friend. She's been trying to conceive for over a year now, running into several medical problems, so I wanted to make her a good luck charm. As the tree symbolises life, I hope that new life will soon be on its way for her! I also think she'll like the LGBT Pride symbolism of the colours. First time making a tree without beads, that's strangely harder than with beads! But I'm happy with the result Smiley

At the rate at which I've been making tree of life pendants, you might think I'm trying to make a forest of them Tongue All using the same set of beads, because I haven't had time to go raid my mum's stash some more, and I needed to have these finished by Friday, as they're thank you gifts for my teachers this term.



I added a birds nest with two eggs on the center one, as one of our teachers just returned from maternity leave at the beginning of the term. She gave birth to twins. We're giving thanks as a group, buying each teacher a box of chocolates (except for the teacher that doesn't eat added sugars, she's getting tea) and I thought something more permanent would be a nice addition Smiley
