1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / "Fiesta Wear!" necklace on: December 04, 2008 07:59:59 AM
I made this with black agate and glass for the base. The colored beads are agates, dyed howlite, and glass. My fave flowers are pressed glass with black Swarovski crystals for centers. There's a total of 6 strands.
Try really hard to ignore my gigantic face.  Tongue



Anyways, I miss Texas and this was a little cure for some homesickness I've been feeling.
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Mucha bisque tissue box on: November 17, 2008 12:00:45 PM
This was for a swap but my partner had a baby and is MIA. Many months have passed so I figured it was safe to post the pictures of my item sent. I haven't glazed since I was in middle school.





I need practice but I'm still rather happy with the shading I attempted. Although I made a boo-boo on a color in the background.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Blue Helix (Shell, Pearl, Seed Beads) on: May 26, 2008 10:15:20 AM
I took a class at the local bead store from my friend. This is a variation on the fringe or caterpillar bracelet and is fun to make.  Cheesy
I think this might be in the latest Australian magazine of "Beads Etc..."
The seed beads are a "bead soup" that happened when my craftmate fell and my seed beads went EVERYWHERE! Luckily, the colors that popped open actually went well together.







4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Summer Melons Chillin' On Ice on: May 23, 2008 11:49:46 AM
yeah, i fell for the summer colors because i tend to always make things in autumn colors.
AND i have noticed that it is really hard to get decent watermelon in montana. i used to live in texas and delicious watermelon was everywhere...sigh.. .

anyways, this necklace has:

yellow jade (cantalope)
calcite (cantalope)
prehinite (honeydew)
rose 'quartz' (watermelon)
peridot (honeydew)
moonstone (ice)
and miyuki seed beads



i made some earrings but i haven't finished them because i've been unable to find rose 'quartz' in the size and shape i want.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / METROPOLIS (film) inspired necklaces on: May 23, 2008 11:23:52 AM
I took apart a long necklace of silver plated snake rope from the 1980's or so. I've the necklace for awhile. I don't have a before picture. But it always reminded me of the Art Deco era especially the European styles.
So, I'm calling them the Metropolis Necklaces. It's a movie from 1927 and it is amazingly ahead of it's time.

I'm thinking of making a differnt S hook from this. Something more simple.
I used Jasper stones with this one.


Black Onyx and Sponge Coral.


they're pretty chunky necklaces.
but i like them, they're kinda funkay.

this was inspired by warmer weather and a huge sale at the local bead store.







it was really hard to get a good picture with my sad camera.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Bead Sale is killing my pocket book. on: February 28, 2008 12:03:52 PM
a local bead store is having a huge clearance sale (75% off!!!!) and i can't stop going back.

i just got 1lb 2oz. of great quality glass beads for $44.... during my lunch break because i couldn't stop thinking about it. now, i've gotta think of ways to use them. oh and buy MORE stuff to string them!

i've done this like three times this week and now this sale has my pocketbook aching!

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Silver and MISHMASH necklace on: February 25, 2008 11:58:39 AM
I made this necklace while watching a really really REALLY terrible zombie movie.
It doesn't lay right with this shirt and I need to tweek a whole bunch of stuff on it.



i used a camera phone and this is the best focus i could get.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / i left my craft bag at home on: February 25, 2008 11:49:27 AM

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Zebra Wire - what do you think of this brand? on: February 07, 2008 09:08:38 AM
Have any of you used this wire for any projects? I was thinking of ordering some online but I haven't seen it in person. I'm not sure of the hardness of the wire and how it is to work with.
Such as, does the plated color enamel flake off if you coil it?
Is it dead soft or half hard?

Thanks for your reviews!!!
