Okay, No one may find Shambala bracelets that spectacular but I am not usually the jewelry making kind of girl. I had to keep muttering "Left, right, under, over, left, right, under, over....". I sounded like I was insane until I messed up, then I sounded like a pirate. But I managed to get a couple of these little guys done. I was proud of them and sent them off to their new home for the IYP swap.
I decided to attempt one of those awesome Skeleton Key Necklaces I always see. I love them so much but I have issues with embellishing. I stink at it. Bunny1Kenobi was kind enough to be my guinea pig for the IYP swap. I tried several different variations and I went with this one. Now I have a ton of those little metal roses! So many ideas for them! I added some gears o make this a little more steampunk.
I am terrible at embellishing and jewelry making. Terrible! I put on my big girl pants and tried really, really hard to make bunny1kenobi some steampunk inspired stuff for the IYP swap. Here is my attempt... I found this locket that you could fill up the inside of. I got a dragonfly charm and glued it to the front. I had a watch component piece that I glued inside and put a tiny key in it as well. The key can float around.
This is the purse that I made for bunny1kenobi for the IYP Swap. We both had this fabric pinned on our Pinterest boards and I was dying to buy it for something. I had to scale the pattern up to fit the entire scene on the fabric. I have never scaled a pattern before so I sort of psyched myself out when I did it. Ended up not being that big of a deal.
I love this pattern because it's easy, it turns out nice, and it showcases focus fabric so well!
It has a black and gray speckled fabric and the interior is a white on white ivy fabric.
