I've seen the caffeine molecule pendants before, cast in silver, but I like your beaded one better. It has more intricacy & texture.
amazing! i love the fortune cookies!
the molecule ones are geeky sheik! LOVE em!
Very cute! Your fortune cookies are awesome! I love that the fortune comes right out! Too cool!
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you and thank-you
, the molecules are inspired from the cast ones, but they were very expensive.... and I had previously bought a coffee cup from the same company with bad results...and I wanted more detail, like the double joints.
Absolutely LOVE both of these! Does the fortune cookie slide over like that?!? AMAZING stuff
Yes, the fortune cookies slide. I was inspired by a metal necklace that is on uncommongoods.com, but was too expensive to buy ;_; .
I'd love to make a molecule necklace! Can you give some details on how you made it? I've not quite puzzled it out yet. Yours looks fantastic!
I'll try do explain as easy as posible but I am not sure I can:
I made them with quill (? tube ?) beads, various metal round beads and used 26 gauge beading wire. I used the wire to make the basic shape and on the double tube I went through the hole twice with the wire, I used clamp beads in some places to hold the bead on. I would have liked to use a thicker gauge of wire because its less prone to snapping but I would have limited the beads I could have used with anything thincker. You have to be very gentle while bending because of this.
