1  i've learned to wire wrap and to coral! plus some other 'regular' stuff in Beads: Completed Projects by mariska on: November 15, 2005 06:57:58 AM
so here's what i've been up to lately. making more and more earrings. i swear i have so many pairs by now that i don't even get the chance to wear them all  Undecided

after i found some thin copper wire in the cellar i knew instantly that it was time for some wire wrapping. i had just learned the technique and was impatient to try it out:


these are kind of big, definitely party-earrings


the mother of pearl pieces were too lovely to toletare any other beads next to them


these were made after the tutorial here http://jewelrymaking.allinfoabout.com/features/coraling.html. i used fishing line, so that's why they look kind of stiff


i found a boring necklace on the sale, took it apart and got those green malachite beads


after all the 'colour-challenged' earrings, i decided i needed some colour boost:


and i've joined the cluster-ring-club! here's my first. the wooden beads look like rowanberries, very autumny, isn't it? Wink

3  some buttons are better than others in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by mariska on: October 21, 2005 06:40:02 AM
...at least for making earrings!!  Wink

at a craft store buying some other stuff, i noticed these cute black and white buttons. as it turned out, they were the last two and i simply could not leave them at the store!


inspired by the find, i looked through the piles of buttons and i found these small rectangular ones, obviously made for making jewellery!


now i've had a taste and i want more!!! Smiley

5  shoes'n'purses aka my new fabulous hobobag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mariska on: September 15, 2005 04:19:49 AM
as soon as i found this fantastic fabric with shoes, purses, bangles, belts etc, i KNEW it would make a great bag!  normally i am a *very* impatient sewer and i rarely finish the things i start, but i was so inspired by this fabric and i desperately wanted this bag so i made everything carefully and just took my time to make it.
i got a lot of help from this site, especially the tutorial by sushimifune http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=14604.0

here's my bag, with a cd case for size reference. it is pretty big, because i like to/have to carry a lot of stuff with me


an inside view. pocket; and two coloured zipper. i simply could not decide whether to use white or hot pink zipper, so i joined the two different coloured zippers! Smiley


close up of the strap


hope you like it! Smiley

6  red and silver: 2 bracelet-earring sets (img heavy!) in Beads: Completed Projects by mariska on: August 17, 2005 06:07:52 AM
my very first bracelet! Smiley  i used different kinds of red glass beads.


me wearing it:


i really liked how it turned out so i decided to make some matching earrings:


many of the things i usually make are quite colourful and big and attention-demanding, for a change i wanted to make something i could wear anytime and with anything. here they are: bracelet and earrings with wire, glass beads and silver danglings (which make this sweet little sound when i move Cheesy):



close-up of the bracelet:



hope the pics work now!!!
