41  Stylish 1950's Style Bracelet in Beads: Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: January 08, 2009 12:21:52 PM


So simple but yet so stylish!

I used vintage lucite beads and a strong fishing line.
I found the pearls in a bag along with other broken vintage bits in a
charity shop and it cost me around 50 pence for the whole bag.
This bracelet cost me around 30 pence to make!

I think this is my favorite piece of jewelery I ever made.
The beads is beautiful and goes perfectly with most of my vintage
dresses ans lucite handbags.

42  Retro TV Dinner Notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: January 08, 2009 12:03:26 PM


I guess I have a thing for TV dinners.
Not that I ever had one in my entire life and I don't think I want to but
I do love the retro kitsch.  Grin

I made this back in 2004 when I was working at a workshop in rsta
(Located in Stockholm, Sweden) called Textil och Pappersverkstan
(Textile and Paper workshop).

I printed two pictures of a TV dinner, laminated them, made holes in a
bunch of paper and added the wire binding.

43  1950's Style Pink Pearl Necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: January 08, 2009 11:45:46 AM
I totally stole this idea from my maternal grandmother who made necklaces
like this in the 1950's.

I used vintage pink pearls and a strong fishing line.
I found the pearls in a bag along with other broken vintage necklaces in a
charity shop and it cost me around 50 pence for the whole bag.
This necklace cost me around 30 pence to make!

It has a 1950's feel to it and it looks amazing on, with the right outfit, of course.

44  Burlesque Style Lingonberry Necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: January 08, 2009 11:33:15 AM
I totally stole this idea from my maternal grandmother who made necklaces
like this in the 1950's.
I call this the Lingonberry necklace since the beads looks like Lingonberries
(a red eatable berry who grows in the Swedish forest, read more about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lingonberry)
 
I think it has a burlesque feel to it and it looks amazing on.

I used strong fishing line and plastic faceted beads.
This necklace cost me less than 1 to make.
 


Tutorial:
Cut a piece of fishing line, approx 1 meter or more. (You'll need it, trust me.)
Save a piece of line in each end for the closing clasps.
Start in one end by slipping 3 beads on the line and then tie a double knot.
(Make sure it's tight.)
Leave about 1 cm in between the knots.
Just repeat the same thing over and over until you're satisfied with the length.

45  Wonderful Pink 1940's Style Hair Flowers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: January 06, 2009 01:03:44 PM


My favorite hair flowers.
An easy and cheap way to doll up a dull hairdo and to get the pinup look.
All you need is fake flowers, hair clips and a good glue.
(I prefer Bostik All Purpose glue.)
