hey guys, i just have a quick ?....what is the difference between dead soft, full hard and half hard wire. I want to order some sterling silver wire but dont know what the difference is. also this will be used for jewlery making so it has to hold up pretty well, yet still be easy to manuver....thanks in advance
Ok, so you know how sometimes you doubt your work? Everything i make, i give to my family and friends first to see if they like it. They always say they do, but I don't think they'd tell me if they didnt like my stuff. So, I am asking you craftster gods/goddess' for your opinions. Do you like/ would you wear earrings like these? I'm planning on making them for Christmas gifts, and I just want some honest opinions on them. I really like them, so I know I'd wear them, but what do you think? Just to preface...I use all sterling silver findings & chain, and either glass beads or gemstones. Ok...here they are....
these are freshwater pearls..
thank you for looking...sorry so many pics....positive/negative feedback appreciated!!!
Hey girls and boys....So I just got a last minute invite to a Halloween party Friday night. I'm not a little girl, so I'm not dressing in anything 'sexy', 'slutty' or revealing. I am pretty sure I want to go 80's like. But I need ideas. I'm going to crimp my hair, I have hot pink/neon green sneakers i can wear, but thats it. I'm tapped for ideas...and $$$. Please craftsters...I know you have great ideas!! Help me!!
hey, i saw something pretty similar in Marie Claire October 2004, and also in Lucky October 2004, but didnt feel like spending $150. So i took some copper wire, silver & copper (I'm waiting on my sterling order from Fire Mountain..love them), and random sparkley beads..the bigger the better...and this is what i came up with. what do you guys think? i think when i do it w/ sterling it will be a little nicer, but i think they came out pretty cool as is.
Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is where i shouldd post this? I'm asking for a sewing machine for christmas and I dont know where to start. I have a really old one that was my great-aunts, but i dont know how to use it and its really big and bulky. i was hoping to find something easy to use, and something thats not too big. Any suggestions or advice would be helpful, thank you!!
