Thanks, I don't know why I didn't see that before, the stuff I used was actually the 3D crystal laquer from there, since thats what they showed in the pendant-making-kit.  That stuff is non-toxic and doesn't smell at all.

Oh those pendants are gorgeous! What kind of wire did you use?

Thanks, I used 20 gauge wire.  It says it's jewelry wire and that it's silver, but I don't really know whether that means silver metal or silver in color.   

I made a few more with some clear fried marbles and I really like how they turned out. 

Plus! I stopped by Michaels today and all of their marbles and things were 50% off, so it was about a dollar a bag.  I stocked up.

My weekend projects:




The most simple, but my favorite:


Now I need to get some more marbles and some thicker wire.

My favorite is the green button one.  I would totally wear that.

Now I have a problem.  I didn't want to start a new topic for this as it is related to this project.  As I've been wearing them around, the laquer that I used on them is getting softer, I think from being heated up around my neck (Yes, that's how hot I am, I melt jewelry with my presence.)   So then they are getting less shiny and more beat up after just a day or so.  If I put a layer of mod podge over it do you think it would fix the problem?  Anyone have a better idea?  Or an alternative to toxin-filled resin that I can use in the future?

Shocked

CamOovas those are AWESOMER than MINE!

Where did you find such pretty tiny pictures?! And thinking of thumbtacks?! SO crafty.



Wow, thanks. I think all those ones are out of a Dr.'s Foster and Smith Aquarium catalogue, the flower ones are silk aquarium plants. Smiley  I made a bunch of chicken ones too from a Murray McMurray (chicken supplier) catalogue.   I have a request for Biance tacks, but finding tiny Biance's is a little more difficult. I don't think they make catalogues for her.  (Catalogues I think are easier, cuz they have small pictures off all the things they are selling, versus whole-page pictures in magazines)

Catalogue sounds funny in my head now.
838  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Why are you Vegetarian/Vegan? on: February 26, 2008 01:54:30 PM
I hate skipping to the end of a thread and replying without reading the entire thing, but I will come back and read them all, I swear.

So anyway, I've half-heartedly wanted to be vegetarian for most of my life, but my parents pretty much just said no when I was younger and I didn't put up much of a fight.  Then in high school one of my friends went vegan and did the whole bit where you try to gross out and humiliate anyone you see eating meat (to this friend- you know who you are!)  And so, being the rebel I am, I tried to enjoy my meat more disgustingly, all the while feeling more and more guilty as I learned more about factory farming and such.  Then I read Old Macdonalds Factory Farm and decided I couldn't do it anymore.  So I told myself I would be vegetarian for a month and see how rough it was.  Turns out, it's pretty easy, so I just never went back.  I occasionally crave a Burger King double cheese burger or Hardees ham and cheese, or some Carl Buddig thin sliced lunch meat, and if you get me boozed up enough I might crack, but for the most part it doesn't really affect my life too much, other than the fact that animal rights is a slippery slope.   So you can now find me protesting the circus and pamphleting movie theater bathroom stalls.   For the animal-rights-record, I am also as vegan as I can be.  When obtaining milk/eggs/dairy, I get them from humane sources like my parents chickens, and I've written to many a company asking about their practices before I make a habit of patronizing them. 

Anyway, I think it would solve a lot of the world's problems if we could just convince people to stop eating meat.  Or at least cut down drastically. Feel free to pm me if you would like to hear one of my many spiels.  Smiley

Oooh, I love the Arabian!  I'm a sucker for horses.  Some prints of these would make great greeting cards.

Pretty!  I'm not generally into felted wall hangings, but I really like this one!
