11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wire wrapped pendants. ~~Img Heavy~~ on: February 16, 2008 08:58:10 AM
I went on a wire wrapping spree today!  Cheesy



It was my first time trying this technique and it was great fun, although i now have numerous holes in my fingers from the wire!! Some of the edges are a bit rough so just pretend you dont see them  Wink

Unfortunately the wire isnt anywhere near even on this one but i still really like it. The circle bead came from an old belt that i didnt like (otherwords became too small to use) as did the smaller beads with it. The circle bead with the hole in it is 4 and a half centimeters in diameter, i forgot to ask hubby to do a size shot as he was the one who took the photos for me.




Its hard to see but all of the wrapped stones are a gorgeously deep but shiny blood red colour, really really nice. I think i prefer them wrapped in silver wire rather than the gold but i ran out  Sad Still the gold doesnt look too bad.....






They all have a little hoop on the back to thread a chain or cord through to wear as pendants. Some of them have the hoop on show some dont.




I cant wait to get some more silver wire so that i can make that one again in the colour i prefer  Grin

So anywayz theres my first post of things iv made, sorry its pic heavy, im really pleased with how they've turned out, what do you think? Any tips hints or suggestion for when i get more wire are appreciated as i really enjoyed making them but as its my first time i probably messed up quite a lot!!

Thanks.
12  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Old Digital Camera on: January 29, 2008 06:15:32 AM
Somehow my digital camera got broken Angry

I had to fork out for a new one, but just cant seem to part with the now useless old one. We went many places together and it took photos of some of my fondest memories such as my wedding. I am however struggling to think of something both crafty and usefull to do with it. Could anyone give me any suggestions please?
