1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Cupcake ring and mini doughnuts!! on: May 20, 2013 05:28:42 PM
This is what I've done with my time today. I tried my hand at mini doughnuts for a decoden case and made a cupcake ring. I'm not sure about the ring. What do you think? Would you wear it?

Thanks for looking!
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Owl Bracelet on: January 02, 2012 02:02:26 PM
This is my newest bracelet! I love it and I wear it all the time. My boyfriend asked me if it was a Fossil bracelet. I love Fossil jewelry but you can't beat a $5 in materials, homemade bracelet. Wink What do you think?

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Charm and Bug Bracelets! :) *EDIT* How the bug bracelet was made. on: October 29, 2011 07:07:26 PM
I've been on a jewelry kick lately after shopping at Dillards and looking at all their expensive jewelry! Here's what I've come up with. Smiley Would you wear them?


Thank you for all of the comments! Smiley

The first one is basically five lengths of chain attached at each end to the connector findings. Each chain is connected to the chain(s) beside it with jump rings at various places. This made a sort of "fabric". I attached toggle components to the connectors and that made the basic bracelet.

I have the three big charms you see (key, bug, heart) and all of the beads attached with eye pins and jump rings to the five underlying chains.

This bracelet took A LOT of adjustments to make sure that the eye pins and the charms, which are all placed diagonally, did not distort the original shape of the chain "fabric." I wanted to keep the top and bottom of the bracelet pretty parallel.

My major issue was that attaching one side of the eye pin to the wrong link on a chain would distort the whole look of the bracelet. There was the shape of the chain "fabric" to watch out for as well as the other pins and charms which would pull and distort the bracelet even more if the placement of one component was off even by one link of the chain.

I think that the next time I can bring myself to attempt this kind of bracelet I will use a larger chain as a base!

Does anyone have any suggestions?


4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dia de los Muertos Earrings! on: October 26, 2011 03:31:56 PM
I made these on a whim the other night. It wasn't until I baked the clay (and the posts into them) that I realized how large and heavy they are for stud earrings. They stay on my ear but I'm worried that after awhile the weight of them will pull out of the earring back. I like them for a first try though. Smiley

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Moderately big, colorful, buttony bow! on: September 30, 2009 06:15:11 PM
So I say moderately big because I've seen some pretty huge bows out there. I came up with the idea for this in my Human Resource Management class....

I'd like to know what you think. Vomit inducing color overload? Too hideously large? Just peachy?

Thanks guys!

That's a great idea! I have tons of shirts that I never wear anymore...they just may become new bags.  Grin
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cupid's Automatic on: March 26, 2009 11:10:09 PM
So I was listening to Geek In The Pink by Jason Mraz and I heard this...

"Cupid's automatic must have fired multiple shots at her
Because she fall in love too often that's what's the matter"

And then this happened...

It was just a plain black wallet and then I painted onto it Cupid and his heat.  Grin

Thanks for looking!

I love this artwork! Did you free-hand this? How wanderful!!!! Kiss

Thanks! I drew it on paper first and then painted it on the purse

He is a character from a YA novel, actually they are up to three. He is a skeleton who from the middle ages who is still fighting the guy who killed him and his girlfriend. He is also a sort of supernatural detective.

That sounds kind of cool!

Love it. Makes me think of Skullduggery Pleasant.

Thanks, but who or what is a Skullduggery Pleasant?  Undecided
