61  Button bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by elowezil on: April 15, 2008 03:39:16 PM
I made this bracelet for my hairdresser whose salon is decorated in these accent colors.  She admired a similar one I was wearing when I had my hair cut recently.

62  Playing/claying with buttons in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by elowezil on: April 07, 2008 12:37:47 PM
This top came with a boring plastic button on it (roll-neck Tshirt) so I decided to replace the button with my own one:

This necklace is for a friend who loves blue:

Black clay stamped with rubber stamp and then sponged with Lumiere metallic paints.

64  Re: New Zealand only Round 2 (Signup March 16 - 24 SEND 14 April) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by elowezil on: April 05, 2008 03:13:48 PM
Glad I got my swap off early so now I can sit back and wait to see what everyone else gets!  I always check in on the NZ forum every day to see what's up and enjoy reading what everyone is doing.  BubPhoe what are you making with the felt that you mentioned?  I've been doing a lot with felt lately - it's so easy (no overlocking of seams or fraying!), so if you have any small offcuts you don't want to throw away, I'd be happy to do a swap of some kind with you.  Where do you get the best selection of coloured felt?  This bracelet is one of a few I've made with felt (my DD sells them to her friends, or mostly just keeps them ...!  I really MUST get my etsy shop set up and make myself some $$ so I can buy more stuff!  The world needs more 'stuff'!!!

I've also made a few more pairs of chandelier earrings like I made for amc5's swap package. 
Happy Sunday everyone!

65  Shrunken chandelier earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by elowezil on: April 03, 2008 02:10:04 AM
I made these earrings for a swap (glad you liked them Amy!).  Stamped the chandelier image onto shrink plastic, cut them out, zapped with a heat gun and then embellished them with rhinestones/diamantes/whatever those blingy-things are called!

I was very happy with the way they turned out anyway.

66  2 new necklaces (pics now visible!) in Beads: Completed Projects by elowezil on: April 02, 2008 06:22:01 PM
First post in beading projects (most of my creations fall into the other jewelry category).  I love these little velvet flowers but unfortunately don't have very many and am not sure if I can get them again, so have to be cautious how I use them.

Been having a play. 
Bird made the same way as the brooches I've been having fun with, but this one is a pendant.

Leather offcut stamped with Stazon and sewn with metallic thread, then beads added.  Cord made from 3 different fibers twisted together and then sewn.

Beads, buttons, fibers oh my ...!

MOP chocker  - buttons with copper beads in the middle and hung on copper chain.

You like ...??

69  Crochet wire heart brooch = problem! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by elowezil on: March 20, 2008 11:38:03 PM
I recently asked on this board, as well as the crochet board, about crocheting with wire, as I had seen a heart shaped brooch in a store awhile ago (for mega bucks) and wanted to make one! Thanks to some tips received on crocheting/knitting with wire, here's my result.  It's black coated copper jewelry wire.  I crocheted a long string and bent this into a heart shape outline, then wove wire and beads between and in and around. The shape is a bit odd but I proved that the concept works and I can actually do it (with a little fine-tuning!). Only problem is ... how do I attach the brooch pin on the back without it showing through ...Huh?? Any suggestions? I didn't think of that before I started, so may have to go back to the store I saw a similar one in and have a looksee there!  Thanks - I'm sure some of you jewelry geniuses will have some answers for me ... pretty please??!  (or maybe I'll just have to put a jump ring onto it and use it as a pendant instead!)

70  Another button bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by elowezil on: March 20, 2008 03:09:21 PM
These things are addictive!  We're headed into autumn down here in the Southern Hemisphere, so these colours are more suited to fall/winter.
