1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: ring blanks?? on: June 29, 2010 04:28:49 PM
I got mine on eBay. I did find some at a small local bead store, but that probably won't help unless you're in the Ottawa area, haha. But as far as I can tell, they don't have them at Joanns, but maybe Michaels?

I found some on eBay for pretty cheap. Otherwise, yeah, broken watches are good. Plus it's really fun to pry them apart!  Grin

Yo Vermonters! I'm here at Marlboro College, right near Brattleboro, absolutely loving it, I'm from NY originally...things here are pretty amazing. =)

The earbud earrings were actually pretty easy to make, I just took some broken headphones and cut off the earbuds. Then I took an eye pin and cut it so it was pretty short...then I dipped it in hot glue and stuck it in the little hole at the bottom of the earbud where the wire went...then I put the loop of the eye pin on an earring wire. Does that make any sense? =)
Anyways. Thanks!!

Wow. I've been neglecting Craftster lately...=/
But....I have a TON of pictures of all my new recon'd jewelry, so....without further ado...the stuff!!
First, a vintage reconstructed bracelet: I basically just restored the bracelet and added the cool bow clasp thing:

OK, next: Some reconstructed beaded bracelets: (The smalller one is a kids' bracelet):

Um...next are some memory wire bracelets I made with some more beads mostly from old jewelry pieces, etc.:

And my favorite, the purple and white one, all by itself:

Next, a charm bracelet with just random buttons, charms, etc. on:

Next- Rings!!
All together:

Just the button rings:

The other ones (from left, little shoes, rubber ducky, flower (from an earring) and wings (also from an earring):

AND NOW! My earring board:

And some close-ups:


Black beads and wire:

Orange beads and cowrie shells:

Toothpaste and floss and brown buttons:

Little loops and punctuation:

Peace signs and Leaves:

Peace Signs (again, because they looked kind of strange in the first picture, I think) and garden tools:

Swirly with purple beads (sorry for the crappy quality):


Retro green hoops:

Yay. OK, necklaces (and that's it, I promise Smiley)

First, pie necklace. This is so simple, but I love it because:


Next, Across the Universe necklace. Not altogether sure if I like it...what do y'all think?

OK next- decoupaged lady necklace:

And...AWESOME junk necklace- with random things- beads, charms, bells, awesome stuff. I ♥ this necklace. Do you?

NEXT-Bottlecap necklace-pretty simple, but I love it:

Punctuation necklace (goes with the earrings):

Glass rings on ribbon necklace:

And Steampunk-y necklace:

Wow. That's it. Thanks for putting up with the crazy long post and all the pictures. PLEASE tell me what you think! I ♥ comments!!!

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Buffy themed earrings on: December 15, 2008 01:04:11 PM
How about a Buffy B? You know the B I mean? The logo?

That would be cool- don't know if I could make it look at all like that, but...if I could, it would be awesome!

Thanks everyone!!!! Awesome ideas!!! =)

Awesome! I don't like Twilight, but your shirt almost convinced me to (almost)

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Zebra Print and Red Lace on: November 20, 2008 01:06:17 PM
So I haven't posted in a while...classes  Angry ugh...but anyway...
I bought this skirt at the thrift store for like a dollar....of course I didn't take a picture of it  Grin
but it fell at about my mid calf...but I'm 5 feet tall....
anyways, it was kind of tiered and zebra print (!I LOVE ZEBRA PRINT!) and had sequins all over it! It was awesomeness =)

But of course, kind of ugly as it was....so, I made it into a dress with red lace and red ribbon lacing on the back:

front close up:


close up of lacing:

close up of halter part:

YAY! So I'm pretty pleased with it-how about y'all?
I love comments!!! so...tell me what you think!!!
