41  Whatever Lola Wants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: June 09, 2008 04:05:55 PM
This is a collection of things I have been working on, but my favorite (chosen for the title) is the faux bling necklace I cut from 1/8" birch. I used to make pretty paper cutout necklaces when I would babysit a long time ago, and that was my inspiration for this necklace. It's very simple, but it was quite difficult to make.


I call it "Whatever Lola Wants"!







Jet Lepidoptera set:







Thoracic:



Jet Lustre, chandelier earrings:



Jet Blossom:



Madame Butterfly:







That's all for now! Everything else is drying. Smiley These are all cut from Birch, 1/8" thickness. Any images that are not my original artwork are in public domain or are used with permission.

Thanks for checking them out! I'd love to know what you think, or if you have any suggestions.

42  The Intrusion in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: June 04, 2008 01:36:32 PM
Since I cut this piece I have had a lot of encounters with 8-legged friends! At least three instances where spiders were "out to get me". Black Widows are out and about here. I had originally named it "The Nightmare" but recent events caused me to change the title to "The Intrusion". I enjoyed making it! It is cut from Birch, 1/8" thickness, and measures 3.5" high.

43  Eccentric Bangle in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: June 04, 2008 11:47:30 AM
Hey! I just finished these bracelets today. They are cut from 1/4" Birch wood. I really love them! I like it in black, but I'm painting the others different fun colors later.

Pictures! (thanks to my mom for modeling!):











They are fun to wear! Cheesy What do you think?

44  Lotus Blossom and Wings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: June 02, 2008 06:52:54 PM
Hello! I cut both of these from 1/8" mirrored acrylic with a Hegner. They are so beautiful and reflective, I really love this type of acrylic!

Blossom Necklace:





Lepidoptera Earrings:





Those are the second version of the winged earrings. I made the first pair a few weeks ago and decided they were too frail. The remix is lovely and sturdy. Thanks for checking them out!

45  A Lady Ought in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: June 02, 2008 12:57:39 PM
I have yet to decide the fate of this piece. I like it as a brooch, I like it as a pendant, I like it as wall art. I cut this piece from 1/8" Birch with a Hegner. I have painted it in a satin black finish to preserve the wood, but also enhance its natural beauty and grains. It took longer for me to sketch out this piece in Inkscape than it did to cut it! By the way, if you don't have access to Illustrator, Inkscape is a wonderful (free) program!

Every element not originally drawn by me is used with permission. This piece is meant to depict "proper" dreams for a lady. It was incredibly fun for me to make, because I usually don't dream of any of these things! I dream of power tools, zombies, and sometimes world domination. I enjoyed exploring a more feminine side of myself. I hope you think it's fun too!







I'm off to cut my spider intrusion now!  Smiley

46  Stranger to Affection (butterfly, knight, octopi, children) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: May 29, 2008 10:57:37 AM
These are some more of the acrylic and wooden silhouettes I have been working on! All images not created by me are derivative works used with permission or in public domain. They are 1/8" thick and were created with a combination of a Hegner scroll saw and tiny dental (of the rotary variety) tools. I go through the grits when sanding the wood, but the acrylic needs no finishing after it is cut.

Stranger to Affection (modern take on butterfly jewelry):



Suspended:



In Shining Armor:



Tiny Octopi:



Show me Yours:



I am working on some drawings in Illustrator meant to depict a woman's dream escaping from her head and I'm really excited about tracing and cutting those to share!

47  Pocket full of posies in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: May 15, 2008 04:27:31 PM
I love this necklace! It was supposed to be for my mother originally, but she's really into tiny/dainty jewelry these days so she asked me to cut her something else. But I think it turned out really sweet and full of whimsy. You can see the details a lot better in life, the photographs don't do the piece justice. Thanks for checking it out!





P.S. This is based on a vintage illustration that is now in public domain.

48  Chandelier (Lustre) Set in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: May 11, 2008 03:20:56 PM
I made a few pairs of chandelier earrings recently and decided I wanted a necklace to match! Just because. These are cut from lightweight mirrored acrylic.





What do you think about the necklace? At 4 inches high, it is a rather bold accessory. Thanks for checking them out!

49  Chandelier Mirror in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: April 28, 2008 10:54:48 AM
Hello! I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the chandelier I just finished cutting from perspex (mirrored plastic) with a scroll saw. I apologize for the poor quality photo! I was very excited and wanted to capture it quickly. The way it resized, the edges look kind of odd, but the whole piece is very smooth in real life. What do you think?



Oh! It's almost 2 feet wide.

50  Mirrored Goldfish in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by UntamedMenagerie on: April 22, 2008 02:18:33 PM
Hi! I cut this pendant/brooch combo from mirrored perspex with a scroll saw. The pin/bail finding on the back was attached with E6000. I have a question for all you acrylic/perspex/plexi workers out there. Do you know of any glues that can be used on the back of mirrored plastic? The glue had a slight reaction with the backing. It's not very noticeable, but I want to prevent it in the future. I guess it happened while the glue was curing and it absorbed it. This pendant measures 4 inches wide. I've also made it in black, and several other sizes.

I'm making a larger fish (24" wide) to use as a mirror in my bathroom. An octopus also, for somewhere else in my house. Still thinking! I'll post those on the Home Goods forum if anyone is interested in seeing them!
