Super cool!  Is that an InkCircles pattern? 

I love her!

It's pretty good sized, like hand sized, so it's more of a coffee table decoration or looks great hanging up as a Suncatcher bauble! 
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best way to drill through copper pipe? on: January 01, 2015 10:28:53 PM
Regular drill bits will work just fine.  Spritz with a lubricant like wd40 to make it easier. 

Copper is fairly easy to drill.  A press will make it safer and easier to keep in place.  Dremels will drill copper pipe perfectly, and you can also use the cutting wheel to cut slices out of it.  I admit, I do think they are worth the money. 

I have never done crafts with them, but I do cut and drill copper fairly regularly at work.  Love the dremel, but prefer the cordless models.  One less thing to worry about.  Otherwise I use a DeWalt either 18v or the newer lighter weight brushless 20v one. 

Honestly, I'm sure your drill would work just fine.  Smiley

I'm guessing it's kind of like this demo video, but straight lines rather than patterned in a circle.

I've also seen people work two threads.  A continual running thread the beads are strung upon, and a secondary used to loop up and over to secure the beads down to the material.

Amazing!  I love the hare's face.  It's stunning!

Thanks!  The local bead store owner is in the middle of publishing a book of patterns.  I learned from  her employees.  Smiley. It's more of a technique than pattern, once you get it you can play and do all sorts of cool different stuff too! 

I don't know if I could explain it really well via the internet.  The book will have tons of pictures and what not.

The store is called Pristine's, and as soon as it is ready she will put it on the webpage.

I'm not a gamer, but I LOVE the rabbit!  Wonderful job.  Smiley
His ears are awesome. 

I know rabbits have an evil side.  I'm owned by three now.  Wink

I like the way that turned out!  What kind of stones are they?  I love the long spike beads too, awesome textures involved. I bet she loves it!
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Acrylic Waffle Weave/Thermal fabric. Where is it? on: June 30, 2014 11:10:11 AM
Anyone have an idea of where I can order some acrylic, not cotton, thermal fabric?  Also known as waffle weave of waffle knit?  

I'd really like some in a light aqua.  Smiley
The kind JE Morgan Mills used to produce.  You can see the picture in a link here.

JE Morgan went out some years ago.  I can find some similar fabric and blankets but not the right color.  And the vintage ones are going for nutty prices on eBay.  

Thanks!

Ooo!  I love it!  That is an awesome idea! 

I thought of this thread at Joann's today too.  They have a new tool by the wire section, it smooths jagged wire edges into little domes.  Kind of like a reverse bead reamer.  I'm completely spacing out the name now, but go look for it!  Super cool idea.
