1  Silver Phoenix Protest/Promotion Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by dobiemuse on: July 10, 2010 01:25:02 PM
I recently made this necklace. (I hope this is in the right place, it's not exactly a recon...)

I used microscope slides I cut and then foiled and soldered with lead free solder. This is the front:

The back (which this piece is important to the story):

And this is the full picture of the cover I used so you can see it better:


I did this because I learned that the book companies wanted to change the cover of the book because they didn't think that someone of color on the book cover sold well. The full soapbox post is here: http://melissawatercolor.blogspot.com/2010/07/on-my-soap-box-on-my-wishlist-and.html. I am not asking any compensation for it so I also felt I could give it away on my blog. I thought it was a fun way to protest, promote a good book, and have some fun. Think is works?  Undecided

I love all the bookmarks... and look what I got today!



I love sewn bookmarks! I love the colors and the look of that fabric. I also love the crocheted one. That had to take some time! Thanks so much CraftyDeJa! These are great!

And since she hasn't posted the one's I sent, I hope you don't mind if I just go ahead and do it.



The ribbon one was the main one and the other two are extras. I hope you can see the corner one. It was an origami folded corner bookmark in light pink paper that had "inclusions" of flowers. I shouldn't have photo'd it on white, but oh well... Smiley

YaY! gots some pics of my great package!

Trying on the hat... I so wish I would have gotten video of this. She started flipping the hat so she could grab the pom at the end. It was too funny. She quickly figured out how to get it off... so there went video!


Perfect fit! Guess my other dogs do tend to be on the very large size... Smiley But I think my sheltie looks too cute in this!


"Mom, since the hat wouldn't fit on me, can I haz the scarf?" Me: No way! It's too snuggly! Smiley (It was too hard to take a pic of myself, so I enlisted one of the pups)


Again, enlisting help for pics of my hat. I LOVE this! I really like those long stocking caps so this is PERFECT!


And the rest of my goodies. The string was beautifully wrapped around the package, but my mom was with me when I got it and she couldn't wait for me to find my camera. Yes, I will be fighting her for the bronco stuff. Oh, and thank NH822's son for the cards! Very generous!!


Thanks so much for everything, NH822. I do love it!

My youngest... yes, he's still a pup even if he is the largest...


My littlest, the sheltie. It shows up well even tho she matches it too perfectly... Smiley


The sweetest canister (which will be filled soon at the pups demand) with the cute plaque...


The placemat (I LOVE this and almost cried when I saw it)
