11  Re: Fall Nerd Battles --Sept. 3, 2013 thru November 30, 2013-- Join Anytime! in Craftalongs by Krafty_Karasu on: October 27, 2013 04:53:21 PM
I can finally post my first project!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Battle/Challenge: October - Let's Celebrate
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: End of the Trail necklace
Project Page Link: End of the Trail necklace
Brief Description: I chose to submit this under the Let's Celebrate challenge because as I found out, the fourth Friday of every September is Native American Day.  I've grown even more in love with their culture ever since I moved to Arizona (even though I hate it here).  one of my favorite pieces of art is the sculpture "End of the Trail" by James Earle Fraser.  I was so excited when I found this pendant and I just HAD to make a special necklace for it.  I used faceted silver beads and two [pricey] Sleeping Beauty turquoise beads to hang the pendant from.  if you would like to know more about "End of the Trail", click this link (or click the link in the main project post listed above).

13  Starburst(?) necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: October 27, 2013 02:25:42 AM
I don't know what else to call it, so I'm going with a starburst.  Grin

I found a beautiful version of this necklace in a Fire Mountain Gems and Beads catalog and I knew I had to make my own version.  the original had a very southwest name...but I don't know it and the website doesn't say it.  Undecided  oh well.  you can see the original one here.

14  Lego Lightsaber jewelry set in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: October 27, 2013 02:19:02 AM
I had originally made this for the Summer Nerd Games battle royale: Star Wars vs. Star Trek.  I am no Trekkie, but I'm also not much of a Star Wars person either, but I'll take SW over ST any day.  Tongue

Lego lightsabers as a necklace and earrings.  Grin

15  End of the Trail necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: October 27, 2013 02:12:49 AM
so there's this sculpture I absolutely love called "End of the Trail".  I thought I had seen this little pewter figure glued to a glass marble once when I was in this neat store in Sedona.  well, we went back to Sedona on Saturday to get some rocks and so I could find that figure.  I couldn't find it, so I just looked around the store at other things, thinking that maybe I might find something else with the sculpture on it.  I found the jewelry rack, and when I came to the very last side, there it was; a sterling silver "End of the Trail" pendant.  so I got it.  it was just a pendant, so I needed a matching chain (which of course they didn't have.  great idea, right?  "hey!  let's sell these pendants but nothing to put them on!").  there's a tiny, tiny bead store on the way out of Sedona, so we stopped there so I could look for a chain.  I ended up getting the silver beads and the Sleeping Beauty turquoise beads to make this necklace.  I wish SB turquoise wasn't so expensive.  I would have got these pretty little ones I found so I could have more for other projects.  oh well.

I love it!  oh, and here's a link to a picture of the actual sculpture and its history.

so here they are:

this set is a present for my cousin's little girl.  I didn't mark it as such before because I forgot that gifts were eligible for the challenge.  Roll Eyes

17  Beaded Steer Skull in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: October 20, 2013 02:17:42 AM
if you were ever curious as to why I'm looking for ceramic steer skulls, you're about to get your answer.

I make beaded masks to go over them.  I've posted others in the past, but they were a bit smaller than this.  also, I received this skull from fellow Craftsterer, mieljolie.  I don't think she's online anymore though.  Sad  but thanks to her trade, I was [eventually] able to make another one of these masks.  Grin  oh!  and I only broke one bead!  Cheesy

18  Batman cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: October 20, 2013 02:05:54 AM
I had started working on this back in June or July (I forget which) for the Summer Nerd games battle royale: Marvel vs. DC.  I obviously chose DC.  this was done on 28 count because I didn't want it to turn into a poster.  if I had done it on 14 count, it would have been more than 20 inches wide.  and because each stitch was so tiny, I was unable to finish in time to enter the challenge.  but I finished it around the very end of September.  and here it is:

my fingers were killing me by the time I was done.  and I even drew blood a few times when I'd stab my finger with the needle.

20  Hunger Games necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: October 20, 2013 01:57:40 AM
I like to wear jewelry inspired by the movie I'm going to watch (but usually only if it's something like Twilight or The Hunger Games).  I bought a pair of mackingjay earrings, but I couldn't find an AFFORDABLE necklace, so I wanted to make one.  and I did.  Grin

I put a little black acrylic paint in the "12" to make it stand out more.  I love this more than most of the handmade THG necklaces I've seen.
