281  Re: earring addiction swap GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by Krafty_Karasu on: May 04, 2009 12:12:05 PM
I can't take it anymore!  I must share at least Kerallyn's!  she did receive them, so I'm not spoiling the surprise.  Grin

the first pair pretty much came right from her wists (though they have black diamond studs, mine are just clear).  the second pair were created from the info I took off her profile.
stardust earrings

282  Zipper chokers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: April 27, 2009 10:51:37 AM
I was inspired by diy-me-amy's zipper choker.  I had purchased these 2 zippers wanting to put them in some cute bag or something, but when it turned out that the zipper foot that supposedly fits my sewing machine would have been lying ON TOP of the zipper rather than run along side it, I returned the foot, but kept the zippers.  not knowing what to do with them, they just sat on a shelf.  then I found amy's idea.

the first one is supposed to have a key hanging from it, but it turned to the side.  Tongue  I decided I wanted to make zipper pulls for them to give them a little sparkle.  she used one long zipper for her choker, but mine were shorter so I needed to come up with a way to make them longer.  ribbon ends rule!

so there they are.   Grin

283  cherry blossom jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: April 23, 2009 03:54:26 PM
I guess jewelry with cherry blossoms will have to do until my tree blooms.

just a simple pendant on black cord.

I made 2 pairs of earrings thinking that one matched each necklace, then I realized they both matched this one.  oh well.  as soon as I saw the shell with cherry blossoms on it, the pink flower, and the tiny pink drop flowers, this necklace came to mind.  I love it.   Grin

what do you think?

YAY!!!  I got another card today!  (should have been 2 this week.  stupid mailman coming AFTER I left the house.)

so this one is from seamlessgem and I love it!  it's amazing!

just my partners are putting me to shame (not to mention everyone else)!  now I'm extra, EXTRA nervous about mine!

and sorry it's a bit blurry, but this was the best I could get.  I don't know why.   Undecided

287  Twilight inspired Edward's eyes cuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: April 03, 2009 12:19:19 PM
ok.  I'm keeping beading sessions small until my shoulder is completely healed.  I hurt.   Sad

but on the bright side, doing a biggish beading session today resulted in this:

I tried like crazy to glue the cabochon to the cuff, but each time it peeled right off.  I used fabric cement, regular hypo cement, and I even tried gorilla glue.  nothing held.  I FINALLY got the bright idea to just trace around the cab then embroider with beads.  it fits in there nice and snug and the beaded bezel will keep it in there.  the bottom stitched line is a little crooked, but that's what you get for trying to sew lamb skin.  it's so soft and stretchy...and a royal pain.  I imagine that spandex is worse, but this was bad enough.

and to make up this cuff, I used black lamb skin leather for the cuff itself, a...I forget the size onyx cabochon, and topaz 11/0 Delicas.  I'm pretty happy with it.   Smiley

what do you think?

289  Necklace fit for Vampire royalty in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: March 12, 2009 06:55:54 PM
or at least I'd like to think so.  I had ordered the red drops with 3 loops on a whim, thinking I could come up with something to do with them.  so I sat down today at my little table with my millions (maybe billions) of beads, and finally came up with this.  I love this necklace so much.  it's not just because it does remind me of maybe something Lillie from Kindred: The Embraced would wear, but because it's sparkly and red.  2 of my favorite things.   Grin

I made the picture much bigger than just the necklace because I also wanted to show off that I FINALLY bought a display, so my pictures will look a little more professional from now on.   Wink

OMG I MUST HAVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kratos is my absolute favorite Sony character and I was psyched to see them give him a cute makeover in Little Big Planet.  I even had a friend of mine make me a keychain with SB Kratos to put my work keys on (I work at GameStop so it was a must have).  it was even because of the original game that I wound up with a Greek key tattoo.   Grin

I love this so much!


oh, and for reference:
