311  Re: earring addiction swap GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by Krafty_Karasu on: May 07, 2009 11:30:52 AM
well, I received from 2 of my partners, but I'm sad.  Cry


as you can see, the one on the left broke in the mail on its way from little dragonfly.   Cry  I'm pretty sure I can fix it.  it's kinda funny how I made a pair of earrings with coral and received a pair made with coral.  thank you!


and here we have 2 pretty pairs from Kerallyn.  loverly!  thank you!

great job everyone!   Grin

well, I did hear from taloola and she did receive her earrings a few days ago.  she told me her internet is on the fritz, so I'm offering to post the earrings I made for her.



I love the turquoise and red ones the most.  I'm going to have to make myself a pair.  they are genuine turquoise, red coral Swarovski crystals and actual red coral.

313  etched Mother's Day vase! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: May 07, 2009 07:15:09 AM
inspired by Onyxnox's etched unicorn canisters, I decided I wanted to try glass etching.  I have TONS upon TONS of glass vases, candle holders, etc., but I was kinda nervous about doing the etching.  I finally went out and bought the cream and puffy paint (just like Onyx used) and let it sit.  with Mother's Day coming up, I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do.  at first, I thought about doing more jewelry for her.  so, I set out to Wal-Mart to see if I could pick up something a little different to use with what I already had.  I always love going to the aisle where they have vases and the fake flowers to see what glassware they have.  and there it was; a thin purple vase.  she LOVES purple.  I decided this is what I was doing for her.  I decided on the font I wanted and taped the printout to the inside of the vase and traced it with the puffy paint.  I let it dry all night and finished it today.

we'll do this backwards so the correct picture shows first.  Wink  please ignore the date.

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.

315  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

316  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

320  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
