41  thimble necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Krafty_Karasu on: February 22, 2013 05:07:32 PM
when my grandma died back in 1992 (wow.  it'll be 21 years in November), I was given her sewing box because I was showing an interest in sewing and other crafts.  needless to say, I suck at sewing.  lol.  but I still use it to hold my pins, needles, zippers, scissors, etc. for those rare occasions when I do sew.  the box included a LOT of vintage thread on wooden spools and even a thimble.  I had seen a LOT of thimble necklaces online and I was really inspired to make one.  so I found the thimble, drilled a little hole in it, and added some dangles.

I love it!  I used a mix of quartz (both the point and die-shaped beads), pearls, clear seed beads, and silver lined bugle beads to give it a kind of vintage feel.  I love it, I love it, I love it!!!  Grin

I finished an item I just added to the list today!  lol.  I wanted to play with the new tiny rose beads, and the idea hit me, so I added it to the list and put it together!  Grin  here it is:

43  Dia de los Muertos necklace!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: February 21, 2013 01:41:23 AM
I made one last Dia de los Muertos item tonight.  this time, it was a necklace!  it isn't the same skull or rose color as the item it's meant to go with, but I really don't care.  Cheesy  in case you haven't seen the other items, here is the bracelet (the red and turquoise one is mine), and here are the earrings.  now, here's the necklace!

I found the tiny rose beads at Michaels yesterday and I just fell in love with them!  they were 40% off and there were only 2 strands left, so of course I snapped them up!  the bead strands will be 50% off next week, so I'm hoping they get more in so I can buy more!!!  to create the rose crown, I just strung 4 roses, then just kept running my needle through them to create a circle of roses.  then, to keep it stable on a headpin, I stitched a 6 or 8/0 seed bead in the middle.  I just love this necklace!  I hope you do too!  Grin

45  Arizona state quarters made into a necklace! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: February 09, 2013 11:06:52 PM
so my parents went to some place yesterday where they had people selling handmade jewelry and whatnot.  she picked up this necklace that has a pendant made from 2 Arizona state quarters.  that was cool.  what wasn't cool was that it looked like it was strung on a piece of hemp with a crow bead, and that just made it look cheap.  she said I could have the necklace, and I said thank you, but I'll be putting it on a chain.  I'm pretty proud of how this turned out.

sorry about how washed out it looks.  Undecided  but you can see in the heart that it's an Arizona quarter, there's a rising sun and a cactus.  I of course had to make matching earrings.  the turquoise were just some cute little square beads that I got from random people that just happened to be the EXACT same beads.  amazing how that worked out.

with only 12 turquoise necklaces, I don't think I have enough of them.  Cheesy

46  Harry Potter shadowbox in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: February 06, 2013 02:14:21 PM
it's finally done!  I'm pretty proud of this piece since I made the table myself.  Grin


the table was made from 2 wooden tags I just happened to find at Jo-Ann's and 2 strips of wood each for the legs.  I just cut off the odd end of the tag and cut the pieces down for the legs.  then I filled in the space between each piece of wood with wood filler, sanded them down, glued everything together and painted it all.  the one leg is a bit wonky and I don't know why, but I'm still really happy with it.  Smiley  on the table you'll find Polyjuice Potion, Unicorn Horn, Bubotuber Pus, Salamander Blood, a Jobberknoll feather, Salt, Tom Riddle's destroyed diary, Helga Hufflepuff's Cup, and a crystal ball.  on the floor under what is supposed to be Nagini is a flowerpot full of Floo Powder.  Salazar Slytherin's Locket can be found in the middle of the Deathly Hallows symbol with a Snitch hovering above it.  the movie tickets are for Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows Part 2 (I'm guessing not too many theaters actually care what the tickets say as long as it's similar to the movie name.  "Harry Potter and the Deathly Holllows Part 2" and "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Prince of Caspia" really got on my nerves...).

hope you like it!

49  Silent Hill shadowbox in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: January 23, 2013 12:38:46 AM
I was on a roll!  I technically finished this one last night too, but I didn't get around to taking a picture.

so by now, you may or may not know about my Resident Evil shadowbox and my Twilight Shadowbox.  if those weren't enough (which they weren't), I also made a shadowbox based on the latest installment of the Silent Hill movie franchise and the game it's based on [Silent Hill 3]:
  (click the picture to see it bigger/zoom)

I made the cookie tin based on rackycoo's Altered Altoid Tin Tutorial.  is it just me, or is it hard to find the Altoids smalls tins?  I finally found a 3 pack at Wal-Mart (and then singles at Hobby Lobby).  I tried to get it as close to this as I could:

that's an actual picture from Silent Hill 3.  the picture I wanted to use had words on it, so I had to go with a different one.  but I'm still happy with how it turned out.  Smiley

next up...well, you'll see.  Tongue

50  Twilight shadowbox in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: January 21, 2013 10:22:21 PM
it's finally finished.  Grin Grin Grin

after finishing my Resident Evil shadowbox, I was inspired to make more based on movies I've seen and loved in the theater (and which ones I can find my ticket stubs for.  I seem to have misplaced my stub for "The Hunger Games" though.  Sad)  this time I've made a "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" shadowbox.

  (click the picture to see it bigger/zoom)

I do have the apple in there because that's what started it all.  and every time I make something Twilight related, I like to throw an apple in there if I can.  Wink  I even painstakingly made little pictures for Renessme's locket.  if you look closely at Bella and Edward's pictures, you can see that they're rimmed in red.  I wanted to use black ink, but I couldn't find my black ink pad (which I had to move to get to the red one.  how stupid am I?) so I thought the red would be kinda cool.  and I really like it.  the jewelry display was a bit of a letdown since it is more than the depth of the box, but since it's so black in there, it works.  Smiley  the box wasn't in the greatest of shape.  it seemed to have been beat up during manufacturing, so I lined it with black velvet paper to hide dents and scratches on the inside.  measure twice cut once?  yeah right.  I measured like 5 times and still made the paper strips more narrow than they were supposed to be.  Roll Eyes

anyways, I'm pretty happy with it overall.  I do wish the crest had been like a cameo cabochon, but you gotta work with what you have.  or in my case, what you don't have.  Wink
