51  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my birthday necklace on: February 22, 2011 09:19:57 PM
I was looking around on Etsy (I'm so addicted to that place) and now I'm going to get into metal stamping.  right now I only have a steel hole punch, but that's ok.  I already made something.  Grin


I call it my birthday necklace because it's a penny from 1982 and the Swarovski crystal is aquamarine (for March).  Grin

simple, but I wanted to show it off.





*disclaimer: this is NOT illegal.  just so everyone knows this.
52  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / fairy wing pendants!! on: October 31, 2010 01:04:48 PM
I am totally addicted to making these (thanks a lot atlascoughedRoll Eyes  Wink.

she had made a pair of fairy wings for the Multi-Themed Steampunk Swap we were in together a few months ago.  her pair can be found here (you'll have to scroll down a little to see them).  she got the idea from a book I already had on my wishlist called Enchanted Adornments: Creating Mixed-Media Jewelry with Metal, Clay, Wire, Resin & More.  the instructions called for resin, but she used Glossy Accents (or Crackle Effects.  I used GA).  so, I had to make a pair for my partner in the Legend swap and a few more for myself.  Grin


it's hard to see, but I put glitter in this pair.

then I got a little crazy and used leopard and zepra print tissue paper too.

the zebra one has flatback rhinestones in it to give it some sparkle, while the rest have glitter.  I put a second coat over the ones that have glitter to seal it in there, or a lot of it would have fallen off.  I also thought it would be neat to make a pendant from some of the "pirate" items I had bought to make pirate jewelry a while ago.

her instructions on how to make them can be found here.

hope you like them!
53  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Morrissey painting turned cross stitch picture on: August 03, 2010 11:06:53 AM
I made this for the FOC swap, and I just had to show it off.  not sure what happened to my partner, but I know it's been delivered, so I'm going to post it now.

this was the original picture on her wist:


block by block, I turned it into a cross stitch pattern using only MS paint.  it ended up turning into this:


I worked on it nearly everyday for hours on end over the course of 2 weeks.

whatcha think?

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

Swap Details
The idea is to make one tiny craft item with a video game theme.  This is not limited to just console games (PlayStation 2, Xbox, NES, etc.).  If you're more of a PC gamer, join us!  There are plenty of great PC games out there just begging to be crafted.  Your one item should be physically small and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)

    * You will receive only one partner. 
    * You may only send that partner ONE tiny video game craft - "extras" are allowed as long as both you and your partner agree to them, but they MUST be posted in the personal/private swap gallery, not here.
    * All items must be 4"x4" or smaller.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings/pendant is tiny.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask your organizer!

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).

If you want to participate, here is the information to send to the organizer: (Remember to send your info to your organizer via Private Message (PM) and not to reply with it here)

    * RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive.  Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)  Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
    * FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not)  *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*  NOTE: Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.

57  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Twilight themed beaded pincushion on: April 30, 2010 11:15:02 AM
yet another Twilight swap item I made for BunnyTuTu.  Grin


it's a pincushion made from a Sobe Life Water bottle cap covered in tiny seed beads.

I found this tutorial quite a while ago, and when I started the One Tiny Twilight Thing swap, I knew I wanted to make a pincushion for my partner.  but the idea to use this particular pattern came at the last second (as I had forgotten about it).  I just made sure to tweak the pattern so that it was more Twilighty. 
58  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Breaking Dawn needle book book on: April 30, 2010 10:33:18 AM
yup.  I've done it again.  Grin  I really don't get tired of making these.  unfortunately I can't make any more in black for a while as I can no longer get black felt BY ITSELF at Wal-Mart (their felt now comes in packages of multiple colors and I have no use for beige, brown and tan felt.  especially when you only get one of each color.  what a waste).

anyways, I made this book for the One Tiny Twilight Thing swap which my partner BunnyTuTu has received, so I thought I'd show it off.

59  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince needle book book on: April 07, 2010 04:25:37 PM
yes, for the third time, "book" is in the title twice because for the third time, I've made a book-like needle book.  Grin

this one was for the OTHPT (One Tiny Harry Potter Thing) swap.  my partner's favorite book is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, so I knew I had to recreate the cover into a cross stitch pattern.  I made it up from a Dumbledore sprite and a Harry Potter sprite that korinchan made.  then I found a sprite of a chalice and turned it into the basin that the locket was in.  lastly, I found a background that was similar to the book cover.  and here you have it:

cover:


spine:


even though I nearly make my fingers bleed while making these, I'm totally addicted!  Grin
