91  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / gemstones and other decorations with polyclay on: February 02, 2009 11:25:55 AM
so I was wondering...

my first polyclay project included the use of gemstones.  the instructions I was using said to place the gemstones in the clay, then bake.  I don't see this being a problem.  but here's where my question comes in...why do other projects using (for example) chatons tell you to press them into the clay, then pop them out before baking.  could something happen to the crystal?  or would it be safe?
92  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Twilight inspired stuff *image hefty* updated on: January 18, 2009 08:36:07 AM
finally here it all is.  the pictures aren't the greatest, but I just can't help moving when I take pictures.   Undecided

first we have an E for Edward necklace and earring set.  the tiny seed beads on the jumprings are topaz and black for the colors of his eyes (they were a serious pain to use).


then we have my stretchy Edward Cullen bracelet.  nothing fancy, just his name and beads in the color of his hungry eyes.


next, tear drop-shaped crystals in the colors of Edwards eyes.  my first necklace using a toggle clasp as the focal point.  I'd been wanting to use those locks and keys.


another necklace of Edward's eye colors.  all of the other necklaces use Swarovski crystals.  this one uses Czech glass beads with Swarovski as the earrings.


I had made a topic just for the next item, but I'm throwing it in here too.
a Twilight inspired bookmark


then a New Moon inspired bookmark.  it's not really pink, it's a reflection off my blinds.


Eclipse bookmark


Breaking Dawn bookmark.  yes, that's even a tiny pink bow on the key.


if vampires could cry (like they do in Kindred: The Embraced), then I think they'd cry tears of blood.  modeled after the Phoenix Tears necklace I made for a Harry Potter swap, here's Vampire's Tears


and last we have Blood Drops


hope you like.   Smiley
93  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Twilight inspired bookmark on: January 08, 2009 11:20:21 PM
I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of this!!!

I just got Twilight for Christmas (and am going through withdrawals because I'm done with it and can't find any of the others.  stupid Christmas craze...) and while picking through my beads looking to see what I had for no reason in particular, I found the seed bead (it really is a seed drilled through to make a bead) and some of the other random red beads (that pink looking one really is red) and it dawned on me.  I have seen others use keys in their Twilight pieces and I remembered that I had some key charms.  I threw it all together (in a jumbled mess that left me wanting to change it) and this is what I came up with!  I absolutely LOVE this bookmark!

the only white thing I had laying around was a 9 1/2" x 6" notebook.  I couldn't exactly take a picture of this thing against my red walls or my red carpet.  Tongue



it's a little less than 5" tall.  notice the tiny "blood drop" on the end of the key.  I love that the most.   Grin
94  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Gryffindor/Phoenix picture frame on: December 08, 2008 09:08:05 PM
so this is the final product.  I made the phoenix from polyclay and posted it here in the correct topic since the phoenix was finished and made from clay.  since the finished piece is something you'd use to decorate a room, it's here.   Smiley



so, what do you think?
95  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / HP swap item - polyclay phoenix *updated!* on: December 02, 2008 12:04:20 AM
my partner received her package, so I can now show off this item.   Grin

this is my first real attempt at working with polyclay...whether you want to believe it or not after looking at this.

my Harry Potter swap partner likes phoenixes, and it just so happens that I had found this really pretty project in one of my jewelry making magazines.  it's called "Two Turtle Doves" by polyclay artist Christi Friesen (http://www.cforiginals.net/)


I thought this would make a great opportunity to make a phoenix for my partner.  so...I did.


this is pre-varnish, so it's not as bright of a red in this pic as it is in real life (and the top of the wing doesn't look so weird).  plus, it's kinda hard to see the sparkles.  I used cherry red and red effects Fimo.  this thing measures about 6"x3".

tell me what you think   Smiley

now you can see the finished product here!
96  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my version of the tree of life on: October 24, 2008 04:33:17 PM
inspired by phoenixfiredesigns http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271497.msg3065404#msg3065404 (her's was the first tree of life I'd seen), I wanted to make my own.

97  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Halloween decorated wooden spoon on: October 24, 2008 04:27:25 PM
another project inspired by a craftster member.  ;p

inspired by Knickertwist's spoons (sorry.  for some reason I can't copy and paste), I decided to make my own.  mine's not as fancy, but I still like it for my first attempt.   Smiley
98  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Kingdom Hearts and Harry Potter on: October 24, 2008 03:57:09 PM
I guess this is where they would go since I took plain black hoodies and turned them into something really nifty.  oh man...I just said nifty...  *face palm*

I don't have a dress maker's dummy or anyone to model it for (so they can take my picture), so a chair will have to do.

anyways, the first one is an Organization XIII hoodie inspired by this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=183647.0

I'm still thinking about putting the Nobodies symbol on it.

the second was inspired by that post as well, since I'm too afraid to try and make a robe.  so I turned a hoodie into something similar to a Harry Potter school robe.

the hood is even lined in red (kinda hard to see).  it's a little off center, but you can't really tell.

so how do you like?
99  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Any Gryffindor would be proud to wear this... on: August 04, 2008 02:36:59 PM
or Slytherin, or Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw...it all just depends on the color and the symbol.    Tongue



I plan on going all out when I go to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.  so, I've decided to make some stuff.  this is one item of 2 that I have ready for the big day.   Grin
100  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / beaded ornaments, candle holders, and vases on: July 25, 2008 06:00:43 PM
I started off beading miniature glass ornaments.  I still make them, but I've moved on to slightly bigger things.




this one was made for an ornament swap I took part in.  we were given a list of another person's favorites and were told to incorporate as many as we wanted into an ornament.  my partner's favorite colors were hot pink, aqua, and lime green; one of her favorite movies was "Singin' in the Rain" (hence the tiny aqua colored drops); she loved collecting foreign coins (notice the little replica Chinese coin on the bottom) and I formed the silver wire hanger and loop myself.





I made this for my mom's birthday last year.  her birthstone is topaz, so of course I put topaz Swarovski crystals on this.  it REALLY sparkles when you put a tea light candle in it.  I'm so proud of the clarity of this picture too. Tongue


I have a few other vases beaded up, I just don't have pictures yet.
