Heres a whole lot more that I made today,
I'm really having fun with this!

Little Mermaid:

I found these really cute fish charms on an old necklace, which I think added a really nice touch.


This one I think I am going to give my sister for her birthday. Used silver, red and black beads.
Also found a little charm type thing that reminded me of the tail.

Boy and Girl:

Mum was admiring this, so I just had to give it to her. Orange and brown square beads that remind me of childrens building blocks. The colours are alot closer to those in the image, the photograph just didn't show it. On the back it has a love heart shaped charm that says 'best friend'

Rocky Horror Picture Show:

My personal favourite, the gorgeous Dr Frank. I watched the movie while making this. Used peral beads to match his necklace, and hexagonal black ones to give the image of fishnets. Also used red beads to match the lips. And a small star charm as a finishing touch.

After reading ihateranch's awesome tutorial here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=226655.0 I was inspired to have a go making my very own necklace similar.
Here's a photo!

It's nothing spectacular or anything, but I'm pretty happy with it.
After getting the image on the clay and stuff I spent probably about two hours sorting out beads, cutting and bending wire and chain etc. until I figured out this design I am happy with.
I think I will file/sand the edges of the clay 'cause it's a bit rough and I think it will make the whole thing look a lot better.
I have decided to use the same method to make my sister a birthday present and my friend a goodbye present and will be shopping up next week for cool beads and interesting things to attach to them!

Would love any comments feedback or suggestions!
Thanks for looking.

So, I made these rather groovy (if I may say so..!) bottlecap thingys. They are thingys 'cause they don't have anything on the back.
Anyway, there is a really nice videoshop here called Alice in Videoland, they have really cool brochures! I grabbed one a while ago, planning on using it for crafts, finally got around to it, and I made these!!

They are perfect, but I really like them, and if YOU like them too, go to my blog (link in signature) for your chance to win four of them!

Found this photo of my sister in a magazine from when we dressed up for a zombie movie, and decided to make her a brooch out of the picture! Isn't she HOT? Hah.

And finally, here is a heart and a brain I made, using the same mold as I did with the sister zombie! I really really love these, any suggestions as to what I should do with them?

Sorry all the pictures are links! I havn't posted enough to be able to post pictures. =(
Thanks for looking! Comments, feedback and critque always welcome!
