3311  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sterling Silver Whovian Wedding Bracelet (Doctor Who) on: September 01, 2011 08:15:44 AM
This item is a custom order that I've been dying to share, and now that the person has received it, I finally can.  It was for a lovely Etsy artist called knerdyknits, who wanted a classy and subtle Doctor's Companion bracelet for her wedding.  I was truly honored that she asked me to make it for her.  The bride-to-be picked out her favorite charms from my stash, and asked that as much of the bracelet as possible to be sterling silver. 
The bracelet chain, head pins and jump rings are all sterling, and came from Fire Mountain Gems.  The bails are sterling plated and came from a seller on eBay.

The blue and clear beads and hearts are Swarovski crystal, and there are some freshwater round, coin, and potato pearls to match the beading on her gown.


Because every bride deserves presents on her wedding, I also included two pairs of earrings as a surprise for her.   These are Swarovski crystal hearts in sapphire, hanging from some long sleek earring wires I received from april again in one of the rounds of Craftster Bead Soup Swaps.

I love how simple and modern this pair came out.  I have trouble with "simple" because I always just seem to want to add more stuff to my jewelry.

And the other set I made I'm calling my "Blue Box" earrings.  They are Swarovski crystal cubes and rondells on sterling head pins.


Enjoy!

Have acquired most of the supplies for my Large, and I already had all the items for my Small.  Have half of the items for my Medium, but still need to pick up a few more.  I'd like to make that one as close to send outs as possible.  

Have also acquired supplies for a House, a Class, and a Shop extra.  

Can you tell how much I love a good theme?!?!

I finally made a list of all the things I'm thinking of making for the awesome Knickertwist.  It turned out to be a rather long list!  I'm not sure if I'm going to edit down my list or not, but I think I am definitely going to prioritize it to make sure that I complete an item for each category before moving on to extras.  Cheesy

Hello friends. Smiley  Had a super busy day yesterday full of 5 hours of faculty meetings, painting my office, buying my husband a new wardrobe, and meeting new students from around the globe.  Today I did a ton of errands in the morning and then collapsed to watch Doctor Who with an old friend.  Now I'm all kinds of zonked. 

To those of you who sent me PMs, I'll be sure to take care of them first thing in the morning!

Super excited about the second half season premier today!  Anyone else planning an all day marathon with BBC America?

Yep, it was freezer paper stenciling.  I highly recommend it!

Organizer Note: This note is aimed mainly at people who are thinking of signing up, but goes for everyone....

After receiving many questionnaires with the same issue, I have to make a reminder.  This swap is "Plastic/Acrylic-Free", and "Nearly Seedless".  This is not because I personally hate these beads, or because I want to exclude people.  This is because out of the 10 people currently in the swap, nearly everyone has offered them to "give", but only two people have been willing to receive them.   Sad

When asked in the signup thread if they could be listed as options, "in case people were interested", I decided to give it the OK.  Since then I have had to send back several "Do you promise me?" PMs, making sure that even though these items were listed in the questionnaires, that people signing up would still be WILLING AND ABLE to send 1 cup of beads to their partners without including seeds/plastic. 

If you are contemplating this swap, please remember, THIS IS NOT A WAY TO DUMP UNWANTED CHEAP BEADS.  This is a supply swap.  If you hope to receive nice things, you MUST be willing to give nice things.  Call it the doing the right thing, call it the Golden Rule, call it Karma.  However you choose to see it, make sure you can abide by this guideline before deciding to sign up.

-Jennie
