1  Autumn Blossom Pin in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MelodyRose on: August 19, 2010 08:23:17 PM
I made this pin entirely out of re-purposed materials--a polyester scarf and a felted wool sweater.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  It's a tad more hippy-chic than I usually go for, but I think the uniqueness of it is good.  I'm hoping it'll work in it's favor, anyway Grin

Thanks for looking!

2  Satin & Peacock Feather Cuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MelodyRose on: August 15, 2010 07:11:33 PM
My parents have peacocks and my mom gives me their feathers.  I have had a hard time using them because I usually think they're kind of tacky, but I love how this turned out!  Just thought I'd share.  More pics and info on my blog at http://aquietlittlelife.blogspot.com/2010/08/etsy-shop-update-satin-rosette-peacock.html

Thanks for looking!

3  Beaded Satin Cuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MelodyRose on: August 06, 2010 12:13:49 PM
I'm not terribly "trendy", but I am terribly pregnant and I have a trendy shirt that flatters my figure that I like to wear.  However, the planet that is my belly was really too much of a focal point (it's a black shirt, no print, nothing to draw the eye except for my globe) so I needed something with some flair to wear with it.  I like cuffs, but haven't found any that go with the rest of my clothing, but I knew exactly what kind of accessory I wanted to wear with this particular shirt.  And it looks great with it!!  I can't believe it turned out exactly how I wanted it to!  It took a long time to make--like, 8 hrs, as I did the entire thing by hand--but it was worth it.  I love it!  To make it a little bit funky, I used some weird things for the middle part, along with beads and buttons and snaps and pieces off of broken jewelry.  There's actually a tiny nut there somewhere.   Grin 

Whaddya think?  I don't bead anything else, but I have been asked to make more of these, so any feedback to make them better is great!
