21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / wildlife silhouette pendants on: August 14, 2012 07:39:57 PM
I made some wildlife silhouette pendants the other day.  They are my favorite things I have etched since I moved to Michigan.  A nice deep smooth etch.  I think it was because the weather was so hot. I am going to try a hot water bath for my etchant solution now that it has cooled off a bit.

22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / puffin necklaces on: August 10, 2012 08:16:39 AM
I spent quite a bit of time watching the puffin cam this year

Which is probably why I made so many puffin necklaces.




23  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Copper Tesla gun pendant on: July 12, 2012 06:06:36 PM
I hardly ever remember to post things I make for Swaps in the main communities but  I am trying to do better.

Here is a etched copper Tesla I made for  the Warehouse 13 round 2 swap.

24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Necklace center pieces on: July 01, 2012 07:22:02 PM
I realized last night that I have not posted any of the metalwork I have made since January 2010.  So here is some stuff from the winter of 2010.

Here are some earrings


These are necklace center pieces a lady contracted me to make for her.  They were not all successes but they are good examples of the technique.

26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Copper Feather Plaque on: May 08, 2012 07:17:43 PM

27  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 74 ENTRIES / Rock and Wire photo stand: with tutorial on: May 01, 2012 08:19:28 PM
Rock and Wire photo stand: with tutorial


Supplies
Fabric wrapped floral wire
Some kind of tube: I used a marker
Scissors:  to cut printed photo
Photo of obliging husband
Rock
Obligatory cat: does nothing to help


Time needed
If you make your own rocks:  between 1 billion and 60 million years depending on what you make
If you use premade rocks:  about 5 minutes including printing out a picture

Step One: take one end of precut floral wire and coil it around a pen until you make a spiral ( three or four times). The spiral will hold the picture so coil it tight.



Step Two:  Tie the non-spiral end to the rock


Step Three: Orient rock and wire until spiral end it up and slip picture into the spiral as per the photo below


These are great if you cant hang pictures on the wall.

29  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Snowy Owl pillowcases on: December 09, 2011 11:54:17 AM
It is an irruption for snowy owls this year; a favorite biological phenomenon in the Bakeneko household. When winter food supplies are low these arctic birds travel south in search of food and show up in unexpected places like Hawaii. To commemorate it I made Mr. Bakeneko Snowy Owl pillowcases.











Read more about irruptions and snowy owls here (http://ebird.org/content/ebird/news/got-snowies and http://www.dailypress.net/page/content.detail/id/533649/More-Snowy-Owls-in-U-P-.html?nav=5003)

Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones pot holders.









These are for a friend of mine birthday.   I had a hard time pulling this off. I tried appliqu and acrylic paint with textile medium which failed.  Sharpie. Sharpie with a freeze paper stencil.
