1  Fabric Flower statment necklace. + tutorial in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by blue eyed pinup on: August 25, 2009 12:43:25 PM
Hi All -

I made these necklaces for a recent trip, because I knew it was going to be hot out and i didnt want something heavy around my neck but still wanted something cute. 

Im not sure that they are quite esty ready yet, specially because its almost fall so I thought Id share them with all of you and get your opinions. 

This is how i put it all together in case you wanna give it a go!

cut two 14" pieces of Ribbon and stitched them together in the center to form a point (this helps it to lay flat along your collar bone)

Cut 3 different sizes of Circles. 5 circles for each flower.  I used a water bottle lid for the smallest one, and pill bottle lid for the middle size and a water glass for the large size. 

I pinched and bunched the circles in the center and then stitched them to the ribbon.  Then i stitched a pearl/smokey quartz in the center for a little sparkle.

2  Catalog Sun Burst in CHALLENGE 39 ENTRIES by blue eyed pinup on: June 01, 2009 08:56:05 PM
Ive always wanted an antique sunburst mirror. The only ones i've come across that were of decent quality were well over $500.
So when this challenge came up I decided to make one.  So with a Jcrew catalog and wood base and mirror I finally have one for cheep.

I had enough magazine dowels left over that I made a smaller version too, I was thinking about leaving it unpainted but the colors
of the left over dowels weren't as fun.  So i think it might end up bronze or maybe a hot pink.
