1  Barbie Jewellery in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by burntspaghetti on: July 22, 2011 02:46:59 AM
I'm in the process of packing up my house because we're moving. We found a little bit of our Barbie collection that was left over so I went through it to find anything I could use for jewellery or other crafts. So far, this is the jewellery I've made with it.

This was from a ball jointed gymnast Barbie which was already missing its other arm. I detached this one wire wrapped it and added a red Czech glass teardrop.


This is a steak from a Barbie barbecue set which I think came with the camper van we bought.


These are some shoes I found, which I made pierced and threaded head pins through. The beads are vintage moonglow lucite.

2  Rings and earrings - image heavy in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by burntspaghetti on: February 10, 2011 03:17:55 AM
Part two of my jewellery post - I'm splitting this due to the large amount of pictures.

Rings


I really like these resin cake cabochons. They're both sitting on vintage buttons and attached to the ring bases.

These have a few different gemstones, including jade, jasper and quartz.

Earrings

I got a whole bag of these super cute lampwork beads but they were the only ones that were a pair so I automatically thought of making earrings with them. I might make some similar necklaces with the rest.

I'm so in love with vintage plastic flower/leaf/feather beads.


These have more of the vintage flower beads, and some have glass beads at their ends.

I bought these beads without a particular purpose in mind (I do this far too often), but decided to make them a bit like my other flower hoops. They all have tiny black glass beads at their centres.

3  Bracelets and necklaces - image heavy in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by burntspaghetti on: February 10, 2011 03:09:13 AM
I've got a heap of stuff to post, so I thought I'd split it up. These are the bracelets and necklaces.
Bracelets

I've had this pendant sitting around for about a year and finally decided to make something with it. This is what I ended up with. I wanted to do something other than a necklace, given that it would be pretty obvious.

All of these flower stacks are topped with 6mm czech glass beads. I wanted to be consistent.

I really like this colour combination. I did get very close to running out of yellow plastic beads to use, though.

Another favourite colour combination.

Necklaces


I love making these. I've just got to go through my collection to find more filigree first.

4  Kinda kitschy and vintage-y (very image heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by burntspaghetti on: March 21, 2010 07:16:06 AM
Yet again I have a bunch of stuff I haven't posted in a while.
Resin Pendants




The first of my resin jewellery I've found good enough so far. These puffy stickers are great.

Bangles



All of the stamps on the first are floral and are quite lovely.

Necklaces


Earrings







Everything here uses at least one vintage component. I'm using the heck out of these vintage flower beads lately.

Rings





These cluster rings have been pretty popular so far.

Bracelets





I'd been planning these flower bracelets nigh on forever, but only got onto it recently.

5  Charms, plastic flowers and more! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by burntspaghetti on: February 13, 2010 12:53:31 AM
Another long post. I really need to post more often. I've used a lot of thumbnails, so make sure you click on the small images  Smiley

Rings
I got the idea to make these cluster rings and ended up making a bunch. I love them.


Charm Bracelets



Bangles
This is my first time using memory wire. It's mostly Czech glass, but there are some glass chips and I think some vintage beads too.


More of my Japanese washi paper bangles. I really like these big wide bangles I've recently found.


Brooch
I love my vintage flower beads.


Earrings
These two pairs are post (stud) earrings. The second pair is made from buttons. I have another larger one like them that I want to try and use in a button ring someday.


I love gold finish Czech glass beads. Must be why I have so much of it.

6  Kitschy/whimsical jewellery (tons of pictures!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by burntspaghetti on: January 07, 2010 10:42:18 PM
Hi all! I haven't posted any new stuff for quite a while, so this is a long post. I've divided it into different kinds of jewellery to make it a little less messy.

Brooches





All of these are made from vintage plastic flower beads, which I've layered and glued together. The last one is my favourite, but I'm also really fond of the bright colours in the second one.

Bangles/Bracelets



The white one is new for me because before this I'd only over made thematic charm bracelets, not ones based on colour.

Rings (except there's just the one)

I keep using this colour combination. I even have a very similar ring with the same colours, only in different positions.

Earrings




The first ones are my favourite (and took the longest to make, too), but I'm also very fond of the lions too. I bought a lot of charms and got a pair of them and knew they had to be earrings.

Necklaces





I honestly don't know which one I like the best here. The coral beads in the first are so incredibly pretty in person. The fourth is made with beads my best friends bought me for my birthday last year, including some lovely Czech glass.

Well, that's it. I really shouldn't leave so much time between posts again.

7  Experimenting with new styles/techniques in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by burntspaghetti on: November 12, 2009 11:40:22 PM
Hi all. Lately I've been trying out new styles and techniques to make my jewellery.

First, some paper covered wood bangles. All but the last are covered with pretty patterned washi paper.

I thought I'd try something in a new colour pallete, which is why I chose this cream and autumn toned bangle.


I love this one because of the colours and it features a continuous mountain scene.


I like the large amount of gold tones and the flowers in this one.


This one is covered in vintage sheet music labeled 'Sicilian Dance'.

I've also been making a lot of new earrings.

These are made with stacked small plastic flower beads. The first pair also has glass beads at the centers of some. I love the glass beads used in the first, and the vibrancy of the second pair.


This pair is really simple, but I loved these painted Japanese beads and wanted to show them off.


I got these vintage plastic oval pieces free with some supplies and had no idea what to do with them. I then decided to pair them with these small plastic flower beads.


These aquamarine beads came with the above plastic ovals. I made the wire teardrops myself and strung on rose quartz chips.

These two necklaces are the first I've made with beads as the main material.

This one is made of mint toned glass beads and a silver connector piece. These are the first beads I bought at a newly discovered bead shop near home.


This necklace was created after I fell in love with the cinnabar bead. I decided to use these faceted glass beads in some of the other tones cinnabar beads come in which I think compliments it well.

Any comments are welcome!

8  Experimenting with new techniques in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by burntspaghetti on: October 25, 2009 04:38:15 AM





I found the blank wood bangles for sale for the first time (as far as I know, anyway) at my local craft store so I bought a bunch to decorate. Both are decoupaged with Japanese washi paper. The first is a continuous image, whereas I randomly placed my paper strips on the second for a more kaleidoscopic feel.



I spent ages making the chains for this necklace. I've used tarnish resistant wire and Czech glass beads in opaque black and slightly transparent ruby red. The cabochon is wrapped with a square filigree piece.


This is a tiny little wire and pearl birds nest, which I've fixed to a brooch/tie pin finding. I've also got another two I haven't photographed yet in different coloured pearls.

9  (Mostly) floral themed necklaces in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by burntspaghetti on: September 07, 2009 06:55:21 AM
I thought I'd post my newest necklaces here. They're mostly floral in theme, except for one.


This has a black plastic rose charm as its focus, and oval shaped faux cinnabar beads.


This one is made up of heaps of red charms, including a lantern, guitar and telephone; and red beads.


Made from a silver toned filigree piece, which I attached a peachy cab to. It has speckled lucite beads which I looked forever for. You can't tell, but it's asymmetrical and can be worn with the filigree piece on either the left or right by flipping it over.


This has a black bow charm I got in a bulk charm lot from ebay. The crystal heart is my first complicated wire wrap, and it took me approximately 10 attempts to get it right.


A simple necklace with a vintage plastic cab and beads. I really like the navy blue colour.

I'm planning on photographing these again in better light when I get a chance. I shot these at in my dad's back yard in late afternoon, which explains the shadows.

10  Heaps of bamboo tile pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by burntspaghetti on: September 03, 2009 10:53:17 PM
I only just recently found the bamboo tile place mats I've been looking for in a two dollar shop at my local shopping centre. I was really excited and thought they were perfect to use with the Japanese origami paper I'd recently bought.






The paper is glued and glazed with glossy Mod Podge. I then used silver wire to create the loops. I took these (plus more I couldn't fit in the photos) to a craft market last weekend and I sold quite a lot.
My next plan is to raid my local op shop for children's picture books and comic books to use the rest of my tiles.

What do you guys think?
