1  Classy Buckeye Necklace! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by beckyheartscrafting on: August 26, 2010 11:28:45 AM
So I'm an Ohio State alumni (Go Bucks! Grin) and we're pretty much all die-hard fans.  We wear buckeye necklaces (made out of real buckeyes, ribbon, pony beads, etc.) to show our pride.  I wanted a "classy" buckeye necklace that I could wear when I wanted to dress up more than a football jersey. Cheesy

I made some polymer buckeye beads and got to work on my necklace!  I'm going back to Columbus over Labor Day weekend and I can't wait to wear it!! Grin

This is my first necklace with beading like this; I've made one other necklace where I basically attached a big charm to some chain, and added some chain decoration.  Now I'm going to be addicted to another craft... Wink

Here's a detail shot of the beads:



The full necklace:

And if you're interested in some more beading detail:



If you've never seen one, this is a "real" buckeye necklace (which I made freshman year of college Cheesy):



Thanks for looking!  Let me know if you have any comments/criticism, since this is a fairly new hobby for me!

2  New to Louisville--Any craft circles out there? Willing to organize one! in Kentucky by beckyheartscrafting on: August 23, 2010 01:12:01 PM
I just moved to Louisville this summer (my boyfriend's been here a year) and we're moving into the Highlands in a couple weeks--super pumped!  I'll be making my rounds in the Bardstown Rd shops soon (and the pubs, as we'll live right amongst the Irish stretch Grin)

Anyone have craft night at art shops or coffee houses in the Highlands area?  Downtown?  Frankfort Ave?  I'd love to meet some cool people!  I'm 23 and I love all types of crafts (seriously, it's a problem) and I also love all types of people!

I'm willing to organize a craft circle in the Highlands if there is interest in participating! Find a place... pick a day... plop down and craft Wink

Let's get a Louisville board with some chatter, y'all!

3  Tiny Dangly Squid (inspired by applesweet!)... my first post! (7 pics) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by beckyheartscrafting on: November 28, 2009 03:14:30 PM
I made a Dangly Squid!  This is my first post, just in case it's messed up.  Grin

The squid was inspired by this post by applesweet:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=328293.0

This is my first time using polymer clay and jewelry... stuff.  I used glow-in-the-dark polymer clay, baked it in pieces, and attached the pieces with thin wire and those squisher thingies to hold the wire.


Meet Squiddy Jr.!


Close up--you can see the wire/squisher things.


Here you can see the beads I decorated him with!


Starfish bead


Ship wheel and seahorse beads


His tiny squid suckers!


From outside my car!

Maybe him glowing in the dark will help me find my car at night  Wink  Thanks applesweet for posting the great idea!  Your squid looks much more squiddy.

Let me know if there's anything wrong with this post--first time!
