1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / TARDIS Wallet on: August 01, 2011 09:37:57 PM
Today I made myself a wallet shaped like the TARDIS from Doctor Who. It makes me very happy. It's all blue and white felt, hand-stitched, with a hook and loop closure. It's got a space for an ID or driver's license, and spaces for credit cards and cash.  Cheesy







2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cameo Necklace on: July 19, 2010 11:00:31 AM
I made this little necklace the other day when I was bored and feelin' crafty. I had the cameo in my little odds 'n' ends drawer and I found the beads in a different drawer (I should looks through my drawers more often!) There aren't very many pictures, and like usual, they're not very good quality, but I really like it. It turned out much more feminine and pretty than I thought it would. I thought it would be kind of angsty and darker, but I really like how it ended up.


So, there you have it. Just thought I'd post it, cuz it's pretty and sparkly.  Cheesy
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Harry Potter-Inspired Trinkets on: July 19, 2010 10:52:54 AM
I made most of these a long time ago, but I just got around to photographing and posting them. For some reason the pictures still aren't very good (even though I jacked my mummy's camera...shhh). I'm starting to think it's an operator error.   Shocked
Anyways, first up is a little chibi version of Fred Weasley (my favorite!). I made him out of polymer clay, acrylic paints, and some nail polish. A little bit of his hair broke off, I don't know if it shows in this picture. I was so upset when it happened that I almost cried. Though it was my fault; I left him in my purse for too long.  Cry


I put a little ring in the top of his head so I could attach him to a keychain or something, but now I'm a little afraid he might break. Polymer clay isn't the most durable substance known to man...

Not a very good picture, sorry. I was trying to get a close up of his little face, but the flash kept reflecting off the topcoat and making a glare. Sad

Another crappy picture, but you get the idea.

Next is my Luna Lovegood jewelry set. They have this at the WB shop, but it's like $50, so I decided to make my own substitutes. I made her radish (Dirgible Plums) earrings, her cork necklace, and her beetle ring.


Radish/Dirgible Plum earrings. These took me about 10 tries until I got an end result I was really happy with. I tried beading them for about four or five tries, then I switched to clay and finally achieved near perfection (not). No kidding either, I started these last summer before HBP came out, I had some not very good ones that I wore opening day to the movie theatre, then I finally had these good ones by Halloween for my Luna Lovegood costume.

Next her Butterbeer cork necklace, to keep away the Nargles. This was really no great feat; all I did was stick an eye pin into a cork and thread a piece of blue yarn through it. But I still love it.

Then her beetle ring, which I never remember seeing in any of the movies, but it was on the WB site, so I tried to make one. The one they had was beaded, but that failed, so I switched to clay. It's not very good, but it served it's purpose.

Then finally, I made a little DA pin that was based off the necklaces they have at the WB shop. It's not very good quality, as it was made very hastily a few hours before my Halloween party. My friends so nicely pointed out to me that it wouldn't make sense to walk around sporting a pin advertising a secret and illegal club, but I don't care. It's cool.

If you can't tell from the absolutely terrible picture (you probably can't) it says "Dumbledore's Army" around the sides and "D.A." in the center. All I did was cover an old pin with a slab of clay, carve the letters into it with a toothpick, and paint it silver. Not very good quality at all.

So, that was a lot of stuff, but anyways, hope everyone likes it! Comments are appreciated! Cheesy
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Gryffindor Pride Charm Bracelet on: July 18, 2010 11:31:02 PM
After I got home, I went on Craftster and got all inspired, so I finally decided to get to work on some of my planned projects. This was supposed to be a "loaded" charm bracelet, but I quit after this many, partly because I liked the way it looked, but mostly because I had gotten a callous on my finger from my pliers.  Shocked Anyway, I apologize for the slightly awful pictures, the lighting was bad (being that it's 2 in the morning...) and my camera is terrible. So, anywho, this bracelet is mostly red and gold glass beads and a few silver charms. I made it to declare my unswerving dedication (haha) to all things Gryffindor. Plus, I like how it jingles when I move my arm.  Cheesy I hope everyone likes it!

This is the full view. Again, I apologize for the crappy pictures.

Close-up fail.

I like the little horseshoe on the end of it. I added it because I figure a Gryffindor needs a certain measure of luck to handle that infamous courage. Wink

Another full view. I was trying to be artsy and photograph it on a page from PoA, but I think it kind of failed.
Anyways, thanks for looking, and comments would be appreciated!
