61  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Two Quick Necklaces Today on: April 26, 2013 06:43:08 PM
I finally picked up almost everything I need to try some resin pendants this weekend. I want to make some pendants from some tiny little shells I got this last summer, with some sand from Tampa. The sand is white, and the shells came from Virginia Beach in July when my in-laws came to visit.

While they were here, I bought a "shark's tooth" from one of the local gift shops, and I use that phrase "shark's tooth" loosely, because really...who knows what animal it could have come from. Not that it bothers me. I figured it was also a nice reminder of the first time I ever step foot on the beach out here, when we moved here in 1998. A guy was fishing in the surf, right amongst the waders and swimmers there. Someone on the beach stopped me (I must have looked like a tourist way back then), and told me to ask him what he had in the five gallon bucket he was sitting on. I asked him, and he showed me a shark he had just pulled in from that same water, maybe anywhere from 1-3 feet deep. It was about three feet long and pissed it was in his bucket. I asked him what he was going to do with it. He said filet and eat it. Smiley

Anyway, when my husband's uncle was here, we took him to the Chesapeake Bay beach in Norfolk. While digging around on the beach, I found a rock with almost perfect little holes in it. The shape of it reminded me of a bird's skull, specifically, a crow for some reason. I kept it to turn into a pendant.

I finally got my ass in gear and picked up some artificial leather cording today at AC Moore. I turned both the shark's tooth (because it was cheaper for me to do it myself than buy a shark tooth pendant already) and the rock into simple necklaces.


There are actually four holes in the rock (on the right). They couldn't have been placed any more perfectly for this little project.

Shitty picture from my cell phone but I was too lazy to dig out my camera. My friend loved this little guy. I actually got a text message from her (when she found it on her porch) that just said SQUEEEEEEE!!!

Rika, I'm so sorry. I'm keeping you and your family in my thoughts. Sending hugs your way.

Very cool! I crocheted a couple bags for myself. The cashiers at my grocery store have told me they prefer it when customers bring in their own bags, because reusable bags are typically bigger and stronger than plastic bags.

Oh Rika. I'm so sorry to hear that! I'm thinking of you!

That's so funny to me that I came across your lil'Pinhead, because a friend of mine wanted me to make her a Pinhead bunny like the one here (http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/killer-bunnies-tiny-knit-bunnies-are-cute-but-deadly). I just have to get the pins tomorrow and he'll be done too. Smiley

I'm glad you liked it. I'm starting to enjoy painting but I can't do faces. Smiley

Yay! Another crocheted Who scarf. Smiley I made one last year.

You know, it might not be your tension. A few of my colors (because I wasn't using the same weight/brand for all of my yarn) do the same thing as your scarf. I think my tension is fairly consistent, so I'm thinking its the change in yarns.
