I couldn't find a mold of a tiny brain so I made one myself. Here are the resulting pendants, in white stoneware, cone 6.

The cords are vegan waxed cotton and adjustable:

2  Wrap Bracelet From Turquoise Druks in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Hippie9 on: May 08, 2013 06:36:45 PM
My Mother-In-Law bought me these Turquoise druks (the name for a simple, round bead, and it rhymes with "trucks"...Yeah, I never knew *either*). I had asked if she could find some turquoise about the size of a "mature pea".The bracelet wraps around 3 times. She got me these and I made this:

I found this cool Petroglyph shank button at a favourite Fabric Store in Tucson called "Fabrics That Go"....no, not Fabrics TO Go, but Fabrics THAT Go. Someday I'll ask them to explain the name of the store:

3  I Made A Brain! (now with working pictures!) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: May 05, 2013 12:57:10 PM
First I made this based off of a tutorial I found online:

Then I made a two-part mold of it using that purple putty (I forget the name!):

Then I made a dozen half-brains, because I thought the full-size brain would make the resin overflow.:

I also thought that if I used the full-sized brain I could make it bas relief, like the brain is stuck in the resin.....I'm just notsure!

4  I made some of the ever-popular wrap bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Hippie9 on: May 04, 2013 03:53:33 PM
The black lace is waxed (vegan) cotton. So anybody can wear these!

Sorry that it's a little blurry:

This one is green:

5  Cardigan 3/4 of the way DONE!!!! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Hippie9 on: October 04, 2011 02:53:26 PM
I spent the summmer knitting this cardigan:

I just knit my first buttonhole! Well, technically not my FIRST, but I didn't want to knit it into my sweater until I knew how to knit them well.....so I practiced, a LOT!

Now there is one buttonhole in there which will be followed by four more. So exciting!

6  Seahorse Resplendant in Copper! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Hippie9 on: July 16, 2011 07:24:22 AM
It was the last 2 hours on the last day of my week-long jewellery class and I found myself projectless. I decided to sawpierce a seahorse pendant. I didn't know if I would finish it by the end of the class so it's a little unrefined. Still, I think it turned out nicely!

Comments would be appreciated!

7  Australian Opal Bezel in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Hippie9 on: July 16, 2011 07:20:46 AM
I made this pendant in my recent jewellery class. The stone is an Australian Opal that I got at the Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson. The piece is sterling silver:

8  Reminds Me of Tucson! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Hippie9 on: July 16, 2011 07:18:39 AM
This is a pendant I made in my recent jewellery class. It's made of copper (the state metal of Arizona), sawpierced, and has a backing plate with a verdigris area to give the saguaro some colour.

Both copper plates are sawed (sawn?) into the shape of Arizona state.

Comments appreciated!

9  Blues in the Bottle (and bowls!) in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: July 22, 2010 02:50:15 PM
These are the last pieces I threw and glazed (at least for now) My husband and  I are moving from Seattle to Toronto so I won't be able to do ceramics for awhile.

I was particularly happy about this bud vase because, when I threw it, it stayed on-centre the whole time:

A wonky thrown bud vase (wonky seems to be my specialty ;-)

Small bowl:

Swirl inside the bowl:

For my brother, the Leafs fan:

Small bowl glazed in White Chun (a matte glaze) with a schmeer of Aqua Gemstone (a textured glaze) and a decal made from a graphic I found in a local paper:

Two Corn-on-the-Cob Dishes:

Aerial view:

The corn dishes are stamped, one with a cookie cutter of a steer skull and one of a saguaro. Also, although you can't see it here, the sides are stamped with our favourite saying: Just give'r!

I'd love to hear any comments you have....:-)

10  Long Live Rocks! in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: November 20, 2009 12:29:39 PM
This is a present I made for my new sister-in-law. It's a sculpture, I suppose because its function is to sit on a shelf and look interesting. I made the bowl in a rough-hewn way to give it that Flinstones-made-from-a-rock look.

Comments would be appreciated!
