1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted beads necklace on: September 06, 2006 02:55:36 AM
I'm not sure whether I should post this in the knitting board or jewellery board... anyway, I made this knitted beads necklace, with inspiration from the Julie pattern (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTjulie.html) in the Summer 06 issue of Knitty.

Since the ribbon wasn't going through the tiny holes of my beads, I used black yarn, and knotted it to the ribbon in the end.
Voila Smiley

2  EUROPE / FRANCE / Matériel pour faire des bijoux? on: June 28, 2006 01:20:21 AM
j'aurais voulu savoir si quelqu'un sait ou trouver du matériel pour faire des bjoux (boucles d'oreilles en particulier - donc perles, boucles, tiges...) pas trop cher. D'habitude je vais à Loisirs & Créations, mais le choix de perles n'est pas énorme, et le matériel plutot cher et limité.

PS: if anyone here wants the translation of this message...
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Crystal earrings on: June 15, 2006 02:07:05 AM
I made these earrings from the ones i saw on a girl in the subway. They're made from golden string and clear crystal Swarovski beads (8 for each earring). Swarovski beads are kind of expensive but they give a nice glitter.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pin-up coasters on: June 14, 2006 11:05:10 AM
As i had a day-to-day pin-up calendar I didn't know what to do with, i made coasters:

I don't really know what it's used for, but at a craft store I found some cardboard sheets with foam on the inside. I used glue, and 3 layers of varnish to secure the coasters.
And everybody seem to appreciate them (especially the guys:))

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / coasters question on: April 12, 2005 06:55:43 AM
i'm willing to make my first attempt in making coasters from pinup images (i bought glue and something mod-podge-like since it's not sold in France), but since they're on very thin paper, i was thinking about sticking them to cork. anyone has ever done that? or maybe you could advice me another material...
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / one pin-up a day calendar on: March 13, 2005 09:10:06 AM
my boyfriend offered me for christmas this calendar with a page representing a pin-up per day
(here it is).
so since we're march 13th, i've already 61 pin-ups hanging on my desk... we already thought of making magnets and coasters, but if you have other ideas...
the pin-ups images are approx 3,7 x 3 inches (9,5 x 7,5 cm)

thanks Smiley

10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / peppermint citronella massage balm on: April 21, 2004 08:18:06 AM
i made this balm for my sister after seeing it in a shop;
Here's the receipe :
- 4 tablespoons jojoba oil
- 4 tablespoons sweet almond oil
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon 1/2 shea butter
- 1 teaspoon beeswax
- 6 drops peppermint essential oil
- 6 drops citronella essential oil
melt everything but the EOs, then add them when it's cooled a bit, and put in a jar.

(as for the packaging, i'm in lack of jars so it's an old yoghourt jar with transparent film cover)
