11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Friendship bracelets all grown up on: August 01, 2010 03:29:14 PM
This summer I went on vacation with two of my younger cousins, and brought along my old friendship bracelet instruction books to keep them busy during the 10 hour car ride. I ended up making quite a few myself, so when I got home and remembered I had this beautiful (and soft!) fingering weight yarn, I couldn't resist making a few "grown up" friendship bracelets that I could wear all the time.



And here is a closeup of the buttons I used for toggles.

Does anyone know of any good craft stores in Columbia? Specifically bead/jewelry finding stores?

I made this last summer when I accidentally stayed up until 8 AM.
Whoops. At least I have a fun bracelet to show for it!

There is a needle point store called Sign of the Arrow in Ladue, at 9740 Clayton Rd.

Also there are a few Ben Franklin Crafts locations around St. Louis. They're not a very big store and don't have the best selection but I always find good stuff there.

Store 4 in the City museum (I'm almost positive that is what it is called) is INCREDIBLE. Almost everything is under 12 dollars, and they have some really great stuff that rotates often. Once they had a whole rack of old timey tuxedo jackets. I've bought tons of stuff there, including a bunch of old gold chains.

Also, just for the record Rag-O-Rama is now Avalon Exchange. It was bought out, but still sells the same things.

I've seen many versions of these bracelets around the internet, including here on Craftster, but I love mine so much I decided to post them anyway. They're so fun, I'm sure I'll be making more soon.

This is another project from my Beginning Costume Construction class last year (not a costume, I know, it was really more of a general sewing class).

So cute! One of these days I'm going to learn some embroidery. I hope my first try looks this good!
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Repainted jewelry box on: July 07, 2010 01:20:05 PM
Alright, so I've had this old jewelry box in my room for ages. My mom used to be a geriatric social worker, and she got it from one of her patients who passed away. I didn't think to take before pictures, but it was really not much to look at. Just natural wood with black accents. All scratched up, too.

This past spring break I finally decided to do something about it, and here it is!




Here it is opened all the way. I had to make the picture small because it was so wide, sorry.


Detail of the lace.


And a detail picture of how the (pretty awesome) hinges work.

First I took the whoooole thing apart (It is held together by 28 screws, plus two hinges), sanded it down, and spray painted  it all black. Then I sprayed it with about 100 coats of varnish to make it nice and shiny. then I painted the insides turquoise, mod-podged bits of lace inside, and put the whoooole thing back together.
