1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fun Wire Wrapped Bangles on: February 14, 2014 01:58:59 PM

I just tried making these yesterday for something to do and now I'm hooked. I think they look so cool and they're super simple to make.  Grin

This one is crystal and ceramic beads.

This came from a lot of beads I bought off someone but I'm pretty sure they're some kind of stone dyed to be like imitation turquoise.

Glass and acrylic beads! (It's a skull in the middle, idk if you can tell in the pics..)

The trio! I hope you guys like them. Smiley

I made a tutorial here: http://thesillybaboon.blogspot.com/2014/02/wire-wrapped-bangles.html

Just whipped these up this morning. They were super simple to make and I already had all the supplies in my stash. Smiley

I used beading wire, two different sizes of silver beads and freshwater pearls.

Hope you guys like!

Here are a few of the things I have made recently. Smiley
I'm sorry for the sort of crappy pics, I'm hoping to try to make a lightbox this weekend with my dad so that I can take some better images!

Some stackable bracelets. Jasper, agate, peridot, coral and aventurine.

A bracelet/earring set made of green opal and tigerseye.

A magnesite wrap bracelet or necklace with matching earrings.

Martha Steward Czech bead ombre bracelet and earrings.

I'm really not sure what these are! I bought them at a little bead store near me before they went out of business.
They definitely feel like some kind of stone, not plastic or glass.

Please let me know what you think!

I've had these two charm pieces laying around FOREVER and I finally decided to make something out of them.

I kept them simple. They're designed to be long. The owl only has a simple flower-print bead on it, and the deer has a cluster of pink glass pearl beads in different shades and sizes. Smiley

Thanks for looking!

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Item prices and shipping question. on: April 14, 2013 07:09:18 AM
Hey guys!

My goal is to open up an Etsy shop to list my jewelry on.. but I'm not really sure how to price it. I want to keep things affordable because I realize that most of my stuff may appeal to a younger audience. I also don't use sterling silver or genuine gold materials. I don't really have a price at which these things cost me to make because honestly, most of the materials were found in my jewelry stash that I started building years ago just to make trinkets for myself, or were recycled from other items. I'm hoping that I can clear out some of this stuff and make a little pocket change to get more/better materials. Here's some samples of the type of things I make:

Any suggestions?

Also, does anyone have any tips on calculating shipping? I plan on using a simple padded brown envelope..

Thanks so much!!

Hi guys, just wanted to share some of my new necklaces with you. Smiley

The pink set is a request from my mom, and the blue set is for the sister of the person I made my original purple set for in this post
-> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422180.0#axzz2QAHGMOso

Also, the first picture is supposed to be the Autism awareness colors for April, but I'm not advanced enough to make puzzle pieces..

Thanks for looking!
