1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / The Little Prince Bracelet on: August 11, 2016 07:33:23 PM
We just watched Netflix's The Little Prince tonight and I remembered how much I loved the book - had to put this bracelet together! I had the book charm made up, and had just gotten these great rose charms so it needed to happen!

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mermaid on: April 04, 2016 07:24:37 AM
My friend's little girl turned one in March and she just came into town this past weekend. Her room is themed around a ship painting that her great-grandpa did, so I thought a mermaid would be a perfect birthday present! Got the ultimate seal of approval when my friend sent me a couple photos and said that the whole 4 hour drive home, her girl was patting the mermaid's back or stroking her hair - and she even tried to feed her goldfish snacks!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mini Mona Lisa Necklace on: March 20, 2016 09:09:11 AM
I made this last night as a test piece. I 3D printed the frame and then painted it. The painting is sealed wherein I added a bit of texture to make it look like it was painted.



I tried out a couple other paintings, but I think I going to try to print a larger margined frame and see what that looks like.

Made these today in anticipation of an art fair coming up. I wore one as a necklace today and loved how teeny it was!

Thank you! Usually wood plugs are finished with some sort of oil. I use jojoba on my ears all the time, so it's like more of the same. Sometimes they are finished with beeswax first to fill some of the wood pores, which I think I may try next time, as I picked a wood with a pretty big grain and it is thirsty for the oil and keeps drying out. I love the wood look, but like you said, there isn't a ton out there (especially for Tolkien fans) that is wood and not metal or plastic.

On a whim tonight - listening to the BBC radio adaptation of Lord of the Rings, which is fantastic if you've never heard it! - I decided to try my hand at making some plugs. I recently was able to start wearing wood plugs in my 0g (about 8mm) ear stretches, so I wanted to make some that I could woodburn J. R. R. Tolkien's signature symbol into.



I cut a rough 1" long dowel from some scrap in our shop and started sanding it down to a circle. To make the flares (each earring has a smaller middle part and slightly wider outside, called a flare) I wrapped sandpaper around a pencil and sanded the middle of them. After sanding down to smooth, I heated my tapered wood burning tip up to as high as it would go so that I barely had to touch the surface and therefore didn't have a chance to burn something super deep. After practicing a couple times, I ended up free handing the symbol as it worked too fast to even follow pencil lines. I then finished them with jojoba oil and tried them on! The oil will eventually turn them a bit darker, but I like where they are right now, too.

It is about 2" tall, base is 5x5". I've seen that castle, and I'd love to have a 3D printed house for real!

Thanks guys! Lettersalad, my husband and I got a Printrbot Simple Metal kit last December. 3D printers are not at the point that normal printers are in ease, but I love the futzing process of trying to make a perfect print! They are definitely fun to mess with! Smiley

I have been tinkering around with my 3D printer lately and I decided to model my own new (old) home that we bought in May of last year. The print is great except for the fact that my top layers needed to be thicker to cover the inner fill honeycomb pattern, but this was a test print. I used a fine point tipped heat pen for brick details and acrylics for color.
Left is our home, top right is the model itself, middle right is the fresh print, and bottom right is with texture and color.
