I have gone even smaller! I started making micro-mini books for myself and some for author Terri Brisbin of her books, too! I've started to like making lockets that tell a story or have pretty color-matched jewels in them!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Miniature Wine Book Stack Necklace on: April 01, 2015 06:02:27 PM
In addition to any jewelry making, my full time job is a purveyor of wine and beer. I made a new necklace today to show off my knowledge (sometimes) while at work! Smiley

The books are all handmade with folded paper for the pages and then sealed with a coat water resistant sealer.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Squishy Armor Cardigan? on: February 24, 2015 09:15:44 AM
My husband does chainmaille and scalemaille and I don't want to impede on his projects, so I turned to yarn. I'm thinking of making a sweater/jacket that resembles chainmaille with some scale work on the shoulders. I'm wondering if this has been done before/does anyone think that the scale crochet looks stupid on a curve (Like a shoulder)?

I did a sample piece to see what the transition would look like from the Tuinisian honeycomb stitch to the regular crochet scale stitch, and it actually looks pretty darn seamless. I sent a picture to my husband at work and all he had to say was "Oh my god. Chainmaille jacket. Go." So it looks like he now expects one! haha

Any input or ideas for constructing a garment with these two very different techniques?

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Oz Book Tree Ornaments on: December 25, 2014 10:34:45 PM
My tree got 14 new ornaments this year! My tree is completely Oz themed, and since I had made a couple request book ornaments this year, I decided that I needed some too!
The ornaments are all 2" tall, maybe 1.25" wide, and varying thicknesses based on the spines from the book covers.
Books include: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Marvelous Land of Oz, Ozma of Oz, Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz, The Road to Oz, The Emerald City of Oz, The Patchwork Girl of Oz, Tik-Tok of Oz, The Scarecrow of Oz, Rinkitink in Oz, The Lost Princess of Oz, The Tin Woodman of Oz, The Magic of Oz, and Glinda of Oz

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I tried it! (Finally!) Tree Pendant on: December 04, 2014 10:41:27 AM
 I absolutely love Phoenixfiredesign's trees and I thought I'd try one myself since I had everything I needed. I used a keychain ring since I didn't have any thick gauge wire for the circle and I wrapped the roots and then slipped them over the split part of the keyring to hide it. The hook is 3 pieces of the thin gauge wire wrapped tightly together then attached as a hook. I'm pretty happy with how it looks, but I must confess, I think I need to get one of the glow in the dark trees from Phoenixfiredesign!
