Thanks everyone
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Silver spoon and copper macrame cattail necklace on: May 13, 2013 04:16:54 PM
The cabochon for this necklace was made using a piece of flattened copper pipe, found on the road and an old silver spoon.  The patterns on both layers were cut using a jewelers saw.  The button was made from a piece of spoon handle.  The necklace is knotted using c-lon cord.


3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Poodle Skirt Applique on: July 20, 2011 05:04:31 AM
I was asked to make a poodle applique for a 1950's costume.  I used a felt base and vintage pink embroidery floss.  I used a bullion stitch to make the curls.

So I seen this and was like  Shocked PRETTY!

I love it. I seen that you used a jewelers saw to cut out the trees.

I looked up jeweler saws and I cannot figure out how you used to to get that effect. Where can I absorb the knowledge you possess?
Thanks.  I haven't had any formal training.  I just mimic what I see.  I drill small holes in the spoon with a rotary drill then I put the saw blade through and cut.  You can see a few pictures of how I do it in a blog posting I did.  http://functionalflea.blogspot.com/2011/01/work-in-progress.html
hope this helps.

I used an old metal spreader and cut it to look like a mermaid.  I cut the sand dollars and starfish from scraps left from cutting metal spoons.  The macrame work is done with linen on the outside, but the holding cords are nylon so that the fresh water pearls will not brake the cord as easily.

I was playing around with different ideas for my etsy store, so I decided to revisit macrame.  I hadn't done any for years.  I made a cottolin owl pendant.  The perch and button closure are cut from the handle of a silver spoon.[img][/img]

Oh Wow!  I love it!  How did you get the matchbook covers to lie flat like that?  I know you varnished it, but it still seems that the crease in each cover would have given you a lot of trouble.

Thanks.  The matchbooks were old and had been pressed flat forever.  They did kind of bow when I glued them on, but I did a side at a time and then weighted it down with books until the glue set.

I got this jewelry box at the thriftstore.  It had a paper-like covering that was in bad shape.  When I pulled it off I found out that while the box was wood, the top and the bottom were heavy cardboard and the drawer fronts were metal.  I covered the box with old matchbook covers then coated it with high gloss varnish.  I painted the hardware black.

My aunt asked me to make her a humming bird necklace.  I used an old silver spoon and cut the pattern in using a jeweler's saw.  The clasp is made with the spoon handle.

I used a jeweler's saw to cut the trees out of the spoons.
