1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Purple Galore! (and a few pics) on: April 15, 2012 03:16:42 PM
So, I've been lurking for awhile and finally got up the nerve to post a finished project!  Cheesy 

My friend's birthday was this past week and her favorite color is purple.  After much brainstorming, I came up with this:

(The pictures aren't the best, I know.  Undecided)

The necklace is hemp cord, made up of square knots and glass beads.  I almost kept it for myself...

The headband was knitted, with rogue yarn from my stash, using this pattern: http://prettystitches.wordpress.com/2010/03/28/checkerboard-headband/

Finally, the box was one of those unfinished deals with a photo frame on the lid.  I'm not thrilled with my paint job (used acrylic).  For my first attempt, it's not too terrible.  The little bird drawing on the lid was a stamper I had and regular black ink.

The birthday girl was thrilled, touched and slightly impressed! It was worth all the work!  Cheesy
