11  NCIS Abbie- finally done (with a slightly depressing twist). in Needlework: Completed Projects by dewshinesdopp on: February 02, 2016 03:46:31 AM
Hi all.  I am super proud of this.  You see, about a year ago, I was part of the Second Chance Swap. 

Aaaannnd...I botched it.  Life is complex for me, sometimes, and I never really knew why.  Well, right around the same time that I had this 3/4 done, life did the thing that it does for me and I just...stopped.

I had this completed to here:


Well.  I was diagnosed with PTSD shortly thereafter. 

And I have sat there and stared at this completely pathetic 15 minutes worth of crafting, feeling terrible about myself, for about a year.

This morning, I finally did it.  It won't change the fact that I am permanently banned from swapping.  It stinks, and it stings. But, it's for the best.  I know that I have not, and most likely will not, be a reliable swap partner.  But, at least I now know why. 

Here's to always moving forward. 

Here's the final product.  I'm proud of her, and proud of me.

I have been gone for a bit.  Bunch of sick people, and just ~wiped out~ so...I haven't been online much. And I come back to...25 pages I missed?Huh Oh jeeze.  I am never going to catch up. 

But I have been destashing.  I went a little crazy on earrings.  In fact, I made 12 pair just today.  All told..I don't even know how many. 

Some of these might be repeated from other pictures. 

A lariat necklace I made today based of something I saw on pinterest:

Now for the earrings.





I also made a...head necklace...for lack of a better term.  I haven't been able to get a decent picture of it though.

I have made two jewelry displays in the last two days.  Both super easy.  I'll post pictures in a little while, once the paint dries.

Okay, here are three pictures:
1) the tray display I made awhile ago.  This time, it's being used.  It's filled with a bunch of necklaces I made.  Sadly, it's upside down. 


2) the hoop display I made.  The earrings in it are store-bought way back when I managed a Claire's.  It was a dangerous place for someone who was born with the magpie gene.  Tongue


3) the frame display.  It's sideways, because I can't figure out how to change it.  But, all of the earrings on it are ones I made.

16  Random jewelry I have made (pic obnoxious since it's a few things) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by dewshinesdopp on: February 01, 2014 10:43:09 AM
In an attempt to clear out my craft room, I have been pulling out all of the "half finished" projects and completing them. 

Here are some I finished up last night and today. 






And here are some I did awhile ago and forgot about.  Tongue




I'll post more later as I finish up more.  It's so wrong that I have kept things like "closures" keep me from doing it.  Bad crafter, no coffee!

Dewshinesdopp, your bracelet is lovely. I like the camaieu of colors you used and the randomness of it.


Aww, thanks so much yoopidou!  And thanks for teaching me a new word Smiley  I had to google "camaieu".  Now I know there's a fancy word for "make something in random shades of a single color". 

That makes me so happy! 

I completed a few others, only one of which was on my list. 

Behold, more random    camaieu jewelry 





And from my list, a LOST bracelet.  Since I plan to add a few more charms, it is still technically a WIP, but it's full enough to wear, so I'm calling that a win.  Smiley

18  Some of us who wander are LOST in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by dewshinesdopp on: February 01, 2014 10:21:20 AM
So I'm a little obsessive about LOST.  It's been a few years, and I still randomly shout "We have to go back" at my family, just because it fits the situation.

Because this obsession is still dear to my heart, I decided to make something to shout it to the world a little more quietly. 

Behold, my (still in process) Lost charm bracelet.  Sorry for the shadows, my lighting stinks..

30 beads, 4 inches of copper chain, one closure and two findings used.   Ten thousand beads left in order to clear out the bead stash. 



I am pretty sure I am never, ever going to get all of it cleared out, short of just randomly shipping things to people.  Tongue

WOOT!  I created something!  *jumping up and down because my muse has returned*

It's not from my list, but that's okay. 
Maybe I should make a section for "random things that I make that have no purpose other than to make"

Any way... Behold!  I made a green and copper bracelet.  It's kind of random, but I like it.
