1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Altering Phiten Tornado Necklace - Need Help! on: October 09, 2011 09:36:48 AM
Hello, Ladies & Gents!
I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong spot -- Mods, please let me know!

My s-son is turning 11 in a few days. He is a sports fanatic and, as such, has recently become obsessed with these Phiten Tornado necklaces.

They are essentially just two twisted strands.

Their available sizing goes down to 18", but I can never seem to find these in the stores. I have found the larger sizes and, of course, feel like I should be able to alter them!
Is anyone able to look at the picture and suggest how I might alter it? I have read some blogs on the subject about braiding single strands to take up length, but I thought some more experienced Craftsters might have some good ideas for this double strand.

All help appreciated!

3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / ...awkward intro... on: September 20, 2011 06:41:31 PM
Hi everyone. I'm not sure what I should say here -- I'm pretty awkward in real social situations, so why should this be any different?! Wink

My name is Amanda. I am 27 at the time of this post. I was born in New Jersey and raised in Virginia. I am single and have a 4yr old pug named Bella Luna. I enjoy long walks on the....no, wait, wrong website.

Craftwise, I like to make the following things:

jewelry (especially using hand-painted wooden beads)
knitting (although I may have never finished a piece..)
sewing (of handbags and small pockets/pouches. I'm planning a whole run of skirts if I can ever find the time)
shrinky-dinks. Yes, they are their own category..
and finally, all those odds-and-end-crafts..

I'm interested in most things you would find somewhere like Dragon-con but am equally as interested in the Yankees and my hometown AA team, the Richmond Flying Squirrels. I use Twitter and Facebook frequently for both my work and personal lives. Some might say obsessively (but then, we all have our opinions!)...

I guess that's enough to get us going. If anyone wants to chat, well then, let's chat!
