Thank you all. I'm so glad you folks like my necklace!

I made the links, clasp, and the big center bead from copper. I'm not sure if it shows but I etched the copper bead. The two smaller beads I made from resin and the little rectangular beads are garnets.

Thanks for looking!

It's really lovely and well done. And somehow soothing/relaxing to look at.

Thanks!

I'm so glad people like it. I was feeling a little nuts for using such fancy fabrics with old jeans but I couldn't resist. Definitely a dry clean only.
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Denim circles quilt - big pix warning on: October 05, 2009 09:24:23 PM
This is 768 circles cut out of lots of old jeans. The black and white squares are mostly from wedding and evening gown fabric scraps that a seamstress had leftover. They must have been really lovely  gowns.  The rest of the black and white squares also have a floral theme either in print and/or texture. There are two red fabrics, one sheer floral and that pleated stuff. I want to replace them with purple and I'm hoping someone talks me out of doing it.

Right now the quilt is in twelve pieces cause it was easier to work on that way and one side of each square is open because I plan to stuff them. Unfortunately my sewing machine couldn't take it anymore so I have to wait until it's fixed to finish it.

This is two pieces pinned together

In case anyone is interested using Adobe Illustrator to diagram and organize this seemed to help me avoid my usual fogginess and boneheaded mistakes.

Thanks for looking!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A silver shell on: September 26, 2009 09:52:47 PM
I didn't get to the beach this summer so I made myself a shell. Not as great as being at the beach but fun to do.



It's sterling silver cut, shaped, and soldered.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you for those links ragmama!

About how many tiles are in a pound?

You're welcome.

About 80 I think but I'd email and ask them 'cause it's been a while since I bought them.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: how does one pull apart watches for parts? on: September 19, 2009 06:30:05 PM
There are special watch tools- a watch case opener, a knife etc.- to do this. Most jewelry supply places, hobby tool, or even EBay have them.
Go to
http://www.widgetsupply.com/
and do a search on watch for examples.

Here's a wild guess. To me it looks like sealing wax. A custom metal stamp and metallic wax. The way people used to seal letters and documents long ago.
