1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Khepara Pendant on: December 08, 2012 05:47:18 PM
I've had this little lovely brewing in my brain for quite some time...



I fashioned this pendant with the legend of Khepara in mind. Khepara is the scarab beetle in Egyptian mythology that pushes the setting sun across the sky. Ancient Egyptians often placed scarab amulets over the hearts of thier mummified deceased, to be weighed against the feather of truth in the final judgement.

With this legend in mind, I set a beautiful natural Citrine crystal at the scarab's feet. I wear him just above my heart.

These rings are sterling silver. I had to make almost 5 wax rings before finding one that was an awesome ring! I'm wearing mine now  Grin

Thanks everyone!

These are sterling silver rings. I still have to get the date inscribed on the inside, but other then that they're basically done.

I just finished a custom set for a girl that had her heart set on Tiffany's Infinity ring, however they aren't making it anymore. Here's my interpretation:



Along with the picture she sent me in thanks:



It makes me so happy that she really liked them!

Hey all, here's a wedding set I just finished making



The groom's ring says his wife's name, Kari. The bride's ring has her husband's name, Derek.

What do you think?

I use a stretchy cast on, followed up by a stretchy bind off and I'm quite happy with the results. It took me a little while to get used to the new methods, but now I won't stop using them! Everything gets a stretchy cast on/bind off now!

I adore the Panopticon... So many of his posts make me burst out laughing! Not safe for work indeed lol.

Yarnharlot is pretty great, and I love Cat Bordhi's stuff. There's another one dancing around in my brain, as soon as I remember it I'll post it.

I've started knitting my christmas gifts...

Stuffed animals for the kiddies, some hats, wristwarmers and tea cosies... Just small projects so I can get my knitting fix and get a gift out of it!

I've made an almost identical shrug, and I knitted it from one ribbed wrist to the next. I honestly don't think starting at both wrists and grafting in the center would look at all different from knitting from one end to the other.

Just make sure you use a stretchy cast on, and a stretchy bind off, and you should be just fine.

If you check my ravelry:

I hope this helps! I just think it would be loads easier to just KNIT, rather then grafting. I don't think the end result would be much different, whichever you chose
