31  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Yet another Pin-Up Girl, but I'm proud of it anyway. on: May 10, 2005 10:26:55 AM
I got this idea and website from another Crafster, but I can't seem to find the post.  If I find it, I will give credit.  I went to http://www.needlecrafter.com/ and got a bunch of free patterns and used an iron-on transfer pen to put the images onto the fabric.  They have a lot of cool pictures (deco, arts and crafts, old-fashioned) at the site as well as some ideas for what to do with them.  I'm already on to the next one.
32  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Questions about wire. on: May 02, 2005 05:44:56 PM
I've been making some necklaces lately making my own eye-hooks out of 20 gauge floral wire.  It was super cheap and great for me to learn on, but I don't have much experience with this and I'm not sure how it will hold up in the long run.  I want to get better wire, but I am not sure what to get.  I like the 20 guage size for now because it's pretty sturdy (I'll get smaller when I want to go more delicate).  I looked into getting sterling silver wire from Fire Mountain, but I am not sure what "full hard", "half hard" or "dead soft" means.  (I tried to use my imagination, but I ended up nowhere near jewelry making).  Can anyone help me out?
33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Unwanted and lonely beads find homes. (Pics) on: April 29, 2005 08:48:17 AM
So I went to the "cheaper" craft store in this area and got this huge container of beads for eight bucks.  It was cheap because some of the beads are broken and many of them are rejects that didn't make it into the regular bead containers offered.  There were still, however, some fantastic beads in there and I made these two bracelets and necklaces out of them.  I still have many beads left, too.  I think I will save the broken and unusable ones for a moisaic of some kind.
