11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / spiked hoop dangle earrings on: February 13, 2013 07:45:23 PM

These earrings are made from vintage brass hoops, acrylic spikes, and gold-tone craft chain. The hoops are 2" and the earrings are a total of 4" long.
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / men's Eye of Horus necklace on: February 13, 2013 07:38:09 PM

This necklace was made after seeing some beautiful copper wire pieces by the artist Finyx on Etsy, his work can be seen at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finyx

I received a length of gunmetal chain as a freebie with a purchase and wanted to use it to make a "manly" necklace that would go with pretty much anything in my closet. The wire was originally just a large gauge aluminum craft wire. Once the piece was bent into shape I painted it with black nail polish, then used sandpaper to sand away part of the wire. The end result looks very much like oxidized silver.

Farted out this cabochon months ago when I was experimenting with suspending things in resin. It was made in layers using acrylic paints and gold leafing. The rest of the necklace is made from findings and chain that I've been collecting over a long period of time.

necklace is 17" long with a 1.5" pendant

These are lovely!  I love your style.  So are all the stones actually resin?

Thank you, you're kind to say so Tongue
Yep, the only one which isn't resin or acrylic is the purple tumbled glass "geode". All the metal is metal though save for the spikes on the dangles of the bracelets and the teal gem necklace. Those are also acrylic.

Each piece was made from random bits I've collected over the years. Everything has new and reclaimed findings, as well as a few handmade resin pieces.

17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Olive Rabbit Fur Collar on: December 21, 2012 11:21:44 PM

I've always really loved colorful furs but custom dyed pieces are pretty expensive. After looking around online I found two absolutely gorgeous custom dyed rabbit hides for only 13 dollars and some change each. Instantly loved the color, so I knew i had to grab them.

Though i've never worked with fur before it was surprisingly easy (and kind of fun). To cut it i just flipped the hide over to the back and used an E-XACTO blade to follow along the pattern outlines. Once that was done I used quick-and-dirty hand stitching to fuse the pieces, and then finished the edges using E-6000. All in all the project was finished in about 4 hours.

This coat is so beautiful. The combination of plum wool and pleating is very luxe. Incredible job.

I LOVE this! Never really saw anything like it before. Such a creepy-cute idea for Halloween.
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Wax Paper Stenciled and bleached T-shirt on: October 31, 2012 09:52:54 AM
(redo of a project I recently posted)

This shirt started out as a plain black tee which I "reverse tie-dyed" using bleach, then stenciled over.

The stencil was created by tracing a design onto wax paper, then carefully using a razor knife to cut along the lines. Once the stencil was cut, I lightly sprayed the shirt and the backside of the stencil with hairspray, then used an iron to fuse the paper to the fabric. The hairspray securely keeps the stencil in place, but also peels away easily after.

Once the stencil was down I used a sponge-brush to dab layers of fabric paint into the fabric, making sure not to lift the corners of the stencil. I then allowed the paint to become somewhat tacky before I peeled the paper away. Done correctly this can produce results that look as clean as screen-printing.
