21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wire Wrapped Agate Geode Seahorse Pendant on: May 31, 2012 08:25:25 PM
This is my very first wire wrapped Agate Geode slice. I never did anything like this before and it's one of my all time favorite pieces. I had a lot of geode slices laying around and I wanted to do something with them and I got a idea to turn them into wire wrapped seahorses. Easier said then done lol. It took me over 2 hours to make this one but I like the way it turned out. It was very fun to make.

Thank you....I design the image on paper first then I use Saral Transfer paper to transfer the image to the bottle. I then etch the bottle using the Dremel. I wanted to etch freestyle lol but I am afraid of messing it up. One day I will be brave enough to freestyle ^_^

24  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Hand Etched Wine bottle Luminary - Flower and Bird on: May 29, 2012 12:31:21 AM
This is my hand etched wine bottle luminary. I hand etched flowers and a bird on the wine bottle using only a Dremel. I cut the wine bottle using a ice and candle method that I seen done on Youtube. I love doing creative and unique things and so I taught myself how to etch wine bottles. I love making luminaries because I looooove the way the candle light shines through the bottle. It very pretty and relaxing ^_^

Thanks every one ^_^
@BeaG
How do you use it as an incense burner? Just fill it with sand and put an insence stick in it?
-------------------------------------------------------------

With the Dremel I drill 2 holes in the side of the bottle for ventilation.  How I use it is I stick a incense in a large jump ring and put that in the mouth of the bottle. The ashes fall to the bottom of the bottle and you have no ashy mess. I love seeing the incense smoke rising out of the bottle. I love etching ^_^

This is my hand etched wine bottle incense burner- Peacock. I love this incense burner. It is one of the first few etches that I made. I taught myself how to hand etch glass using only a Dremel less then a year ago. I seen a very few people online do hand etched glass and I thought why not give it a try? After practicing for a short time I got the idea to make hand etched wine bottle incense burners and luminaries. It has been a wild ride and I am having so much fun doing this. I just had to share ^_^

Wooooooow that is AMAZING..I love it. It is sooo cuuute. I see why Ripley would want it...Niiice...Depending on how many hours it took you to make I think $500 is fair. It wouldn't hurt to ask for more. Great Job...
28  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: How much to charge a friend for basic sewing lessons? on: May 28, 2012 01:06:58 AM
I would charge by the hour. If it is not a close friend I wouldn't feel bad charging $8 to $10 an hour. Tell him you will teach him for so many hours and ask for the money upfront. Keep it simple. It sounds like fun to me. I would do it ^_^

I wish someone told me about tags. How to find good ones any way. I wish someone told me how to take good photo's. It took me a lot of trial and error to figure that out Then I came across some good forums that told me how to take great pictures ^_^ I wish someone told me that I should read the forum post. lol It would have saved a whole lot of headaches if I started out reading the forums and posting questions I had no matter how crazy the question may seem.
Being in business is really a growing process. lol I didn't learn patience until I started my own business. I learned Patience, building strong connections with people and not cutting corners is key to having a successful business lol that and having good tags ^_^
