1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Umbrella tips bracelet on: November 11, 2014 12:20:39 PM
I threw out a few broken umbrellas a while back, for some reason I thought to take off and keep the little plastic tips at the ends of the spokes. They'd been sitting quietly in my crafts box for years, almost forgotten until yesterday when I saw them and finally decided to do something with them Smiley These come from two different umbrellas (I think), I threaded and tied them together then added some decorations Smiley All materials are scraps found from around the house, some leftover too-short embroidery threads, a random white string and yellow elastic. I quite like the end result! Cheesy

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tree pendant on: November 11, 2014 11:03:21 AM
Made this cos I was bored the other day Tongue I've been wanting to try my hand at these wire tree thingies for a while, glad I finally got to it! It's just made out of stuff I found lying around, plastic (glass?) beads, some of my dad's stainless steel dental wires (they're normally used for braces :|), a white paper clip and embroidery threads. It's quite small (pound for comparison) and very light. I think I can see myself making a lot more of these... Cheesy

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper plant on: December 07, 2012 02:06:12 AM
Not entirely sure if this is the right place to post this, but anyway Tongue
I made this is my spare time, a paper "sculpture" I'd say? There's no glue or tape whatsoever involved, just drawing paper cut and slotted together Smiley

Might sound a little weird but I was thinking of the houses of Rivendell when I made the base, that's the curly leaves part. I really like how it turned out Cheesy

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bananas are good on: November 24, 2012 02:18:42 PM
This idea popped up in my head a few days ago so I thought, why not give it a go? Cheesy

It's meant to be a pendant that can hang in two ways, but now that I've finished it, I'm thinking of making a second one that says "I like bananas" (so to complete the phrase) and make it a pair of earrings instead Smiley

Sorry for the bad penmanship, I've never made words with wires before Tongue And I swear this piece is actually silver. It's just this weird lighting in my room made it look gold, oh well...

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Evenstar on: November 17, 2012 04:42:29 PM
This is my first project with wires and I'm quite happy with the result Smiley It's based on the movie version of Arwen's beautiful Evenstar. (I like the peice so much I just HAD to make one for myself)
I don't have any proper wire-working tools so some parts, like the top bit, were a real pain to make... it was totally worth it though!
