1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my first jewelry attempts! on: June 24, 2007 04:26:20 PM
Hello all,

Below are my first attempts at jewelry making. The earrings, anklet and necklace are made entirely of sterling silver. The beads are glass turquoise, glass crystal, and freshwater pearl. I'm pleased with how they turned out; I started simple. Any comments/suggestions appreciated! Thank you. Smiley

PS > sorry the 2nd pic in particular is fuzzy, I'm working on my photography techniques!

Wow - those are really really pretty. I think I may have found the project that will revive my crochet basket. Great tutorial!

Thanks! I actually just used regular old Crayola crayons, and his outline was done with a fine tip Sharpie.

So this is a gift for my pseudo-boyfriend. He insists Raphael is the best Ninja Turtle, so I made him this pillow for his bed. I drew the design/colored it and then used an iron to get up the extra wax; the red parts are red fleece that are extra soft. It's about 9"x8".



Thanks!

Thanks for all the nice comments, guys. I was inspired to make 2 more, the Rainbow Brite one is for me and the Raphael one is for this guy again (it's his fave Ninja Turtle). I'm not sure what they're destined to become, so far all I have are the images on fabric, which are pretty big - they're both like 5" high. Any ideas?

Thanks again, everyone Smiley

I just used the plain Crayola variety of crayons, and they worked well. Like I said, it's probably not washable or anything since I didn't use "fabric crayons" (I didn't know there was such a thing, they sound neat!) but I'm not sure I'd need to wash a pouch anyway.

As far as the image goes, I just googled "Sir Didymus" and then looked at what images come up. Hope that helps!

Hey again,

Just an FYI - I gave the guy his pouch tonight and his reaction was definitely a good one. He was amazed, and he loved it! Hurray Sir Didymus! Smiley

PS. I also put a burnt Postal Service cd inside, so I think that helped too. Smiley

Thanks!

Basically you color the parts you want directly onto the fabric using crayons. Then you put a piece of paper over what you just colored and hold an iron over it for just a second. The iron melts the excess wax, which ends up on the paper. You're left with soft fabric with what looks like a screen-printed image on it Smiley However, I'm assuming it's not washable, since what's on there is still crayon. My roommate tried it first, so she knows more about it than I do - PenGwend - but it's really neat!

Thanks everyone! Smiley

I printed out a picture of him that I found online and put it on a lightdesk, then traced sort of a cartoon version of him. Then I colored him in. This was my first real try with this method, and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.

For all those out there who know and love "Labyrinth," you'll get this. It was/is one of my favorite childhood movies, and I just recently exposed this guy I like to the wonders of David Bowie's 1986 musical and theatrical prowess. His favorite character was Sir Didymus, so I decided to make him a Sir Didymus pouch (God knows what he'll use it for). I drew the outline on the fabric with a Sharpie, then colored it in with crayons, and used the iron/paper technique to get up the extra wax. Voila!



Thanks, guys and gals Smiley
