1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A couple of necklaces.... on: June 22, 2006 04:48:43 PM
Here are some necklaces I've made recently. I've made lots of stuff lately, but I wear these most often.
First is a tooth-shaped pendant I thought was really cool. It's agate, I believe. I oxidized some silver chain/wire and put 3 glass beads on one side. I am trying to get over my problem with assymetry by using it as much as possible!

This one was kind of an experiment with resin. I had these pendant things with a space in the middle for a picture or whatever. I've had them forever because I couldn't decide what to put in. Finally I decided it would be neat if I collected a bunch of tiny leaves and flowers from my yard and put different things in each one. I've only done this one so far. The background is just something I cut out of an old book. I glued the stuff to the base and poured a tiny bit of resin on top. It's really simple and goes with everything...usually I wear it with this ice cream cone necklace, because I like ice cream!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My grandma's locket got a fancy new chain on: April 07, 2006 10:03:43 AM
I have this locket that my grandma gave me when I was little, and I really like it but never wore it because I didn't like the chain it was on. So I had these "new jade" beads that I thought would look nice with it. There are some tiny glass beads on there as well. I really like how it turned out- it's nice and simple and the gold chain is really sparkly in the light.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / 2 Necklaces... on: April 03, 2006 04:51:45 PM
Here are 2 new necklaces that I've finished recently.

First is a charm necklace with unicorn, key, and leaf charms, plus assorted beads and pearls, on silver chain. It's very dainty and I really like the colors in it.

Second is a necklace with big fluorite beads, wood, aventurine, and faux pearls, wrapped with gold-filled wire. It's much bulkier than jewelry I normally wear, but I like it anyway.

Thanks for looking  Grin
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Altered book- alphabet theme on: March 26, 2006 05:25:14 PM
I started my first altered book about a year ago (it's still not finished!). I did an alphabet theme, with one page being based on a different word, one for every letter.
I've got about 5 pages done, and some partially done. (Obviously, I don't work on it very often.) I had put it away for awhile and found it today while cleaning. Here are a few pages:

First page is A for Architecture:

J for Journey. This one is my favorite because it has maps and plane/train tickets from places I've been:

W for World. The colors didn't come out quite right in this picture. The blue page actually has a shimmery gold sheen on it. Some of the paint is coming off because the pages got stuck together:

Thanks for looking  Smiley
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Long bead and chain necklace on: March 19, 2006 06:28:04 PM
My sister wanted a really long necklace, and she gave me no specifications, so this is what I ended up making. It can be looped 2 or 3 times. I didn't really like long necklaces, but now I want one for me, too.  Wink

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Airplane Necklace! on: March 18, 2006 06:01:01 PM
I made this to sell, but I like it too much, so I'm keeping it!
It has a sterling silver airplane charm, green aventurine coin beads, and some faceted silver beads.  Grin
I know the pictures aren't that great, it was getting dark when I took them.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I think I'm obsessed with birds on: March 10, 2006 07:51:41 PM
I have been making a lot of bird-related things lately....and I have just ordered more bird charms! I can't stop buying them!
Here are 3 pairs of earrings with birds:

Thanks for looking Smiley
