1  hair tie baubles --> jewelry/pendants (3 pics) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by five10A on: June 08, 2006 11:18:18 PM
I found a bunch of unused hair ties from back in the day.  I wanted to get rid of them since I have no use for them, but I also didn't want to waste anything.  So I cut off the elastic bands:

I knew I want to make jewelry out of them, but I didn't know how.  Yesterday I finally made a "tough love" necklace.  It took forever to wrap wire around it.

Any ideas on what I can do with the rest?  I don't know about those orange moons...

2  Fun with wire and a few beads (img heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by five10A on: June 03, 2006 12:56:44 AM
Last night a made a ton of jewelry for my friends, and today my fingers were itching to make some more.  I've gotten into playing with wire lately, but since soldering is out of the question (I have no space in my apartment to do it safely), I can't do a whole lot except bend, twist, and hammer.

Here are a few of the things I made.  Updated with better pictures.

This pair of earrings is made from plain copper wire.  The bundles near the clip-on findings are just wires wrapped around.

This one is made with good ol' 20 gauge craft wire.  I have an obsession with leaves lately.

Some other stuff that came out matchy, though not intentionally

...and my last piece for the night....

The beads are actually not the same.  The one on the shorter ribbon is cherry quartz, but the one on the longer ribbon is an opaque red-orange bead.

3  Clip-on earring storage in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by five10A on: May 21, 2006 11:03:57 PM
I'm fairly new at jewelry-making (got serious about it around February) and this site offers great inspiration.  I've been churning out clip-on earrings like crazy, but all of the cool earring storage methods are for wired earrings.  Here's what I've got so far:

As you can see, I'm running out of space.  Any ideas on how I can make a bigger and better one?  Thanks!
