14  Re: cuff bracelet swap gallery in The Swap Gallery by april again on: May 30, 2011 09:43:51 AM
Finally got a chance and the weather to take my pics and posted of my cuffs 2 and 3.

Number two was from Larissa-Rasputin:



A denim cuff with an awesome Swallow patch on it! And a Painted and leather cuff, it was a lil snug but she sent me some suggestions that will be trying.


And number three from Tinkstar390:



A lovely button cuff with buttons from her grandmother's stash..always get the best buttons from that kind of stash don't we?  Wink

thank you ladies!

15  Re: Cork board, cork board on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by april again on: May 18, 2011 04:19:00 PM
I made my own too, to go with my desk and chair I had spray painted a bright cheery blue.
Got the frame from the thrift store, it was not a mirror though, was a picture with a backing to the frame that was nice and thick, so I ended up only using one layer of cork and it was still OK. Was not super ornate but I enjoy it!



Thanks for the great idea!

18  J & T Challenge 3: Griffin and Sabine Collage bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by april again on: April 03, 2011 04:38:35 PM


I decided to base my entry on the book: Griffin and Sabine by Nick Bantock. This book is an epistolary novel where the story is told through letters and postcards. The artwork is collage based.

Griffin is an artist with his own card company Gryphon Cards. Sabine is also an artist who illustrates postage stamps for the collection of small Pacific islands she lives on. (Plot summary ends, no spoilers).

I love this book and I had been wanting to do something more mixed media based and this is my first attempt. I scanned Griffin and Sabine's "signatures" and printed them on vellum. I also scanned and resized a background image of a letter in an envelope and an example of Sabine's postage stamp art. I had a custom made stamp made with a gryphon for Griffin's company. It is in a 30mm bezel frame with a glass dome cabochon on top. The completed bezel was then glued to a silver plated cuff bracelet blank.

Comments and criticisms are welcome Smiley I really enjoyed making this bracelet. ( I just wish my photography would show how awesome it looks!)

Pics!

The jewelry box:


The earrings and rings (Rings made with upcycled earring parts)


Bracelet and necklace. She didn't want a lariat that felt like it was choking, and I had this idea for a lariat style necklace, so I made it with a clasp and it is "faux" lariat Smiley I had gotten that cute owl bead from a craftster swap! I think a bead soup one?


Some extras, tattoo flash scrabble tile necklaces, a memory wire bracelet, some buttons and a B for Barbara pin I had gotten in my thrift store jewelry travels (Just waiting for a B person!)


I hope you enjoy it all! This was a fun swap
