1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / You never know! -stash busting necklace on: February 20, 2013 02:31:42 PM
I have not been crafting a lot lately, this past year or so has been difficult (and hard to believe a YEAR has gone by!) but I am slowly getting back into it. I was playing around with stash stuff and I had some charms I had bought (and did nothing with) and as I LOVE Frog Princes I decided he was gonna be my necklace!

Cording was thin mousetail, metallic embroidery thread and organza ribbon with fold over ends. Link , pinch bail, charms and crystals.

I am really enjoying it and I like being back in the swing.

C and C always welcome Smiley

Its good to be back!




2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / My first digital scrapbooking page! on: August 16, 2012 08:00:04 AM
I got a digital scrapbooking program when my father died this spring. I scanned in all the pictures but I haven't made him a page yet. But I wanted to get my feet wet, so I did this simple page of my son.



I know it is pretty simple and most pages have a lot more embellishments, but I felt simple suited the theme and the subject much more. What do you think??
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Vintage luctie flower earrings on: November 23, 2011 12:42:59 PM
I made these for a swap partner on another site who enjoys vintage things. I have been seeing several designs with vintage luctite flower beads, with "stamens" made of headpins and crystals. I got a set of orange lucite flowers and I thought brass would go nicely. Here is the result!



Lucite flower beads, swarovski crystals, and Vintaj brand brass findings.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Artistic Wire Wire Worker tool- product review? on: August 16, 2011 08:33:35 PM
I was at Goodwill today and my eye was caught by a bag of wire spools..eww thats a gross phrase but you know what I mean!  Cheesy

In a quart sized zip bag were a tool with 6 different sized mandrels, and 20 lil spools of colored artistic wire.  I am assuming it is a wire gizmo of some sort (as in coiler) It tells me to refer to the book Wild Wire.

Does anyone have one and have real instructions? For 2 dollars it was worth it for the wire alone but I would like to play with the tool as well Smiley

Here is a link to it on Amazon (No reviews) Sad

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / J & T Challenge 3: Griffin and Sabine Collage bracelet 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!)





9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / More scrabble tile stuffs on: February 14, 2011 06:53:16 PM
I had double drilled these tiles last spring  Embarrassed and had yet to do anything with them. I had some pretty neat mosaic style images so I made a stretchy bracelet and earring set. What do you think? Forgive my photo taking, I am still learning Smiley (and it gets dark very early haha)

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Beaded bookmarks - birthday present for a bibliophile on: February 01, 2011 08:05:40 AM
Made these bead and bezel bookmarks (hehe alliteration is fun!) for my mother's birthday. I took the pictures with the retro camera application on my phone and I already mailed them out so I thought I would post. One of my goals this year was to post more of the stuff I make Smiley

 C and C welcome and appreciated!
