1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Matchbox Necklace on: May 06, 2006 06:00:17 PM
Hi everyone!

This necklace was inspired by asmileforsin's post:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=85907.0

I poked a hole in the top of the matchbox and made a loop for the chain with an eye hook (I think that's what it's called. I'm not sure.)

The words are: Collection, One of a Kind, grace and creativity, paris, Latte, and the letters NY.  I cut them out from an issue of Vogue.

I'm thinking about adding images/drawings to the sides of the matchbox, but I haven't decided yet.

Hi everyone!

I made this necklace earlier today.  I  used thread, a crochet needle, and after every 7 stitches, I threaded on a bead and continued crocheting.

And a close-up:

What do you think?

Yep, just one.  I used 32 mm wire, which I didn't realize was so thin when I bought it.  It took me about half an hour to make this one, and just as I started stringing the second earring, the wire broke.  Oh well.  I'll make the other half later.  I used green beads and alternated between dark and light green.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Black Button Book Purse on: April 16, 2006 07:09:49 PM

I just finished making this purse today.  It's made from an old literature book, painted black, and some fabric and ribbons.  I superglued the lining to the book, but I doubt it'll stay for long.  It's not very practical because it doesn't hold too much, but it was a good learning experience.

Here's the outside with the buttons:

And the inside:

Sorry about the picture quality... I used my cell phone to take theh photo.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First Pairs of Earrings on: April 16, 2006 07:03:07 PM
Hi everyone!

I made my frist pairs of earrings the other.  I bought a kit from Michael's and made these earrings.  I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.  Thanks for looking!

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Are books worth the money? on: April 10, 2006 08:37:45 PM
Hi everyone.  New to craftster and jewelry making.  Smiley

I stopped by Barnes&Noble today to look at the books they have on jewelry making and found a few that interested me.  The books are pretty expensive ($20-$30.00 range) and I rather not spend that much money on them if they won't be too much use to me.  I've heard that getting/subscribing to some of the beading magazines is a much better option and that the magazines are more helpful than the books.

So I was wondering, which do you find more helpful?  Magazines or books?  Which books/magazines, exactly, do you like the most?

*I did a quick search on this, but didn't come up with anything.  If I missed a post already explaining this, sorry!*  Thanks for all your help!
