1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Crazy-Cool Dinosaur Necklace in Teal on: March 21, 2008 08:46:16 PM
That is an adorable necklace!  Actually, as creepy as it is I made a dino necklace out of polymer clay too...only mine sort of looks line a cross between a dinosaur and a lizard.  Yours looks great though!

Dinosaur-lizards are cool too! Don't let anyone tell you different!

Thanks for the compliments guys  Smiley

This came out so well I think I have to make a ton of them. The hardest part about making this was getting the right shape down. I love him to death, what do you all think?

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

This is Milo, he's my second polymer clay robot, and friend of James. He's a bit short and stout at 3 inches tall, but totally lovable and makes a great pendant!

Totally crazy-cute. Did you use a mold for the shape? I've been dreaming up my own skull-themed jewelry, and I only hope they come out half as adorable as yours!
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Jointed Robot Pendant on: March 19, 2008 03:19:38 AM
Thanks for all the compliments! I've had little jointed robots in mind for a long time, but kept putting off making one. I'm really happy with how James came out, and I finished him up a few hours ago (all I ended up doing was adding eyes and glossing up his little black screen). I absolutely love the finished product, and after a couple hours worth of sleep, I'll put up some pics  Smiley

I actually have another little robot in the oven at the moment. His name is Milo  Grin

Not quite a "completed project", but pretty close. This is the first in a line of robot jewelry I'm going to be making. Each will be jointed and completely unique!

This is James. He's 3 inches tall and will make a pretty adorable pendant. I've still got to make a face for him and sand down a couple parts, but I just couldn't wait to take pictures! I'm thinking maybe rhinestone eyes.

Here he is on some knitting.

Another picture and more details in my blog.
Thanks for looking!

It isn't the best picture, but here he is finished! I decided against adding a mouth, his little yellow eyes were so cute all on their own! I finished the second robot today (Milo) and I'll take and post pictures of him when there's some light. Probably in his own thread.

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Wire bangle bracelet with gem chips on: March 03, 2008 09:25:34 PM
Thanks for all the compliments!
I'm making a second one now
and so far it seems to be going faster.
I hope to sell them for about $30-35, depending on how many stones are used.

As for the crocheting and knitting with wire,
that's something I'm wanting to learn anyway.
In my experience with it though, the result is different
and usually less sturdy.
So ideally I'd like to do both.

Thanks again for all the kind words  Smiley

I sort of have a thing for jewelry surrounded by dry cereal  Roll Eyes

I pretty much did all the weaving by hand, with the occasional help of some round nose pliers.
It was an experiment so I really have no idea how long it took. I'd say at the very least 5 or 6 hours
So if I use minimum wage as a guide it would be at least $35-$42 not counting cost of materials.
This might be the sort of craft that isn't worth making to sell, because I'm not sure I could get that much for it.

I'm not sure what to call this style..."woven" maybe? Anyway, this thing took tons of wire to make, and is covered in an assortment of gemstone chips including garnets, turquoise, rose quartz, amethyst, and quartz crystals along with some mystery stones. I added three small white buttons to accent it. What do you think?

I'm actually thinking about making more of these to sell, any suggestions on a fair price?
10  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Home Made Marshmallows! with recipe on: December 24, 2007 12:55:55 AM
Eee! I have to make some!
Those are possibly the cutest little marshmallows ever.
I'm not attending holiday celebrations with the family
so maybe tomorrow I'll spend the day making pretty green marshmallows
to send with everyone  Smiley
They look delicious!
