21  New Stuffs! (IMG chubby) in Beads: Completed Projects by StarFire on: October 05, 2008 05:46:55 PM
Here are some pics of beaded goodness I have left from the summer.  Hope they aren't too blurry.  Still trying to figure out the new digi.

The Blues:  Blue freshwater pearls strung with silver spacers.  The dangle consists of swarovski crystals, vintage german glass beads, and glass leaf charms.

Sparkling Heart:  Round swarovski crystals (in fuschia and fire opal colors) "floating" on black tigertail around a large heart focal.  The focal has a color range of sparklies going from orange to light pink.  The toggle is a sterling heart.

Chocolate & Teal:  Wire-wrapped chocolate-colored faux pearls with a round pendant.  Pendant depicts image of butterflies and flowers in brown with a teal background.

Cameo Love:  I love Cameos.  My friend and I found a bag of old cameos at the flea market this past summer and split the cost and contents of the bag.  I learned how to set them and where to find suitable settings for them.  So, a necklace was born.  Made of wire-wrapped white faux pearls, grey and pink swarovski crystals.  I tried to make the cameo image show up  better, but nothing I know how to do seemed to work.  Sorry!

Puffy and Swirled:  A bracelet and earring set.  Pink swarovski crystals paired with unknown puffy beads (pinks, greys, and mints swirled through).  I think they are some sort of semi-precious stone, but have no idea what.  The colors in them are what drew me to buy them though. 

Hope you liked looking!  ^_^

Hey guys, sorry Ive been absent for so long.  Things here are a mess.  Anyway, I recieved from cigarettesandvalentines a looooong time ago (the 15th, I think) and I know she has posted her pics for me, but I also uploaded them into my photobucket account. 


I LOVE the weddin' photo.   Grin

Also like these a lot:

The carnival ride pic is my wallpaper right now.  ^_^

Anyway, thanks for the great pics and even more wonderful frame, cigarettesandvalentines!  The frame is going to house the Scrubs cast photo I got in my Season 3 DVD set...right over my new crafting area in my new home.  Whee!

I just hope my photos come out as well as yours.  My digi kept acting up (the battery case door is cracked) and I had to use a disp. 35mm camera for most of the photos.  I havent used one in so long and I hope you dont end up with a bunch of finger photos.  >_<

I recvied from Muria over the weekend (I was out of town)! 

Here is a pic of what she sent:

I cant wait to start reading the book!  The crocheted bookmark is wonderfully done and she sent me an extra item!  A paperback clutch covered with an aqua colored velvet-like fabric!  Very handy!  Thanks much, Muria!

Also, here is a closeup of the bookmark I made for Muria:

Glad you like it, Muria.  I fell in love with it so much, I was tempted to keep it for myself. <3

Well it has been three weeks since I first bought this kit and here is my progress as promised:

This is after 2 weeks of work.  I had to stop for a week to work on a swap project.  Tongue   I hate craft ADD.

Starfire: Your PT will look just fine on cream fabric! I did mine with the fabric from the kit.  I just went down and looked at it, the fabric isn't that much darker than cream.  It took me about 3 years to finish this one, but the last year I was laid off so I was able to put a lot of time into it.

Thanks!   To be quite honest, I am kind of scared of my PT kit.  LOL.  I really want to buy a nice scroll frame to work it on and since I am preparing to move an entire household I have put PT away for now.  I'll pull it out once I am settled into my new home and have a scroll frame.  In the meantime, (since I NEED something to work on!) I have this one:

Beautiful Bird, Dimensions Gold Collection.
Told you I have a thing for peacocks.   Anyway, this one will hopefully be finished by November.  It is much smaller than PT, about 5x7, but the detailing in it will be a good test for me. 

I'll post progress pics in a couple weeks.

27  <3 Bracelets! in Beads: Completed Projects by StarFire on: May 23, 2007 10:10:52 AM
Here are some I have made:

Pearls with jade-colored firepolished glass beads.

Pearls with swarvoski crystals in clear & very pale blue.  I call it "Something Blue" because I think it would be a great bridal piece.  It has blue, but not enough to distract from all the bridal white.

Rose Quartz with pearls w/ earrings.

28  Red Necklace Set in Beads: Completed Projects by StarFire on: May 22, 2007 11:59:18 PM
I am personally pretty proud of this necklace.  I knew I just had to buy the focal bead at a show a couple of months ago and did not know how to use it after I got home.   One night I came up with this:

Group Shot.

Closeup of necklace focal.   Blown glass bead made in Italy.  Other beads include: swarvoski crystals, seed beads, and goldtone beads.

Sorry for shadowy and rumpled background in the pics! 

Earrings to match!

Thanks for looking! Lemme know what you think!

I am very interested in joining this, but probably will not even begin to start on my project until mid-April.   Also, I joke that this thing is my "5 year project."   That is, I can fully see myself working on it 5 years from now because it is so insanely detailed...but beautiful. 

Here is an image: 

I know it is small, but let me point out a few things.   The finished size is 22.5" X 14.5" on 25 count evenweave.    Sadly, I bought the kit through eBay (it is discontinued) and the seller failed to mention that there was no fabric included, so I purchased as close to what was included...a cream color rather than the more beige in the image.

What can I say?  I'm a glutton for punishment...and Teresa Wentzler and Peacocks!
