421  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bottle cap earrings on: July 11, 2004 10:09:44 PM
I just got some vintage bottle caps that i'd ordered from my favorite supply website (www.mantofev.com) and made some pretty cool earrings....go here: http://tinypic.com/o9rc  to see them. this is the link, i'm not sure how to insert the picture into the message. sorry. There's kinda a glare but you'll get the idea.

all i did was hammer a small nail hole into the outer edge of the cap. these caps were already sort of "opened." when i use other caps, i usually use a pliers to pull each little "fold" or crimp out a little to sort of open the bottle cap up a little more...just me, i think they look better like that.

also, a quick little plug, or shout-out if you will...i'm selling some on ebay, if you're interested.  Grin

I love these....i make my own too, and there are so many kinds of guitar picks out there, so there is so much you can do!
i also heat a needle to poke the hole into the pick, i hadn't thought of using an actual flame, i just rest the point of the needle on my hot glue gun--gets it hot, but it won't burn me, or totally ruin my needle.

 this is a link to one of my favorite pairs i've made. (I'm not sure how to insert the picture into the message--i'm slow with computers).


423  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / starting an online shop--do you need a business lisence? on: July 07, 2004 12:52:44 PM
so, i was thinking of possibly starting an online shop--selling craft supplies, and some of my own handi-work--
and my friend said to me, "do you need a business lisence for that?" and well, i have no clue.
do i?

also, any good recommendations on books or sites that would help when starting your own online store? (sorry if this has been posted).
424  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Baseball Necklaces....anyone know how to make one? on: July 04, 2004 11:39:09 PM
So, this guy that always comes into my work wears this awesome necklace made from a baseball, like the leather on the ball is cut along the stitches, making the necklace...i can't really explain it well, but search on ebay for baseball necklace and you'll see what i mean. (i wasn't sure about posting a link to someones ebay auction).

anyway, i also saw that someone on ebay was selling the instructions for $20, which i am so not going to pay, so i figured i'd check with all you crafty people first.

thanks, have a crafty day, bekki

according to the list on this site: http://www.tsa.gov/public/display?theme=177 knitting and crochet needles are ok in carry on or checked luggage.  You might want to print that list, and also go to the site for your airline and do the same for their list.  I've flown with my knitting tons of times and never had any problems.  Don't try to bring scissors with pointed tips, or really pointy stitch holders, etc in your carry on - throw those in your checked luggage.  As long as there's a fair amount of actual knitting on your needles, I don't think you'll have any problem.


ya know, i saw that (b/c i called TSA then went to their site) too, and was thinking the same thing about printing it out.  i hadn't thought about the fact that as long as i have a lot going on the needles, they shouldn't make such an issue outta it.

thanks so much for all your help!! Cheesy
427  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Help! please recommend good YS to a traveler.... on: May 04, 2004 01:03:48 PM
Hello!!
This is my first post on these boards, hooray! i live in honolulu, hi and am taking a vacation next week to phoenix (tempe, really). my problem is that i wanna knit on the plane and just called TSA and i can't bring my aluminum needles on board. Sad
 anyway, knitting isn't very popular here, so finding needles that aren't metal/aluminum is nearly impossible (yes, i have called every craft store on the island).
i was wondering if any knittters in the Phoenix area could recommend a good yarn/knitting store. I really want to get bamboo, wood, or even plastic knitting needles....so i can at least knit on my plane ride home.

Please help!!!
Thanks, and aloha, Bekki
