21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: The Gorgeous Choker Swap Gallery on: July 25, 2008 10:58:28 AM
ok, WHEW I'm so glad you like it! I was worried that it would be too weird or out there or...you know, whatever. anxiety =) (and thanks, everyone!)

It's actually made of leather. I cut all the pieces and then painted them with a couple coats of resin, because I wanted to stiffen the leather. I realized later that I'd basically "made" vinyl and kinda kicked myself for that. =)

so yes, it's flexible/shapes/bends a little, but it's also stiffer than just plain leather. I really did make vinyl. Still feeling silly about that ...

can't WAIT to see what you made, maehem! =) Oh, and I have some other pics of the necklace - at least one is on my blog, if you want to see:

yaaaaay! I'm so glad you like it!

I'm finally just about settled in my new place, can't wait to get back on track with my sewing goals for the summer...I wonder if anthro has posted their aug catalogue online yet  - time to shop for inspiration! Wink

woo! sent maehem's choker today. I have pictures for the gallery in case she has any trouble taking some. I can't wait for it to get there - mostly because I'm really insecure about it and I can't deal with the waiting and worrying.

argh. hope you like it, maehem!!

I'm so excited on the progress of fleurs choker, it's something I have never played with before, but I love it! I feel like it's "too simple" though

hahaha! I'm in the exact same position with yours: something I've never tried before, worried it's too simple. We have been frighteningly well-matched.

oh well done Smiley I am inserting a new rule here, the organiser gets to see a pic of the choker before sending ... ahem... for reasons of artistry and pure curiosity. No, just kidding, but do remember to take pictures of it before you send.

I actually really like this idea! But that's probably because I'm insecure and I always worry that I didn't make something good enough - it'll be nice to have feedback beforehand!

we haven't totally settled into the new place yet, but I put my choker pieces and materials at the top of a box so I could find it easily and I'm working on it anyway - a girl's got to keep her priorities straight! =)

congrats! I can't work on mine now because we have to UNPACK before I can find my things again ... argh, I'm impatient...

Ack! You guys are making me nervous. I think mine is turning out well, but it is one of those things where what I do doesn't seem as interesting as what other people are doing because I have my creativity and not someone elses. That doesn't even make sense. It's a "the grass is always greener" thing.

It makes perfect sense - I feel this way about your dyeing skills, lady! =)

maehem - I noticed! In fact, I have a (new) idea. It's not something I've ever tried to do before, so we will see how it goes, but it feels like one of those REALLY good ideas. If it works, I might have to try something similar for myself, I'm that excited about it. wooo!!

I'm actually so excited that I'm going to dig through my packed boxes tonight to find the materials I want to work with (this is me, UNPACKING a day and a half before the moving truck comes, hahaha)  but I really want to get started early, because it might end up being a really time-consuming process.

keep me posted re: two. Maybe you and I can BOTH double-dose...
