1  a threesome? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MaddLily on: June 20, 2008 06:02:55 PM
So what do you get when you cross two old eyeglass chains and a cufflink?

Okay so you have to add a clasp, and some wire cutters and pliers to the mix, but still it's like they had their own little threesome, no?  Tongue

2  Re: The Banner / Logo critique thread! in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by MaddLily on: June 08, 2008 10:59:25 AM
Need your critique please! Is my banner easy enough to read? (I can't make this font larger) I can't make it product specific because I sell an array of things (navel rings, purses, re-created vintage jewelry, etc). So what do you think? (Oh the picture is a something I drew 10 years ago in highschool, aka I didn't steal it, who'd know I'd have a use for it?).

3  storms, cupcakes, and skulls oh my! (navel rings) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MaddLily on: May 30, 2008 05:17:22 PM
yeah yeah I know, "she has more???" I'm addicted. I admit it, but I am running out of supplies so it may be awhile before you have to see my ugly ol' belly button again!!! Hopefully you'll find at least one a little bit cute.  Cheesy

4  Pricing help, material from grandmother in Get Product and Website Opinions by MaddLily on: May 28, 2008 09:53:16 PM
I need help with pricing these two necklace, or better yet a guideline. I got the beads and pendants (old earrings) from my grandmothers jewelry box. She's passed away so there's no chance in asking her opinion. It took a while converting the jewelry into necklaces, esp. since it is old and delicate (plus old screw on earrings do not want to become necklaces, so they fight back!). So what do you think about pricing? Here are pics, though I'd love a reference to use for future products since I have so much broken stuff from her (she saved everything... it's so much fun!) Thanks!

5  Necklaces made from antique earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MaddLily on: May 28, 2008 09:39:49 PM
So I was going through my grandmother's jewelry box (she's passed away) and found some of her antique clip on earring (the type you screw on).  A lot of them were broken or just not feasible (in other words "ouch!"). So I decided to turn them into necklaces. I used some old beads from other broken necklaces or random beads I've collected... and so far I've created the following. You can see the earrings displayed as the pendant. I had to do a lot of wire cutting and modifying to turn them into charms so although they may look simple I'm quite proud of them. Thanks for looking!

Oh and although they match quite well (at least in my opinion) the earrings and beads are from completely separate sources, I just got very lucky!

6  Unicorn and storm navel ring... added Kuromi navel ring photo in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MaddLily on: May 24, 2008 08:27:50 PM
I'm still on my quest to change the image of belly buttons one outtie (or innie) at a time. I'd like your opinion on the storm cloud esp. (it hangs separately and behind the unicorn). I want the rings to have a touch of whimsy and edginess... do you like it there or do you think I should remove it? Thanks!

I didn't think this warrented a new thread, but I just made this (formally on a pencil), and I love Kuromi so I thought I'd share.

7  Shrinky Dink "P" is for Poodle in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MaddLily on: May 17, 2008 08:40:25 AM
I made this poodle necklace for my daughter, but let's just say this poodle is driving me nuts. When I made it the first time the ink I used smeared when I sealed it. Now it won't photograph right (he really isn't all grainy). Bad dog... bad bad dog!

9  Where's Norman? On my belly button!!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MaddLily on: May 14, 2008 09:40:47 PM
Well I have a surplus of gnome charms and one broken belly ring... and voila, there's Norman to the rescue. I suppose he's guarding me from.... well what do gnomes guard from??? Doesn't matter, I think it would be fun to start making more belly jewelry, I can never find ones I like! So here's Norman, just doin' his thing...

...I don't really know why I keep putting flowers on his head, other then he likes to feel pretty.

Thanks for saying "hi" to Norman!
