1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Such an awesome Halloween costume! on: September 14, 2006 08:07:04 PM
fdsajkl;ewfy

I just decided to post this, like, right now.
ANYWAyyyyy...
This was my Halloween costume from 2005.
It's pretty amazing.

Try and guess what I was!


Yeahhh... that's me... the costume makes me look really fat... and I kinda colored my face with eyeliner because we didn't have any face paint or anything... hmmm...


Roadkill.


BLOODY roadkill. Yummm.

Uhhhh... that's basically it.
Don't think I'm a loser because I was a raccoon for Halloween my freshman year of high school!
Maybe I shouldn't have said that...
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I like necklaces, and you should, too. on: July 23, 2006 11:32:13 AM
I've been in a high school jewelry class for one semester, and these are the fruits of my labor.
They all took me about 15 million tries each to make them look acceptable.
Hey, they got me an A!


This is my "random objects" necklace. It was inspired by a necklace being sold at Urban Outfitters a while back. There used to be a bone button and a broomstick that was next to Harry, but they both fell off the first time I wore it. (I wore it straight out of the classroom, so I guess I had that coming.)


This is, obviously, my rainbow necklace. The pendant was a complete stroke of genius; I had fired on the colors to make the rainbow without drilling a hole in the sheet metal first, which means I would have cracked the glass if I had tried to drill a hole in it. I basically glued it to a larger piece of copper with a hole in it. My teacher never noticed.


First necklace I have ever made, and by far the crappiest. I was stupid enough to try and solder together the links in the chain, frying them to the point where they were not recognizable. I tried to make the links all a nice oval shape, but that obviously didn't work, either. The silver that you see now is two weekends' worth of sitting in a "pickle bath". I have no idea what that really is, I hope yall know what I'm talking about. I made the clasp that way because I didn't want to solder the chain again.


This is my emo necklace. It has the rainbow of emotions on it. You can't really see the red "angry" face, but it's okay, you can use your imagination. The orange guy is the most awkward one; I couldn't think of an emotion for him. Since this was finished the day before finals, the faces are drawn on with thin Sharpie. Whatever, it's pretty cute.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / do you make glass beads? PLEASE HELP ME on: July 10, 2006 12:34:23 PM

cool it down without it cracking


i'm so horrid at this, and i'm in a jewelry class at my school.

could someone please help me?
my teacher's weird
