331  Aqua Metal and Grey Plastic jewellry sets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by gala_apples on: December 26, 2010 03:12:17 PM
I always make jewelry for my aunt and cousin for Christmas, it's light to mail to Ontario, and they actually appreciate it, unlike the relatives here.

My cousin has a very sedate style, totally earthy grainy hippie combined with business lady professional. So when I saw this grey loopy charm I knew it would work for her.

My aunt's style is a lot more Caribbean, brighter and shinier colours. This was a huge and tacky earring rescued and turned into a necklace. The earrings match better in real life.

I got clockwork orange vocabulary inchies from strawberryshortcake. They're going on my dystopia art wall as soon as I decide on a way to frame them.  Cheesy

I'm glad you like them, elocinnicole! I feel like I don't get to pull out my leather stuff often enough. If anyone else wants a pair, I can easily whip up another set.  Smiley

I recieved from Nilmerg. She claimed me for clouds pillowcases, and then set me other things from my list <3

She sent me multiple colours of paper:

And a few scraps of wrapping paper:

And then my pillowcases. I got two! I love the details (like the multi-shaded buttons, and the stripe of darker blue. I really love the matching mismatch style, hence going for a different types of clouds bed set in the first place, so Nilmerg, this look was great!)

suereal's package has restored my faith in humanity. THAT'S how awesome is.

It came with a bunch of extras:

And I neglected to take a picture of the wrapping, but it was all wrapped up and awesome looking in key stamped paper. Which, as it turns out, is now MY STAMP!

I got a leather coin purse, she says it's her first time working with the medium but there's no way you can tell.

Apparently this was a fluke, she just started tying knots. But I LOVE IT. It's so awesome and industrial looking... reminds me of ninth grade and making bracelets that were nails and screws tied together. I cannot wait to wear this to the bar.

And then the peice da resistance! Sorry for the huge picture, but the more detail you get of it the better. Suereal must have read somewhere that I like big pendants, because this thing is delightfully huge. <3

And then, as if that wasn't enough, she went all modern. She said she'd been stalking my other swaps and noticed I love zombies, and make this. I literally laughed out loud when I unwrapped it. It's freakin hilarious, and awesome.

Thank you for the bloody amazing package. I thought I was ready to send out, sooo not happening now.

I got an eyespy bag from mxer145. Apparently it's good for distracting all ages, when I showed my mom she spent the next twenty minutes trying to shuffle the insides around to see it all.

It's filled with beads instead of sand/seeds/other stuff I've seen being used. It's all pretty and blue!

Details of swap:


My Chemical Romance created a CD called Danger Days; the Fabulous Lives Of the Killjoys, but they did more than that. They've created personas that not only LARP through youtube videos, but write to each other on Twitter. Their music videos are serial and tell a story of underdogs fighting against a cold, dystopian post-natural disaster world in 2019. Art and colour and music are illegal, the Killjoys fight this by being as bright and artistic as they can (also they have blasters to fight the Draculoids that come to assimilate them). They've asked that their audience roleplay as their own personas in the universe, and most of us have been happy to join in.

Some resources for this universe:
