A very simple necklace with beads that are prettier than the pic shows here.
And two raygun shadowboxes here.

102  A couple of raygun shadowboxes in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: October 26, 2013 01:29:28 PM
I needed a break from making mirrors, so whipped up a couple of these.  Grin I love buying cheap shadowboxes at the thrift store to take apart!

Can't really see any detail here, but there's metal bits added for a trigger, a metal cap on the nozzle, and a green brad at the end. Silver, white,and purple paint on a tiny water pistol from a pack of party favors, scrapbook paper, and a thrift store frame, and the word 'Imagine'. Most of my shadowboxes are 'in case of airship pirates/space pirates break glass, but I wanted to make a few different ones.

Second shadowbox! An old earring, a tiny key, a copper coil, the green bulb is from electronic innards, a disc, a pointy bit of plastic. Scrapbook paper and thrift store frame. The label-printed, cutout,glued on cardboard,wrapped in some twisted thin yarn from a tassel. The green leaves? From a sheet of temporary tattoos.

103  Something simple in Beads: Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: October 26, 2013 01:17:03 PM
I bought a humongous pair of hoop earrings just for the pretty iridescent beads. Took them apart,strung them on a thin gold chain.

batteries acquired! There  were 3 bags chock full of goodies!

First bad, tons of beads. Including some very nifty hand made pottery ones!

Second bag, supplies! Spools of wire,lots of chain,charms,jump rings and other findings,ect.

Third bag, jewelry! Lots of necklaces,earrings,ect. This pic came out blurry, but this is nifty stuff.

Thank you again, tendstowardschaos. I feel very spoiled, and it's exciting thinking of what to make using my new supplies.

Oh,what a pretty shawl!

Okay, I made two more mirrors, what a shock. Grin And another small compact. And two ring holders. Which I messed up,but I'm using them anyway.

106  Black & brown mirrors,and how not to make ring holders in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 21, 2013 01:26:51 PM
Mirrors! Found a brown ceramic plate/tray,fit an octagonal mirror inside,and beads in the corners.

I think that was worth fifty cents, don't you?

Then,I bought a frame on clearance for 2.50 at Dollar General. Removed the glass. The fancy embossed mat was a dark grey plastic. Lots of rub n'buff, then paint, then sealer.

More beads from the multistrand necklace I used in the blue mirroe.

The mirror is one of these, frame painted black. Locker mirror,one dollar.

And another compact. I should have just used the swan and left the background black.

So, I picked up some small frames from the thrift store to make ring holders. Found the perfect scrapbook paper for each of them,was smug at how easy they went together. The little ceramic frame I promptly dropped the second I finished it, and cracked the frame in four places. The green frame-I brushed sealer over the paper,since it'd be going by the sink. The paper promptly buckled. I tried to smooth it back down right away, and tore a hunk off. That's why there's a flat gold bead there.

Ah,well. One's in the bathroom,the other in the kitchen. Next time will be better!

I cut up one of the college brochures and made a pair of paper bead earrings. I'd tried making beads from the skinny strips before, and oh,they were lumpy! So I thought I'd try a tube bead this time. They're larger than I like to wear,and the seams aren't great, but it's practice! I put a scrap of scrapbook paper on the outside.

Yep, more mirrors. A vanity mirror and a couple of compacts this time. I also have a few other projects half done-and some of them aren't even mirrors! O.o

110  Not another hanging mirror... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 15, 2013 09:38:32 PM
This time it's a vanity mirror and two compacts.
I bought the red and silver vanity mirror at the thrift store. The mirror itself swivels in the  frame,each side is  a different magnification. One side of the frame is covered with small beads. A tiny piece left from a pearly necklace I'd used on another project around the 'neck', a string of red beads around the base. And on the frame, six crystal drops that had been in my jewelry stash forever! They originally adorned a huge,gaudy pair of earrings. Brushed some clear sealer over the beading, and the red glass.

You can't tell from this,but the drops have a nice iridescent sheen.

A little fuzzy,but you get the idea.Larger rhinestones on the middle at each side,and left plain on the back.

The base.

And the two compacts.

An earring,some chain,rhinestones,silver and clear glitter beads, and clear jewelry sealer on the black one. A green heart brooch,paint, gold glitter beads and a few larger beads, and more sealer on the gray one. Mirrored compacts 1.00 each from Dollar Tree, everything else from stash.
