Small project, made some bangles for fun.
And yes, the hearts are nifty! I can see giving one to someone to carry in their pocket,and they'd always have a hug from you.

123  New bracelets from old! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: September 06, 2013 09:23:01 AM
I saw something similar on the web,don't know where anymore. So I took the idea and ran with it.
Old metal  bangles,embroidery floss,glue,jump rings, and charms and beads.

I ran a small amount of E6000 down the top of the bracelet,only about an inch at a time. At the beginning, I also put a small dab under the bracelet. I'm sure any kind of glue would work for this. I started tightly wrapping embroidery floss around it. This is truly ancient floss! I also put a dab of glue underneath at the very end. Then, lots of jump rings. Some loose,some smushed on tightly. Then, jump rings with charms or odd beads. I wanted to limit how much they would slide around to half or a third of the bracelet. So, at the ends it was jump ring around the bracelet, jump ring with bead through the first jump ring, smush it tight with pliers so it'd stay put, do the same thing farther down, loose rings and more rings with bits and bobs loose in between them to slide around. This would look better with lots more jump rings, I may add more later. And of course you can skip the smushing bit and let them all slide freely.
Easy, used up odd leftover bits.

126  Pearl jewelry covered mirror-Pic Heavy in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: September 02, 2013 11:30:27 AM
Started as a 1.00 mirror from Dollar Tree! Painted the brown cardboard frame white,which made it look pink. Then old jewelry and beads from friends,family,craftster members, and thrift stores.

Took pics outside for the light. It's hard to take pics of mirrors without getting yourself in the reflection!





Edit-oops, I meant to put this in reconstructed!

128  Ray Gun Commision in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: August 22, 2013 01:31:21 PM
So, I had a friend pay me to make her a raygun to go with her costume. She wanted it to still work, and yes, it will still fire foam darts. Paint,sealer, doodads. An old capacitor attached to a copper coil from an old keyboard, the tip from an ink pin, broken jewelry, odd metal bits,screws,beads,gear from same keyboard, ect!

129  More jewelry covered mirrors-pic heavy! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: August 22, 2013 01:17:38 PM
I picked up three matching mirrors from Goodwill for three dollars each. These had a very narrow space to fill in with shinies,so it was...interesting to work on! Odd earrings, small pins, rhinestones, loose beads, random shinies. Glued down with good old E600. It needed a little clear sealer, so I carefully brushed on some Ailene's Jewelry Pendant Gel, which was perfect. They can hang vertically or horizontally. Which reminds me-next time affix picture hangers to the back *before* I start work. These are for a December art fair.

Yay  Goodwill and scrounging junk jewelry from my family!

Small, silly project. Kiddo needed flip flops. I bought a pair at the Dollar store for a buck. Annnd had just the thing in my craft stash to fancy them up.


Really, what can't be improved by googly eyes? I warned her they'd probably start falling off when she wears them, despite how well they're glued down. But I was told that was fine, then they'd be zombie flip flops.
My kid is weird.  Grin
