Display and chokers! The green one is an older one, the others new. Bought the white crochet from the craft store-they were too big for bracelets and too small for chokers. They came with the fabric ends encased in ribbon clips, and a little bit of silver chain and a clasp. I added more chain to make them choker size, and put pendants on each one. Fan, heart, mother of pearl bead with dangle, odd fancy silver dangly earrings. At the last minute I realized I had no display. Took an old stretch velvet pullover, cut off the sleeve. Pulled it over a roll of paper towels. Knotted each end, stuffed them inside. Had a couple of ceramic drawer pulls I bought on clearance for 50 cents, pushed those in to make sure the sleeve ends stayed tucked inside and to make it look neater. I didn't even have to use pins to hold the chokers in place-the paper towel roll compressed a bit when I fastened the chokers, and uncompressed after, if that makes sense.

Oh, nifty! I bet those are comfy undies! Cute shirt, too. And I bet your nieces are thrilled with the doll clothes. The Thingamabob is cool-I like the technical name. Grin The ribbon and sparkly ornaments are a nice touch on the cross stitch.

Okay, I made some circuit board and transistor jewelry. Post here.

153  geeky circuit board jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: March 30, 2013 12:20:49 PM
Not the best pics, my camera is dying! Probably need to replace it soon.
Bought a few baggies of the rings at the thrift store. Circuit board from dead electronics my nephew gave me. The coppery foil printed circuit board had to be used! Only a little of that, sigh. Long brass piece was from a key ring, the black/green/brass beads don't show up well in this pic. The big pendant has a wash of gold on it-I made a similar one earlier.
 
Three pins from transistors. Or capacitors? Something!

Blurry picture of pins/brooches. Beads, rhinestones, brass flowers, ect.

Another pendant shot. Still need to put them on chains, cord, or ribbon.

kaz, I like that! It's a nifty piece of art.

I made 31 more key pins, used up all my keys!

155  31 key brooches, used up my stash! Pic heavy in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: March 17, 2013 04:42:27 PM
I have used up all my keys, had to buy pin backs and more e6000, and even some charm embellishments on sale from the craft store because my supply of suitable ones got low. Old keys, new embellishments, old jewelry, dollar  jewelry for filigree, bead stash. For my sale table at the con in a couple of weeks.






and obligatory group shot.

Sera, keeping you in my thoughts. (hugs). I hope things take a turn for the better soon!
Avesthel, nifty drawing!
katara, that quilling is lovely!

I just turned some of my key and junk jewelry stash into pins. Off to the craft store tomorrow to buy pin backs!

Not crazy about the red topped and orange topped ones, but I was experimenting.

So I went through my stash of keys and my stash of junk jewelry and made some pins. Still have a lot more to make! Most of the keys were ordinary old housekeys, or big clunky car keys-they'd been in the lost and found at work for several months and were going to be thrown away. So, I felt free to experiment. I still need to put pin backs on them, hitting the craft store after work tomorrow.

Obligatory group shot

I'm not crazy about the big one on the far left, with the red/gold fabric top and gold beads. Or the orange one in the middle, but I was determined to try and use the clunky odd orange earring!

Found a small black desk clock with the battery cover missing at the Goodwill, and painted it up. With DH's glasses for size comparison.


Posted here, with a few more pictures.

159  2.00 desk clock steampunked up in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: March 07, 2013 10:32:26 AM
So I found a plain black desk clock at the Goodwill this week. The cover over the battery compartment was missing, but hey, 2.00.
The front, back, top and bottom I used Old Brass color. The narrow sides are metallic gold, metallic copper, and the last wider side piece in metallic rust. Put a couple of layers of triple thick glaze over it. Took four lock washers and painted them gold, then glued them on the corners and glazed them. For the back, I cut out a circle of black plastic from a broken dvd case, painted and glazed it to match, and attached tiny strips of velcro to keep it in place, yet still have it removable for battery access. Not an ideal fix, but it'll do.

Pictures! Leather and Lace had her sewing machine break, and still sewed amazing things!

A lovely bag!

And a look at the lining.

And a sewn robot! Her name is Gidget, and she belonged to an Esmerelda-it says so on her tag! Nosy kitty had to get in the picture.

Here's her tag, and a look at one of the copper coils on the side.

And the key on the back of her head.

here's the pretty card that was in the box, and lamp oil and lamp oil color.

Unfortunately the lamp didn't make it.  Cry She hollowed out a light bulb, painted designs on it in copper, found a nice metal piece to be the base for it, and even put a gear over the opening.


Leather and Lace spoiled me rotten! She's such a talented craftster. Thanks for being my partner!
