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

I made 31 more key pins, used up all my keys!
Teaser photo-the more pics in my post on the jewelry thread.

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.

156  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!

leatherandlace, I love thesketchbook!

deathbeforedishes,  that cross stitch is amazing! I hope it shows up.

Gaudiknight, those are cute dresses.

Here's a sparkley crown I made using the stiffened lace technique, for my partner in the Givers and Needers swap. She had something like this on her pintrist.

We had the tornado watches and warnings, too. Fingers crossed for all of us!

I just got my package from Koreena, and she spoiled me!
Here's everything dumped out on the bed, with my cat who decided to investigate.

Some closeups. She sent me tons of jewelry to repurpose, lots of lovely beads, findings, wire, chains, pendants,tubes to store beads (which I needed!), screenprinting ink, a set of paintbrushes, two baggies of lovely floss, a wooden tray, glitter, nifty wooden pieces, a pretty bookmark from Korea,and more.

I love the pendants! I need to do something special with the black bird one, it's nifty! And the package of smokey glass beads behind the bird? I have a few like that in my stash already-now I have enough to make something!


Thank you so much, Koreena! I'll have your thank you sent out soon, it's almost done!
