111  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Hi-Ho Cherrio necklace and a couple of pendants... on: October 17, 2004 05:40:33 PM
for the cherries i heated up a fat needle and kinda made a lil hole to start the eyelet screws in...they were pretty easy to screw in place though

as for the pendants...
1) i cut out the picture i liked
2) then i cut out a lil piece of plastic just a tiny bit bigger than the picture (the plastic i used was one of those things you keep your pictures in in a wallet...thats the only way i can explain it  Undecided)
3) for stability and so you wont burn the picture, i cut out and put a piece of metal behind it....(there was this piece of metal laying on my dads work table, i think its for on the roof....i dunno, it was just thin enough for me to use). i bet if you wanted too...haha...you could just use a piece of a pop can
4) then i put copper foiling around it and smoothed it down (i used a quarter Smiley )
5) then i brushed some flux on (got that out of my moms stained glass box) and then i soldered ( is that how you put it?) the front, back, and sides...
6) wiped whatever flux was left on it...

and voila...you can make one yourself....if you can understand anything i just said...

113  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hi-Ho Cherrio necklace and a couple of pendants... on: October 16, 2004 07:18:05 PM
i was really bored the other day...and i had this stuff lying around just begging me to make something out of it...so i did Smiley



I used the Hi-Ho Cherrio pieces out of the game and some eyelet screws for the necklace and i got the pictures on the pendants out of a Victorian Trading Co. catalog . if you want details about how i made them just ask.

115  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / diy patches on: October 09, 2004 04:02:04 PM
i would like to make my own patches by embroidering such-and-such picture on cloth....but i was wondering what people thought i should line the back with...so that theyre a bit sturdier, or maybe what type of cloth i should use thats a bit thicker...any ideas would be appreciated Smiley

yea it was silver, it was one i just grabbed out of my moms kitchen drawer when she wasnt looking  Wink   oh and i didnt use any heat when i was bending it, i suppose you could...
120  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / fork bracelete on: June 24, 2004 03:35:48 PM


I finally got a fork to bend properly, wasnt too hard really...sorry that the photo quality is crappy, just took it with my webcam  Cheesy

Just for anyone who would like to know how i did it...
First i pounded the fork prongs flat with a hammer...
Then i put the fork in a vice to hold it steady (made it a WHOLE lot easier to bend)...
Then i just used needle-nose pliers to bend the prongs into curls, starting from the tip and working my way down so as to not break them.
