Here's some of the things I've been making. Soon to be selling them on-line, but as you can see pictures are not the greatest. Any suggestions?
So here we have a pic of my bed.....the head of it. Yes it's a canopy and I love it. I've run out of room to put mostly anything in my room so luckily the suncatchers hang from the top bar of the canopy. They are against the wall but they are all fine there. Lighting stinks I know, but I couldn't tinker with the much without messing up the colors.
This is one of the 5 pink and gold hangy things I've made..... I have alot of pink and gold, what can I say I'm a gold girl. The little heart there isn't crystal just a glass bead, but I thought it was pretty.
This one is just blue and silver. The star on the end is glass, I believe...? But still very pretty and shiny!
This one took me a long time to complete. Well the making part wasn't that hard for me, it was the waiting for the craft store to get a new shipment in of the red snake. I have only 4 more to do whatever with. I do have plans for them but if something else nags at my head I'll use them for that!
This tiny one reminds me of the fairies from Tinker Bell. This little pink one has a small spray of sea beads coming from the top, all colored white, clearish, and pink. The middle whitish circle bead is glass. I think it's perfect for a new baby girl. Like a coming home persent.
This little guy is made from sea beads, and a glass heart that my mother saw at the craft store. It was made as I thought about it. Just bend wire this way, and oh looks good like this. Maybe I could do this...Yes. The very first one I made too.... now a small blip in the sea of them hanging above me on my bed.
This one is the second one I've made with a spray of sea beads on it. My aunt saw the first one I ever made and she stole it from me.... So this one is pink and purple....just the same pink heart from the other one. I found I have about 10 of the hearts...?!? At the bottem of this one there are three swirls of purple wire. All hand twisted by me. It hurts the fingers but it looks very nice.
Now this guy, red and silver with white highlights, is just another way to do a spray with beads. The large white circle is the same one in the middle of the tiny baby pink one. This one is the last one I've made in a while, sad to say.
So that's a basic run down of my hangy things... a.k.a. SunCatchers. I've done alot of crafting with the beads, wires, chains, and crystals. Granted most of the larger beads are not crystals, the tinier ones are real crystals mixed in with some run of the mill glass beads. I've gotten into the color wires, and racking my brain thinking of new and different things to do with it all. So thanks for taking a peek at all this. And pay no attention to the dates on the pics here, they were taken just hours ago. My camera isn't set to the right time.
