1  Re: Aleene's paper glaze in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Circlesofstone on: October 23, 2011 12:33:41 PM
I've used Aleene's paper glaze for sealing my bottlecaps. I don't know how waterproof they are, resin would be best for that. I've heard of people sealing their images with Modge Podge or even clear packing tape before using a glaze.

Here is a picture of one of my bottlecaps where I used the Aleene's paper glaze:

2  Steampunk Propeller Ring and Alice in Wonderland Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Circlesofstone on: May 28, 2011 11:14:18 AM
Here are two of my latest creations. The first is an antiqued brass steampunk propeller ring. I finally found the right components so the propeller on the ring can still spin!



This next piece is my nod to Alice in Wonderland. I hand stamped the copper pendant, then antiqued it with Liver of Sulfur and added the tiny glass vial "elixir".

I've shared a few of my winged pins before, but decided to make a series of them. Here are some of my latest.

Antiqued gold wings with antiqued pewter finish skull and crossbones for the Airship Pirate in you:



Antiqued gold wings with Victorian styled cameo and black wings with a skeleton cameo for that undead look:



Here are a few more that I believe I've shared in the past, but decided to put all in one post.

Airship Captain winged balloon pin:



Time Flies winged pin:




I hope you like them, let me know what you think!

4  May the Force be with You! - Latin Edition in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Circlesofstone on: May 06, 2011 05:59:20 AM
Since May 4th was Star Wars Day - "May the Fourth be with you", I decided to unleash my inner geek and create this keychain to honor the day. I distressed, stamped, and antiqued the copper then riveted copper and brass gears to it. The latin phrase says, "May the Force be with you".

5  Carpe Omnia "Seize Everything" in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Circlesofstone on: April 13, 2011 10:01:32 AM
Forget seizing the day, you know deep down that secret pirate in you really wants to "Seize Everything"! For this necklace I hand stamped and antiqued a copper pendant then added a bone skull dangle and hung it on a black leather cord.

6  Mixed Metal Victorian Styled Clock Brooch in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Circlesofstone on: April 13, 2011 09:51:06 AM
I've always loved mixing my metals, even before it was the "in" thing. Here is my version of a Victorian lady's brooch.

7  New additions to my tiny bottle necklaces in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Circlesofstone on: April 09, 2011 12:53:56 PM
I'm always trying to think of something to put in those tiny bottles. So here are two new additions to my collection. The first one has tiny shells and a sand dollar dangle. I call this one "Just Beachy"!



This next one is inspired by the rock opera musical film: Repo! The Genetic Opera.



Any Zydrate fans out there?

8  Victorian Themed in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Circlesofstone on: March 10, 2011 09:40:32 AM
Ok, maybe not super Victorian but this little guy makes me smile. I decided to modify a velveteen choker so I could hang him from it. The velveteen was fairly thick so I placed an eyelet in it to protect the hole so I could dangle him on the ribbon.



I really loved the look of this cameo, it wasn't the typical black and white, but had a deep brown background and looked antiqued. This reminds me of the old sepia tone photographs. I found a nice antiqued gold setting and created a light tan twisted cord necklace for it.



When I found these components I decided to create a brooch. Just takes me back to another era.



I hope you enjoy them!

Here is a pair of earrings I made out of electronic resistors!



Ok these aren't electronic, but along the same line since they are made from hardware (hex nuts, rubber O rings, lock nuts).

10  Stamped Copper Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Circlesofstone on: February 09, 2011 07:39:12 AM
I'm having fun working with some copper blanks and metal stamps. For these two pairs of earrings I stamped the copper, then antiqued it with liver of sulfur. I then drilled the holes so I could hang them from the earwires.






Let me know what you think!
