1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Really expensive earrings for cheap! on: September 09, 2010 06:18:55 PM
So, I really love this website Moxsie.com
There's a lot of cute stuff, including these ones here:

http://shop.moxsie.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/168x168/5e06319eda06f020e43594a9c230972d/M/a/Made_BroadwayHoopEarrings_1.jpg

...but on Moxsie, they are $58! (Of course, they are GOLD gold, and REALLY nice materials.)

So i decided to make my own:




and an action shot:



They're not quite as professional, plus I hate gold so I used silver (well...cheap silver),  but I really like them Smiley




P.S.- I also came across these earrings on Moxsie

and about freaked out because I had made these about 4 months ago. I feel great about myself now. LOL.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Frustrated craftster in need of ideas of bday gift for boyfriend! on: November 19, 2007 07:27:29 PM
so, uh, i know this is kinda old but my (now ex) boyfriend is in LOVE with Manchester United. So, i went on Ebay and searched Manchester United and came upon a razor cellphone cover with the manchester united logo on it for 22.00. Waaay too expensive. So, i bought a simple red one, found pictures of the logo and transfered it on myself using that rub on print off paper from Lexmarx.

i give out snowman poop every year to my friends. They all love it and think it's cute. Plus, there's the added bonus of being able to eat the marshmallows.


i get those colored mini marshmallows and call them the elf poop

The Grinch poop idea is cute.


This year, I might have to go for "misfit toy" poop. with random jelly bellies.

I have a brand new, top-of-the-line, $3,000 R-13 Clarinet. I would LOVE to spite my old, crappy, plastic yamaha clarinet that I use for marching band by making it into a lamp. They sell clarinets at wal mart now for like, 50 dollars, i'm thinking about using one of those. It would be so cool to have one of every instrument Smiley

oooh, it looks very ice-princess-y. i would feel so evil looking in it (in the good way). I'd totally love to practice my evil laughter into this. Beautifully made!

I am positively in love with this Smiley I can just imagine myself wearing this out clubbing with a low cut black top and dark jeans (that is, if i were old enough to go clubbing lol)


i love love love love love


If my parents were willing to let me deface some coins, i'd totally copy


Ps. the shape of it is beautiful

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this looks, it's so awesome. I'm a little iffy on the hoof part, but i think it's cool that you keep a tin of them on your desk Smiley
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrinky dinks really are magic! on: June 25, 2007 10:23:28 AM
After visiting this forum for awhile and seeing how amazing people's shrinky dink (shrink plastic) pendants were coming out, i decided to give it a try! It was only like 4.50 for a package of 12 at Michaels. The first ones didn't look very good because i used sharpies, and i didn't quite like the color, but i tried colored pencil and i LOVED the colors. It's so fun to watch them shrink and curl up and then uncurl!!!! Just don't be dumb like me and pick it up when it gets out of the oven  Undecided Cheesy  I was just really excited to touch it. anyway, here they are, sorry about the crappy pictures. I can't take pictures to save my life.

*NOTE* Since i can't draw worth beans, most of these were traced; some designs i even found on this website and on etsy. If it is your design, PLEASE tell me!!! I WOULD LOVE TO CREDIT YOU!!!!!


This is the first one, which i wasn't very happy with the color. They're two swallows and the thing around the heart says "Hope." It was a design from a pirates of the carribean shirt i have.


This is my sad cupcake. I think the brown is a bit too dark, but other than that, i love it


Def. one of my favorites, my happy ice cream cone!!!


My hungry hungry hippos Smiley


Rainbow earrings (with star hole punch instead of a circle because i'm cool like that)


A, uh...cow spot? pendant. I tried to trace the rainbow i had just drawn, but realized it wouldn't fit, so i filled it in and made other blobs in the area and it turned into cow spots.


My turtle. I love using the wavy scissors Smiley


Davey Jones...well, not really. It was an octopus that lacked something, so i added the black heart in the middle (hahaha, Davey doesn't have a heart, get it?) And wrote "Davey Jones" on the bottom.


More hungry hippos i made, with the other ones, being happy (I want to put them on earrings with a white ball bead above it, so it looks like the balls they eat Smiley )


My happy tomato (My town puts on a tomato festival every year, so i am ALWAYS looking for cute things to sell there that go along with the theme. I would love if you had any ideas Smiley )


What shrinky dink collection would be complete without a Ron Weasley Potter Puff???


My uber-cool spiderman that took me forever to trace and cut out


I am seeing wicked TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!! And my mommy made me a Glinda dress, so i needed a pendant to wear Smiley I AM SO EXCITED!!! IT's my favoritest musical ever (i'll post pictures of the dress after tomorrow)

AND FINALLY, my favorite of....well, ever.

My little mermaid. I swear, this was one of the hardest things i've ever had to trace, besides the spiderman. It's a little big, but i love big jewelry. Right now, i just have it on a chain because i wanted to wear it right away with my little mermaid tshirts that i bought at hot topic (it's my favorite movie, if you can't tell). I want to make earrings that are flounder and sebastian (because all the little mermaid jewelry i have is so...little girly) and add embellishments to the necklace.


Soooooo, whatcha think??? Any pointers?Huh? I'm getting a lot better as i go on, especially with taking them out and flattening them. And this is the first time I've ever used the white colored pencil in my life Smiley Now i know what it's for lol.


Wellll, thanks for looking, more to come later. I'm making my boyfriend an X-box controller charm, and a guitar hero charm and some family guy charms. And i want to make him a charm from his favorite you tube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGvw6WpHSF4  it's from robot chicken, it's a giraffe in quicksand that goes through the 5 stages of death) but i have no clue how to get a screen shot to trace the giraffe... any help?
