Here's what I sent shylitlegoddess for an angel package.  Smiley
I did lots of stalking *cackle* and found out some really neat things about her...buhaha... Wink

I beaded a pillow as a spider web & then made a lil dangly spider for it (I didn't make the pillow Sad, I just beaded it)






I made her a little box that is supposed to look like an itty bitty trunk.
She wanted a box or Altoid tin.  It used to be a plain box...it's full of stuff I thought she would like...little gemstones, feathers, a dragonfly, some other stuff Wink


I've never used resin, but I sure have melted some beads!  So I melted some clear beads & encapsulated a spider (a rhinestone spider...Wink) for a keychain.


A little drawstring pouch...


A fork bracelet (she had one Wisted) with some amethyst cause she like purrrrple!  Smiley




Some glass bead & Swarovski crystal earrings...


Another box, but much bigger.  It was a plain wood box as well.
I dremelled the lid to make a fairy-like design, used watercolor pencils to add a bit of color, then sealed it all in.  I lined it with her pouch fabric and add some other little embellishments.
The inside image is from http://www.designsbywillow.com/  It's called "Spring's Arrival." 






A goddess necklace...


A spider slave bracelet/ring...




Her box fulla goodies...

Whoa!!  All of that stuff is amazing!  That encapsulated spider is just to die for!  What a super duper angel package!

I've seen those fork bracelets before.  Are they really forks?  For real?  So beautiful!

Thanks guys!

Yeah, they are real forks *looks at blisters on hands*  Yep, real.  LOL!  Just kidding... Wink  I was smart about halfway through and put gloves on.  Forks sure fight back.  I had no idea...  Cheesy

Sweets4ever!!! You totally outdid yourself! Amazing stuff! So what did you use to bend/mold the fork, anyway?

Sorry you had to wait so long for your package, shylitlegoddess, but whoa! Looks like it was worth the wait!!

And yay! This swap is officially over! (Do I hear a bell tolling or something?)

That whole package is absolutely beautiful.  And I cracked up over the humility:  "(I didn't make the pillow Sad, I just beaded it)"

JUST breaded it?  With "only" 157,000 little beads, I suppose.  You crack me up.

*laugh*  I didn't look at it that way!  That is so funny...tee hee!

Sweets4ever!!! You totally outdid yourself! Amazing stuff! So what did you use to bend/mold the fork, anyway?

I used a hammer to completely flatten the bugger first.  Then I used a piece of copper tubing and pliers to bend, bend, bend.  When I was done I used a dremel to smooth out any sharp edges and nicks so she wouldn't get snagged anywhere.  The amethyst is under a prong, but there's E6000 under it and on the underside of the prong to secure it.
