After lurking around here a ton I have finally decided to share what little trinkets I've made.
First off, I have taken a great liking to sticking a red hot paperclip in the heads of Army men, and Winnie the Pooh characters.
Winnie was the first, and I love him dearly. As for Eyeore, I'm worried about putting him on a chain, because he's actually rather large. Baby got back. But maybe I will try it anyways.
Necklace! The Army man is too light for such a heavy chain, so I haven't worn it yet.
My most worn toy earrings. I made two more pairs for friends, but I didn't take pictures. Boo.
And the rest of my dollar store fun are either from a kids tool kit, or from a little shopping container. Terribly adorble.
And entirely out of order.
My favorites, they're so cute! But I don't wear them, I only wore them once. As cute as they are, they're kind of big. ;P
Probably my second most worn pair of toy earrings.
They're screwdrivers, btw.
Yes, I'm pretty sure they say Chocolate Nuts.
I also tried my hand at some things slightly more...elegant? Haha, anything is more elegant than kid toys!
But either way, I looove the look of those steampunk items, so I went off looking for gears of some sort. Instead I came across locking washers. I think that's what they're called. Either way, I grabbed a bunch and made some earrings.
To be quickly followed by an assymetrical necklace.
It took forever to get it right, and it's still a tad wonky, but I think it came out well.
So, any comments or critiques would be greatly appreciated. Especially about the necklace. I'm a bit iffy about it, because my friend said it looked strange when worn. I think it came out well, and would look better if I wasn't wearing a POTC shirt.
