Ok...here are the pics of the pieces I made for Anya Kase. (hope your camera turns up in your luggage or something...)

After 3 days of trying to weave a black beaded gothy choker for Anya Kase, I determined that was not what I was meant to do...and so went with what I know.

Soldered glass pendant on funky strings of beads with matching earrings:

It is reversible...detail side 1...and it's not wonky...just the angle of photo:

detail side 2:


And then the extra piece...resin charms with brushed metal stars & resin soldered to wire frame with matchy match earrings:


What a relief to know that they do fit nicely! Wink They were wicked fun to make & are one of a kind!

Coolest swap ever....

How adorable is Coco-mac's red lace choker and so different to the silver blue one too, and you brought sweets!

ClaraOHara's are very cute too and modern, I think the bitten apple is fun and it's not surprising how much attention it's getting.

Anya Kase Rocks! Not only did she have 2 partners...but she also made each of us 2 chokers!!!  Grin Somebody give that girl an award or something!

You said it, Anya kase produced such variations and the pink swirled one is lush, it really suits you I sew cute.

Hoxierice, I adore and want that choker, so Victorian and pretty and beyond what I did, way beyond... the beading is gorgeous too.

I agree with Anya kase, everything is different, my cup runneth over....

^ We certainly do Cheesy

I received from Not Quite Scooter Trash this morning! She nailed my tastes, my choker is perfect - beautiful and beady and shiny and soo comfy too! It's crocheted with chiffon ribbon and a beautiful pendant and sparkly shiny beads.


(No action shots cos I suck at taking them, but it looks even more gorgeous "on"!)

I got some extras too - a couple of fun knitting needle bangles and a roll of aluminium wire for chainmaille experiments. I was complaining about the lack of availability of anything other than galvy steel in most of the hardware stores round here, so Scooter was kind enough to send me some!


Aren't I lucky! Thanks Scooter, you're such a wicked swap partner!
