Woop Beki's sister has recieved the package i sent. So i'm good to post up piccies!
****BEKI IF YOU DON'T WANNA SEE YOUR SWAP PACKAGE THEN STOP SCROLLING!!!****
Lacy apple headband. There's 2 pics cos the first one doesnt show what it is and the second one came out all funny. I know it's very girly and OTT but i kinda did it with the idea of wearing it at like Twilight cosplay or a Twilight convention
if such things exist (which they bloody well should!). So i hope Beki likes it!
...yes i know. It's spring, and too warm for a scarf, but it was very cold when i started making it! Her 2 fave books are Twilight and Breaking Dawn so i did the one cover on one end and the other on...erm, the other. They were done with felt and embroidery, could've done them an awful lot better but never mind
I suggested she could use it as a wall hanging if she wanted! she could swap sides around according to which book she liked best at what time. Oh, and one more thing, i chose a houndtooth (is that what u call it?) scarf because it reminded me of Jacob and co.
Apple broach! I made this our of polymer clay and i'm really proud of it! Have to fess up though... i didn't paint it. My wonderful, super talented, artist boyfriend did, and he did an amazing job. I told him what i wanted it to look like and he did it exactly right. I wanted it to look vintage and precious, like Edward could've bought it a century ago and then gave it to Bella
I made Beki a mixed CD of Twilighty tracks, before i found our ur not really supposed to do CD's, but by then it was too late and i couldn't bare not giving it to her, i've been working on it for ages. There's 3 songs for each book, with the exception of Midnight Sun which has 2 songs cos it's unfinished
Then i chose a quote from the song which i felt related to a moment in the books, then added a quote from the book to back this up (am i making sense?).

obligatory Bella Bracelet! Tried to make mine as accurate as possible to the description in the book. Well...visually anyway, i can't carve wood! So i made it from polymer clay instead, and yes, my boyfriend painted it
He's awesome! I liked the bracelet and apple broach so much that i made another set for myself and forced my boyfriend to paint mine too (he pretends it's a task but he loves painting really). The heart is real swarovski crystal and twinkles in the light!
...think that's everything, sorry this post was so long! Hope y'all and Beki likes everything!
