Um, fyi? Those are going to disappear from your house tonight. And just because two identical items will show up in my house, doesn't mean I stole them from you. Nope nope nope nope nope.   Cheesy Grin Wink

AsphaltQueen was my swap partner and she made me the most beautiful necklace & bracelet set, packaged in cute little boxes.





I LOVE them so much. Thank you!

Superhooker, you are so very welcome! I'm really thrilled that you love them. I had a blast crafting for you - and I enjoyed it in an extremely selfish way.  Wink I got to go shopping and try something new and make one for me. One of my guy friends has said that he wants one, now. Another friend donated a small portion of her suede stash to me (60 ounces!!!!), when I showed her what I was making, with the offer of more when she digs out the white hides.  Shocked Good things shall happen!

AQ - I'll be finishing up a couple little ones for my store this morning. Hopefully photographing and listing them this weekend.

There aren't enough exclamation marks in the world to add to my SQUEEEEE of GLEEEEEE when I opened the box from flower today.  I'm crazy excited and absolutely giddy.  Flower you knocked it out of the park for me.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I've got my very own eyeballs!!!!!! Cheesy


And here's my gruesome collection in the fantastic record album bowl...


I know on my wist it says I wanted these to be a Halloween decoration, but they're so amazing I may have to keep them out year around.  They are just so cool and feel totally wonderful in your hand.

How did you do them?  Are they felted?  I've never felted anything before, but I'm totally in love with your work.  Who would've guessed a parcel full of eyeballs could make a girls day?!

I'm so glad you like your eyeballs.  They were sooo much fun to make!  Smiley  I wet felted them to get the general shape and then needle felted them into a good sphere.  The iris and pupil were also needled.  If you want to try needle felting, eyeballs make a great first project!
