I'm not a sciency person but love the periodic table so when my swap partner loved chemistry i couldnt wait to craft her up some periodical table goodies. her name is samantha and with the exception of 'A' i could use elements to spell her name. so 'a' i just removed the last letter from two of her favorite elements silver and gold


her favorite element is arsenic (isnt it everyones? lol) so thought a "poison" ring - minus the poison would be kind of cool


some silver and gold fancy bobby pins


and a potassium cell phone dangly/zipperpull that can be removed to make a pendant if she so chooses


I hope she likes everything
c&c welcome - thanks for looking

They are all sweet, except the ring which is maybe a little bitter-sweet!
Seriously, the ring is my favourite of all of them.

The stitch markers are so cute! I think they would also make great cellphone charms or pendants :3

You caught this non-jewelry-maker's eye. Those are sweeeeet.

Now I want to try--can you point me in the right direction?

A friend is a chemist. He is also hard to buy for, and worse to craft for. We end up giving gift certificates or household goods, since they just bought a new house. Ho-hum.

He and his sweet wife love having folks (fellow chemical types) over for parties.

Wouldn't wine-glass charms be cute for them? It might make him smile!!!

I would love to try making some, but have no idea how you did the little frames.  Is it too difficult for a complete beginning? HELP, anybody?!

oh wow cool!! i will have to check out craftster on facebook (my other guilty pleasure)


the stitch markers are don on shrinky dink paper. i looked high and low for a periodic table with a unique type for the large letters but had the number mass and name as well and finally i just gave up and made my own in ms office.

the ring, bobbies and dangly are all done using glass 'marbles' which somewhat magnifies the image underneath. glue the image to the bottom of the glass using something like modge podge dimensions or diamond glue (cant remember the exact name off hand) then seal it once its dry and use e6000 glue to adhere the glass to whatever it is you are making (bale for a pendant, or ring blank)  i'm still somewhat new to that technique but i'm and old pro at shrinky dink. i love shrinky dink i'd use it for everything if i could! lol

i may have to make myself something periodic table. my favorite element is neon. i cant help but smile and see pinks and greens and yellows and blues and think 80's when i see neon on the periodic table. its like my own little piece of the 80's right there on the periodic table

Thank you, 1boy1girl1kitty2!

I have used shrinky dinks and didn't recognize them in the first shot. You do verrry nice work!

I have used the round glass marbles for magnets by gluing images to the underside. Today I'll go on a treasure hunt to find some square ones!

I can just see his face...especially at a party! Thank you! You solved a real gifting conundrum for me, and you even did it with time to spare! (B-day is Feb. 8!)
