I'm back with yet another decade long project Cheesy

Years ago I dabbled at pottery and made some project that resulted with tiny clay stars. I fell in love with those and decided to try to make beads from them. It was a risk, but they worked! The holes I'd made stayed open. I painted the stars and did nothing with them. Fast forward ten years (at least) and here they are Smiley

Chirel, Those are really cute! I'm not sure how long they are, but they remind me of a princess necklace for a little sweet princess.  Wink

Just long enough to comfortably reach around my neck, so they might work on a child too Smiley There's a fourth one too, but I ran out of dark coloured clasps. I'll need to make a list and wait a while before I dare go into the bead store again Cheesy They sell clasps individually, but somehow I end up spending 40 euros every time I go there.

Cute star beads! Like the hole placement especially. Looks like the beads will hang so much better than the commercial ones. How did you get them so precise?

My young nieces are wearing lots of necklaces now.  I think they would love those!  Nice job...and wow, that is a long WIP!  Bet you are glad you finally did something with them! Cheesy

Actually I hardly remember making these, it was such a long time ago But I think I had some kind of stamp or cutter that made the stars (I needed star shaped holes in a flat piece of clay). Then I poked through them with a wooden skewer. That's the only place the hole could be, because when the stars were still wet they would have lost their shape complitely if I'd tried to place the hole symmetrically (like I wanted). And the rest is just me being me I have high standards Cheesy some call it OCD. If I'm making something small and precise, then that's exactly what I make. Other times I just throw stuff together and declare it a finished product (like the handmade papers).

This won't make a dent in your stash, but it is a fun and easy way to use up some little bits of everything!

Just sold a box of random craft stuff for $10, just have to hang on to it until Friday or Saturday, which is ok.  My goal is to have my craft room completely clean and organized by august 23RD, and if that means getting rid of the unused stuff, then that's what I will do.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

J_Kieviet that's a good decision. I've been slowly donating craft supplies. I figured, my home is not a landfill, it's better someone else has a chance to use those materials.

I've been patching my sons pants lately. I'm not sure if that counts as proper destaching, but I'll post you a picture later. I use a pair of pants to cut patches for others, so maybe it counts Smiley
