I just received from chimerix today and her pendants are sooo cool  ;D



The ToL is made with light green semi-precious chip beads...I'm guessing maybe jade...avertine (sp?). I'm horrible at remembering the names of those stones. Its very pretty though  ;D

The second one is a really neat skull that looks like its painted up to be a dia de los muertos skull. I almost wish I had a second to make a pair of earrings with it  ;) Its pretty sweet though.

Thanks for a great start to this swap chimerix!

I am so glad you liked them.  That TOL ended up bigger than I thought, so I hope it is wearable for you.

And some others should be on the lookout for the sisters to that sugar skull.....

From sheepBlue - they're both awesome, but the clay tree pendant is my fave!

Thanks. I only wish I was visiting home before the swap ended. I left so many crafty supplies at home including a whole horde of stamps that I would have loved to try on pendants.

sheepBlue, is that diamond glaze? It looks rockin'!!!

On the pog pendants - no. I actually bought some scrapbooking bubbles a long time ago on sale at joanns and never used them until now. It occurred to me rather spontaneously that the large bubbles were almost exactly the same size as the pogs. It was fate lol. I still need to try the diamond glaze though.

Post by: sheepBlue on September 13, 2009 05:05:07 PM
I made all the pog pendants with watercolors and stamps mounted onto a pog and then sealed and covered with the scrapbooking bubble. I love joann dollar stamps  ;D

I received 2 wonderful packages on Saturday.  One from SheepBlue and one from Chimerix (I cant believe how fast they arrived from Hawaii).

I love all the pendants I have a feeling were going to get really spoiled in this swap!

These are from Chimerix.
I got one of the cool sugar skulls:

And then I got the rest of the Skeleton too!  A neat metal skeleton with some wire wrapped black and orange beads around it.  I love them both!  Thank you!


Now from SheepBlue I received one of the coolest polymer clay pendants ever!  Its a red squid/octopus/kraken wrapped around a stone.  Sadly one of the tentacles broke off during transit but I think itll be an easy fix with a little glue.  Im just amazed at the little teeny, tiny black rings that make up the suction cups on the tentacles how did you ever get such small details on there?  Amazing.

I also got a pog necklace but forgot to bring it with me today to take a picture of it.  Its an eerie graveyard scene and I love it The reason I forgot it today was that I wore it already while I was out yesterday and put it in with my jewelry box when I got home. Ill take a picture and post tomorrow.

Thank you!

Post by: sheepBlue on September 14, 2009 10:54:31 AM
Aww, I'm glad you like it but I'm sad the octo pendant broke  :'( I thought I packaged it well enough. I even made little boxes to put it in. Oh well, glue should do it.

Here's a link to the tute I made for how to make the octo pendants. It's pretty simple but you have to have some patience  ;)

Here's a picture of the unbroken octo pendant. Hopefully you can make it whole again



Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: AsphaltQueen on September 14, 2009 06:15:52 PM
sheepBlue, those octopus pendants are so cool. Totally not my style, but very cool. ;D


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: psyche on September 14, 2009 08:08:21 PM
Ooh! Octo ball. Very, very cool. I also really like the chandelier + raven you made for chimerix.


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: ursulaandolive on September 15, 2009 08:43:10 AM
Here is my other pendant from sheepBlue!


Love it!  ;D


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: crafty gurll on September 15, 2009 09:27:20 AM
I love those pog ones so much! :D


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: sheepBlue on September 15, 2009 03:11:34 PM
Hehe, they were hard to give away. After it all I had to keep one for myself  ;D Its a double of the raven/candelabra one.

Here's my latest pendants from AsphaltQueen who is a goddess of the steampunk! The owl is so awesome and the time piece on it is perfectly situated. She also sent me a skeleton key (!!!) with a gorgeous purple drop attached. I tried to take a picture to show its color better. I don't think I ever mentioned that I liked skeleton keys.

Thanks so much AQ!!! It's going in my jewelry box with all my other faves from you  ;)

Post by: sheepBlue on September 15, 2009 03:13:25 PM
Also a little secret for all the people that got pogs from me: on the back I stamped "Wicked" hehe. Maybe one of you guys could show a picture - I don't think I took any of the backside.

Post by: AsphaltQueen on September 17, 2009 01:57:56 PM
Glad you like it, chimerix! The black base is tatting that was done by the lovely sewknitter. I added the vintage watch movement and decided the spider charm was too cute - I thought it looked like she was weaving her web!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: Wendellina on September 17, 2009 02:01:59 PM
Without sounding goofy, I thought the same thing about the web, I really like it!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: psyche on September 17, 2009 06:17:29 PM
I received my first pendant today, yay!

It's one of the pretty little sugar skulls, from chimerix:


Thanks, chimerix - it's great. And it even prompted me to give my mom a little lesson about the Day of the Dead! :)


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery

I was finallt able to pry crafty gurll's paws off of the goodies so I could take a pic and show off the awesomeness from Asphalt Queen!

Mine!!!!!!!  *woohoo*


She threw in a few "extras" for crafty gurll for being our fearless leader  :D ;) On behalf of Chris, she lovvvvves them all!





Thanks again Asphalt Queen, you rock ! \../



Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: AsphaltQueen on September 21, 2009 09:53:01 AM
I'm glad everyone is liking their pendants! It was exciting to see so many of us like upcycled, "green" and/or funky jewelry. Those descriptions are right up my alley! ;D


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: sheepBlue on September 21, 2009 11:07:43 AM
I love that bird pendant! So fun  :)

I thought I'd let you guys know I still haven't found any pogs but I went to Joanns today and saw in the craft/wood section various sizes of round circles much like pogs (though it doesn't have a fine finished surface like pogs do). So now I have something to work with again!  ;D


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery

I'm finally getting to posting a picture of the great pendant the SheepBlue made me. It came with me on my weekend getaway to Blue Mountain, Ontario - but I didn't expect that I would have a terrible (stripey, bathing suit) sunburn from going to a SPA, so I couldn't wear it out to the pubs! (I didn't want to bring attention to the centre of my chest. Ha.)

Anyway, I got one of the tentacle pieces -  a beautiful purple tentacled creature with red suckers wrapped around a blue stone. Perfect colours for me, and good stalking - there are definitely some tentacular pieces on my Wists!

Here's the lovely pendant I got from u&o!


It's very well made and the button is so cute! (I know I recognize that print - what children's book is that from? Or am I way off base?)


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery

Glad you like your pendant.  The Gryphon on the pendant is actually from Alice in Wonderland and then the image on the button is from a cookbook from the 1940's (if I remember correctly).  ;D

I got the most awesome pendants from Wendlina and craftygurl!!! They also were sweethearts and angeled for me too.



I was really really hoping for some ceramic pendants from craftygurl since I LOVED the ones she sent last round hehe. And I'm completely smitten with the metal heart and bead charms that W did. Thank you so much gals!!  ;D

Get ready for some total and complete awesomeness...I received my first pendant from Wendellina today.  I LOVE sugar skulls, so guess what I got?  A poly clay sugar skull!  :D  ;D  :D



The flowers are made from handmade canes too!  I am completely in awe, it is that cool.  Cannot *wait* to see #2, so get a crack-a-lackin lady.  ;)  For real, I love it a lot, it is kick ass!  Muchas gracias, you rock.   \../   :D

Then I saw my pendant from wendellina - very pretty, thank you!


And then I opened up the ones from craftygurll - too cute! I especially like the scissors, very crafty!  :D


Thanks for organizing such a great swap and thanks for the wonderful pendants!

Alrighty, how do you not lovvvve the scissors?  I wore them the other day and recvd several compliments!  Hubby thought they were real  :D ::) :D.  I think it is awesome!!!  Love the rhinestone touch, very classy!


Ok, the word tomfoolery is a word that is often missunderstood.  I use the word frequently as situations arise.  This is the coolest ever!  Thanks crafty gurll!!!


And yes, #2 is on its way!

Here they are sorry it took so long to get photos up!

This is my fabulous package from Wendellina and crafty gurll (The dynamic pendant duo!)

From crafty gurll one of the great scissor pendants.  I saw these in the gallery and was so happy to see I had one in my package too. Then a cool dictionary pendant with an awesome bat image on it.  Love it a great addition to my growing collection of bat pendants.


Now from Wendellina WOW, I was blown away with your steampunk creations!  Love, love, love them!  A cool vintage cameo and a timepiece one.  Little did you know that I decided to go steampunk this year.  Im going to 2 different steampunk conventions and these will be so fun to wear.  Thank you!


Then crafty gurll and Wendellina angeled for me and I got a Scaramouch yes you heard me right a Scaramouch!  Believe it or not I knew what a Scaramouch was and think this pendant is da bomb!  My other angeled pendant is a lovely double heart with bead.  Very pretty. Thank  you both!  You ladies ROCK!

Yay, I'm glad you liked them.  And I knew you would know what it was because you are cool like that.   ;) 

As soon as I saw that in the dictionary, the words to Bohemian Rhapsody came to mind:  "Scaramouche Scaramouch can you do the fandango."   :D


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 2 Gallery
Post by: Wendellina on December 01, 2009 11:02:18 AM
So glad you like them!  I was very hesitant on making them since I am not too familiar with steampunk.  After making these I have a better understanding.

Very cute, love the glittery orange cardstock they came on.   :D  And mine:



I have a matching ring from Zuliblu from another swap, goes with the flower pendant perfectly.   :D  And after lots of harassment, Wendellina got tired of my sass and made me this:



I plan on putting the ass is sass when I wear that little charmer!   ;)  :D  ;D

Here are the lovely pendants I received.

From zuliblu, an altered domino pendant (Craftster photo hosting is still hating on me, so hopefully it will rotate this photo sometime soon).
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=313460)

And from psyche, a wire wrapped seaglass pendant with some super-cool seaglass extras.
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=313461)

Thanks a bunch, ladies, they're both awesome!

And I think I only have one pendant left to receive from twistedbeader (and I'm surprised I haven't received it yet because we both live in Michigan).

Here are some very late photos (I'm late posting - not that they were late sending) of some wonderful pendants:

Twistedbeader sent me a mouse both electronic and real a mouse on each side.  I love the humor in this such a fun pendant!  Thank you!


I also received a lovely wire wrapped glass pendant from Psyche, then I misplaced it but Im happy to say I found it again!  Yeah!  She also sent me some fun, retro, super cool, plastic devil charms!  Love them all!  Thank you!

I'm about to post pictures of the pendant psyche sent to me!! I got it last week before Christmas and since then things have been a little hectic with the hoildays and work. Brb!

Edit:

I got this awesome spiral pendant that has a cool purply metallic sheen to it. She was also really thoughtful and sent along some POGS!!!  ;D I haven't found any still but these will definitely be put to good use. Thanks so much psyche!



Also a big thanks to the organizers  :D This was a really fun swap!
