1  Re: Rise of the Cougars Geezer Swap, Round 7 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by anna.wahnsinn on: Today at 02:37:34 AM
So here is another thing that kept me from finishing Abeeroad's Geezer project, and I couldn't be happier about this for any other reason I think: I got to pick up my package from onyxnox from the customs office today (means a tram and bus ride with a walk of a few kilometres thrown in for good measure since they relocated last year...)

Anyway I kind of knew/was hoping I'd get a Viking knit necklace with some pretty beaded flowers because we had talked about it. Onyxnox made gave away one in the FOC raffle I adored. And I did. More or less. More, actually. You'll see!

Here is the necklace with the pretty beaded flowers, much like the one I had seen from onyxnox and admired so much!

On me (poor poor phone selfie), you can see my smile – I'll be smiling a lot today!

And here you can see the pretty beaded flowers with all of the other flowers that came with the necklace for me to switch out and play with!

Seriously, how awesome is this? The endpieces are handmade with lovely spirals, all the focal pendants can be worn two or three ways (dangling up or down, or connecting the chain from left to right), and of course the chain on its own is a beautiful piece of jewelry to wear. And my favourite flowers too, I got some Iris! A single one, and a branch with three.

Thank you so much onyxnox, I really, really love what you made for me!

(And I could go on gushing over this forever, but now I'll go back to working on my project for Abbeeroad. It's 24 days late so far, but I hope to finish tomorrow. Finally. For good. Whenever I tried to hurry just a little bit things have gone awry, so I'm trying to be very, very patient.)

Sold to kwality570: Purple multistrand necklace (I still have another purple one available!) I swear this is more purple than brown in daylight. But mostly warmer shades...

Thank you!

I've been trying to post a few new necklaces for more than two hours now. Finally tried flickr, that worked. Now I'm going to bed, tomorrow's gonna be a very long day...

Here I am wearing one of the new necklaces (in very poor lighting):

Quick question in terms of shipping to Germany if I were to claim Anne, is it basically the same cost as to Canada(I ship there alot is why I compare it)?

Can't exactly help with this, I'm sorry, but look what I just got!!! (I just posted this, but it seems to have got eaten up somewhere):

My t-shirt from round 134 made it to my door today! Blupaisan took one of my favourite panels from my alltime  favourite comic and put it on a shirt for me! I just love, love, love Calvin & Hobbes.

Thank you so much blu, I love it!

But yay, I'm so excited about the necklace! Seriously, I have some from Anna from previous rounds and always get compliments!  You totally should get one! Wink

Oooh, thank you! That's so good to hear. *blushes*

Jewelry from far, far away!
All the way from Bremen, Germany from a pet- and smoke-free home.

**** Open! ****

I’ll keep adding items as I find or make them. I'm always happy to make a custom necklace or pendant for you! All items will be sent via registered mail so there will be tracking provided for most countries (USPS for example is very good about it!) – but this also means that they will have to be signed for.


Beaded items

Multistrand Necklaces
These necklaces are a very comfortable 53cm/21" along the shortest strand and 65cm/22.5" along the longest strand. Silver plated lobter clasp (I can change that for you easily), the tube thingies are free of nickel and cadmium.

And because Craftster doesn't want my pics right now these come from flickr:
Worn they look like this (in very poor lighting just then):

Multistrand necklace teal (2 points) 2 available

Multistrand necklace blue (2 points) 2 available

Multistrand necklace purple (2 points) 1 available

Multistrand necklace brown (2 points) 3 available

Multistrand necklace red (2 points) 2 available

Multistrand necklace rainbow (1 point) 3 available

This one is a little shorter and has only 8 strands of 5mm seed beads.

Lattice Style Necklaces
clasps and lengths as pictured, cm more accurate than inches!

claim as ruby (clear silverlined seed beads in a deep red, no clasp, longer, 50cm/20") (2 points)

1 point each as is,
2 points if you want me to shorten/lengthen the necklace and/or change the clasp:

Many more shortish ones between 14 and 20 inches here sorted by colour! Will provide measurements for each. These are from my early days of beading, I'd say from 2004ish (I know I made lots during my honeymoon), mostly strung on linen thread (not stretchy). I've added pictures that show the lengths, the necklaces are in the same order in all pictures.

Claim as Blue 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Claim as Black 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Claim as Red 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Claim as Green 1, 2, 3, 4


Other jewelry

Silmarillion necklace (1 point)

Cobalt blue memory wire bracelet (1 point)
(one size really fits all)

Cabochon necklaces
(1 point each)

Square cabochons: claim as purple damask, deep purple, teal green, blue purple.

Round cabochons: claim as teal green, turquoise, purple, lavender

The solid, heavy settings are silverplated. These cabochons come with a silver plated chain necklace; brown, black or purple leather; or black, brown, pink, blue or green satin cord. Choose your clasp, either a silver plated or black regular lobster clasp, silverplated toggle clasp, magnet clasp. I also have a few heartshaped lobster clasps left! The length would is up to you, too.

Miscellaneous crafted items

Rainbow seed bead stitch markers (0.25 point)
for a set of ten markers, 10 sets available. 5 sets for 1 point.
Beads are 3-5mm, rings 8mm I think.


Cabochons (pick 5 for .5 points or 10 for 1 point). (I did give a few away already, I'll get new pictures and numbers asap) Of course I can also make these into pendants/necklaces! The cabochons measure about an inch across.

I ordered this book with the amazon gift card kittykill got me, Stamped Metal Jewelry by Lisa Niven Kelly. I've wanted that for quite a while now!

I ordered on March 21, got the shipping notification today, ETA is April 10... Seems I'll go on wanting for a while longer yet Wink

So as I was just saying, here is my perfect new things-to-remember-thingy from fishstix!

Phone cover and keys supplied by myself, the card and the floss came with the thingy!

As you can see I already found a hammer (if there is something I keep losing it's the tools I use most often!) and a nail and it has properly moved in with us now.

Thank you so much fishstix, I love it! I've been wanting one for quite some time and am completely happy with this lovely purple one. Of course embroidery floss is always very welcome too, and the girls have been asking for the card, they want out to cut out the doggies to play with them. (Which might mean that I get to keep the thingy without much discussion, yeah!)

Whoops, I was just reminded that I posted this to the wrong thread. Left it there because there's a comment already, and basically just copied it...

I just have to show you what I got from Averia the other day:

This is me with my brandnew favourite shirt (using the timer on my phone for the first time):

(Next time I might even play with the zoom function... Wink)

Detail shot of the lovely dandelion Avie embroidered for me – it matches a certain purple purse and two pouches I already own!

And what made my two girls pretty ecstatic (me too, but I was so happy with my shirt) were the Christmas gifts that were hiding in in the box: Two Care Bears, filled by Avie's daughters, and those antennae headbands. I bet the pink hair was supposed to be for those Stephanie costumes, right?

Thank you so much Avie! I feel much loved and very, very spoiled, and so do Lea and Hanna!
