61  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lego jewelry!!!!!!!!! on: August 18, 2011 08:02:29 AM
I am 29 years old and I have a sudden obsession with Legos.  I don't know why, it just came over me one day.  I never had Legos when I was a kid, and I've been bitter about it ever since.  Tongue  so, I went a little crazy and bought a bunch of mini figs and Lego parts, and with some of them I made jewelry!

first up, grey Lego studs!  I bought these earrings in red, white and black from Etsy, but it wasn't until recently that I became so obsessed with Legos that I decided to make my own.  Tongue

then, I had been wanting Batman jewelry to go with my awesome Batman t-shirt.  in the last earring swap, I did get Batman logo earrings, but I still had no necklace.  so here it is:

just thought I had to share.  you like?  Grin

yes, I have become obsessed with yet another young adult vampire series.  Roll Eyes

I saw this necklace on the cover of the Chosen book and had to have it.  so, I made it!  Grin  finding the pendant was the hardest part.  here's the original:

and here's my take on it:

63  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / grey/blue bracelet for my cousin, plus 2 others on: August 09, 2011 11:48:46 PM
my cousin saw the steampunk bracelet that I did for my cuff bracelet swap and fell in love with it.  I mean CRAZY in love.  so, I told her to measure her wrist and give me the colors she wanted and I'd make her one.  she went nuts!!!

for those who haven't seen my steampunk bracelet:

I also made a Ravenclaw-themed one for the second Deathly Hallows swap:

this is the finished product for my cousin:

64  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my mini wearable koi pond! on: March 08, 2011 04:42:34 PM
inspired by MissingWillow's Wearable Koi Pond, I decided to make my own.  Grin

now, I have a pocket watch that I took apart a while ago, but I haven't figured out how to keep certain parts together and how I want to decorate the outside.  so, I decided to make mine out of my beloved Fossil watch case and leather strap (the mechanism died and I couldn't get it repaired Cry).

65  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another coin necklace - Twilight Forks, Washington quarter on: March 04, 2011 07:14:38 PM
I finally got my metal stamping set!!!  it's only numbers and letters, but I'll be grabbing shapes as soon as I can find them.  anyways, you might be familiar with my birthday necklace made from a penny (but if you aren't, there's the link) and now I give you a Washington state quarter with "Forks" stamped on it for a Twilight themed coin necklace!

the f looks a little wonky, but it was the first letter I ever stamped.  it has a round topaz Swarovski crystal and light siam heart Swarovski crystal dangling from it for my Edward.  Wink

whatcha think?
66  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my birthday necklace on: February 22, 2011 09:19:57 PM
I was looking around on Etsy (I'm so addicted to that place) and now I'm going to get into metal stamping.  right now I only have a steel hole punch, but that's ok.  I already made something.  Grin

I call it my birthday necklace because it's a penny from 1982 and the Swarovski crystal is aquamarine (for March).  Grin

simple, but I wanted to show it off.

*disclaimer: this is NOT illegal.  just so everyone knows this.
67  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / fairy wing pendants!! on: October 31, 2010 01:04:48 PM
I am totally addicted to making these (thanks a lot atlascoughedRoll Eyes  Wink.

she had made a pair of fairy wings for the Multi-Themed Steampunk Swap we were in together a few months ago.  her pair can be found here (you'll have to scroll down a little to see them).  she got the idea from a book I already had on my wishlist called Enchanted Adornments: Creating Mixed-Media Jewelry with Metal, Clay, Wire, Resin & More.  the instructions called for resin, but she used Glossy Accents (or Crackle Effects.  I used GA).  so, I had to make a pair for my partner in the Legend swap and a few more for myself.  Grin

it's hard to see, but I put glitter in this pair.

then I got a little crazy and used leopard and zepra print tissue paper too.

the zebra one has flatback rhinestones in it to give it some sparkle, while the rest have glitter.  I put a second coat over the ones that have glitter to seal it in there, or a lot of it would have fallen off.  I also thought it would be neat to make a pendant from some of the "pirate" items I had bought to make pirate jewelry a while ago.

her instructions on how to make them can be found here.

hope you like them!
68  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Morrissey painting turned cross stitch picture on: August 03, 2010 11:06:53 AM
I made this for the FOC swap, and I just had to show it off.  not sure what happened to my partner, but I know it's been delivered, so I'm going to post it now.

this was the original picture on her wist:

block by block, I turned it into a cross stitch pattern using only MS paint.  it ended up turning into this:

I worked on it nearly everyday for hours on end over the course of 2 weeks.

whatcha think?
