1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tree of Life pendants on: July 17, 2009 08:49:37 AM
In early June I had a craft fair that I made many tree of life pendants for. Ive finally figured out the macro function on my camera and can now take pictures of the pendants I have left that arent out of focus and blurry. I could never get a good picture before.

The pendants come in different sizes with the largest actually being a bracelet at around 5 inches. The smaller ones are 3 and 2 inches. I used rock chips, round glass beads, and shaped beads for the leaves of the tree. I wanted to do something different, so there are butterflies and stars on a few of the pendants. They were very popular. I sold over half and had some very nice compliments. Take a look.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Round pouch. on: April 08, 2009 07:45:24 AM
I hope a pouch can go in this category. During a womans retreat last month a group of friends and I decided to spearhead next years retreat. In an effort to raise more money for this retreat we plan to sell several crafts and other donated items at a festival in June. This simple round pouch was the first I made for that purpose and the first sewing Id done in a long, long time.

The pattern was very basic, just three circles inside each other. The outside seam and then the two inner stitches for the drawstring tunnel. I threaded some ribbon through the tunnel and added some wooden beads and I think the pouch came out very nicely for my first try. Heres the finished product.

Feel free to click over to my website, Cherry Juice, to see some of the others. Link in the sig.
