1  New items! Taking a new direction... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by koola on: March 04, 2010 02:17:54 PM
Not a clue how to resize pictures on here, so i apologise if they seem a bit large.

I've spent 3 years making jewellery but have only recently realised that the competition is Etsy is fierce and many can make jewellery much better than i can, so i am now delving into the world of accessories. Hope you like.

A crocheted wallet. I would not recommend anyone sew large pieces of felt onto crocheted material, as it's quite flexible the material stretched as the felt stayed still and i ended up with very warped, wonky edges. If it had worked fully it would've been great, but i'm not a lucky kind of person. Still, i love the front design so couldn't throw it away, it's not that bad but i'm a bit of a perfectionist.

Yarn Stuffie Brooch. Sold within hours of listing, good times. Nothings sold since, bad times. This took an age to hand embroider.

A paper collage of a sewing machine sealed with mod podge (glue of the gods) and an acrylic varnish, finished with a swarovski crystal. DOES NOT PHOTOGRAPH WELL but looks very pretty in real life, i promise.

Feather stuffie brooch. I cut this feather out FREEHAND, bow down. Think it would look super cool pinned to a hat, but i don't wear hats, so that's down to someone else.

Hope you like Smiley I feel really proud of my new stuff, it's not just putting components together, i feel like i'm actually going back to my art roots (5 years at college should finally count for something).

2  xmas red clutch in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by koola on: October 16, 2009 08:19:45 AM
I started crocheting 4 days ago Cheesy and having started knitting first i found crocheting a welcome relief! It's so easy! I found this pattern in the Stitch n Bitch Happy Hooker book but did it in my own colour and without their modifications. When i'd finished i added tiny pearls around the rim and added a candy cane brooch to make it (optionally) christmassy Smiley I'm proud of my first proper crochet project! hope u like!

4  Some new vintage jewellery! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by koola on: April 03, 2009 01:28:18 PM
For once i've been very productive making jewellery for my company (I've just started earning ACTUAL money, so i'm pretty happy). Here's some i've got, and there's more on the way!

A pushing Daisies inspired locket necklace. I call it the "Chuck" necklace! It's got a daisy on the locket, a little lace bow on the chain and an ickle bee near the heart shape clasp!

Another locket, similar style as before, but this is just themed on vintage flowers. I call it the "enchanted garden" locket Smiley

A ring using the same flower as before, with a little swarovski crystal in it's centre!

Hope you like Smiley

Woop Beki's sister has recieved the package i sent. So i'm good to post up piccies!


Lacy apple headband. There's 2 pics cos the first one doesnt show what it is and the second one came out all funny. I know it's very girly and OTT but i kinda did it with the idea of wearing it at like Twilight cosplay or a Twilight convention Cheesy if such things exist (which they bloody well should!). So i hope Beki likes it!

...yes i know. It's spring, and too warm for a scarf, but it was very cold when i started making it! Her 2 fave books are Twilight and Breaking Dawn so i did the one cover on one end and the other on...erm, the other. They were done with felt and embroidery, could've done them an awful lot better but never mind Smiley I suggested she could use it as a wall hanging if she wanted! she could swap sides around according to which book she liked best at what time. Oh, and one more thing, i chose a houndtooth (is that what u call it?) scarf because it reminded me of Jacob and co. Smiley

Apple broach! I made this our of polymer clay and i'm really proud of it! Have to fess up though... i didn't paint it. My wonderful, super talented, artist boyfriend did, and he did an amazing job. I told him what i wanted it to look like and he did it exactly right. I wanted it to look vintage and precious, like Edward could've bought it a century ago and then gave it to Bella Smiley

I made Beki a mixed CD of Twilighty tracks, before i found our ur not really supposed to do CD's, but by then it was too late and i couldn't bare not giving it to her, i've been working on it for ages. There's 3 songs for each book, with the exception of Midnight Sun which has 2 songs cos it's unfinished Smiley Then i chose a quote from the song which i felt related to a moment in the books, then added a quote from the book to back this up (am i making sense?).

Tracklist (If i can remember it all!)


1. Strange and Beautiful - Aqualung

2. Come Here Boy - Imogen Heap

3. #1 Crush - Garbage

New Moon

4. It Doesn't Matter - Alison Krauss

5. Broken Wings - Flyleaf

6. I Miss You - Incubus


7. Hunter - Bjork

8. Which Will - Nick Drake

9. Last Goodbye - Jeff Buckley

Breaking Dawn

10. Strong - Velvet Chain

11. My Never - Blue October

12. Wild Horses - The Sundays

Midnight Sun

13. Closer - Kings of Leon

14. Never Think - Robert Pattinson

obligatory Bella Bracelet! Tried to make mine as accurate as possible to the description in the book. Well...visually anyway, i can't carve wood! So i made it from polymer clay instead, and yes, my boyfriend painted it Cheesy He's awesome! I liked the bracelet and apple broach so much that i made another set for myself and forced my boyfriend to paint mine too (he pretends it's a task but he loves painting really). The heart is real swarovski crystal and twinkles in the light!

...think that's everything, sorry this post was so long! Hope y'all and Beki likes everything!

Woooo i recieved my package from Beki! It's truly awesome!

eee a really nice big, soft bag with what i think is (very well done) hand stencilling in black and sexy gold paint Smiley

2 awesome hand-binded books with uber shiny card *eee* and inside lots of pics from the Twilight manga books. I think that's the scene where Bella faints during blood typing, you can see Mike's annoyed face in the background Smiley

She very kindly made me a copy of the Twilight album, can't wait to listen to it! Apparently making CD's is kinda frowned upon (which sucks a bit, for reasons ull soon see), but don't worry i won't distribute the music around or anything, and i would've downloaded it anyway cos i don't buy CD's anymore.

Apple!!!!! i warn you, there's a Twilight esque pose coming up in the future using this apple!!!

Badges! Stupid Shiny Volvo Owner!!!

The most gorgeous, amazing Twilighty phone/bag charm. Really don't know where to put it, it's so awesome that i don't wanna lose or break it!

and lastly, but by no means least, APPLE PILLOW!!! it now sits on my bed alongside my cupcake cushion, Sulley and various other stuffed things! Dunno if you can tell but the apple is super sparkly, it's gorgeous. So squishy too!

Ta Beki, best swap partner ever! Smiley Oh, and she's in Russia...right about now i think, so i shall be posting pics of her package when her sister recieves it for her.

Ok, evidence of Sasserdesas's awesomeness. I still owe her big time!

Little house chest! Very cool, i love chests (erm, that sounded wrong) ya know wot i mean!

Inside...lots of different size syringes, thankfully without the needles *shudder*. These are gonna be super helpful because i'm wanting to try some perfumery so these'll be great for measuring liquids!

Ameoba keyring!!! So cute and squidgy! Love it Cheesy

Some very cool framed medical diagrams which i love, and a yummy House pic too *drool*

Last but by no means least, an It's Never Lupus t-shirt! It fits perfectly and i wore it all Christmas day Cheesy It's perfect!

How awesome a swap partner is Sas, huh?

Thanks  Cheesy
