Keep that heart price as the absolute LOWEST you will go, but price according to your head. The difference between head and heart gives you room to haggle, have a sale, or trade.

Thank you for posting this!  I didn't even think about patching this way, I just slapped a patch on, no darning stitches.  And it was so uncomfortable.  Next time my jeans blow out, I'm going to try this.

I like them, too.  But, are they heavy?

I like.  My daughter would totally steal that Hello Kitty piece from you; you got just the right color pink glitter. Smiley  I just recently found this blog: http://resincrafts.blogspot.com and it is making me want to get my resin molds out to play with!

I really like how the straps reflect the shell slice shapes, and I LOVE the lampwork beads you used.  Beautiful work!

Very pretty. Smiley I love the dolphin charm peeking through.

If you weave, this would be perfect for making the twisted fringe at the ends.  If you sew, you can make your own decorative cording for piping and couching.  You can use the ropes to make bag handles, or necklaces.  You can use them for lacing.

Thank you for your kind words!  Bakeneko, I have also decided to start wearing more hair decorations.  Next, I am thinking of a more comb style for myself, rather than this long pin style.

I love playing with resin, too!  You should check out this blog, she has a lot of interesting ideas I plan on trying out the next time I am playing with resin.

After what feels like way, way, way too long, I am trying to get more beading into my life.  I have lots of ideas and plans, I just haven't had the time to get anything finished.  Well, I'm trying to change that now.  This is the first piece that I have finished, a hair decoration inspired by the maple leaf (momiji) kanzashi that geisha wear in November.  The beadwork was done first, then stitched to some stiff interfacing backed with a kimono silk scrap.



There are some obvious (to me, anyway) issues, which means that I have to keep it.  Darn. Cheesy  If you don't know what kanzashi are, here's the wikipedia page:
