Thank you both !!
Oooh, a rainbow bracelet ... that's a great idea =D I dunno if I'll ever wear it if I make one, though ^^; And I can't think of a friend, whom I can give it to ... hmmm ... ah, well ^_^

Wow ... you've really pulled those buttons and pearls together. Great work !! I, too love buttons ... I've got a buttons bracelet =)) I used to have a button choker, but the string broke ... ah, well ...

Thank you both =))

Yes, I love my mom ... I'll always be her little girl, too ... she still can't accept that my brother is not living with us(he's studying in another city) anymore and that he's on his own there ... she still calls him every day, gives him advice ... and I wonder what will it be like with ME =D Yes, it's great to know there are such moms =))
Yup, the bracelet is awesome !! I will always remember the moment he gave it to me ^_^
24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: White Zig-Zag Choker on: September 30, 2007 04:05:50 AM
Why, thank you ^_^

Oh, yes ... my mom is the one person who encourages me ... not only for crafting, but for everything - education, drawing ... and she is the one who praises me when I do good things - get good grades, clean the house, take the trash out etc.

My brother, however .... is not very thoughtful XD Well, he acts like he isn't, but I know he cares about his little sister ^_^ This bracelet and a keychain are the two things he brought for me when he was on vacation ... and those two things, as far I can remember, are his only gifts from him to me =)) So I cherish them a lot ... and I thing he bought them with his own money =D
25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Two Black & White Bracelets on: September 30, 2007 03:51:00 AM
I've got a lot of black clothes ... well, not TONS, but ... just enough Wink My hair is /naturally/ black, I've got dark tan and I LOVE black ... so I thought to make myself a few black bracelets, since I already have a black necklace and I made myself a black choker ... oh, and I also made myself a black button bracelet ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=193917.msg2044110 ) =)) But I thought that I'd look too dark and gothy ONLY with black ... and I'm not really that kinda girl ... also, I wanted to add some other color to the bracelets, since I will have black hair, black top, black necklace, black bracelet on my one hand and ... it would look dull =))
So I decided to make a black and white bracelet !!

Here is the result :

On my hand

And then I thought to make another bracelet ... well, it was originally going to be a choker, but I totaly hated the way it looked on my neck, so I decided to put it on my hand it looked really cool =)) I mean ... here is the supposed-to-be-choker :

+ a close up

And here is it on my hand :

The white and black "circles" pass each other on the seperate rows. I mean it's now black circle under black circle, but it's black circle under white circle ... got my idea ?? ^^; (sorry, English isn't my first language)

What do you think ??

26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / White Zig-Zag Choker on: September 30, 2007 03:34:54 AM
My mom bought me a white necklace+earrings from a dollar one store(or in my case - lev one store) when she saw me beading necklaces and bracelets. She bought it because she thought it was cheaper to buy those ugly necklaces from dollar one stores and use the beads from them instead of buying individual beads. I think she was right =)) But w/e ...

So the necklace had tons of small white beads, some bigger white beads, some mother-of-pearls and some ... ummm ... other stuff XD I thought to make a zig-zag choker out of the small beads, since I really liked the result from my first beaded choker ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=193981.0 ). But I thought to make it slightly different, so I added the bigger beads at one point and later added those other stuff and it looked ...... interesting ...

So here are the pics ... oh, I forgot to take pictures of the original necklace >.<

The necklace itself.


On my neck =D

I later realised it(the choker) would look great with a bracelet my elder brother brought for me when we went to the sea =D
Here is the bracelet my brother gave me :

So ... what do you think about the choker ?? I want honest opinions, please, because me, myself ... I'm not quite sure whether I like it or not =/

Oh ... here's the link to the tutorial : http://www.rubysbeadwork.com/ZigZagChoker.html

I thought it was elastic ... and looks like so. But actually it's not =/ Too bad ...
28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 2 bracelets with paperclips & safety pins on: September 04, 2007 04:43:52 AM
Yesterday I found this thing(actually two of them like that, with a blue stripe and one with a red stripe) somewhere in our apartment ...

... and I thought that I could made some bracelets out of it ... or maybe even a choker necklace =)) Well, for now I've only made 2 bracelets out of it ... I'm planning to make some more ... and maybe even try the choker.

So here's the first bracelet ... the one with the safety pins.

The pin on the top is the one that actually fastens the bracelet. And the thing that is in the biggest pin in the middle is actually a button I was planning to make a ring out of ... but then I saw it laying around my junk and I thought to pin it in. Without it, the whole braceler looks dull ... and simple and .... just dull ^^

Here's how it looks on my wrist ... on the front :

Back :

The button :

The other bracelet I made with some color paper clips ... I was planning to make it with those bigger clips ... but unfortunately, I could only find a few ... so I made it with those smaller paper clips. They are all the same size, I just put the white ones the other way, to make them look bigger Wink

The clips on the top are the ones that actually fasten this thingy =)) Here's how :

On meh wrist ... the back, the fastening :

Aaaand the front/side :

Phew ... well ... that's all for now, hope you like them !!
If you have any ideas how else I can make bracelets with this thing, please do tell =))
My next idea is to sew a few buttons on !!

P.S.Excuse my hairy hand >.< ... hairy by nature =/

Wow ... great work !! It looks fabulous =)) I really like the design, the concept of it ... and I'd most definitely buy it if I saw in a shop =D Keep up the good work, hun Wink
