21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / spiderweb earrings on: September 11, 2004 05:21:01 AM
... idea 100% stolen from Martha Stewart but her's are different.

They're sort of like, dangly bits for post earrings.

worn with my crystal star earrings.
34ga beading wire, crocheted with a #10/1.30mm steel hook. The black spiders are just knotted up black sewing thread.
22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Circlet and pendent on: September 03, 2004 03:15:51 AM

#7/1.65mm steel hook, 34gauge beading wire, glass seed beads.

#0/3.25mm steel hook, 28gauge beading wire (which I've still not figured out what it is exactly. It's not copper this time...), glass seed beads.
Pardon the icky half-dirty blonde, half dyed red hair. I'll redye my hair soon enough... It's sort of lopsided beside it's a naughty circlet that does this when off of a head.

I'm working on unkinking it...
23  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Purple Delta Mesh shawl (updated, now a poncho) on: August 22, 2004 04:32:41 AM

based on http://hassdesign.com/DeltaCrochetTechniques/, using two strands of double-knit (DK) thickness yarn with a N/10mm hook. Basically started it yesterday afternoon and finished it this afternoon. I'm debating about doing another one and partly sewing/crocheting them together into a big poncho...

Okay I made it into a poncho. it came out a *little* big for my 5'2" body but oh well. It certainly makes a statement I guess. I'd add fringe but I think it'd be in danger of dragging on the ground if I start adding on more things.

Might shorten up the neck hole too...

Edit again: Looking at it and feeling it, I'd rather have two shawls. I'm ripping out the seam holding them together now...
24  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / my old wedding projects on: August 15, 2004 03:19:16 AM
I had a really crafty wedding. Here's my veil which I made using the directions from this site: http://www.wegotgame.net/jen/veils.html

I made half of my dress... I made a massive petticoat with 15 yards of tulle, make a skirt to go overtop of that, then wore that with a corset that I bought online (no special measurements). I also made a reception skirt so I didn't have to bash people with 15 yards of fluffy tulle at the reception. That was just some interesting white-printed-stars&moons on white fabric I found at walmart, simple skirt, sew up one side, hem, fold over top and put elastic in it. I made my bouquet with fake flowers (I don't think it turned out too badly). Nice tiara bought from Claire's and all in all I'm sure I saved some stupidly huge amount of money.

picture I took myself weeks before the wedding. It doesn't look too shabby, does it?  Smiley
I did a load of other things too but I can't be bothered to list off everything  Tongue
25  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Dinosaur and snail (yarn, crocheted) on: August 14, 2004 04:08:29 PM

made from cheap yarn from a charity shop and poly stuffing, freehand.

PrototypeSnailone, yarn, polystuffing, pipecleaners, freehand as well. One day, I'll make a nicer one that looks more like gary the snail from spongebob squarepants.
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wire Necklace on: August 14, 2004 03:51:44 PM
Wasn't too sure if I should post this in the crochet section or here but I guess here is slightly more appropriate.

Triangle Necklace, purple coated copper beading wire, glass rocailles beads, size 1/2.75mm hook, crocheted

It's hard to photograph it. I think it looks more interesting in real life, although the beads sort of freak me out and remind me of fish eggs...  Undecided
