21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk Necklaces and Brooches on: March 15, 2012 01:12:17 PM
My newest jewelry work =)

My favorite pieces of the batch:

I also still make some jewelry without polymer clay...

... but obviously I have this little obsession with the stuff  Grin

22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Polymer Clay Cameos on: March 06, 2012 10:47:15 AM
My latest obsession is making polymer clay cameos. I first make silicon molds for them and then make the cameos in thousands of colour combinations - or at least I was told so, actually it's not that much xD

A group photo first:

It's hard for me to pick a favourite motive, but I guess it's the owl.. I rarely keep pieces I made for myself, but I'm wearing this brooch right now ^^

I also love the turtle, although the cameo base didn't turn out very good on this one. I made a new one (+ matching mold) though and you can see the improved version in the group photo ^^

I also like how the rose turned out, I think this one looks beautiful in black/red:

I also made some faceted cabochons using the same technique. Some of them are painted and some are made using different clay colours.

23  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New fabric bracelets on: February 04, 2012 03:34:14 AM
So maybe I'm a bit (too) obsessed with making fabric bracelets lately, but I really enjoy it =)

These bracelets were made using lace and other fabric scraps, for the top one I used this technique, for the others I made felt bases and sewed the scraps onto them.
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Soluvlies Scarves + tutorial on: February 04, 2012 03:29:01 AM
I made those two scarves using soluvlies, a water soluble interfacing.
I love the technique: you simple put some fibers (or fabric and lace stripes in my case) between two layers of interfacing, arrange them the way you like, stitch through the interfacing and fabric and then you wash out the interfacing - then you have a beautiful scarf (or any item of clothing, actually) made of fabric stripes  Grin

Here's the first scarf I made in all its beauty:

And with the interfacing:

The 2nd scarf:

I took photos of all the steps when I made the 2nd scarf, so here's a short (but image heavy) tutorial:

Prepare your fabric stripes (I ripped them, because I wanted them to look frayed and organic)

Cut the interfacing to the shape you like your scarf to be, arrange the fabric stripes on it:

Cover with a new layer of interfacing, pin at a few places to secure:

Start stitching! You can draw a pattern and do this neatly or go wild like I did:

Wash out the interfacing using water, rinse at least twice. If you feel that there's some of the interfacing left maybe use some soap

Put it onto a large towel to dry

And that's it =)
If your finished scarf feels stiff/hard there's probably some interfacing left, if you don't like the effect wash it again.
25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Butterfly Fascinator on: February 04, 2012 03:16:47 AM
I made this fascinator using some wire and some parts of a lace catsuit that I cut the legs off to use it as a shirt (I couldn't find any nice and affordable lace shirts, but the catsuit was only 2... funny, actually)

I simply bent the wire into a butterfly shape, put it between two layers of the net/lace fabrics and sewed the fabric to the wire while stretching it a bit. Then I cut all the leftover fabric away - done  Grin

I've made a similar one a few months ago, using normal blkac tights and some melted/burned organza:
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / More Steampunk Hearts =) on: January 12, 2012 02:48:48 AM
I've recently shown some polymer clay steampunk hearts here - but of course I didn't stop there. Instead I made a bunch of new hearts and some necklaces and brooches with polymer clay cabochons.

27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk Hearts on: January 03, 2012 02:45:38 PM
I made some new polymer clay hearts - this time I used metallic colours and clock parts to create a more steampunkish look.

28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / More jewelry - red and purple on: November 07, 2011 07:31:37 AM
Usually I make a lot of jewelry in silver/brassxblack - lately I decided to make more colourful pieces =)

My favorite set at the moment:

And some brooches:
29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk(...ish) Jewelry - image heavy on: November 03, 2011 02:53:43 AM
Some of my new jewelry creations... I make tons of jewelry, but mostly the designs are similar to others I've made before, so I usually don't post a lot of them. Would be boring...
This time I picked some of my favorite items I've made in the last few weeks.



Random gear jewelry... if you've seen other threads of mine they might look familiar, but there are some new designs - gear studs with filigrees and the ones with colored backgrounds for example.

A winged ring:

To show the size of some of the pieces here are some photos of me wearing them =)

30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Excuse me, there's a hole in your skirt... on: October 18, 2011 10:23:16 AM
I've been planning to make a skirt out of some torn fabrics and lace for a while and now I finally did it =)
The skirt was really fun to make and to wear, I wore it over a cage hoop skirt. I also made some matching accessoiries.

Heart brooches made of felt and fabric scraps (I wore the right one)

A matching headband that got lost in my craft room, so I had to wear a different one xD

And a bracelet:
