21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re-Vintaged Jewelry! Kind of pic heavy! on: April 14, 2009 04:45:30 PM
I made all of these using parts of vintage jewelry and found objects. I hope you guys like them! I think they're cute but have always wondered if I'm blinded to their actual ugliness.

A note: I did this in my bedroom with poor lighting and I was kind of in a hurry. Result? Blurry pictures and hard to see details, I'm sorry.  Sad

This is one of my favorites. I found these heavy green stones at an antique store in Arizona along with the gold balls. I call them dimpled gold balls. I'm pretty proud of the results!

I made this using an old metal heart pendant, silver teardrop hoop, and a small silver feather charm. It's so pretty and delicate.

For the hippie I have hidden inside of me, I constructed this awesome bracelet. It's hard to envision how it would look around your wrist but I'll try my best to explain. It's supposed to wrap around your wrist about three times. One of the "layers" would be that gold chain you see kind of stretching out in front of the leather. Does that make sense?

I am in love with the two doves and heart link. I found the gold chain and charms and wooden beads off a huge and ugly necklace from a vintage store in D.C.

It looks kind of boring and bland here but when you put them on, they actually look really cute. The red wooden beads came from a necklace I got in Poland and the brown wooden beads were something I had lying around. The seed beads are gold and clear and came off another vintage necklace.

Thank you for looking! Please comment, criticize, say hi, or rhapsodize about the meaning of life. I really want to hear from you.

One: you look adorable and absolutely great after having a baby!

Two: What an amazing dress and a great idea for making it "breast-feeding friendly."

Three: I've always secretly lusted after a dress like that but never got one because... I'm a wimp. But now I'll make one, all thanks to you!! You've changed a person's life today, pat yourself on the back.  Grin

I loooooooooooooooooove the bird ring! Ahh, so beautiful!

First thing I thought of when you said the owls didn't have eyes... tiny little rhinestones? Do they have to be buttons?

Beautiful! And so creative!

Very pretty guitar. It looked vaguely like my boyfriend's signature guitar so I was like, "Is that a Neil Zaza guitar?!" Then again, I don't pay too much attention to things like that, lol.

I am definitely the same way you are about clutter and having things lying around. I would rather just shove everything in a drawer, except whenever I open said drawer, I'd have the same heart-clenching feeling I would have if it were all over the room. Lol. I'm sure you'll agree.

Just out of random curiosity, what kind of guitar is that hanging on the wall?

I love what you did to the room. It's so clean and relaxing and the color combination is gorgeous! and kudos to you for finally putting your foot down with your boyfriend! I know how it feels, lol!

very, very pretty. I like it a lot. Forgive me, but what type of painting is it?
27  Ohio / Ohio: Northeast / Craft Shows/Festivals/Flea Markets around Cleveland and Akron! on: March 03, 2009 07:28:56 PM
Am I the only one who thinks this or is it really hard to find craft shows and festivals for a certain area online? I get the most confusing results when I do a search, and then I have to go find more information on a show I read about. Argh. To make my (and other Clevelanders and Akronites') life easier, I would love if we could start a thread where we can post craft shows, festivals, and flea markets we know about. I would appreciate it so much and I'm sure other people will too.

To start us off, I'll list a couple things I heard about:

Streetsboro Flea Market - http://www.streetsborofleamarket.net/index.htm

Hartville Flea Market - http://www.hartvillefleamarket.com/outdoor_vending.php

Crocker Park Fine Arts Fair - http://www.crockerpark.com/events.php?id=253

If anyone knows any other shows, please, please, please post them here!

I looked at the first one and laughed out loud. I have the same exact birds on a branch pendant and glued a bead in the nest also. Great minds think alike! Except, I thought I could bend it so it could curve against your chest and lay better and without barely any pressure, it snapped in half. I barely started bending it! So note to you: don't bend it! I was very sad.  Sad

Thank you for the information! I'm quite enamored with all your earrings. The organic style of wrapping looks amazing. Make more!

I absolutely love those earrings! Especially how you made your own bails out of the wires. May I ask what size and type of wire did you use and where you found it? Were they half-hard or dead soft or those general wires you find in a craft store?
