1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / HELP! COIN BEZEL? COIN CLASP? on: September 05, 2011 09:56:25 PM
Ok! So heres the dealy-o....
I saw these really cool coin bracelets at a gem and mineral show that came to town. I immediately thought of my mother in-law...she loves wheat pennies and antiques in general, but I can't afford to spent $170 for a bracelet for her! Plus I have lots of coins that would be neat to use for one
I have searched and searched to try and find something like what is shown on this site...


to no avail.

I don't want to drill holes in the coins, which I have seen a lot of.

What I really need to know is what it is called. I can find tons of singular coin bezels but none that can be linked....and the ones already in a bracelet were about 80 bucks and were only one size coin.
I really like the ones shown on the site above.

If anyone could please point me in the right direction I will be your best friend!
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Buddha And Lamb Tattoo on: July 14, 2011 09:37:53 PM
Hello All!

Just wanted to post my latest drawing. It is inspired by a lyric in Old Crow Medicine Show song called I Hear Them All. The lyric is "....Hear the gentle Lamb of Judah, Sleeping at the feet of Buddha...". The line has always stuck with me and for a long time I have wanted it as a tattoo. I finally finished a pencil drawing that I have had in my mind of it. I combined a few faces that I like and I am really happy with the result! Let me know what you think!

Also if you feel so inclined I have entered it in a contest to get it tattooed for free at a tattoo expo that is coming to my area. You can go here  http://www.facebook.com/InkFestLiveTour  'Like' their page and then 'Like' my picture. Help a fellow craftster out! If I win I will totally post photos of it tattooed!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / needle size, gauge AHHH!! What does it all mean Basel?! on: January 06, 2010 08:24:43 PM
I have not been knitting that long, and have just begun to try and make things from patterns. I understand the importance of gauge with a pattern, but what if the pattern calls for two needle sizes? How does that work? I am knitting a hat and the bottom ribbing calls for size 1 needles and the rest is size 4. 
I'm I right in saying that it doesn't matter what yarn or needles size the pattern calls for as long what you are using makes the same sts per inch?   
Thanks for taking the time to clear this up!!!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Boat Curtains on: October 21, 2009 09:19:55 AM
A man that I work with got to talking one day and he was saying how he was having a really hard time finding someone to make some new curtains, pillows, and slip covers for his boat that he is redoing. I told him that I sewed and I would love to do it! I have sewn purses, laptop cases, dresses, and other odds and ends, but never specifically curtains, but I am SUPER pleased at how these came out. I just used an old one as a guide and TADA! One down and 8+ to go. This is my first paid sewing job and I would really love to do more of it, but we shall see!!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Kanzashi Flower Purse on: August 12, 2009 04:28:59 PM
I really love how this turned out! I really like the fabric combo and LOOOOOVE the flower on the front! It also has snaps at the top of the sides to widen it if needed. Tell me what you think!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Awesome material! on: April 14, 2009 02:46:25 PM
I have a wedding to go to this Saturday and I really wanted to make a dress for it. I can never find a dress that fits well. My proportions are unusual apparently because everything that fits in the waist is too small in the hips and what fits in the hips it too large in the waist!

I had this image of what I wanted... so I made it!! I used a basic pencil skirt pattern for the bottom and adjusted it to go higher. I got the idea for the top from Rascal Kosher - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280776.0 and https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280751.0 .
I did it over a period of 3 weeks, but it didn't take me that long. I just wanted to take it slow and do a good job. So when I began to get tired or frustrated with it, I would put it down.
Special thanks to shesxautomatic for help on how to do darts!
This is only the second garment I have made and the first was with a pattern so this was a first! I think it turned out great! I will try to post pictures of me in it on Saturday all dolled up and not so grody.
Let me know what you think and what may need improvement! Click on the to make them larger.

Parrot not included in the design...
Oh, and there is an eye hook to close the very top I just forgot to do so.
