11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Lydia's Striped Snake Earrings on: August 02, 2009 11:46:15 AM
I'm a big fan of the Beetlejuice cartoons. These earrings were inspired by the cute relationship between Lydia and Beetlejuice. I imagined BJ giving these to Lydia for her birthday, as a token of his affection.

The beads are glass, and I used crafting/beading wire to make the coils.

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Peaceful Garden Charm Bracelet on: November 27, 2008 07:29:28 PM
I used silver-toned chain, with a detailed toggle clasp set, and various flower charms and beads, as well as a butterfly and dragonfly. I also included a charm with the word "Peace." The hues are mainly blue/teal, which mixes nicely with the silver tones of the chain and the toggle clasp. What do you guys think?

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Anchors Away Bracelet on: November 23, 2008 08:28:59 AM
I used chocolate-brown suede cord, a wooden bead as part of the clasp and 3 nautical-themed buttons as the charms.

At first, it was a tad difficult to get the suede cord through the buttons, but in the end, I won.

There are two anchor buttons and the center button is of a ship wheel. I am in love with this bracelet.

14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Twilight Inspired Necklace on: November 21, 2008 09:55:51 AM
I am a Twilight fan, and with the movie's release today, this past month has been a Twilight-crazed blur. I have seen dozens of people creating jewelry inspired by the books ad the movie. Feeling left out on that front, I decided to make something myself. Here it is:

I call it Edward's Topaz Eyes.

The red glass bead represents: The apple, blood and love.

What do you think? It's nothing out of this world, I know, but I like it.  Tongue
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Suede Chokers and Bracelet on: November 18, 2008 02:11:09 PM
I have decided to take up jewelry-making and here are some simple pieces I created using suede cord. The clasps are simple: looped suede and a wooden bead to hook it over, making them super easy to put on and take off.

The first one is the I Heart Sailing Necklace, for the sailing enthusiast. I have a thing for nautical themes. I used chocolate-brown suede cord and followed a simple knotting formula. The charms are of a ship's steering wheel and and amethyst-colored heart.

The second necklace features a lovely seahorse charm. In some cultures, sea horses are considered good luck. My family believes this and I grew up being enchanted by seahorses. I used pink suede cord and the same knotting formula.

The bracelet is made of pink suede cord, as well, and also created with the same knotting formula and features colorful letter charms, spelling out three words that I find very important: Live, Laugh, Love. This is my philosophy for a happy life.

16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fuzzy Luv Hat on: August 04, 2008 08:28:30 PM
I made this hat a while ago, but have gotten lazy and haven't posted it here for scrutiny.

What do you guys think? I used Red Heart acrylic in bright blue and Patons nylon (which is the fuzzy multi-colored one).

The girl modeling the hat is my cousin.

I made these hats a while back, but haven't had the chance to post them up here. Let me know what you all think.  Cheesy

18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Perfect for a windy day in the city... on: May 17, 2008 08:09:59 PM
For some reason, I find that I crochet better free-hand than I do patterns. Perhaps it is because I make errors while reading patterns or I don't count correctly. In any case, I am awfully proud of this hat that I crocheted free-hand for a friend of mine.

I used 90% of a 7 ounce skein of Red Heart Country Blue acryllic yarn.

The stitches I used were single crochet and double crochet.

The red heart applique I found lying on a shelf at a craft store I visit often, and purchased it when I was told it was only 25 cents.

I hot-glued it to the hat.

What do you think?

19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Headbands and Hair Barrettes (Pic Heavy) on: May 14, 2008 06:35:49 PM
Ok, so the flowers on the headbands and barrettes are crocheted. They're not extravagant, but I rather like how they turned out as a whole with the embellishments and all. What do you guys think?

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Two different hats... on: April 27, 2008 02:47:44 PM
Hello everyone. This is my first post.

I recently took up crocheting as a hobby and I love it.

Below are two different hats I just completed recently, and the two first big crochet projects I have ever taken on. Before the hats, I mainly stuck to friendship bracelets and such.

They aren't perfect (they have a couple of errors), but I am pretty proud of them.  I used Red Heart acrylic yarn for both. Cheesy

Let me know what you guys think.  Smiley

Thanks for reading.
