Super Cute! I just saw a necklace done with black ribbon at Macy's for around $30. I love the idea of shear ribbon.

Basic tutorial. It is really not hard.

I use a bowl (ceramic from walmart) and fill it half way with water.
Then I fold a thick paper towel several times so that is mostly submerged and place a the sea glass on it.
The drill tip i use is one from the set. Nothing special. Just try them out to see what works best.
I use a knock off brand dremel to start drilling, going about half way.
I flip it over and hold it up to see the hole started on the other side and mark it with a pencil.
Then drill through.

Thats it. I've only broken once piece because I got lazy.

**Just make sure to change your water after a bit. It gets hazy and hard to see what you are doing.

I have been experimenting with sea glass jewelry. I get the sea glass from my cousin who is lucky enough to go to a private beach in the Bahamas (i hate her). She does bring me awesome things back. I may start selling some at a local market.

I tend to keep most designs simple, but that is getting boring. I  may branch out.

5  COOKING / Dessert / Re: spotty cakes on: February 27, 2009 07:27:13 AM
Those are too cute. Those are really different from the ones here (U.S) where there is more icing than cake.

As far a gel food coloring I saw some on amazon 12 for $19 bit pricey. If I wasn't on a diet I'd have to try some


Happy cooking!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My woven strip clutch on: August 02, 2008 08:49:19 PM
I love this bag. It was my first attempt. I have not yet used it due a stinking operation (sometimes whomps being a girl) that has forced me to be a hostage in my house for two weeks. I'll use it when I make my trip to my post-op appointment.

I used pages from an Interview magazine. It works greats because the pages are bigger than a normal mag.
When I folded up the sides I reinforced them. Don't want it to split.

I used a button as a closure, but I am probably going to add a couple of magnets for a cleaner look.

7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: birth control cases on: August 02, 2008 08:43:33 PM
I was just chunking my old in the recycling bin. I have to go fish it out. I love the idea of organizing your needles in them. Mines the "triple decker" and would go great for sorting different size needles. Awesome!!

For some reason those Vera Bradleyish bags irritate me, but this is too cool.

I did a cool woven purse with the strips and take (I need to post it). The other one KJANDJORDAN mentioned is the gum wrapper chain one that if you use magazines the ink comes off. Here's the link http://candywrapperpurse.blogspot.com/.

It takes a while but really cool.

Thanks for the post about using a candle. I wanted to try it out and did not have a heat gun. Awesome beads!
