1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scalemail Gauntlet on: February 26, 2012 12:46:03 AM
Hey evey body!!  I haven't posted in a coon's age but here goes nuthin:

I was randomly surfing the web one day and I decided to look up scale mail and I found the coolest thing ever!!  I had seen where people were making chainmail with these cool dragon scales, but then I found that someone was making knit gauntlets with the scales rather then using jump rings, which can be tedious and painful, .  The etsy shop for Crystalidyll (sponser) sells knit gantlets and bracers and dice bags etc... Although her stuff rocks!!! I am poor and I can't afford her prices, so I made one.  I crocheted mine because I cant knit in the round yet. The scales can be found on ebay or www.theringlord.com and they are pretty cheap.  Anywho here is my gauntlet, I hope you like.

Tell me what you think please! Grin
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Red Hat Cat lady bracelet on: March 08, 2011 07:40:46 PM
hey y'all

This project started out kinda funny.  when I was a teen I was into acrylic nails and i used to get them done alot.  That is until i learned how to do it myself, so then I did them myself.  I eventually got tired of doing them so I quit.  Recently I found out that you could put stuff in the acrylic like glitter and what not and there are also molds that make it so much easier to do.  anywho, I decided to start doing them again and I made a set ahead of time using the new molds I bought and they ended up being too small for my nails.  Granted I was sad but then I figured why not use them like beads so I drilled holes in them and made a bracelet.

and its reversible

Hey yall,  I know that Valentines is about a month away but why not start early.  I've always been a huge fan of Vampires and due to the boon in popularity I decided to do some photo Manipulation and make a new facebook profile for the Holiday.  I have never been fond of Valentines day so instead it's Vampire's Day.  Besides what's better then all the fluttering hearts around the holiday...hehehehe Grin

Anywho thanx for looking  Kiss
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Beaded Spider Victorian Amulet Bag on: January 07, 2011 12:02:25 AM
Hey everyone,  well here it is my victorian inspired amulet bag.  When I saw this challenge I was excited because I love to do things that are almost beyond my abilities.  Anyhow, The bag itself is peiced and beaded and the spider is amigurumi with beads and her legs are copper wire that is coil on both ends to sew them in place.  I hope that you all like it, i'm pretty happy with it and I was actually suprised that the legs stand up on it. Even when it's hanging.

Here it is

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ombre!! on: August 16, 2010 10:15:18 PM
So I bought a white danskin jacket and DYED!  I found out that good ole RIT dye is not so good for that.  But that's ok because Tulip saved my life and my jacket!!  So through a painstaking process I finally came up with what I wanted.

First I sprayed the dye on and did everything right, then I washed it and It was salmon pink!!! not red to white ARG!!!!

Then I Bleached it, neutralized it and re-dyed it by setting half in a bowl.

After that I Hand washed each section and sprayed it of with a hose outside and then washed it again.  Then I hung it to dry.  I think I'll hand wash until I know for sure that all the dye is out.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / BRAINNNSSS!!! on: August 16, 2010 10:00:47 PM

Shortly after Halloween last year I saw a posting of a resin casted brain necklace so of course I had to try it myself.  I found some gummy brains and the package they were in were shaped too.  I got the Idea though to hang something over the mold so that it made a hole on the back of the brain so I could make it like a diarama. So I put a cute little zombie baby in it. AWWWW so cute and hungry for BRaIIIIIINNNNSS!!

Hi all!!

I was goin through my stash the other day and I found a few leftover spider squares.  So I decided to make some arm warmers.  I also recently taught myself how to knit, so I incorperated some basic knitting on them for the stripes. and finished with some lovely red buttons from my long deceased great grandma's stash.
