I love the way they look very organic. It looks more like they sort of grew there, like a tree.

Tres jolie! I want one as a cell phone charm.

The "aimer" part is called a sight.

Are those dried plums (AKA prunes)?

I would stitch in a cat in that window so that it would look like open shutters; besides, no house is truly home until there's a kitty in the front window!

Thanks for the constructive advice, you've definitely hit on my main beef with this thing. It just doesn't look as precise as I would like it to. Eventually I'll scale that mountain and go from "obviously home made" to "definitely well made". My normal crafty drug of choice is cross stitch, so sinking my teeth into something more tactile was a lot of fun and I'll be continuing with this. Practice makes perfect right?

For those of you who aren't familiar with Norse mythology, Mjolnir is the legendary Hammer of Thor. It was a war weapon but also it was invoked symbolically to sanctify home and marriage. I love mythology I wanted my own Mjolnir pendant. Traditionally, it is made to look something like the ones on this page:

They are usually made for men to wear, and didn't really suit my tastes. So I got up my courage and decided to make one. I've never used beads in crafts before, I've never done anything with wire and I've never made jewelry before.  What I ended up with is this:

I like the colors, and the idea, but unfortunately it's not very well done. Eh well, I'll keep trying and maybe eventually I'll make a new one.

Those are adorable.

And as a fat chick myself, I'm so proud of you for not being afraid to be seen!

You know how at all thrift stores they have the white fake milkglass vases? They usually cost about 50 cents. Buy up all the bud vases you can find, and use them to make arrangements from daisies that you can buy for about $10/dozen from the florist.

If you aren't set on a traditional church wedding, you can rent a local art gallery for the evening and have your officiant perform the ceremony there, followed by a cocktail hour. You won't have to decorate at all, because it's already full of art. I live in Pittsburgh and plan to rent the Warhol museum for my wedding; it seems expensive at first blush but you're getting your wedding venue, reception venue and decorations all taken care of at once. A DJ for atmospheric music, officiant and some food and you're done!

@ seamlessgem, I love offbeatbride.com!

An old cosplay trick for making large pieces of cartoony jewelry which are cheap and wearable is to carve it out of soap and then paint it. It makes it nice and light and if you don't like the result, at least soap is only like 50 cents a bar.
