11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Laced rose bracelet on: June 30, 2010 03:25:44 AM
This bracelet is made for Christy Nelson's monthly challenge, where we get different supplies each month and have to do something crafty with it. The supplies we received this month was glitter paper, pill bottle, clay, raffia and favour cup to use. When I received the package I had no idea what to do with it, until I got the idea to make a necklace.

After gluing together the raffia I began to make a macram necklace, making a favour cup bow, glitter paper rose and clay beads with melted plastic bottle pieces attached to them. What I ended up with was OK, but I didn't like it, so I ripped it apart and began again. (If anyone want to see how my first attempt looks like you can see it on my blog)

For my second attempt I used some extra thread, since it was almost impossible to reuse all the raffia. I also had to make smaller beads, since the first ones was a bit too big for a bracelet. When I was done braiding the thread with the beads and added the rose and changed the paper bow to leafs, I sew on the lace and ribbon and then I was done. I really like it, and will probably try to make another one with different material later.

12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / May challenge - plant deco on: May 26, 2010 02:34:41 PM
Have anyone heard about Christy Nelson's monthly challenge? We get a package every month and then we have until the end to make one craft project with the supplies she provided. It is my first month but I think I did well.
This month we had leather straps, mirrors, floral wire, wreath and styrofoam beads.

I bend the wire into flowers, I blued the leather to the flowers and the mirror, and I put the styrofoam beads into the oven so it would shrink, something I experimented with, hoping it would melt, but it didn't.

I'm not sure what it's called but it's something you add to the plants to decorate it, does anyone know the name of it?


What do you think? It's the first time I have tried to do something like this.
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Red, white and blue on: May 22, 2010 03:33:56 PM
So this is my first post on Craftster, I decided that it's time for me to show what I like to try out.

17th May was the Norwegian Constitution Day, and this year I decided to try something new.

I used glass beads, small plastic beads, pearls, all in the three colours of my country's flag, and wire, a lot of wire.
