1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone seen these? on: November 29, 2011 04:24:58 PM
Has anyone seen where these awareness ribbon findings can be purchased? I have tried both Fire Mountain and Rio Grande to no avail.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / is it still usable? on: January 21, 2011 09:50:11 AM
I shredded some paper to make my own and placed it in water according to some instructions I found online. Well..... It taken me some time to collect my other supplies ( primarily a cheap working blender that I can devote to the project) and now the watery paper has turned brown. My first thought is that this might lend a kinda cool antiqued look to the paper, but I am not sure if it can still be used. Thoughs?
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / calculating length of wire needed on: October 21, 2010 01:02:21 PM
I had an idea this morning to make ornaments of nylon wire wrapped around sodering wire and placed across the interior free space with beads strung on it. The best way to describe them is that they would look sort of like a tree shaped abacus. This is the first time that I have tried to make something without a pattern and I am not sure how to figure out how much wire I would need. Any help would be appreciated, even if its a link to a thread on this topic that I missed in my search.
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Byzintine chain on: March 06, 2010 10:27:54 AM
I previously made a 4-in-1 with this size ring, but it did not hold up. So I took it apart and made a byzintine chain instead. Since it was not really a reconstuction I figured it best to put the pictures here:

Sorry for the last pic, not sure why could not get a good close up.

C&C always apriciated.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / screwback posts on: February 04, 2010 12:56:55 PM
My friend works in healthcare and prefers to only wear screwback post earrings because of this. I have been wanting to make her some earrings as a preasent, but I have had a hard time finding these findings either online or in brick and mortar stores. I've looked around the site, but what I have found is not what need as what I get is a type of clip that allows you to adjust the clips pressure on your ear like a vice, and what I need is a post for a pirced ear that is threaded so that the back screws on like a wing nut. Maybe I am not calling it the right thing? The jeweler that I used to work for had them and that was what he called them. ( I would ask him, but I lost contact with him when he retired) Does anyone have any ideas as where I can get my hands on some of these?  
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my chainmaile (pic heavy) on: September 15, 2009 09:26:22 PM
Though I dabble in a few different things. Chainmaille ( and soon hopfully wirework) appears to be what I like the best, mostly because it is portable and something that I can stop and start, which I can't say for candles or lotion. Here is what I have done so far.

orbital chain

camelot chain

What my instructor called the oops chain, though it probably has a more formal name

Chainmaile with bicones


A choker I made with the start of a 4 by 1. This did not last long because shortly after the rings started to slip out of eachother.

Which brings me to my question. Anybody got any ideas on what to do with all these 4mm 20 gauge rings I have lying around? I've started on a byzantine that seems to be working but given the number I have I would love other ideas as well.
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Rub Ons on: August 16, 2009 09:44:50 AM
anyone have a good place to by Rub Ons? I love using them for crafting but the Michael's near me has such a limited selection.
8  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / My first glass on: August 13, 2009 04:28:18 PM
I made this a few months ago with alot of help from an instructor for a Intro to Glass blowing here in Chicago. Can't say that I am hooked as of yet but I can't wait to go back this fall to make ball ornaments
