41  Green With Envy (Pic fatty) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by How Lovely on: January 31, 2010 07:03:36 PM
I've been admiring everyones beautiful, chunky charm bracelets and I've been very envious! Green with envy in fact Smiley So I pulled out every green bead I could find in my stash and this is what I came up with. Two little bracelets They were originally going to be one bracelet but I put the owl one together first and by the time I'd added all the owls it was really heavy! So I decided on two so as not to overload the chain. Onto the pictures, some closeups and overviews.

I made the little polymer clay bead Smiley

And seeing as I'm posting about green I'll also post my beloved owl necklace! I made this guy a couple of months ago, the owls are double sided. I wear it to work a lot, I work at a cafe, and there isn't a day he doesn't get a compliment Smiley The best was when a lady who was screaming and yelling at me about her food taking too long suddenly stopped, mid rant, to ask where my necklace was from because she loved it and wanted one

42  Not so innocent boudoir (Tiny bit of mature content) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by How Lovely on: January 30, 2010 05:37:03 AM
I saw this challenge only a couple of days ago and had to take part! This is my first one, so sorry if anything is posted wrong etc. And there's probably way too many embellishments not enough paper, but thought I'd share anyway!

I decided to make a matchbox for my boyfriend that revealed a little bit of my own nature Smiley All sweetness and innocence on the outside but a little bit darker on the inside. As a friend once told me, "You're sweet... Like too much sugar in your tea". On to the pictures of my little boudoir!

The Outside:

The Inside:

The bed is an origami heart. The dressing table is a scrap of pretty left over scrapbooking paper.
The fireplace: Brown paper and beads

Haha, it really is that wonky!

The mirror is a coin I polished up from when I went to the UK. And the pot plants are wire and wooden beads.

The rug is handmade silk paper (sadly not by me, by my old textiles teacher, but if anyone is interested I can post a link to the instructions.)

I made the box myself from cardstock. I think I enjoyed making the box the best! I made a few more in different patterned papers.

Oh yeah, and the secret!! Kept where all good secrets are of course, under the bed!

Haha there are some naughty little stick figure drawings inside, but they're not really that good and I wasn't sure how to mark them mature content. But you get the idea.

43  Darling! An odd little pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by How Lovely on: September 19, 2009 03:14:02 AM
This is Darling:

He was my first go at anything 3D in polymer clay, I don't really know what he is Smiley Some people say a cat, others say an elf or a gremlin. I just call him Darling:)
And his back with the bobbly tail:

Unfortunately I wasn't aware of the way dust loves to stick to clay at the time! Its a bit grotty, but mistakes are how you learn, right?

C&C and guesses as to what he is very welcome.

44  Octopi Pendant: a few pics in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by How Lovely on: September 19, 2009 02:33:24 AM
I'm still pretty new to polymer clay, working it out slooowly Smiley These are my octopus pendants.

My first one hangs on a blue leather cord:

I'm not sure if it's clear in the photos but his tentacles are a mix of blue and green:

He's flat backed but the tentacles stand up quite a bit.

The second octopus is a blue clay mixed with black with little yellow suckers, I saw a similar pendant a couple of years ago but I can't remember the site! If you know it please let me know so I can give credit, as I remember it was a cool pendant!

At the time I was thinking about making a blue ring octopus, a tiny creature that lives here in Australia in rockpools, highly toxic! I think you have about 3 minutes to live after a bight! Unfortunately I didn't have enough yellow so I had to invert the colours, maybe next time:

And a flat view to see the tentacles: I intend to hang him on a darker blue leather one day Smiley

C&C very welcome.

45  Steampunk? Vintage? New Necklace! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by How Lovely on: September 12, 2009 04:42:52 AM
So I was feeling so inspired by finally signing up for craftster the other night that i needed to make something. So I went through all my boxes and realised I really don't have much at the moment! But I did find a couple of old, maybe vintage brooches that I had bought at St. Vinnies ages ago and a locket I'd picked up in the sale bin at my local craft store. I removed the back sharp brooch bits with a pair of pliers... Didn't want them to come undone whilst wearing. Ouch!

I've been loving all the steampunk pieces lately so I thought I'd do my own take on... Hope this counts Smiley

Unfortunately all the little crystals had been lost out of the ribbon brooches by their previous owner, but I still love them!

Sorry about the slightly blurred pics!

C&C very very welcome!

46  Fruit Salad Bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by How Lovely on: September 10, 2009 02:01:39 AM
These are my fruit salad bracelets, and this is my first post! Yay!

This first one is my strawberry bracelet, made out of Polymer clay for the charms and 'silver' chain. Half the strawberries I baked onto straight pins, which they immediately fell off of so I had to superglue them back on, the other half I made on a pin with a 90 degree angle, which didn't look as good as I had to mold them on the pin so they lost a bit of detail.

And this is my actual Fruit Salad Bracelet:

I had to superglue these too... He he, and accidentally glued my fingers together on the raspberry! Roll Eyes The bf and his friend had to cut my fingers apart with scissors, ouch!

Thanks for looking Smiley
