All of these are great!  The choker looks like it could be worn from the front or back.  I especially love the crochet scroll.

Yes, as a matter of fact, you can wear it either way Smiley very versatile. Thanks! the crochet scroll is very convenient when you want to keep your hooks organize.

Cute stuff, and it doesn't look like beginner's projects at all!

Hehe, thanks! I tried & failed a bunch of times...it's quite frustrating because I keep losing count and end up having to do a few rows/stitches.

I like your chokers. I would like to make them.


You can find the choker and the scroll in the crochet book called "Get Hooked Again" by Kim Werker. Get book to get on Amazon for like $5-$10!

so cute! Great work! love the star, and choker necklaces. 

Thank you Cheesy

Very nice!  Cheesy Where did you find the pattern for the star?

I searched up on google for the pattern for the star...just type in "free star crochet patterns" & plenty of links will pop up for you to experiment with your yarn.

So, I am a beginner at crochet...I learned from my parent's friend who was kind enough to teach me for one weekend (2 days) all of the crocheting basics. With the given knowledge, I started researching for basic crochet projects at the library as well as going online & started experimenting on my own...& these are my finished projects as of today Smiley ENJOY!!!!

i love your interpretation.
actually, i like it better than the original. i think it's overrated doesn't look that great in real life. (in relation to his other works  Wink)

Oh wow thanks! hahaha this piece actually made it into the art gallery at my school (SJSU) so I'm real proud of it. The hard part is to keep the pieces intact...

This is lovely. Klimt is a fav and the patience you have is wonderful. If you ever have a chance to see his work in person don't pass it up. You will appreciate the detail and depth of his creations. I also think he would have loved this site since he made his own "frocks" too. Cheesy Whatchya makin' next?

hahah thanks. It took sooo many hours and long nights for this project...
I have no idea what I'm making next, whatever inspires me I guess...xD

This was made entirely from paper cut outs with a pair of scissors and a sharp box cutter. I put glitter on for effects...it took me about one week.

She's pretty, she's sweet, and now she's my angel!
(The word "Devil" was put because my teacher wanted opposites. If you were going to draw a devil, you would have to write angel and so on...)

I drew this using chalk pastels and my fingers for blending. It is 30'' x 45" big and it took me two days to complete  Tongue


9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / How I put plaster gauze to use on: January 25, 2010 12:34:39 AM
This was made for a 3-D college class project.

Basically, you go to your nearest dollar store and purchase a glass or plastic item, go home and make a SEPARATE front and back side of the item out of plaster gauze, let it sit, then connect the two sides with a thin strip of gauze so they can connect.

Let it dry completely, then paint accordingly to the real item.

Then you go back to the same dollar store and put the fraud item on the shelf. Whoever picks it up will wonder why it is there and etc. Leave the fraud item there and let whatever happens to it happens...this is a way of contributing art to society.

The main idea of this project is that people today are too into consumer goods. We buy what is convenient and we do not realize the artistic value behind the item, how they were made and how each item is special. So when the fraud item is put up, it will make people wonder about the art behind it...either that or they will just shrug and walk away, not understanding the idea behind it.

This took me about three weeks to make...so ENJOY!

10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Mommy, I want that cardboard chair! on: January 25, 2010 12:19:53 AM
So how about a chair for your house? Better yet, a cardboard chair??

I made this out of pure cardboard for a 3-D class project. It is a 3.5 feet tall concept chair, made only for looks not for your butt.

I used big cardboard that you can buy at your local home depot, a box cutter, hot glue gun, tons of patience, and as for the cardboard with the words on them, I went dumpster diving behind my local GAMESTOP.

I carefully sketched out the design that I want my chair to be, drew the sides of the chair on a big piece of paper, and then taped it on the cardboard and begin cutting eight of the chairs' sides, four stacked up on each side so it can be somewhat sturdy.

Then I measured and cut out about 40+ rectangular shapes to fit in with my chair...slits first of course.

And all that's left is to assembled the chair. You don't need glue to put the rectangles in the slits, it should just fit right in, but as for the thickness of the chair, it's best to put your hot glue gun to use.

Hope that helps. It took me about a month to finish this project. It's time consuming, but it will definitely wow people! Heck, why not take it to the next level and make your whole living room out of cardboard?
