2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Carved Grateful Dead Bead on: May 24, 2010 12:44:51 PM
So.. life pretty much revolves around The Dead. Naturally, then, my jewelry and art does as well.

I've been trying to do a miniature carving of the skull for so long, and I've finally gotten one I'm happy with - and its about the size of a dime!!

I used ivory polymer clay and carved it free-handed before I baked the bead. After it cooled, I rubbed black acrylic paint into the grooves to give it more dimension. I didn't seal it, I kind of like the way it looks without any shine.

What do you think?

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Free Winona on: April 26, 2010 08:57:35 AM
So Winona Ryder. I kind of love her. So when my friend the photography major told me she needed me to be Winona for a photo shoot I was pretty (read:VERYVERYVERY) excited.

Those are the pictures used to base the shirt/photo shoot off of. She said for me to just wear a white shirt and she'd photoshop the graphic on, but will a crafty girl allow that? NO WAY. So with only three hours notice before the shoot, I skipped class to make the shirt.

First, I had no plain white shirt, so I took two old white tees and cut them apart, and sewed the backs and sleeves together. Then I freehanded the graphic and painted it on. While it dried I did my hair and ran to the studio.

Thats a picture from our photo shoot. Look similar?
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Geometric Ring on: April 26, 2010 08:33:59 AM
I've had two shops this week reply and said they were interested in carrying my jewelry (YAY!!) so I've been making all sorts of stuff non-stop, finally turning all of the sketches from my notebook into real pieces. I made this ring, but I can't decide if I like it.

What do you guys think? Its 7/8" long, and 1/2" tall. The main frame is 18g copper, the thinner wire is a 28g gold, and the beads are tan wood.

(Also, sorry for the bad pic quality, I just did them on photobooth.)

Cute!  I'm sure your friends are not laughing now!

This is true! Now, everyone loves this dress!!

That was on my Facebook, and there were four more similar comments that couldn't fit into the shot  Grin I'm so happy everyone else loves this as much as I do!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / HUGE Mumu to cute summer dress! on: April 05, 2010 02:02:19 PM
Last year, I found a HUGEEEE red mumu in one of my favorite vintage shops. I tried it on and my friends laughed at me, but I bought it. There is really beautiful embroidery details on it (Some say it looks Spanish, others say Renaissance inspired?) and I hoped I could make this huge ugly tent into something cute.

Well, I brought the hem off the ground and up to above my knees, and took it in by probably at least a foot. In the bust, I tightened it to fit me perfectly, then altered the sleeves so they didn't look like they were just these ugly things hanging from my shoulders. Now that I'm done, its one of my favorite dresses, and I get compliments on it all the time!

Sorry I don't have any before pictures, I got started on it right away and forgot to take pictures before  Lips sealed And also, excuse the state of my room. Its currently the storage/craft space, but about to be turned into a nursery (hence the primer on the floor).

The front of the dress.

Beautiful sleeves!! They are so much fun Smiley

What do you all think? Any comments or questions are welcome Smiley

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! I've been wanting to make a dress with Dead bear appliques for a long time, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do it like that! How do you make them look so perfect?

Really great job on both the fabric and the dress itself! Such a cool idea to use all of those little dangerous objects to make up the roses. Little details like that are what really makes clothing special, personal. I also think its just too cute how sweet and demure the dress itself is, like as if the danger is hidden like its little secret.
