1  Fun Wire Wrapped Bangles in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by idancewithdaffodils on: February 14, 2014 01:58:59 PM

I just tried making these yesterday for something to do and now I'm hooked. I think they look so cool and they're super simple to make.  Grin

This one is crystal and ceramic beads.

This came from a lot of beads I bought off someone but I'm pretty sure they're some kind of stone dyed to be like imitation turquoise.

Glass and acrylic beads! (It's a skull in the middle, idk if you can tell in the pics..)

The trio! I hope you guys like them. Smiley

I made a tutorial here: http://thesillybaboon.blogspot.com/2014/02/wire-wrapped-bangles.html

2  Super simple earrings! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by idancewithdaffodils on: February 08, 2014 08:39:10 AM
Just whipped these up this morning. They were super simple to make and I already had all the supplies in my stash. Smiley

I used beading wire, two different sizes of silver beads and freshwater pearls.

Hope you guys like!

3  A few new sets.. in Beads: Completed Projects by idancewithdaffodils on: January 02, 2014 08:25:23 AM
Here are a few of the things I have made recently. Smiley
I'm sorry for the sort of crappy pics, I'm hoping to try to make a lightbox this weekend with my dad so that I can take some better images!

Some stackable bracelets. Jasper, agate, peridot, coral and aventurine.

A bracelet/earring set made of green opal and tigerseye.

A magnesite wrap bracelet or necklace with matching earrings.

Martha Steward Czech bead ombre bracelet and earrings.

I'm really not sure what these are! I bought them at a little bead store near me before they went out of business.
They definitely feel like some kind of stone, not plastic or glass.

Please let me know what you think!

4  Forrest Creatures... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by idancewithdaffodils on: April 28, 2013 06:27:30 AM
I've had these two charm pieces laying around FOREVER and I finally decided to make something out of them.

I kept them simple. They're designed to be long. The owl only has a simple flower-print bead on it, and the deer has a cluster of pink glass pearl beads in different shades and sizes. Smiley

Thanks for looking!

5  Item prices and shipping question. in Get Product and Website Opinions by idancewithdaffodils on: April 14, 2013 07:09:18 AM
Hey guys!

My goal is to open up an Etsy shop to list my jewelry on.. but I'm not really sure how to price it. I want to keep things affordable because I realize that most of my stuff may appeal to a younger audience. I also don't use sterling silver or genuine gold materials. I don't really have a price at which these things cost me to make because honestly, most of the materials were found in my jewelry stash that I started building years ago just to make trinkets for myself, or were recycled from other items. I'm hoping that I can clear out some of this stuff and make a little pocket change to get more/better materials. Here's some samples of the type of things I make:

Any suggestions?

Also, does anyone have any tips on calculating shipping? I plan on using a simple padded brown envelope..

Thanks so much!!

6  Necklaces galore! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by idancewithdaffodils on: April 11, 2013 07:25:46 AM
Hi guys, just wanted to share some of my new necklaces with you. Smiley

The pink set is a request from my mom, and the blue set is for the sister of the person I made my original purple set for in this post
-> https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422180.0#axzz2QAHGMOso

Also, the first picture is supposed to be the Autism awareness colors for April, but I'm not advanced enough to make puzzle pieces..

Thanks for looking!

7  Odds n Ends (somewhat pic fluffy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by idancewithdaffodils on: April 01, 2013 11:29:19 AM
Hi guys Smiley

Well I'm relatively new to the forums, I've never posted very much but I wanted to share some of my work. It's not really anything intense, especially compared to you talented lot, but I like it. Sorry for the format of some of the pictures, I post things I make on instagram.

Anyway, on to the pics!

These first two groups of earrings are ones I've made for myself personally, so some of them might be considered a little funky.. particularly my "junk" earrings. :p

The last image is a set I made for a good Friend who is going to her niece's semi-formal sweet 16 and needed some jewels to wear with her spork. Her favorite color is purple. Smiley

Thanks for looking!

8  Some of my pieces.. :D (Image fluffy!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by idancewithdaffodils on: December 20, 2010 10:27:24 AM
Hi! This is my first post on here, so go easy on me.  Cheesy

I haven't been making jewelry for that long, and I usually have to work off a cheap budget since I'm a poor ol' college student, but I still enjoy doing what I can. I especially enjoy making chainmaille things, but I never seem to have enough rings, or wire to make my own. :p I'm thinking about getting more serious and trying to produce some nicer quality things and take a chance at selling. What do you think?

Also, sorry for the not-so-good photos, I had to use my phone.

Thanks! Cheesy
