81  Mexican-style votive holders in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 28, 2005 07:27:28 AM
I made these the other day and I'm trying to decide- rhinestones or no?  I love the kitschy effect but not sure if it makes them look more bootleg.  Plus, my style tastes run more towards simple than flashy.  But I may sell them, so that may not matter.

**please ignore the single missing rhinestone, it just fell off  Tongue

Without rhinestones:

82  Re: record cuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 26, 2005 06:49:43 PM
Okay, so I recently found out that cutting these records is waaay more difficult than I imagined.  Of course, I also have a really crappy x-acto, but still.  So I ended up giving up after cutting one edge off the record.  I meant to make a simple cuff, but since I had to bend it weird to fit, the other side ended up looking way more interesting.  All in all, I"m pretty happy with the results, but I don't think I'll be doing it again too soon.

*if you go to the picture hosting site, the pictures are smaller and will be much more clear.


Here's the cool side:

And the boring side:

83  found objects charm bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 24, 2005 10:51:22 AM
I keep saving random beads or single earrings with the hopes that one day they will become useful.  Usually this means that I hoard a lot of crap, but this time I actually did manage to make use of some of them!  I wrapped 20-gauge wire around a knitting needle to make the links and then attached my pretty things.  My favorite charm is the teeny plastic puma that came off of my roommate's shoe!  (yeah, he thinks I'm weird but at least he indulges me  Cheesy)

84  Seor Saguaro jewelry holder in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 15, 2005 11:05:52 PM
I have been looking for a good way to store my earrings and rings for a while, since I already have my necklaces and bracelets up on corkboard on my wall.  I wanted something very different from a square screen, so I finally came up with this:

Of course the webcam doesn't do it justice, but here it is!  I made the main body out of tinfoil and covered it with modeling clay, then poked holes in the sombrero to make space for earrings.  HIs arms are for storing rings.  Of course, I don't have that many pairs, so the small size is ok.  If you have more, you could just make a bigger one!  (This guy is about 5 inches tall, including the hat).

I recently went to the Salvador Dali exhibit in Philadelphia, and the ticket had this sweet pic of Dali on it.  Instead of buying a souvenir, I decided to make my own!  I'm planning on making this into a pin, since I don't have any even though I love the way they look.  What an easy, fun, and good looking craft idea!

Sorry for the insanely blurry pic, I have to use my webcam for now until I get Photoshop.

I decided it's too hard to see the bracelet lying down, so here's an action shot:

87  Urban Outfitters bracelet remake in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 13, 2005 07:35:47 PM

I went shopping with my sister at Urban the other day, and she almost bought a bracelet that looked a whole lot like this.  But I told her I could do it myself pretty easily.  The most annoying part was making each of the eye pins (the bracelet isn't exactly even, but you can't really tell), as well as figuring out how to make the two separate end pieces connect (see clasp).  In the original bracelet, the wires were connected by a solid bar at the ends instead of two pieces, but whatever, this was all I could find on short notice.

The only problem is that now I want it for myself!  For some reason, I really enjoy the sensation of cold, heavy stones on my wrist.  Does anyone else know what I"m talking about?  Anyway, here's some pics:

88  Team Zissou Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 04, 2005 03:52:27 PM
My heart literally sped up when I saw some of the amazing Life Aquatic projects, and I had to make something as soon as I saw them!  I had been meaning to use up these adorable seahorse beads somehow, and suddenly this seemed perfect!  I wanted to wait until I found a mini champagne glass to put them in, but my addiction got the best of me and I just couldn't wait.

If you want a quick little tute, I basically just strung three 1" beads on a wire.  Then I strung three 1/2" beads to the left and bent the wire into the first small Z.  I curled the edge of the wire against the opening of the bead to keep the beads on without being able to see anything.  Then I formed the large Z around the little Z.  Three more of the 1/2" beads went on to the right of the big Z.  I formed this Z from the bottom up and curled the wire in a little loop again.

I threaded a length of Nymo through the top of the big Z (although I'm sure you could use fishing line, and it would keep in touch with the nautical theme!)  I simply tied it to the earring (should have used a jump ring, but I'm lazy) and hung on the seahorses.

Yay Team Zissou!  This is my first completed project post, and it just took me about an hour to figure out all this crazy electronic stuff, so I hope this works!
