21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / spooky Halloween scene peyote bracelet on: October 14, 2014 11:43:43 PM
made for my partner in the "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap

My design combined as many Halloween tropes as possible!  Bats against a full moon, a spooky house in silhouette, creepy tree, gravestone, pumpkins, and an eerie black cat with glowing eyes!

I made some stenciled t shirts for my partner in the "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap:

I found a flowered t shirt in the local thrift store that I thought gave off a shabby chic Day of the Dead vibe and added a cool embracing skeleton couple stencil to it.  The stencil was rather a @*#%* to cut out but I liked the result.  Unfortunately I used a spray fabric paint and accidentally got some outside the stencil design itself.  I added some hearts to the area in an attempt to pass it off as intentional.   Grin

23  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / beaded Electric Mayhem bracelet on: August 21, 2014 09:38:53 PM

This is a peyote bead pattern I came up with for a Jim Henson swap a while ago.  A friend of mine is both a big Muppets fan and a musician so I decided to make one for her birthday.

24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Bride of Frankenstein peyote bracelet on: March 13, 2014 10:23:54 PM
This is a Bride of Frankenstein bracelet that I made for my partner in the recent Monster Swap.  It is done in 2 drop peyote stitch.  The design below the Bride is meant to be the mob of villagers marching through a cemetery from the original movie.  (or it could be a completely unrelated group of zombies if you aren't familiar with the film, according to a friend!   Smiley)
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fungi wreath on: March 10, 2014 12:34:31 AM
Winter is lasting forever here.  To remind myself that warmer seasons will follow, I made myself a mushroom wreath. 

The mushrooms are made from felt and the moss is crocheted yarn over a dollar store wreath.  In several months, the real things will be growing in the woods!
26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bowie ipod sleeve on: January 10, 2014 06:11:07 PM
Inspired by David Bowie's recent birthday and Nokomomo's phone sleeve that I found on pinterest, I stitched this up with felt for my antique ipod nano.  On the back, it has a flap with a button closure to keep the ipod safe.

(I hope this is the right spot to post this!   Smiley)
27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / beaded cluster bracelet on: March 29, 2013 11:25:37 PM
Just thought I'd share one of my favorite bracelets.

The two center beads are vintage beads I was drawn to at the bead store (even tho' orange is not a color I ever wear).  I beaded around them with a brick stitch and the rest of the bracelet grew organically from that start.
28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Paisley bracelet on: March 04, 2013 12:28:16 PM
I made this paisley bracelet for a bead soup swap last summer and always meant to post a picture of it here.  Since I recently came across my photo of it, I thought I'd do it now since I'm still proud of how it came out.  It was my first time working up a paisley shape with beadwork.

I love the colors on it!
29  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Johnny Depp in Dead Man on: February 26, 2013 02:24:50 PM
Dead Man  (directed by Jim Jarmusch and starring the fascinating Johnny Depp) is one of my favorite movies so I made myself a tshirt using a freezer paper stencil.  I'm not sure if I captured Johnny's handsome mug quite right but I'm still happy with the image.

This is the movie poster.  http://www.amazon.com/27x40-Johnny-Pointing-Original-Poster/dp/B000XZC83O
30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dia de los Muertos charms on: February 20, 2013 11:02:54 PM
I recently whipped up some shrink plastic charms.

Dia de los Muertos skulls, a cute cat, and a Serenity (Firefly class) charm.  I really should have done Serenity in grey and colored the space around in black.  Maybe next time.
