1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Tons of new stuff (13 pics) on: May 29, 2008 11:03:59 AM
Thank you so much for all of your nice comments!

very very cute, i especially like the heart and sparrow necklaces. were the sparrows made using shrinky dink? i really like them all--nice job!

They were actually made with resin, a transparency, and some paint pens.

i love the hello necklace and the fortune cookie change purse, very clever.
how did you make the necklace?

The necklace was made the same way that the sparrow one was.
We love resin with transparencies  Cheesy

I love the diamond'y earrings! Is that embroidery thread in the bangle?

Yup!  Haha I got these colors that I absolutely loved together but couldn't think of anything to embroider.  So I made this instead!

So for my and my friend's senior project at school, we collaborated and made a line of jewelry and some accessory-type things.  I'm really proud of how it all turned out, and I wanted to share. 

A different angle of the bangle

Here is a hairclip with the picture taken from the front

And from the back

This is a small fortune cookie change purse.  The fortune reads "in bed"

Here it is from the back with the zipper opened, showing the houndstooth lining

Thank you so much for looking.  Comments and criticisms are always appreciated!

I don't think this dress requires a lot of explanation.  I made it with a McCall's pattern (I don't remember the pattern number) with some variations.  It was supposed to be about knee-length, but I decided that I won't have too many occasions in life where it is appropriate to wear a floor-length red silk dress, so I might as well take advantage of this one  Grin .  Also, I accidentally added a little wrinkly bit on the sash part, which I then ended up really liking, so I kept it.  Oh, and I don't have any pictures of the back, but I crossed the straps.  On to the awkward preprom pictures   Wink .

Full length shot (I'm the one in the red):

This one sort of shows a close-up of the bodice:

And just for fun...:

Comments always appreciated!

Wow! Yay brains!  I'd be interested to see what you do to make it into a necklace. Also, what made you choose that view of the brain? I like it, just wondered  Smiley

Well, I had this idea (that I still might do) of coloring it in using a pretty-looking PET scan of activity in the underside of the brain.  I can't decide whether I still want to do that or want to leave it plain.  What do you guys think?

Because I'm a (not so) closeted nerd, I have a total fascination with the brain, how it works, etc.  So, this is an embroidery that I did that will eventually be part of a piece of jewelry.  Because it's going to be on a necklace, it had to be pretty small, which was hard for me because this is only the second real embroidery project that I've ever done, so I had some trouble with the details.  However, I am happy with the results and can't wait for my supplies to arrive in the mail to make it into a pendant.

And now, on to my one picture that I was able to take before my camera ran out of batteries.  The picture is with a dime for size reference.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you so much for the nice comments, guys!  I actually had no idea that someone was selling fortune cookie change purses on etsy.  And here I thought I was being creative  Tongue.  Oh,  well!

So ever since I made a little fortune cookie out of Sculpey, I've been a little obsessed with the shape.  I don't know why, but I just think that they're the cutest things ever!  Anyway, I decided to branch out and try using felt to make it, originally intending to make a little plushie thing.  Instead, I decided to make a little purse.  This one doesn't really hold that much, because it's very small, but it's enough to hold a little spare change for the laundromat/parking meter/etc.  I was trying to come up with what to embroider for the end of the fortune (I was going to do lucky numbers) when I thought of that game of adding "in bed" to the end of any fortune cookie fortune.  If you've never tried it, do it sometime.  Instant comedy.  Anyway, so because I have the sense of humor of a thirteen-year old boy, I decided to embroider "in bed" onto the end of the fortune sheet.  OK, enough talk.  Here are some pictures.

As always, any comments would be appreciated.  Thanks for looking!
