11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Lacking closure [Edit - Pics added] on: September 04, 2011 01:35:56 AM
So, I recently made a small chainmaille wristlet.  It's just big enough for my ID, some cash and whatever change I may get for days that my purse is just too much.  My problem is, I don't have any zippers thin enough to fit the project.  Like, my doll clothes zippers are too wide for this baby.  Since the plan since I started it (Over a month ago, wow!) was to use a zipper, I am sort of at a loss for what to do.  I'd planned for this to be a fair/party/concert type deal, so I need it to be secure and hold everything in.  I'm less worried about change falling out than losing my ID or cash, but I'd still like something fairly secure.  Also: With the rings I'm using, a flap doesn't seem to be plausible, the rings are too tight to fold over.  I'll add pics when I get them, but any ideas?

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / earrings for ripped ears. on: August 19, 2011 05:16:16 PM
Prototype earring bases for my friend's mother.  She ripped her ear lobe and in order to wear earrings they have to be a bit wide with a wide back so she can pinch them on.  She's asked me to make her some earrings and these are what I've come up with.  Oh, and also a fishy charm.  For luck.  Or something.  Questions?  Comments?  Suggestions?  Waffles?

And more designs! (Have an order for five pairs, now I'm working on designs. =])
