1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Dalek T-Shirt on: February 10, 2013 11:33:01 PM
well I have been "quarantined" for the last week and a half with tonsilitis, so I have been trying to keep myself busy.  Along with my husband, my nephew is the biggest Dr Who nerd out there (well my hubby did teach him everything he knows!)  For his 13th bday, I have made the following t-shirt.  Well I didn't make the t-shirt itself, it is store-bought, but the dalek and wording were my addition - completed with t-shirt vinyl.  of course hubby got one too - but his is a green tshirt.  Feedback welcome!

Ok, My hubby is the biggest nerd.  He wanted a vinyl "family" for the back window of his car.  But of course it had to be something nerdy! lol.  This is our Dalek family and two K9s.  My circles on the Daleks aren't perfectly round, but you can tell what they are!  Feedback welcome!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Dalek Cushion - 1st attempt at sewing in a long time! on: December 22, 2012 10:57:33 PM
Hi All!

My nephew is the biggest Doctor Who nerd (after my hubby of course!), so I decided to have a go at doing a Dalek cushion for his bed.  I set up my sewing machine and realise I have forgotten how to sew!  Anyway, after 3 attempts and several hours, I present my finished Dalek cushion complete with a zip and some basic piping around the edge!  Feedback welcome!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Learning to Solder - Pendants and Earrings on: July 22, 2011 04:20:19 AM
Hi all!  I have been a long time lurker, and have finally worked up the bravery to post some of my work!

I have been teaching myself to solder.  I've been using sterling silver wire, sheet solder and a small butane torch (the type chefs use).  Please excuse the bad photography.  I can't find the battery charger for my camera which takes awesome macro photos, so I had to use hubby's outdoor, shock proof and freeze proof camera which I really don't know how to use!  The pieces are sort of a slightly dark shiny silver colour and I did texture them with the round end of a chasing hammer.

First piece are earrings - 18ga sterling silver wire, pre-fabricated bezel settings, and 4mm blue topaz gemstones.

Next is a pendant with 4mm peridot, citrine and smoky quartz.  I used snap sets in this one.  Wire is 18ga.  I made the pendant itself first and wasn't sure what to hang it from, so decided it would be best served with a matching handmade bail.  I was very pleased how the bail turned out.

And finally another pendant.  This one I am still not sure on. 18ga sterling silver wire, bezel settings, 4mm and 5mm amethysts.  At this stage I am not sure whether to keep the 5mm amethyst between the teardrop and bail.  I can remove it and connect the bail directly to the loop at the top of the teardrop.  Any suggestions?

Thanks for looking!

5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / A quick introduction on: July 22, 2011 04:19:57 AM
Hi all!

I have been a long time lurker on these boards, but finally decided a few weeks ago to join Smiley

I love looking at everyone's finished projects and works in progress!  I really love looking at the swaps and what gorgeous things people receive!

I try my hand at quite a few different crafts.  All self-taught, but I am the type of person who has to give everything a try!  At the moment my number one craft is jewellery making.  I am teaching myself how to solder, but I also do chainmaille and wire sculpting.

I can't wait to be able to participate in the swaps!
