1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Designing Jewelry Line for a company? on: September 15, 2006 10:18:25 AM
Does anyone have experience with pricing when it comes to designing jewelry for a company? I know how to price my own pieces but if an established company wants to hire me to design a line, how much should my creativity cost them?

Sorry if this one has been covered before....
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / my abalone and pearl necklace on: August 15, 2006 03:22:38 PM
here's a necklace i made from a piece of abalone shell that i found on the beaches of northern california. i wrapped it in peyote stitch and strung it with coin pearls and seed beads. i make most of my necklaces with a bead and loop clasp, rather than a metal clasp, to give each piece a cohesive, circular design, that also creates a nice tail along the back of the neck and is adjustable.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / applique placemat into clutch on: July 30, 2005 06:48:21 PM
this is my first posting with pictures! i've wanted to make this forever and i finally got the courage to do it. my sewing skills are elementary, but i managed to pull it off. i used cotton batting in between the 40's era applique placemat and the orange lining to give a bit more shape. i added a few glass flower beads, to cover a stain on one side, then added them to the other side for symmetry. i only wish i could find more of these beautifully made placemats.

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Help with sewing circles? on: March 31, 2005 08:53:04 AM
Last night, I attempted to sew two circular pieces of fleece together and then stuff it with filling. Simple enough, you would think, but I was not pleased with my stitched circle accuracy. Anyone have any tips for me? I used a straight stich the first time and then used a narrow zig zag stitch the second time around. Both were just OK, but I know it can be done better.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Snappy sweatshirt reconstruction idea on: November 11, 2004 09:14:41 AM
huge sweatshirt into poncho.

So, i did not make this, but i just saw it on the web and thought fellow craftsters should see it.


it would even be cute as a short sleeve or half sleeve poncho

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / is it wire or is it thread? on: August 16, 2004 09:47:04 AM
I just got back from Hawaii and seeing all of the lovely flowers and foilage has insprired me to try and recreate them. I want to use fabric and wire, but I can't seem to find the wire I want to use. I don't even know if it's catagorized as a thread or a wire. It's a thin wire, coated in thread, so it bends and keeps its shape. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks bunches,
the rock receptionist

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / lacquering vegetable slices and other things on: May 12, 2004 11:39:27 AM
i'm designing a purse and thought it would be cool to make lacquered honey comb buttons. i see honey comb at farmers markets, does anyone have experience lacquering such items? it would need to be safely sealed, as to not attract any bee friends, or "bee" sticky.

i love visiting this site! crafty people rule!
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / fabric question on: February 05, 2004 10:38:13 AM
hello fellow crafty ones,
i want to sew something but i'm not sure what kind of fabric would work for what i envision. i want to create some pouches for using in the clothesdryer, filled with dried herbs to make my clothes smell extra nice, without harsh perfumes or chemicals. i want them to be reusable, but not necessarily refillable.

what type of fabric are dryer sheets made of? would muslin work?

i must say that i thoroughly enjoy visiting this site on a daily basis. it is filled with inspiring people and projects.
