1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Resin and Scrabble Tile Reversible Bracelets on: December 18, 2010 08:38:58 PM
Well pretty much the title says it all. These bracelets are made out of scrabble tiles. The outside has images/charms covered in resin and the insides all spell something.

Cows spell GOT MILK on the inside

Golden Girls (Blanche is on there too, you just can't see her)


Blue and black

Wild at Heart

Leap Frog


Messy Heart

Goodnight Moon

The cat's meow

And a big clump of bracelets
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Challenge 1: Sea Spoon Pendant on: February 10, 2010 07:17:06 PM
I made this pendant from an actual soup spoon. It has a bit of blue paper layered over a sea green background, then just added bits of chain and pearls and covered the entire spoon with resin. That's pretty much it  Grin

Have been playing around again with resin and spoons. Although my favorite are the large round soup spoons, have also found out how cute and little souvenir spoons are for pendants.

Soup spoons:

Small souvenir spoons:

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Resin and Spoons on: November 05, 2008 07:59:11 AM
I am always looking for things to put in resin or to put resin in . . . and I have lately been obsessed with making resin spoon pendants. They are the perfect size - I particulary love round soup spoons and little tiny souvenir spoons. Anyhow, here are some pics of my tons and tons of spoons (my friends always find me at the thrift store by following the sound of a hundred spoons clanging together):

From a show in Atlanta:

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dollar Tree Jewelry Necklace on: May 09, 2008 11:49:50 AM
The bird is from the dollar store as are the pink beads from a couple of necklaces they had in their jewelry section. The round piece with the two pink flowers is actually one of a pair of dollar store earrings that I poured resin over and added to the necklace. I like the way it came out over all.  Wink

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lounge Lizard on: July 20, 2007 09:04:04 AM
I don't know if this is technically reconstructed or not, but since it used to once be alive . . .

This lizard died of unknown causes - just so you know I don't make a habit of going out and killing small animals for jewelry. I found iton my front porch completely mummified. (In case you don't live in Florida, this is a common thing - lizards and giant cockroaches are two important things they leave out of the Florida tourist flyers.)

So instead of sweeping him into the bin, I thought hey, necklace? So he is encased in resin forever and ever and maybe even longer. I made the background pink because it seemed more cheery for a dead lizard.


7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Watch Out Bracelet on: July 12, 2007 12:05:39 PM
I have had these watches forever that I have dragged with me across 7 states, determined that I would eventually figure out something to do with them. I finally figured something out - a watch bracelet!  Cheesy None of the watches actually work, but oh well, now it can always be 5:00. There is a lobster clasp to close the bracelet (I didn't actually get a pic of that part). Well enjoy.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / The Gummi Bear Bracelet Not Actually Made from Gummi Bears on: August 15, 2006 03:40:16 PM
No, its made from the amazing Castin Craft brand resin that has been colored and poured into a gummi bear shaped mold.  They make me want to lick my wrist. But I probably wont. Probably. Anyhow . . .

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The 10 Month Dress Project on: June 22, 2006 02:23:37 PM
I used to sew, then I started making jewelry and let my sewing machine get all dusty. Anyhow, I started this dress in August and lost interest for about, oh 9 or 10 months. This weekend I decided it had to be finished and after two hours, ta-da, here it is:

Here is a closer up version of the same picture, but I had to cut my head off due to the really stupid expression on my face. The fabric has scripty writing all over it and zips up the back.

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Rainy weekend + resin = lots of new jewelry on: June 13, 2005 11:25:40 AM
It's the rainy season in Floriday so instead of a trip to the beach this is what I did with my weekend:

Bettie Page bracelet

I posted this one in the other resin thread, but figured I would start a new thread rather than hijacking that one.

Inspired by sarahdotcom's thread - I used elastic instead of jump rings. This pic was before I tied it together.

Oh baby!

Bathing Beauties

Brady Bunch

Pinup girls


That's it for now. I have a bunch of others not put together yet. The Oblongs, lots more pinup girls/Bettie page pictures, etc. The rainy season lasts until . . . October so I should have lots more by then. Smiley
