1  Fortune Teller Gypsy Steampunk Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by emmagypsy on: April 17, 2012 05:55:59 PM
I got out my pile of mismatched beads and random jewelry bits & things last night, and... made these earrings! I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, they remind me of something a fortune teller would wear... you know, with a turban, an old shawl, and big rings on every finger. Smiley

Have a great day, all you lovely creative people!

2  Raggamuffin Elephant Purse Made of Fused Plastic Bags & Lace in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by emmagypsy on: March 27, 2012 02:06:36 AM
I found this plastic bag with these beautiful elephants, and I knew I had to do something with it (I'm a slight garbage hoarder). So I got out some of my random plastic bags, fused them between parchment paper, and sewed the pieces together like Frankenstein skin with the zig-zag stitch. This is my first time doing the plastic fusing thing. I'm pretty happy with how it came out! Best part is free purse for me, and I am one cheap lady!

It was so fun and free form! I'd like to make more!

The only thing I have left to do is get a button for it. I couldn't find any that I liked for it in my stash, so I'm gonna keep my eye out til I find the perfect one.

Thanks for looking! Wink

3  Stone & Wood Bear Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by emmagypsy on: March 13, 2012 09:00:22 PM
This is my first post. I've been a total lurker for a long time, and you guys totally inspire me all the time!

So I have dreams about polar bears a lot, ever since I was young. So I was pretty excited when I found this wumbo size stone bear charm. Awesomeness!

I have a ton of wooden beads. Then I beaded two of those eye-end pins to hang the bear on, to add a little color and make the bear blend in better. I tried just putting a jump ring in the bear and putting it on the necklace, but it just looked bland.

I don't know, I just love bears. All bears. They are enormous, furry, and eat berries. Did you know that bears LOVE Snickers bars? It's true. So adorable and so scary all at once.

What do you guys think? Smiley
