1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Inspired by Genie Bottles on: January 25, 2006 06:46:44 PM
I have really long hair and find it useless to wear ear rings when you cannot see them anyway, so I made chokers.  Hope you enjoy!

Black: (Hematite, Fiber Optic, black seeds, and sterling silver interior bead)

Brown: (Random tones of brown crystals I had laying around)

Blue: (Montana Blue Swarovski with Speckled saphire/black facets, black seeds, and Montana Blue Swarovski interior)

These are close-ups of the beads on both sides of the Genie Bottle Focal, they are another beaded bead called "Tornado Cubes"

2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Posting Help on: January 06, 2006 03:57:30 AM
This is going to sound so bad, especially since I am a programmer by profession, but how do I post something that is in Power Point? 

My digital camera is on the fritz, and I promised a tutorial for the Jewelry Craftalong, so I had to do it in Power Point so I could draw the beads and threading details.  Now I have no idea how to post it.

I made these individually, but since this is my phone, I had to have all three!

I made this out of a left over Swarvoski slider.  I did not have enough to make another watch, but they cost too much to just discard!

I found these really pretty stones and could not find anything to do with them, so I made them into floating necklaces:

Here is my latest attempts at jewelry making.  I am making 6 sets of the pearl and gold choker, bracelet, and earrings for a friends wedding.

I started with this one.  It is black dunks with an AB finish and silver and black 11/0 seed beads.

Hope you enjoy!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Necklace Recommendations Needed on: November 22, 2005 03:40:31 AM
I have this dress, only it is black and want to make some kind of fabulous beaded necklace to go with it for my company Christmas party.  I do not loom or wear a lot of wire jewelry since I have long hair.  I have until December 2 to complete it too...so what do you suggest?
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Dream Weaver on: November 03, 2005 11:04:32 AM
This was my project last weekend.  I tried and tried, but was unable to get a picture that really done it justice!  

It is 10 individual strands woven through a base strand and focal bead.  The seed and accent bead colors are all browns, golds, and coppers.  

I just started another one with black, white, and silver, and will post it when it is done.  I am hoping to find the time to do a tutorial for the jewelry craft-a-long.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / 2 New Sets on: October 25, 2005 06:10:49 AM
I was lucky enough to acquire some back issues of Bead and Button magazine last week and found directions for this necklace, called Fall Fringe in the October 2004 issue.  I was unable to get the color of leaf beads needed for it to be in all fall colors, so I call mine, Indian Summer!


This one, I found these shell type beads at a bead store on clearance and set them back until I could figure out what to do with them, that was a year ago!  I finally found something, I used sterling silver long curved bugle type beads, sterling silver round beads, and sterling silver findings:

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Spiral Choker on: October 14, 2005 03:45:41 AM
For the first Jewelry Craftalong, we were challenged to create a necklace with wire and beads, using the spiral design.  I had some 18 guage red Artisitic Wire laying around, so I grabbed it and my nylon flat nose pliers and this is what I came up with.  I really loved the simplicity of the spirals and how elegant it looked, so I decided not to put any beads on it and left it as it was.  I sometimes have a tendency to "overkill" something because I cannot stop fiddling with it!  I thought I would post it here in case you don't look through the craftalong boards.  Hope you enjoy!
