1  3 Necklaces and a bracelet made from old jewellery... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by peroxsym on: November 17, 2009 05:51:53 AM
Not sure if this is in the right place so apologies if it's not!

After I finished my project for the Junk Jewellery Swap 2 I was inspired - stayed up all night giving some old broken jewellery new life...

The first one is beads from a cheap old necklace (H&M I think) which was threaded on elastic which obviously snapped. Not sure if you can see it from the pictures but 8 of the beads are slightly larger and more pinkish, they're from a broken necklace I got from my grandma's collection. The closure is new.

Second one is made mainly from a necklace from grandma, some glass bits - just added parts of a broken chain to a part of the necklace. I know the closure isn't centered but I quite like it Tongue

The next necklace is parts of the same necklace I took the chain above from. I put all the beaded parts together and added some chains to the bottom.

And a bracelet to match...

They're not very special but I quite like them!

Received my wonderful bracelet from Uluru the other day! It's exactly the colours I prefer wearing so will go with a lot of my clothes Smiley Thank you!

I know I know, not too original but I'm proud! Also, I'm very excited cos it's the first time Mr Peroxsym has shown an interest in crafting! Well, drilling a hole.

When we move into a proper flat I'm gonna mount it onto the wall, but for now it's just leaning against... yep, computer science text books  Roll Eyes  (not mine!)

Like it?

4  Couple of simple necklaces - I'm proud ;) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by peroxsym on: March 27, 2008 12:28:03 PM
Been trying my hand at jewellery making. Not very advanced (yet?) but I enjoy it! Any comments or suggestions very welcome!

Made this for a friend -

Not really my style (well, my colours) but I adore the flowers -

Sorry it's blurry - hard to take photo of oneself Wink

5  Cookie loves milk! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by peroxsym on: November 03, 2007 03:23:03 PM
Yay for Threadless.com! This has been lying around my wardrobe for ages, so decided to recon it a bit. Got really inspired by various posts on here (don't have links to hand - but can't claim it's my own idea!)

Looks a bit bunched up at the sides, but I think I'm just standing funny. Hm.

(yes, I'm a spanner..)

What do you think?

6  Shiny brown top :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by peroxsym on: November 03, 2007 06:29:43 AM
I absolutely love this fabric, couldn't not buy it... Not entirely sure I love the result, not really something I'd wear - but the boyfriend thought it was store bought so I'm fair happy Wink

There's an elastic band at the bottom, so can be worn slightly differently...

Any suggestions/ideas to improve?

7  Ball dress:) image heavy... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by peroxsym on: June 26, 2007 07:04:56 AM
Finished this with literally minutes to spare - was putting it on and realised I'd forgotten to attach the straps!

It's not perfect but... you know. I'm quite happy with it! Any suggestions or comments would be very much appreciated!

Have a question - how do I, without boning (which scares the hell out of me) make it so this sort of dress doesn't make me look as flat? Couldn't wear a bra cos of the back...

And the 3am shot.. just cos I love the pic Kiss

The ball was so much fun - despite the appearance of such great acts as East 17 (I KNOW!) and Bjorn Again, we mainly stayed in the room with the jazz quartet. Classsssssy!

8  Polkadots! Everywhere!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by peroxsym on: June 10, 2007 02:46:25 PM
well, soon anyway...

I don't wear white much but this fabric just jumped out at me in the store. The idea for using red stitching came when I realised I only had a red zipper. Plus I thought it looked kinda cute  Grin

The fabric isn't so busy as it looks, there's just tiny black dots. No great photos I'm afraid. And I have no iron... ahem.

It's also slightly large but I usually wear longer shirts anyway heh.

9  Pants to skirts :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by peroxsym on: June 06, 2007 12:19:17 PM
These aren't very special but I've actually had a lot of compliments on them so thought I'd post them!

My favouritest jeans in the whole wide world had ripped - you know in that really annoying place right under your bum? From one end to another, on both legs. So I was basically walking around with my ass hanging out. I was very popular, but not overly comfortable. I stitched them up but on the first use they ripped back up as the fabric was so thin. So I made the below skirt...

Not a great pic, but here's the back as well - I wanted to keep the pockets as I always need them (purses are so annoying!)

My friend liked this so much she asked me to make something similar out of her trousers... End result is kind of the opposite, the frayed style wouldn't have worked on this fabric - and the front pockets were much deeper than the back ones so I kept those low instead. It's about a size too big on me modelling it here. It's the kind of pants with pockets down the side (I wanna call them combats?) so I kept them. Oh and please ignore the mess... That's my room in sewing mode  Grin

Any comments or suggestions muchly appreciated!

10  Leopard print skirt... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by peroxsym on: June 02, 2007 07:06:49 AM
Not posted anything new in a loooong time, combination of uni work load, and not having a digital camera...

I'm debating whether or not I should keep this - I absolutely love it but I don't know when I'd wear it... Came out pretty much exactly like I envisioned, might make it more fitted around the knees to enhance the femininity of it all.

Afraid I don't have any great pics of it, hard to take flattering photos of yourself!

Closeup of the pleats/tucks

And the lace-up closing - not the best idea I've ever had but I only had blue zips to hand. Hehe.

Any suggestions and comments would be very appreciated!
