1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / The Brooklyn Fields -ahem- EXCLUSIVE collection! (IMAGE HEAVY) on: February 09, 2006 01:40:14 PM
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

After a couple of tries (and way too much failures) I finally finished my first line of jewerly! I fell in love with many different stlyes that I saw on TV and on the website Urbanoutfitters (http://www.urbanoutfitters.com).

So anyway, to make a long story short, my mother gave me a huge box of old beads and necklaces and said that I can do anything I wanted with them. So I thought to myself : Hmm... Dull and drab + Brookyln Fields Pizzaz = Perfectly Fab!!!  Grin

So here's the first that I made.

The Brooklynn Fields Love bracelete was made especially for Valentines day. The pink beads are shiny and have something like a pearly - glow I guess. You can't see it, but on both sides of the pink beads are small golden separaters that give the whole bracelete a unique vintage look.

The heart in the center was something found on a keychain in a lost in found bin! Its surrounded by a cute metal border and in the center are some words written in french but in the dead center it says 'NATASHA'. And completing this description - on the back of the heart is another cute heart design.

The Brooklyn Fields Snow White bracelete is made of special beads made out of little strings glued around it. It also has the golden separaters that The B.F Love bracelete has and the clasps are pure sterling silver. Its a little loose when you put it on, but it goes perfect with that outfit to wear at a dance, a wedding or even to give to that special someone.  Wink

Made out of the same velvety beads as the B.F. Snow White bracelete, the Brooklyn Fields Opera Twilight choker is one of a kind! Rescued from a horrible fate in the recycling bin, the pendent in the center is made out of metal with decorative gems in the center to resemble a beautiful flower!

Its just perfect to wear with that little black dress or to complete a spooky gothic ensemble!

And finally, the Brooklyn Fields Marshmallow Delight necklace is just a wonderful piece.

It looks a little bit loose. Truth be told this was my first time making a necklace in that design, it took about an hour to make and I just love the results!!!

The Marsmallow Delight fits perfectly around your neck and the loops lay comfterbly in place and with a strapless black shirt, will flatter the neck and also the lucky person who is wearing it! The loops go around the and end at the clasps at the end of the necklace.

So thats it. Thank you so much for taking the time to check these out. They are for sale if you are intrested (if you like the marshmallow delight, I might have to re-do it again). Thats all the time I have for right now, soon I'll be presenting the Brooklyn Fields P.Star earrings so look forward to those!!!

(After reading everything I came to the result that I sound like an announcer for the price is right . . .)
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Can I have some help on making a tunic? on: October 04, 2005 03:25:08 PM

Ok, so I got a banquet to get to on Saturday night and I didn't want to take the trouble to take the trolley to go to the Gaslamp and well I decided to make this tunic. Thing is, I really don't know where to start and I searched already for tuni tutorials, but nothing came out.

So can anyone help me out?

Thanks a lot!  Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Coffee Bean Help on: September 06, 2005 07:28:13 PM
I've been trying to make a coffee bean/bead bracelet but I just can't find a way to keep the beans from cracking.

What happens is that I soak the beans in hot water for about 10-15 minutes and then bead them with some beads but when they dry, they crack and end up breaking off. Is there anyway to keep the beans from cracking or is there something wrong with the way I prepared them?
