2  i need some honest opinions in Get Product and Website Opinions by MissyMafia on: June 12, 2007 08:56:06 AM
so all of my friends and family swear that they love the jewelry i make.

i did one craft fair a couple months back, and i did decently, i guess, based on the turnout.

but i need some honest to goodness comments and criticisms.

what do you think of this stuff? i'm only posting 4 examples for now, hoping that whatever you say will help me out for the rest.

thanks in advance.

3  so i made my sister's jewelry for prom... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MissyMafia on: April 23, 2007 10:42:56 AM
made up of 100+ swarovski crystals and lots of antique brass wire. the earrings are hanging on some of the pins at the neck of my mannequin, Stella. My sister hasn't seen the finished results yet.. she just asked for a "big, sparkly" necklace. hopefully she likes it!

why i never thought to take pictures of my metalwork is beyond me. i give most of it away as gifts. the only one i have for myself is this:

its made of silver, bronze, and copper, but ..well, i just dont like the way metal looks, so i burned the hell out of it!

if you couldnt tell, its a ribcage with a heart soldered into the background on the base piece. the photo doesnt do it justice. oh yeah, its a broach Smiley

5  ghosts and knits! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MissyMafia on: March 09, 2006 06:38:32 PM
i hadn't made anything recently unless it was for school, and i realized today how disappointed i was in myself for that.
so VIOLA! i made 2 new bags. they're just little guys, but they're oh so cute.
i think so, anyway.

this one's blue vinyl with little ghost buttons on the front!
[and a sheer purple ribbon for the handle]

complete with spiderwebs and spiders for the lining!
[sorry for the image quality Undecided]

i just started knitting with the remainers of a skein of thick yarn, and it became this:

complete with zipper closure!
[its really not as crooked at it looks in this pic]

Thanks for looking <3

6  Felt dino and skull! ALSO! whale, crayon and name magnets! in Completed Projects by MissyMafia on: February 03, 2006 08:38:11 AM
Today is my friend Dano's birthday.
Every time I think of her name, I think "Dano-saur"
in honor of her 20th bday, i decided to make her, her own little danosaur!

she has a thing for squares... so he has square spots!

so maybe he is bowlegged. dont make fun. he's sensitive.

ALSO! I couldnt figure out what else to make her, but I was looking thru the felt posts this morning and came across some cute felt skulls, so I made one of those as well.

she's a magnet!



while I was in class, i decided to make more stuff:

"Dano" name magnet

whale magnet

magnets in action with a horriffic glare

and she has tattoos of crayons, SO crayon pins!

they can be worn seperately, or in the box

thanks for looking Smiley

since a bunch of you asked for the stencil of the pirate, here it is!
i found it on a "national pirate day" flyer, but i know i've seen it in one of those picture font things.

9  metal broach in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MissyMafia on: December 13, 2005 02:48:05 PM
in my jewelry class at school, we were required to hand-make a broach made of metal.
the only requirements were that we must have at least 1 texture, 2 rivets, and 2 parts soldered on.

i chose the dirtiest metal i could find, just because.. well.. i dont like clean metal. it has no character.

anywho, this is what i came up with.

if you cant tell [which a lot of people cant at first], its a ribcage with a heart behind it.
the ribcage is made of nickel, the heart is copper, and the backing piece is bronze.

it looked AMAZING until i had to put it in the chemical bath before i was able to sauder it... now it just looks all burnt and kinda crappy. but i refuse to buff it and shine it, i still think this is better than that.

its all burnt because my teacher is insane and instead of using a soldering gun, we used a TORCH. c'maaaaan.

anyway, what do you think?
