I would do this:

You'd need three pieces of wood
Screws or brackets at the arrows
and a long light fixture
BUT you could see!!!

ps. Son't worry. That's just light, not worms flying at you.

3  Cloisonne enamel sea critters earrings-image heavy in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by mrgrita on: July 01, 2008 04:11:21 PM
I finished some new enamels! Yay!
I finished my sea critter earrings today!  They turned out prety schwank, IMHO. I'm having a helluva time photographing the glass though... Guess I'd better see if I can sweet talk someone into borrowing their cloud dome.

Initially, the shark was my least favourite, but after many layers I feel the simple colors really pop and he's just, well, neat!  The other two darkened quite a bit in the orangey tones due to the many more times they went into the kiln. (I should have known better, as oranges and reds never hold up, but I thought this color was yellow enough to withstand the heat)  The starfish got so dark that I had to add yellow and orange mica powder to brighten them up! oy!  I think it saved them though.  Here's a fes pics with less reflection.
The backs have small pierced out images of a shark fin in waves, starfish, and bubbles respectively.

It's been a while since I've had time to make new pieces.  To see some older stuff check out this previous post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=214193.msg2303046#msg2303046

Thanks for looking! Have a grand day and watch out for sharks!

4  White Lies Krista Lace T in Knitting: Completed Projects by mrgrita on: April 27, 2008 08:33:11 PM
I decided to take on some lace for my sister's birthday project.  I used Cascade Pima Tencel.  I love the pattern and plan to make it again for myself. Yum!

I hope it fits her!  (It's pretty stretchy so I'm not too worried, but she is a bit more endowed than I:)

Well I've only gotten through 18rows and I'm feeling the same way.  Maybe frog and go for lace.  I'm gonna give it at least another 18though to see if the larger pattern starts looking like something.  I shoulda picked a simple off-white or something:/

yay! Thanks for the tute hdog!
My hubby has been on the search for the perfect wallet and I think with the help of your tute I made one he'll like:)

I added an inner flap with pockets (which he desperately wanted). It's plain black on the outside with bali batik innards.

7  Tomato based sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by mrgrita on: February 03, 2008 06:40:57 PM
I bought a bunch of wool yarn a while back intending to make a funky striped sweater for myself.  I had no real pattern in the plan, but thought a top down raglan might be neat to try (yay for no seams!)

Starting with Wendy Bernard's Tomato as a pattern base, I got this:

I used Lion wool and various other similar sized yarns, added bust darts, and made it long sleeved.  The stripe pattern was a make it up as you go sort of thing.  I would have done it a bit differently if I had a plan, but I sure do like how it came out just the same:)

Whatcha think?

9  Scoodies for wee ones in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by mrgrita on: January 05, 2008 09:46:33 AM
I made a couple of scoodies using Vegbee's tutorial for my bosses kids.  They are 3 (girl) and 4 (boy).   
I did flannel monkeys with a pink fleece lining for her:

And flannel robots with blue fleece lining for him.  Sadly I could not find Transformers flannel.  That would have made him really happy.

I was out of town, so they won't get them until today.  They're super warm:)  I hope they like 'em!

For the last two months I've been focusing my jewelry making energies on cloisonne enamels and setting said enamels in silver and gold.  Here are the fruits of my labor Cheesy
First there's Flora:


And last my "Everybody Has a Dream" series, in which penguins fly, bat have glasses, a vegetarian otter snacks on oyster crackers, and bunnies concerned with overpopulation have prophylactics Grin:
