2  made a skeleton hand necklace..... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by butterfly_girl on: September 22, 2008 07:19:10 PM
Ok, I've made a skeleton hand necklace.  got the idea from this post.


Except I don't have a dremel, so I had to heat up a needle over a candle, with pliers and melt a hole in.  and i learned a lesson.  make the hole from the palm side of the hand out, that way there's no burn marks on the outside of the hand!

The only chain i had was bright shiny silver, and i wanted a darker chain, so i used black beads, cheap ones from michaels.  they're all different shapes.  also some dark clear greyish ones put in too.

4  lacey tube bracelet in Beads: Completed Projects by butterfly_girl on: September 02, 2008 06:00:56 PM
I made this bracelet this morning.  I was bored at work, and the internet was down, so I got to do some beadwork!  It's black and various other blues/purple.
I finished it off with a barrel clasp.  My fav type of closure really, looks a bit neater than other clasps.

forgive the blurry pic. 

what do ya think?  I like it!

6  maze/labyrinth in Completed Projects by butterfly_girl on: August 27, 2008 05:39:41 PM
I don't know if this qualifies as a craft, but it's something i made, that i want to share!  whew, this was a definite learning experience.

I made this maze/Labyrinth yesterday, for a community bbq my office was having.  It took about 2 1/2 hours to finish.  I used 8 inch cedar stakes. I'm not sure of the amount of stakes I used.  But I ordered 220 and i used probably 200 or so. 


my son walking the maze...

8  wire hearts in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by butterfly_girl on: August 25, 2008 08:21:43 AM

I made these a couple of years ago. there are more, but i've gotta find them.  The original idea was to give them to clients and the girls at my office, but that didnt happen.  :-P  ran out of time.

So, here they are and I don't know what to do with them.  no idea.  maybe necklace?

9  awesome blue/green summery bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by butterfly_girl on: August 11, 2008 07:32:53 AM

I love this bracelet!  I made it a few months ago, but misplaced it!

So, here it is.  It's made of glass beads from a kit I got from Michaels.  One of my first times using tiger tail.  I love that stuff.

It's hard to believe I actually made something that doesn't have black in it!  lol

Please forgive the weird angles.  I put the bracelet on my right hand, and tried to take the pics with my left....lol.   The sideview i had to take upside down.  I don't know why I just didn't switch the bracelet to my left, to make it easier.  Oh well.

So, what do you think?

10  Shrinkies! My first batch........zombie girl, hearts, paisley, in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by butterfly_girl on: July 31, 2008 05:52:18 PM
This is my first batch of shrinkies.  Done a month or two ago.  I've done a couple more since then.  I must say, I kinda like the results better, from pencil crayon than sharpie.  But then, maybe if i get the micro point sharpies, i may change my mind.  Hubby brought one home from work.  a black one.  i haven't used it yet.

I think I put too much of the spray sealant stuff on.  The sharpies kinda bled a little bit.   Sad  Most of the designs are from the shrink jewllery book i bought.  except the zombie and butterfly, that i did an internet search.  The blue butterfly- the wings are actually side views of skulls.

So, what do ya think?
