1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / how to start steampunk stuffz on: July 14, 2011 11:42:47 AM
Ok, my latest obsession with crafty goodness is steampunk.  Now i've gotten a wind up clock, and a wind up timer that i took apart.  now i'm not sure what to do with it.  The inspiration came from all the things i've seen here, and also i picked up a small piece of framed artwork, steampunkish.  it was wind up watch pieces, and an old fashioned key mounted and framed.  I really liked it, and have it in my bedroom wall.

what is the best way to attach the gears and stuff to various things.  metal, fabric, eachother?  ideas?    When i have more time I am going to check out more tutorials.  figured i'd ask this for now.

A friend asked me to make her some stuff to give away at a function in december.  nice order, i get to make whatever i want!  lol :-)  So, here is about half the stuff i've doen already.  i posted earlier i think of other things.  Lots of hats from patterns by dot, as well as the professional hat, a news boy hat, gulf shores hat, and the scarf from happy hooker, and cell phone holders.  What do ya think??

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / made a skeleton hand necklace..... 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.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / lacey tube bracelet 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!

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / maze/labyrinth 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.

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?
