1  Re: Promalong - Making your own Prom dress? Join the club! in Clothing Sewalongs by faux on: May 14, 2007 04:55:43 PM
Well my dress isn't 100% home made, but I did purchase it at a vintage store in palm springs.  I fixed the damaged neckline, changed the sleeves, added the ribbon, and preformed a few 'fix up's'.  It had lovely draping in the back (sorry no pics) and it turned out to be my dream dress!

2  Dream catcher meet geometry in Beads: Completed Projects by faux on: August 05, 2006 02:04:27 PM
1 strand from 1 hank of beads from the local hippie store + an old bangle (i seem to have a lot of these for someone who hates wearing them!) + a bit of superglue

satisfies both my crafty and math-nerd-ey sides

3  My Version of Chanel Pearls in Designer Clothing Homage by faux on: July 20, 2006 07:32:57 PM
Like lots of other craftsters, I spent the majority of The Devil Wears Prada drooling over the decadent clothing and accessories.  In particular I LOVED the lovely chanel pearl necklace!  Here's my version in pink!

4  Vintage Wings (semi-pic heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by faux on: July 20, 2006 07:24:16 PM
When my grandmother died, i received all of her AMAZING jewelry.  She seriously had the best collection ever, and while most of it was completely amazing on its own, some just begged to be revamped.  The center of this bracelet (which i think kind of looks like wings) was actually part of the clasp on a multi string necklace, kind of like this one.... (except for a lot neater)

So, i used some gold chain, and lots of odd gold jump rings that i could find (finding ones that were thin enough to fit through the chain was a pain in the ARSE!!)
I'm so happy with how it turned out!!!!

In action!

5  Orange + Lace = bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by faux on: July 13, 2006 02:54:09 PM
I focused alot of my crafting efforts during the school year on jewelry.  In particular simpler, quicker projects that fit in my time and attention span, while still filling my crafty quota : )

Thank you guys so much!  The best part was the quickness/instant gratification factor : ) Here's an incredibly awkward action shot of it on my wrist modgirl!

7  What would we do without reconstruction? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by faux on: July 06, 2006 07:23:15 PM
I at least would wear lots of ugly/illfitting/boring shirts  Smiley I originally made this shirt for the tom petty/pearl jam concert.  It was formerly a boring gray t-shirt, and some left overs of a HUGE green shirt.  It's very comphy (i love t-shirt fabric!!!) and i made it to line up perfectly with my bra, which eliminates generally annoying adjusting.

8  Rings to bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by faux on: July 06, 2006 05:48:47 PM
As a firm believer in NOT throwing anything away, it broke my heart when i looked at the large collection of rings that i had outgrown.  Finally I decided to put them to good use, and ended up with this.....

a lovely bracelete, modeled by my knee

Ok, here's a pic, sorry about the blurry-ness, and big-ness, it looks alot better if you copy and paste it into a word document, and make it smaller.

10  pop tab bracelet chain style in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by faux on: November 14, 2004 12:01:26 PM
Note:  Look at the picture, before you read the directions, and it might make a little more sense.
I've been dying to post this for the longest time, and i've finally gotten a passable picture up.  This sounds really complicated, but actually, each one only takes about 20 minutes.  The only materials you need are scissors and 42 pop tabs (I have a smallish wrist, so some people might need more).  First, take 3 pop tabs and make a cut through the circle opening of each, so that you can "open" the tab.  Now clip these onto the square opening of three more so they're perpendicular to each other, keep doing this, clipping the open circle part of 3 to the solid square part of three more,, creating a chain that kinda looks like a bike chain.  I know a girl who did this, and welded all the little cuts back together, but the combined force of 3 with the cuts still there is enough to keep it together. As far as getting it on and off, mine just slips on and off, I'm sure there's some brilliant closure that someone can think up, but I certainly haven't discovered it yet.  Sorry my explaining skills arn't up to par, look at the picture, and read the directions over, and it might make more sense.  Feel free to post any questions!
P.S. YAY!  i finally have something better than a distorted link up!  enjoy
