11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Triple strand pearl necklace on: May 02, 2011 05:55:42 PM
Here is a necklace I made last night.  I used glass pearls in a matte grey finish, pewter colored chain and findings, and chinese crystals.  C & C is encouraged and more than welcome!   Cheesy

Close up of focal.

Haven't posted anything in a super long time, so I thought I would share one of my newest creations...BirdSkull!  I want to leave it framed in the hoop, but am unsure of how to finish the back.  Any suggestions?

Pattern by Urban Threads.

Sorry about the slight blurring in the photos.

C&C more than welcomes!
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Recent Beaded Goodness (pic fatty) on: August 26, 2009 04:21:03 PM
 I've been a busy little bee!  Here are some pic, because I really love some of these!


Pearls + Aquamarine =

Personally, I think it would make a pretty piece for a bride.  The aquamarine adds a hint of "something blue." 

Pink Rhondonite + Pink Freshwater Pearls =

Rainbow Art Glass + Black Seed Beads =

Red Jasper + Loads of eye pins =

The jasper has all this great detail that I thought it looked best on its own.

Aqua Terra Jasper + Loads of eye pins =

I fell in love with these stones at first sight.  <3


Crystals + Antiqued Brass =

I just could not get a real great pic of these, not matter what I tried.  However, they are much more sparkly in real life!  Didn't do much other than piece them together, I got those great discs from a dealer at a travelling bead show.

Green Adventurine + Crystal =

Cute and simple.  Who needs more?


Sterling silver + Pineapple Quartz + A Bird in Flight =

I think this necklace is my fave (that I have made) ever. 

Any C+C?  Leave it here, please!  Thanks for looking!

Here are some pics of beaded goodness I have left from the summer.  Hope they aren't too blurry.  Still trying to figure out the new digi.

The Blues:  Blue freshwater pearls strung with silver spacers.  The dangle consists of swarovski crystals, vintage german glass beads, and glass leaf charms.

Sparkling Heart:  Round swarovski crystals (in fuschia and fire opal colors) "floating" on black tigertail around a large heart focal.  The focal has a color range of sparklies going from orange to light pink.  The toggle is a sterling heart.

Chocolate & Teal:  Wire-wrapped chocolate-colored faux pearls with a round pendant.  Pendant depicts image of butterflies and flowers in brown with a teal background.

Cameo Love:  I love Cameos.  My friend and I found a bag of old cameos at the flea market this past summer and split the cost and contents of the bag.  I learned how to set them and where to find suitable settings for them.  So, a necklace was born.  Made of wire-wrapped white faux pearls, grey and pink swarovski crystals.  I tried to make the cameo image show up  better, but nothing I know how to do seemed to work.  Sorry!

Puffy and Swirled:  A bracelet and earring set.  Pink swarovski crystals paired with unknown puffy beads (pinks, greys, and mints swirled through).  I think they are some sort of semi-precious stone, but have no idea what.  The colors in them are what drew me to buy them though. 

Hope you liked looking!  ^_^

16  UNITED STATES / Missouri / St. Louis Charity on: June 26, 2007 11:15:40 AM
Hey guys.  I'm looking for a group who may incorporate handcrafted items to give to patients at one of the local hospitals.  Something like a group who makes pillows or headwear for cancer patients- or anything like that.   Anyone know of any groups in the St Louis area?  I'm interested in lending a helping hand if I can.

Here are some I have made:

Pearls with jade-colored firepolished glass beads.

Pearls with swarvoski crystals in clear & very pale blue.  I call it "Something Blue" because I think it would be a great bridal piece.  It has blue, but not enough to distract from all the bridal white.

Rose Quartz with pearls w/ earrings.
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Red Necklace Set on: May 22, 2007 11:59:18 PM
I am personally pretty proud of this necklace.  I knew I just had to buy the focal bead at a show a couple of months ago and did not know how to use it after I got home.   One night I came up with this:

Group Shot.

Closeup of necklace focal.   Blown glass bead made in Italy.  Other beads include: swarvoski crystals, seed beads, and goldtone beads.

Sorry for shadowy and rumpled background in the pics! 

Earrings to match!
19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Earrings Galore! (IMG HEAVY) on: May 22, 2007 11:53:42 PM
I have been an earring-making fool lately!   Tell me what you think!

"Wishbone" earrings.  Made with wire and swarvoski crystals.

"Cube" earrings.  Made of head pins and cube swarvoski crystals.

VW Bug earrings!  Made with Bug ceramic beads and swv. crystal and sterling accents.

Thanks for looking! Lemme know what you think!
20  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Iron Ons and Tote Bags? on: February 08, 2007 12:33:13 AM
I want to try and do an ironed on image from the 'net onto a canvas tote bag.   Would the Avery paper from my local store be good enough for such a thing?   I'm afraid I have a limited time frame to get this project done and cannot order anything from the internet to finish.   So I thought I would ask here and decide where to go after I get some feedback.   

The only things I have read about the avery papers concern tee shirts, and a tote will not ever be washed, really.   So no worry about the washing fears....
