41  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / calling all lampworkers on: March 08, 2007 06:46:11 AM
I am new to lampwork beads. almost every bead I've made that I like has broken when I take it off the mandrel, if I can get it off at all. any tips on getting the beads off your mandrels? I've used vinegar with a little success, but many still break, or just don't come off at all.

This is a pattern from a really old macrame book I picked up at a used book store. Some of the patterns are o.k., this one however is ... well ... it's ... you tell me.

44  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Crochet +lampwork=necklass on: February 06, 2007 09:30:40 AM
I am taking a glass bead class and I made this weird abstract bead. I liked it enough to try out some crochet with wire to make the chain. I think it's pretty good for my first chain. I just wanted to show it off.

45  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Help! I can't wear my creation! on: February 06, 2007 08:44:51 AM
I am somewhat new to this form of jewlery making. I made this cute bracelet, but I can't figure out how to finish off the bead wire sticking out from the two end beads. I tried to just weave it back through the beads, but it then it looks kinky and I'm afraid it will come apart. I don't want to use a silver crimp bead. the whole thing is black (do they come in black? I've only ever seen silver and gold)  I've never actually used crimp beads before, but I've had other jewerly I've purchased come apart at the crimp bead. any suggestions? I really want to wear my bracelet.

Has anyone read this book?  I think it's readers digest. It sounds really cool. However, I'd like some input before I order it.
47  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / anyone mind sharing their favorite crafting resources? on: November 28, 2006 02:26:57 PM
Hello everyone. I am makeing a craft journal for a christmas gift, filled with tutorials and such. I wanted to include a referance page with crafting websites (such as this one), books (Generation T), magizines, what have you. However, I need more ideas for this page. So If you would mind shareing your favorite crafting resources with me (especially books, and magizines) I would really appreciate it. thanks.
48  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Any sewing/ quilting help would be greatly appreciated. on: November 24, 2006 09:16:48 AM
I've never done a quilting project. In fact I'm not even very good at sewing. However, I have this ambisous project idea to make a king size blanket. It's not really a quilt. I want to hopefully find a piece of fabric wide enough to be the frount, without a seam running down the middle of it (I know, good luck). Maybe the edgeing will make it wider. I've never made a blanket before. Will the batting inside slide around, and bunch up if It's not quilted, do I sew the batting together, and to the sides? I was hopeing that someone on here could direct me to a site for beginners, that could help me figure out how I can do this, in the event that I can find suitable fabric. I guess what I'm asking is..."How do I make a blanket?" I have a general idea, but any help would be appreciated.
49  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / How should I wrap beaded bottle covers? on: November 21, 2006 07:11:21 AM
Every year I make most of my Christmas gifts. Especially for my husbands family, he has a big family. This year, It's beaded bottle covers. There is a tut, here if anyone is interested.


Anyway, my problem is wrapping them. I though about just sewing some wine bags, but I don't want to waste my nice fabric that way, concidering it will probably just be pitched after christmas. and I don't want to use cheesy fabric. Someone suggested just stamping little gift cards and attaching them with ribbon, and I wouldn't have to worry about stamping Christmas cards for them that way. It's a neat idea, but is it bad etiquette not to wrap their gifts? Please share any other ideas you may have as well. Thanks.
50  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Someone help me on: October 07, 2006 06:19:22 AM
Wanted: A glass acorn bead (I want 2-3, but I would settle for one). Kinda Transparnt, brownish, blackish with the hole running verticle through the bead.

I have wanted to learn to make glass beads for a while, however the last two classes I have tried to sign up for have been full. I still intend to sign up, but I'm impatient and want my bead now. Is there anyone here who can make beads, and would make me atleast one acorn bead? I would pay them of course, or swap craft supplies if preferred
