1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Grab the Brass Earrings on: April 09, 2007 01:54:12 PM
I was going through my stash of findings, and I came across some awesome, hand hammered brass rings that I bought a while ago. I also had a few pieces of sterling silver chain that I thought were too short to be any good.

So, I decided to put 'em together, and this is what I got....

I love it when stuff just kinda works out.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Zipper in a Jordy Tutorial on: April 09, 2007 01:13:39 PM
As promised, I took pictures and wrote up a tutorial for putting a zipper into a Jordy bag. It is on my blog:

I should warn you that it is EXTREMELY picture heavy. Lots and lots of pics.

If you see any errors or ommissions, or anything that doesn't make sense, please feel free to leave a comment here or there and I'll try to clarify. I hope this makes sense to someone other than me. LOL...
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Whoo hoo~ Figured out zippers. on: April 01, 2007 08:52:25 AM
It took me a loooooong time, but i finally figured out how to put a zipper into a purse in a way that looks good and actually works. 

I made the beige purse for my mom. I like the navy, red and white one better. I still have lots of that fabric left, so I'm going to make a larger purse with it and put some pockets inside. Smiley

I made this cool brooch (very spring time)

from reclaimed buttons. Smiley
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Spring Loaded II on: January 27, 2007 12:35:26 PM
I really liked the Spring Loaded Pendant I made out of the reclaimed curtain rod ring, so I decided to try a bit of a variation. This time I left the top loop unwrapped to get a more two toned look. And I used a different kind of button. I think I like this one better!

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From Curtain Rod Ring to Uber cool Pendant. on: January 23, 2007 04:23:07 AM
Just wanted to show off this pendant a bit. It is made from a curtain rod ring, a reclaimed button and sterling silver wire. I love the way it turned out. It is called the Spring Loaded Pendant....

I also made this keychain from reclaimed buttons and a reclaimed belt buckle. It is called The Nautical Keychain

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / January goals? on: January 06, 2007 07:51:24 AM
What are your goals for this month? I am aiming to make 5 sales this month. I'll be really busy with my fulltime job, otherwise I'd set it a little higher.

I already made one sale, so I really only have 4 more to go!

9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Online source for fimo polymer clay on: December 13, 2006 06:14:19 AM
Can anyone recommend a good online source for buying the fimo brand polymer clay? I am specifically wanting to buy the stone fimo. A Canadian source would be preferred, but American is ok too. I'm having trouble searching one out. Thanks!

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / E6000 Glue on: December 09, 2006 08:37:58 AM
Everyone raves about this glue, so I bought some. I've been told that it would glue my car to the road......but I'm not all that thrilled with it.  I find that it works great for plastic and metal, but doesn't work for glass very well at all. Has anyone else found this? Anyone know anything that works really well on glass?

I think I'll go back to a two part epoxy for glass....
