1  Hippie Earrings! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by blinkingmouse on: June 10, 2008 02:37:13 AM
Festival season is coming so I dug out these awesome triangular handmade butons I bought at the begining of the year and made some over the top hippie earrings guarenteed to get you noticed in the crowds. I love how these buttons have a kind of tye dye effect.

2  Paperclips - The Trend of the Future? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by blinkingmouse on: May 24, 2008 05:56:11 PM
We've seen some amazing trends start here . I wonder if I could be a trend setter too with these paperclip chandelier earrings? I've made 2 pairs but I've bigger plans for the next ones I make, replacing the seed beads with crystals and maybe making the seed bead support with peyote stitch?

3  Orange and Blue Just For You in Beads: Completed Projects by blinkingmouse on: March 25, 2008 01:40:30 PM
Just a quick one picture post today to show off my newest necklace. It's just randomly strung, made with a mixture of different media following a loose colour scheme of orange and blue (with a bit of purple thrown in). There's everything from ceramics, to glass, to real chips of amber in this necklace and it was one of the few projects I fully finished in a day (usually I get distracted by other jobs).

4  Aren't Earrings Fun As Heck? in Beads: Completed Projects by blinkingmouse on: March 18, 2008 01:47:22 PM
I went on a bit of a spree last week because I'd got some new bead supplies. Hope you enjoy looking at the beginings of my first earring collection 'Little Red Hearts' (I named them all individually) and a cute non heart related pair I call 'The Beaded Forest'.

Take Me Out Tonight

The First of the Season

Would Like to Meet (these are seriously posh because yes folks that's real amber).

A Great Favourite with the Boys (a sexy student teacher pair).

The Beaded Forest. This pair are a little sample of my great beading idea for when I eventually have enough time, space an talent to create a room sized bead forest.

5  Buttons are Brilliant! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by blinkingmouse on: February 28, 2008 01:48:38 PM
I love buttons - so easy to find many different shades of a colour. Recent I've made a few colour themed pieces with buttons and I thought you might like to see them:

This is called 'Costal Wreck' because with the brown wooden button and smooth glass pieces it seemed to come out with a bit of a shipwreck theme.

And this is 'The Botanist Collecting' because the necklace is green but all different shades and types of buttons reminded me of an Edwardian botanist's butterfly collection only more planet friendly specimen collection.

6  You Can Stand Under My Umberella in Completed Projects by blinkingmouse on: February 20, 2008 03:34:18 PM
I made this absolutely ages ago and then donated it to a craftster member for her charity sale. All it took was some fabric paint and pens, basic stencils, the gift of a child sized umbrella kit and of course my very own fun imagination.

 Butterfly surrounded by flowers (shame I don't have a better pic of that panel really).

Pink elephants come to take you away.

Love birds.

In these pictures you can kind of see the red pig I did with yellow stars on its body but I seem to remember that was hard to get a decent image of.

7  Urgh beads that aren't drilled properly in Beads: Discussion and Questions by blinkingmouse on: June 20, 2007 10:24:03 AM
Small rant:

I bought a bag of mixed beads from a shop I've used before and mostly they are great, some small discs broken in the post but mostly great quality. But annoyingly today I went to use some large beads that came in the bag in a new design. I planned it out, shifted around the colour, invested in it and then when I got half way through stringing I found that two large beads were not drilled all the way through, how annoying. I don't have any more glass beads large enough to replace them and the trick of poking wire through the drill line isn't working so I was wondering if anyone knows a shop I can buy something similar without buying a whole bag of mixed beads.

I've put some pictures below so you can see what I'm looking for (and couldn't resist shoing what I'm working on).

This is the bead (glass):

Necklace half finished and the unstrung portion behind it (the bead I'm looking to replace is the first one on the left in the unstrung part):

8  Button Necklaces, a braclett, earings and a question - phew in Beads: Completed Projects by blinkingmouse on: June 20, 2007 10:14:56 AM
First I'd like to thank whoever posted about how macro mode seriously enhances your close up photos. I love to play with buttons and here are my two most recent creations in buttons:

My most professional looking braclett yet:

I bought a bunch of these cute little hearts from someone at etsy:

Hope you enjoyed my image fest.

9  Morris the brightly coloured robot in CHALLENGE 15 ENTRIES by blinkingmouse on: October 02, 2006 07:16:45 AM
This is my first craft challenge, yay!
This little guy's name is Morris. He's made entirely from Fimo. I love him and I think I might make him a little robot girlfriend some day soon. Oh and I had to post links instead of pics because I haven't posted enough to be allowed to post pictures yet.

Good luck fellow challengers.

10  Customized child-size umbrella in Stenciling: Completed Projects by blinkingmouse on: September 16, 2006 10:29:28 AM
Hi I'm new and this is my first post Smiley My friend lent me her digital camera so I actually have some quality pictures to show (hope they are not too big, not so good at this whle re-sizing thing). I used the paint from the kit and some stencils I had around the house to create this:

The cat is a stencil of my own making so I'm especially proud of this panel.
