11  viva LEGO pinata! editted for in-action pics in Party Planning by kwchick on: April 30, 2010 09:36:28 PM
2 weeks of on-and-off work, savings of 25$, and a pinata you can actually smash . . . not a pull string one

just started with a toaster box, covered in plastic wrap to use as a form, paper mache'ed a ton of layers, cut up kool-aid singles tube for the dots, removed box, painted, and glued on tissue paper . . looks awesome!

smashy smashy!!!

pics of my awesome pinata getting the candy beat out of it . . .

k, you can stop! i think it's dead now . .

14  (aluminum) diamonds are a girl's best friend in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by kwchick on: September 25, 2009 06:54:41 AM
I was racking my brain as to what else I could possibly make with my maybe ignorant order of 3/32" rings. I had ordered them wanting to make finger rings, not knowing what else to do with them . . but i finally figured out something else


And since i loved them, but dont have pierced ears, i made a very mini-inlay pendant:

all of them together

thanks for looking!

17  first maille earrings, plastic tubing & stretchy flower maille in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by kwchick on: July 28, 2009 09:52:44 PM
I am going to visit a dear friend who has two young daughters so I made a few things for them . . the LOVE earrings, and I think out in the backwoods where they live (where i also used to live) these will be quite the showstoppers!

I made her and I matching stretchy maille bracelets with two of my rare plastic flowers

and finally . . a trip to a mechanic's dream store led me to this tubing . . i LOVE it . . can't wait to stick some seed beads in there and see what it looks like . . for now I just tried with a thin chain, and it looks really really neat!

i also got a "wire twister" there which is sure to make some totally awesome stuff!

hope you all like!

The photo that inspired me to get into maille was of a necklace using captive-inverted-round with blue swarovski bicones . . i was in awe of the beautiful thing! AFter months of trying to figure out how to start it . . I finally bought a tutorial and have now completed my inspiration . . (and soooooooooo easy it is!!!)

red iridescent glass:

pink glass and pearls necklace & purple pearl bracelet

And, inspired by my first ever purchase of capris (ya, I know . . . sooo out of it, lol) a rubber stretchy anklet!!

thanks for looking!


love these things! so comfy!!

and this awesome necklace I made with more of the plastic gems . . i don't have a pic of it, but there is a heart chain dangle that goes halfway down my back . . SO cute!
