1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I see Beads Every Where on: October 14, 2009 09:55:00 PM
I know this is not a completed beaded project but I wanted to share my excitement. I found a free box of gaudy ornaments and instantly saw beads. I took the box home full of 20 ornaments, disassembled all the ornaments and ended up with a box full of beads! For Free! *Smiling* I can use all of the materials except the glue gobs. I think you have to be a crafter to see beauty in free gaudy ornaments!

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Foreign Coin and Belt Loop Necklace on: October 14, 2009 09:36:37 PM

I made this necklace last week using foreign coins from my collection as a child. The circles and rectangular clasps I salvaged from a belt. The beads are vintage brass (I think) and the chain came from other vintage necklaces.

This is my new favorite thing to do, taking apart the old and creating the new.

Comments are appreciated    Grin!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / What Drilling Tool Do You Use?? on: October 08, 2009 06:00:50 PM
Hello Crafters,  Smiley
 I would like to know what type of drill you use to drill different art mediums, like resin, wood, soft metals, (particularly vintage enamel brooches and jewelry). I've done about a little researching and came across the Classic Push-Drill for Delicate Jewelry & Soft Metal Drilling, which can be found at Amazon.com. I also came across someone using a regular dremel tool. I have a dremel tool, but how do I know which bits to use?   Huh

Any information or links would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and happy crafting, Bonster Grin

 Does anyone know if there will be a round two for fill a priority mail box? I looked at the gallery for the first round and it looks like a great swap, I totally want to do it. Hmmm... Perhaps I should PM the organizer of the first summer fill a box swap.

I've been enjoying all the beading posts so much, I got back into the groove of beading again. Thank you! Here are some pictures of a few bracelets I made.
Constructive criticism appreciated. Thanks, B. Grin

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I have two boxes full of velvet on: April 09, 2008 07:48:55 PM
Hello Craftsters,
 I'm sort of a newbie, I don't know if I'm posting this is in the right section, but I have two boxes stuffed with velvet. I would like to trade this fabric for something else. Does anyone know of an organized swap that I can join that involves swapping fabric??

Thanks, Bonster
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Q?: Should Instructions for Knitting Patterns be Abbreviated or Not? on: March 29, 2008 10:59:34 PM
Hello Crafty Beings,
 I'm trying to set up vintage PDF patterns and I decided to re-type the instructions. I was thinking that if the instructions were typed out rather than abbreviated it would be easier for the buyer to read the instructions. What do you think? Would knitting patterns be easier to read abbreviated or not?

Thanks for you time, happy knitting, Bonnie
8  COOKING / Dessert / Agate Beach B-day Cake on: February 03, 2008 10:00:30 PM
My friend made this birthday cake for me. One half is a sandy beach named A-got-ay Beach and the other half is the ocean with sea kelp. She used jelly beans for agates, graham cracker for sand, a large picture of my face on a body, crafty stickies for the crab, sand bucket, and shovel. She also cut out a picture of herself and her mom snorkeling in hawaii. It's so awesome. What do you think?
