1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Debbie Harry earrings on: February 06, 2007 05:32:37 PM
Debbie rocks, so I made these today as a sort of tribute to her greatness.  I printed out 2 copies of the shot from the "Atomic" video and decoupaged them onto black corrugated scrapbook paper with the Mod Podge, then gave them a coat of Paper Glaze.

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / aaaand, one more for the evening on: February 05, 2007 08:48:36 PM
I accidentally posted this in another thread and thus deleted that one, so here goes again...

Because I was so inspired by all the awesome button jewelry I have seen on here lately, I had to try it myself.  I randomly came across the buttons on my last field trip to the dollar store. The big round red sparkly things were leftover from my February Color Craftalong project.    
They were made from red glittery adhesive paper sandwiched in between 2 plastic scrapbooking "page pebbles".

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrink plastic bracelet and foam core necklace on: February 05, 2007 07:43:43 PM
Hey all,

I did these a few months ago. As you can see from my other posts I am a shrink plastic addict.  I colored the plastic sheet with various shades of colored pencil and drew the bats on with a Uniball(?) pen. After everything was shrunk I gave them a coat of spray sealer.


The skulls on the necklace are cut out of foam core with black tissue paper decoupaged on with Mod Podge.  I gave them a coat of Aleen's Paper Glaze (amazing stuff) and sealed the sequin eyes on with it.  The rest of the necklace is seed beads.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Two necklaces on: February 05, 2007 05:57:56 AM
Here are 2 necklaces I made recently:


The pendant is made of shrink plastic that I colored in with markers and colored pencils.  The rest of the necklace is seed beads and these lumpy black beads that had this sort of organic feel that I liked.


The second pendant again is shrink plastic done the same way...only it curled on one side and got stuck that way (d'oh!), and since I had spent so much effort on the coloring, I couldn't let it go to waste.  So, I pinched it and molded it while it was still soft, and this was the end result.  This one also has seed beads and the beige beads are shell. Once again, apologies for pathetic picture quality Grin

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Impy's Domino Art (with pics!) on: February 02, 2007 07:31:17 PM
OK, so I officially jumped on the domino bandwagon recently! I can't help it, they're so fun to make, not to mention cheap. I prepped them with gesso, then painted them with acrylics (except for the clouds, which was done with Sharpies), strung them on waxed linen cord and added a bead. For your viewing pleasure:





Top one is a crow, second is also a crow yet turned out looking like a sparrow(?!), third is clouds and the bottom are skulls. The skulls are actually on rubber tubing and which was strung through German wire which I coiled over a narrow wooden dowel and glued on with E6000. Apologies for poor picture quality, a newer better digital camera with the amazing  macro feature is coming next week, thanks to hubby!
