2  I got some copper and a mini kitchen blow torch. . . in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by pinkslinky on: March 24, 2012 12:22:32 PM
And made this bracelet.

I also found out how not hard weaving with wire is and made these rings.

3  Bee, Butterfly, Worm and Spider in CHALLENGE 66 ENTRIES by pinkslinky on: September 03, 2011 12:25:57 PM
These hairpins need some refinement but I got the idea for them when I read the challenge and so I'm putting them in.

6  Some one asked me a looooooong time ago about this. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by pinkslinky on: July 12, 2011 08:02:11 AM

Like two years ago or maybe longer, I made keychains with the same kebob as in the above earrings. Someone asked how I got the marble to stay inside. The trick is to use 18 gauge or larger wire, hammer the swirls before putting the marble in. Secure the marble as best as possible (use needlenosed pliers if necessary) within the spiral and-- very important-- use the tail as the final marble holder.

A tutorial:

7  Mixed media experiment in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by pinkslinky on: July 07, 2011 08:22:26 AM

Do you ever get an image in your head that you want to re-create but you're not sure how to go about it? Well, I've got a 'shattered glass' earring in my head. These earrings were an experiment to see if I could use mosaic glass in the way I imagined.

This is a piece of cardboard painted black on both sides with mosaic glass on both sides wrapped with colored brass wire. The experiment was a partial success. I wonder if I can do the same with wood veneer. . ..

8  I made these earrings and a tutorial. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by pinkslinky on: July 05, 2011 08:46:44 AM

Making the earrings seemed simple enough but the tutorial made them seem a bit more complicated than I remember it being. I'd like any feedback on both the earrings AND the tutorial. Click on the picture below for tutorial.

Thanks for looking.

9  I made a hanging paper lamp. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by pinkslinky on: July 03, 2011 09:22:01 AM
The far corner of my kitchen counter was dark and inaccessible, so I decided to hang a lamp there. My idea came at Home Depot in the hardware department where I saw a dohickey that I still don't know its use:

I glued decorative paper to chicken wire, wrapped the chicken wire around the dohicky, used construction adhesive to glue the chicken wire to the dohicky. The light is a kit. I used the one with an in-line switch. A looooong chain would work well also.

Here it is all shiny and lit:

Hubby says I should make 3 more only much shorter to hang under the cabinets. The hardest part: Gluing the paper to the wire. Added bonus-- I found that chicken wire with decorative paper on it makes for great backdrops in photos for jewelry and such.

10  Finished but with a question, if I may. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by pinkslinky on: June 30, 2011 09:22:10 AM
I usually make earrings but once in a while I'll do something different. Like this pin that I think is remeniscent of a seahorse. My son says 'slug'. He's lucky I went through all that trouble to give birth to him.

My question is: How do I work the end to a finer point? I have used files but the point is. . . sloppy. What would work? Knife sharpener?  Hand held sander? A specialty machine that costs hundreds?
