Then they are even more amazing!! Those beads are absolutely gorgeous too.
Can I ask what you use to slice your canes? I need some sort of a decent blade before it's worth my while starting canework, but I was wondering if it's worth investing in a 'tissue blade' or if I can get away with getting a good craft knife.
842  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Flowers and hummingbirds! on: April 15, 2007 01:28:55 PM

Flower from an ugly bracelet involving lots of pink plastic beads. Vintage green millefiori beads, artisan made red lampwork, hummingbirds from a little shop in York, old beadcaps from summat or other, you get the idea. Pre-made chain mostly hung from the openwork flower, though bits are hung from the connector on the back of the flower. Not the most complicated of pieces to put together but pretty effective.

Or so I thought. Took a LONG time working out how to arrange it so that the hummingbirds weren't headbutting or being attacked by the other beads.

What else? First 'proper' post, don't be gentle, I like concrit!

My jump ring mandrels. One never-sharpened pencil, two nails of different diameters, a stick from a game of "Pick Up Sticks" that I've had since I was a kid (random xmas present, no idea why they bothered since I live in the countryside and could have collected sticks for nothing) and the middle plastic bit from a cotton bud. They get weirder as they get smaller.

Etsy has a magic map here http://www.etsy.com/geolocator.php that you can click on to find Etsy people in your country. Also, for sellers in other countries, check their shipping - many will post abroad for a little extra. I love getting cool stuff from another country, I find it really exciting... but I have no life  Roll Eyes

I'm in the UK, where are you?

Cheesy I vaguely remember making one of these out of a sock as a kid. The stuffed sock shape makes a great horse head, though it went floppy pretty quickly as I recall. Your version rocks - I love the rainbow mane!

*does the crocodile rock*
I like the croc! Nice remodelling job, you couldn't tell it was broken! I think he'd be cool on a strand or two of dark green and black seed beads instead of a chain Wink

Gorgeous! Are the cane dangles your own creations?

849  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Good stock photos sites? esspecially harry potter! on: April 10, 2007 07:45:15 AM
Out of curiosity, what kind of things are you planning to make?

You certainly won't fnd any legitimate sites for purchasing Harry Potter or any other film/TV/etc. images for stock use. These types of photos all fall under copyright laws and if you use them in stuff that you sell you could end up sued. There is no-one from whom you can buy the rights to those kinds of images except the copyright holder (in the case of HP that will be JK Rowling and Warner Brothers) and unless you are a zillionaire you're unlikely to be able to afford that! The only way around it might be to draw your own art of the characters, and even that's fairly dodgy - you'd have to avoid using logos or anything else that fell under copyright law in the image.

For non-fan-related imagery there are plenty of stock photo sites on the web. Different photographers will have different feelings about how their work is used - some might let you use their work and only want a credit, some might want you to pay them for the right to use their photo. ALWAYS check with the photographer personally before you use their work commercially. At the very least it's polite: at worst it might help prevent you from being sued!

I know that there is a lot of fan-related stuff out there, especially for HP. In all honesty you are unlikely to be caught if you decide to use official photos, but it is up to you to decide if it is worth the risk. I would advise sticking to non-fan-related stuff that you have written permission from the artist to use (emails should be fine - print them and keep them in a folder in a safe place) if you intend to sell your work.

Sorry that this is a bit of an essay, and good luck finding images to work with!

Pretties! The white beads could be moonstone or spectrolite, a type of white labradorite.What colours do they display?
