6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / frostie bottlecap jewelry on: September 14, 2008 01:19:12 PM
a friend who had been happily married forever, just recently lost her beloved partner--i took one of the last photos of them together, mounted it in a bottle cap, covered it with clear plastic (circle from bottled water) and designed them to be reversible--i used the 'frostie blue cream' because my grandson occasionally drinks these, i thought they were cool, so had kept a few of them--and so i could call them 'frostie, cause willi's so cool'  when i send them to willi--hope she likes them!

beaded with glass beads various colors of blue and silver--long so can be slipped over head

necklace with earrings, showing they can be reversible (earwires not shown)

comments, suggestions welcome!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / suncatcher/ornament on: September 14, 2008 01:07:29 PM
not sure if this is the correct place to post this or not, but here it is:
i made this suncatcher/ornament for my sister who lives in texas, and all the rest of our family live here in arkansas--the photo is of her son, wife, and kids---dress in western clothes--my sister hangs lots of little sunsnatchers, and ornaments in the tropical potted garden she has on the corner of her patio--she's gonna love this one!

used silver art wire, silver glass seed beads, large silver sequin, and circle from water bottle--then fashioned a clasp so she can hang it whereever she wants

detail of heart with photo

thanks for looking! comments welcome
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / repurposed watch bezel-images galore on: September 14, 2008 12:56:18 PM
i did this for my sister who lives in texas, while all the rest of our family live here in arkansas---the photo is of her son, wife, and grandkids all dress in western clothing--she will enjoy this!
started with an old watch--took it apart--kept the bezel, discarded the 'workings'

then i wire wrapped the outside, and edges where the strap was attached, the beaded around it with silver glass seed beads

finally, i beaded a 'bracelet' and added a hand created clasp--the wire is all silver colored artistic wire

i saw a post for this idea, and i think it was here on craftster's but can't find the original post--so for whoever it was that gave me this wonderful idea--thank you!
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 'warrior' acrylic on canvas on: May 25, 2008 11:28:23 AM
recent painting done in reference to psalms 103:20 regarding the angels--the stretched canvas is approx 2' x 3' and done with acrylic paints--the final gloss varnish gave me some hassels while trying to photograph, but i really was happy with how this one turned out--now in private collection
