1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Take your camera to work day! (earrings and beaded trees) on: July 09, 2009 06:15:47 PM
I recently got a new camera, and between that and wanting a picture of some of my jewelry I decided to take it to work (at a bead store) and get some photos. Cheesy

Made with chain and jump rings.  I also have some that are jump rings about that size connected by wirewrapped swarovskis.

My first attempt at a tree pendant.


Aaaand a silver one.

In Carrboro at Carr Mill Mall there's a beading store and a fabric/sewing store. I don't know much about them, but the fabric store is called Mulberry Silks (www.mulberrysilks.net). I've only been in a couple times for brief periods, but they have a great selection and just got in some cute Japanese fabrics. They also have TONS of buttons. I have to go back and learn more before making any judgments though.

I'm a little biased (I work there) but I honestly think the Original Ornament in Carrboro is the best bead store I've ever been to, and I've been to all the area ones plus stores in five states and two countries.  check us out at: http://www.theoriginalornament.com

I'm not much of a sewer, but mulberry's has some amazing fabric.  And while you're in the mall, definitely stop by Katie's for a pretzel. Smiley
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Re: Peace birds on: June 06, 2008 03:38:29 PM
I love that design. Fantastic job. Everyone talks about that scary thing called screenprinting, and I dared to try it once. Too complicated. maybe I was doing it wrong. Helpppp!

I had a ton of trouble getting the emulsion to burn just enough, and after that I had trouble getting the print to not blur.  I think you just have to experiment around with inks and techniques, or have someone who knows what they are doing to help you.  Something as simple as this could also be done with freezer paper stenciling, which is a LOT easier.

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Aung San Suu Kyi t-shirt on: May 20, 2008 01:52:02 PM
My friend recently came home from college and we celebrated by tie-dying t-shirts.  We were a little disappointed with the results (the dye we bought was terrible), so today in my rainy day summer reading procrastinationness I decided to add a stencil.  I've been meaning to make a shirt dedicated to the Burmese pro-democracy leader Suu Kyi for a while now...she's someone I really admire and not enough people know about her.  I hope that wearing this shirt will get people to ask questions!

I can't decide whether to cut the neckline and sleeves off or just leave it...what do you guys think?
