1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: "Silly Banana Candy" Anyone??? on: February 16, 2008 08:45:07 AM
I'm sorry if you've been asked this a thousand times, but I was wondering how you made the holes in your pendants. And if I want to put a little hook thingy to put it on a chain, should I do it while it's curing or screw it in afterwards? And I also thought about making pendants using bottlecaps, so what do you think is best, making a hole in the pendant or somehow putting a little hook?
Thank you so much! Your stuff is awesome and so inspiring.
2  CANADA / Quebec / silicone molds in Montreal? on: February 14, 2008 07:53:42 PM
Hello everyone! I want to make resin jewelry using silicone molds. Not the ones you make yourself but some with different shapes, I guess it could be the kind you would use to make ice cubes. I went to Omer deSerres and I went to places that sell kitchen stuff, but they just don't seem to exist anywhere. Does anybody know where I can find them? Thanks and have an awesome valentine's day!

It turned out really cute. Congratulations. Do you usually sew without patterns?
I don't have a lot of experience in sewing as I started about 6 months ago. I didn't use a pattern for most of the things I made, but they were all reconstructed from old t-shirts I had. This is the first thing I make from scratch and without a pattern. I had to find a way to make it with the small pieces of fabric I had and this is what I came up with. It's basically a square for the back and two large strips of fabric for the front and the straps. It's in fact a lot simpler than what it looks like.

And thanks to all of you for the nice comments, it's really encouraging!

Good afternoon!
I made this using the fabric I had left from pants I made for my friend. This is the first top I made from scratch and without a pattern. I'm really satisfied with the result. Tell me what you think!

Thank you for looking! Have a nice day!

Good Evening everyone!
Last friday, I bought a bunch of stuff at Salvation Army. I bought a huge polo and transformed it to make this:


I feel like it's missing something though, any ideas?

I absolutely adore your pillowcases. I voted for you! This is such a great idea and it's incredibly well embroidered! Good Luck!

it's really beautiful! is it hard to wrap the stones that way? i want to make some peruvian inspired jewelry now! Smiley

Not too much because there's a slit on the side of the stones, so you just wrap the wire around.  Smiley

Did you make this with the metal wire that you twist with pliers? Cause I make jewelry with like that too, except the style is not the same. But your stuff is super inspiring! I never thought about making stuff like that. This is sooo cool, I'm gonna try it this week.  Smiley If you want to check mine out, the post is called "Peru inspired jewelry".
I bought the wire in Peru, but I don't know where to get it in Montreal. What kind of store did you buy yours in?
Thank you so much!

Good Morning!
When I was in Peru, a guy showed me how to make this jewelry with metal wire. So I bought all the material (the wire, pliers and little stones) to make it.

That's the material:

My first attempts at making stuff out of this were absolutely unsuccessful but after a little practice I made my first earrings:

This summer I also made matching earrings and ankle bracelet but I haven't taken pictures of these yet, but they're coming soon.

Passed friday, I made this bracelet that I'm really proud of (it took me about 5 hours to make all the small parts and assemble them:

and here's a close-up of the details:

Please, tell me what you think!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my first thai fisherman's pants! on: September 30, 2007 02:46:43 PM
Hello everyone!
My friend asked me to make him these fisherman's pants so I bought some fabric and improvised a pattern from the ones I already had. I started yesterday and finished this morning. I don't know if you guys ever tried those pants but they're suuuper comfy. I don't really like the color, but it's my friend's choice. The fabric ended up to be more shiny than I thought...  I hope he's gonna wear them. I still can't post pictures  Angry Anyways, here is the link:
Modeled by me:

the front

the back (it looks weird on the picture, it's better in real)

What they look like on the floor

Comments, criticism and suggestions appreciated
