The smaller photos are all clickety-clicks to larger images.

All crafted items come from a non-smoking household with one lovely beagle. If you would like a gift box or bag with your jewelry purchases, just let me know and I'll include one free of charge.

Crafted Items


Vintage Watch Movement Ring - (3)
Made with a vintage watch movement. Adjustable silver-plated band. Lots of rubies visible in this beauty.

Time Flutters By Necklace - (3)
Made with vintage watch parts.

Handknit Alpaca Socks from Peru - (3)
I was told that these were knitted with 100% alpaca yarn, but some of them may be a blend - they were purchased from street/market vendors, so  I can't make any guarantees.

The pink socks are 7.5" from heel to toe and all others are 8". I've read online that that could be as small as a women's size US6, but the socks fit my US8.5 size foot fine. So maybe measure a pair of your socks and see what you think. These socks will stretch, too, and I've found them comfortable over a pair of thinner socks (so kind of like slippers).

Please claim by color - left to right: purple, green, brown, pink, rainbow. One pair of socks for three points.

Handknit Wool Socks from Peru - (3)
Both pairs are 100% wool and both are 8" from heel to toe. Please claim by color - green, blue. Three points for one pair.

Handknit Alpaca Hats from Peru - (3)
Fit an average adult head. Please claim by color - from left to right, top to bottom: red, bright blue, purple, light blue, grey. Three points for one hat or five points for two hats.

Handknit Alpaca Fliptop Mittens from Peru - (3)
Fit an average adult hand. Please claim by color - top to bottom: Yellow, Light Orange. Three points for one pair.

Handknit Alpaca Gloves - (3)
Fit an average adult hand. I have a sneaking suspicion the blue ones are an acrylic/alpaca blend, but I was told they are knit with alpaca.


Delicate Steampunk Necklace - (2)
A delicate little necklace with a vintage watch movement. I have three two of these available (two points each) and all of the slightly different watch movements have rubies visible on the front. Comes with a gold-toned chain that is approximately 18" long.

Vintage Watchface Ring - (2)
Made from a vintage Elgin watchface and an adjustable sterling silver plated ring. It's currently sized to around a 7.5. You can adjust it yourself or let me know your ring size and I'll do it for you. (I can size down to about a 4 and I think up to a size 10.) The adjustable portion of the ring is underneath the watch face, so it's not visible when wearing the ring.

Turquoise Sparrow Necklace - (2)
Sterling silver sparrow atop a turquoise stone.

Oops Octopus Necklace - (2)

Alpaca Knucks from Peru - (2)
Handknit fingerless gloves from Peru. Please claim by color - left to right, top to bottom: green, blue, black, burgundy, lime.

Handknit bag - (2)
Colors are showing a little off on my screen. What is showing up as blue in the photo is actually more of a purple color. The other colors are pretty accurate, though. This is a roomy bag with space for lots of stuff.


Antique Guns Earrings - (1)

Mini-bookmarks - (1)
Bookmarks are 3.5" tall, so they're great for both soft- and hardcover books. Contain Swarovski crystals for some sparkle! One point each, claim by name. The first photo shows the shape and length of the bookmark (which is the same for all of them), and the subsequent photos show the different charms and crystals.

Knitting, Bat, Gecko, Toadstool, Teacup


Gizmodgery Brooches - (1)
Pin-backed brooches made up upcycled materials. Sealed with Diamond Glaze for a shiny finish.

Brooch #3

Winter's Breath Jewelry Set - (1)
Bracelet and earrings set made out of glass beads and swarovski crystals.

Butterfly Memory Bracelet - (1)

CRAFT Scrabble Display - (1)
Click the photo to see more detail.

LOVE Scrabble Display - (1)
Click the photo to see more detail - great Valentine's Day present!

Happy Buddha memory bracelet - (1)

Latch-hook panels - (1)
Latch-hook panels. All are approximately 14"x14" with 1-2" of canvas edges for finishing as you like. (You could hand these on the wall as they are, or turn them into pillows, or sew the canvas edges together for a small floor rug.) Please claim by name - top to bottom: Simba, Scooby, Elmo, Donkey, Shrek. One point each or claim all five for 3 points.


Black cross memory bracelet - (0.5)
Glass pearls, metal findings and a cross charm with crystals.

Earrings - (0.5) per pair
Claim by name. "Spiders", "Green Sparklies"

Here Piggy Piggy Pendant - (0.5)
Amber tone pendant with a cute little piggy on it - oink! 

Noro Bracelet - (0.5)
Handknit bracelet with gold-toned toggle made out of Noro's Daria yarn. Click on the photos to see the cool texture of the yarn. Inspired by myklia's post here on Craftster.

Thoughts Journal - (0.5)
100 page lined journal with scrabble tiles.

Everything from non-smoking home.  I do have a small dog (dachshund), who rarely comes in contact with my craft supplies, but stray dog hairs are a fact of life around here  Wink.

I might be able to take custom orders for...
other crocheted items

All items 1 point!

Cane slice beads, choose 10:

Focal beads, choose 5:

More pictures of beads of both types here:

Knitting Soaps. (I haven't actually made and photographed these yet but you can see a picture of the mold here: http://www.brambleberry.com/molds/FLEX/knitterSoap.jpg

Made up on demand. Available scents include rose, plumeria, pearberry, vanilla, baby powder, clean and soapy, orange, mango, eucalyptus mint, jasmine chamomille, peach, bubble gum, cinnamon, ? rain, and more, ask me if you're looking for something specific. White or color of your choice.  If you want the soaps to display, they don't look as cute with exfoliants in them, but if you are actually going to use them, available exfoliants include lavendar, apricot, orange, eucalyptus, coffe, green tea, oatmeal, and more.

Small polymer clay barrettes (about 1" square), set of two:

For 3 points I'd also be happy to make up "learn to knit kits" for anyone who would like one.  They would include several skeins of yarn in cotton or acrylic, 2 sets of needles, a learn to knit book of some kind from my stash, and some of my favorite beginners patterns, plus extras!
