Hey everyone, this is a repost that i posted a long while ago. Craftster Diane B pointed out that i might get more views if i had pictures, and now im like a full fledged member, so it will be easier to see everything :]

heres the origonal post, now with pictures <3
So i havent made jewelry in years, and my old art teacher and i recently met up, and she just sparked my creativity. Also, i havent posted enough to be allowed to post pictures yet, im really sorry, because i know it is kind of a pain to have to go to each link. But if you do check them out, please comment, id really appreciate it!
I apologize for the terrible pictures, but my camera isnt working, so i used my web cam haha

I know that should belong in the clothing section because its sort of.. a remodeled t shirt haha but im including it here, because it could be an intense necklace too, right?

This necklace took me all night, and then some. it took alot of wire, patience, and bandaids

These also took a while, and alot of the beads are paper. it was alot of fun!

thanks for looking, please comment <33

Does the t-shirt necklace stretch over your head or does it have of closure of some sort? They all look fantastic! Great job!

The necklace thing just slips over my head, its very strechy because its t shirt and everything. and it was so easy to make- just grab an old tee shirt, and cut it into one long continuous strip (minus the hem, cut that off first.)
then just pull the tshirt tight or taunt or whatever you want to say, so it will curl up into itself like a tube- otherwise it looks kind of weird.
Anyway just loop it up and tie a little knot, and youre ready to go :]

Hey, glad to see this post reincarnated  Grin

They're all creative and well done!  You should accidentally meet up with your old art teacher more frequently...lol.

(As I mentioned in the other post, I had thought that the paper beads were polymer clay because they could look like that with certain techniques, but these pics seem a bit larger so a little more obvious anyway.)

I'd think it wouldn't be a bad idea to post just the "t-shirt necklace" one in Reconstructed Clothing since those folks would be really interested and it's a clever idea (and it's only one of these pics anyway, or maybe you have one in a different color or with embellishments or gatherings, etc.?).

and there were no clay beads present, but we have made clay beads before. i agree shes such an indie lady! i love her!
