A couple things I sent my partner for the Greek Mythology swap... TOTALLY stealing some of her pics Smiley

First a Medusa mask, made out of Papier-mâché and paint, mardigras beads, paper, light rock crystals, and brass wire for her nose and eyebrow "piercings"

The first pic is hers, then a pic with my boyfriend modeling it and then a close up pic with me modeling it. Sorry for the crappy cell phone quality of the 2nd two pics, this was before I got my new camera.

Next, my vision of Perseus' Sword
Its a painted toy sword with a fake greek coin on each side. Where its stamped made in china on the other side, I crossed out china and wrote Olympus. because I'm a dork like that.

The other two things I made for her are these ATC's on a stick... cardboard, paint, bits and bobbles, fabric glued to painted chopsticks, I think these would be great for fake flower arrangements, additions to gardens, etc. Have no idea what they'll be used for though... I'd probably put them in my hair because I'm weird. Or in the extra spaces in my toothbrush holder or in a pencil cup... I'm sure she'll find a use for them.

And finally I found one of those little sandal keychains so I decided to paint it as Hera's Golden Sandal, which is a common symbol for her. I'm not listing it on the jewelry board because A., I don't want to make a whole post for it, and B., I didn't know what kind of necklace my partner liked so I just put it on a purple ribbon and sent it like it is. I actually included black cord with findings too... She listed purple and black as her fav colors so I thought I'd include both.

so cool!

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

I really love the necklace.  I love anything clash of the titans.  Your swap partner must have been really pleased. Smiley
