So, I mentioned (hehe) that I had pounded the b'jabbers out of a washer over the weekend. Very therapeutic. But, I think I may invest in some of those ear plugs swimmers use. In a small space like my craft room (which also echos amazingly) pounding on metal can bother the ears. I think I actually felt my eardrums twitching! 0_o* Anyway, after annealing, hammering and drilling holes, I colored the whole darn thing with black permanent marker and sanded off the hi-lights. I really do like it! See?
|See? SEE!? Doesn't that look AWESOME!?|
|Using beads from ZNet shows, again. I actually was invited|
to join "Level (round?) 2"... shoot, I didn't know there was
more than one level/round! I was thrilled! And I got to pick
more beads to play with! Woo HOO!
|Little more of a peek. The|
marbled beads were already
in my stash and I'm mixing
them in with the ZNet beads
|And this is the clasp. This is actually something I bought at|
Joanne's in the sewing section. I thought it would make an
excellent clasp for a necklace! I'm not wrong :)
But, you know me, I couldn't make the necklace and not make earrings. These actually lean a little to the "tribal" side of things because I already had the moonstone-looking dangles and the little bells on the ends. I just thought they would go so great together and, again, I wasn't wrong ;)
|Heat Treated Aventurine pillow squares from ZNet; dangles from |
my stash. I even used 22g steel wire and managed NOT to
stab myself in the thumb! SO proud! (heee)
So, I have more ZNet beads to put together (have another "tribal" style necklace in the works but I'm keeping that one under wraps for the moment as Zarqa is also drooling to add it to her collection... it involves beaten coins as well as ZNet beads)
What have you managed to turn out recently?
