Archive for December, 2009

Hello everyone,

I know, I go four months without posting a single thing, then I do it twice in one day…Oh well, strike while the iron’s hot (and while I’m on vacation) as they say…

This is the first metal-smithed piece of jewelry that I ever made. I took metalsmithing classes back in 2008, and this was my very first finished project. I haven’t bought any equipment to do the smithing thing on my own, but I hope to one day. This fleur de lis pendant is made of antiqued brass and some recycled wood cut out of a dollar store item. The wood has been dyed with some coffee grounds and watercolors, and sealed with clear nail polish (also from the dollar store).

Anyway, hope you guys are all enjoying the last little bits of 2009. Happy New Year everyone!

Pirate guy

Hi everyone,

Thanks to my really supportive boyfriend, I have regained the motivation to post on this blog again. It’s only been four months…… :-P

Anyway, one of my really big craft interests is crocheting little creatures, like this amigurumi pirate guy from lionbrand.com. Hopefully I’ll be able to post some patterns of my own design on this blog eventually. Anyway, hope you enjoy this one for now. Thanks for waiting guys! And please feel free to give me tips on the photography, I honestly don’t know what I am doing with that….
