coming full circle

I've crocheting in circles! Making belts bohemian/ belly dance and big circles that were originally designed to be a trivet, but I think it would be very cool on the back of a coat.............they have a tiny mirror in the center and they're backed with felt and hand-stitched.....

I'm inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead right now so here's a little jewelry tutorial

These photos show step by step how to create a simple little necklace I created. The festive skull is crafted out of  Sculpey II clay:


next attach the clay piece to the jewelry finding with a jump ring (be sure to make the hole in the clay before baking :)


open up the end of an eye pin and attach to finding


load up the eye pin with a variety of beads and close the bottom end of eye pin with a small loop. I used a combination of about 5 or 6  different beads and mixed up the order for each pin, so they look varied but yet unified.


continue adding beads on eye pins of various lengths till you have filled all the spaces on the finding.

Have fun!

Back from Burning Man


Well, I'm back from Burning Man, which was the cause of quite a long delay in posts :)

As always, it was an intense (and fun) fun experience and completely different than my original plans. Somehow I never did find any of the people I know locally, but made some great new friends......... I made these fun chokers as gifts; inspired by a design on the AntiCraft website, they were a huge hit

fun sites!


While I'm working on a fun project to post here, thought I'd add a website that has free patterns for a slightly different take on crochet: http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/
