Violetcrime memento mori necklaces & other stuffs

Post by hellcity » Mon Sep 27, 2010 12:58 pm

Update 30/11/10: This is my memento mori series. I'm slightly baffled by the fact that EVERYONE loves the freaking heart one! I like my plague doctor & skull :( LOL. Anywah... Pictures are the usual excellent quality iPhone ones taken at night to make them extra shite.

Another update - I've started doing hair bows, clips, earrings & necklaces. And I'm doing different coloured bats too ;) This is my bows/etc linkage - http://www.facebook.com/missmaisie and http://www.facebook.com/missmaisie?v=app_138996027389

This one is Opiates ;)

UPDATE: I've bought a black Xmas tree. I decided, because I am just so goth, I needed bat decorations. Naturally I couldn't find any. So I decided to make 'em. This is my first one. His name is Rupert. Since he was so cute, I HAD to turn him into a hair clip heh. He's my new fave thing. Totally hand made from the stencil to the sewing to the sequins :D I'm going to make like 15 or so of them. I should probably get started. He took me about an hour. Might have to break out the sewing machine....

I took a break from working on dreads tonight to make some hair clips to go with them. They're to wear for my b'day on the weekend. I forgot how much I love making these. Except for the glue I'm now sporting on my nails. And pants. And lounge...heh.

I'll probably make a few more to wear in a cluster. What d'you think?

Those flowers are gorgeous...are they made from folded ribbon? The craft bug in me is intrigued and wants to have a go :lol:

They're folded squares of fabric :) The best tutorial I can point you to is this one here (not mine). It's the most thorough. Though there are LOADS on the www. Just google 'kanzashi' and you'll find 'em :) You'll need fabric, glue, starch, bits to pretty them up and a crapload of patience lol ;)

When it comes to crafty things, I have tons of patience...until I've mastered something, then I need to learn something else :lol:

EDIT - and thanks for the link, I have tons of random scraps of fabric :)

In that case, you'll rock it. It's one of the very few things I have patience with. And ONLY when the kidlets are in bed :lol:

Enjoy!

Oh, if you really want to drool, check these Etsy links out. They're absolutely *beautiful*!

Gorgeous stuff....I'll have to check out that tutorial. I've got so many random fabric scraps laying around I don't know what to do with.

That's not so much a problem here in Aus. No one has really seen a lot of them around here. BUT it's starting to bother me enough that I'm going to start casting my own designs soon. Skeletons and spooky stuff ahoy! :D

Not necessarily. I have bobby pins, a few hair forks, brooch bits, headbands and ribbons they can go on. People can pretty much request what they want :)
