kerravonsen: Crafty: a medly of beads (craft)

Mostly resin, but some bits weren't. (Note that I have other pendants I completed this week lying around waiting to be photographed. Soon. I may or may not post them when I do so, depending on interest.)

(later: okay, obviously no interest (sigh))

lotsa resin )

I used up a lot of gloves, toothpicks, paper towels and tissues today. I've also been watching a bunch of youtube videos by this guy, for fun, not because I could make any of his DIYs, due to lacking the aforementioned workshop full of power tools. But this guy and this other guy even more make me wish that I had a lathe.

This is my entry in the current M.A.I.L. contest: "Steampunk". A maille-wrapped cane.

I am pleased I got it finished before the deadline, it was worrying me a bit.

I finished the necklace, and photographed it, and entered it into the M.A.I.L. Contest #28: Graduation (link goes to my entry).

I call it the "Oxford Comma" necklace, because it is full of red agate commas.

Or perhaps I should say, it is full of red agate commas because it is an Oxford Comma necklace.

Today I finished the "hex holder" I was making for my new Settlers of Catan wooden hexes. It wasn't intended to hold all of them, indeed, I had no idea how many of them it would hold, I just wanted to make it reasonably tall.

I've been writing long enough to be pretty clear how I go about it. With my symbolic jewellery, it's only been a few years. But I've made enough pieces that I think I have a decent idea about how I go about it, and the interesting thing is that it isn't very much like my writing process at all. Some things may be similar, since they are both creative processes, but the pacing and weight are different.

Ooops! Here's another thing I made in December, but didn't post because I hadn't even photographed it yet!

Two more items which I made in December, but forgot to post about because the pictures were still on the camera.

The start of December, I finished off a number of half-done projects so that I could contribute to the "Creating A Welcome" craft market which was raising money for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, which had been pointed out to me by [livejournal.com profile] reynardo which we had both intended to make gifts for, but other things happened... so I was making gifts at the start of December. December was also the month of last-minute gifts and of one more fan fest.

So that was a year full of craft! I'd forgotten the huge amount I'd done, not just when I was off work, but all through the year. So that's good - I have Accomplished!

October was all-out crafting, since I was feeling a bit better in my recovery. The big thing this month was SCALESssssss, but there was also maille, crochet and general jewellerying.
