There IS Crafting on this Craft Blog

I've been working pretty diligently on a new knitted item I had an idea for a while ago, but as I waited for the finished items to block this weekend, I moved onto another idea I'd been meaning to tackle.

I purchased these paper flowers without having any clear idea what to do with them. (You know how it is, you see something pretty and you just gotta have it!) In my head, I saw what could be the foundation for a sort of statement-piece necklace.

Embroidered and bedazzled

Now that I've got it all glued and embroidered together, I'm not sure if I'm completely sold on my original necklace idea but I am really happy with the way the detailing turned out. The Doomed mentioned something I hadn't thought of for the chain part of the necklace and suggested I should also try making brooches with the flowers. Look at him getting craftily-inclined with my girly items.

Awaiting assembly

I'm also liking the look for hair clips. Now I just have to see how it holds up to varnishing and, of course, get more supplies!

  1. Very nice. I like the idea of the necklace. But I most especially love the idea of the Doomed contributing!
