Bottled Up For Knitting

I do not only have yarn stash. I also have a lot of jewelry stash from when I made jewelry from polymer clay. I once bought some tiny vials to use.

When I discovered them again I realised that they will be great stitch markers as well as jewelry.

So, I made a couple to see how they work. One of them is made with one of my wedding photos and tiny glass balls inside.

I added a fresh water pearl and shiny glass beads. It is quite spesial to use this one as I knit a little now.

I also made one for a friend with the blessing inside a long with tiny glass balls as well.

This is one of those stich markers that can stand alone and that works great as a gift.

Not another stitch marker will be alike. I fancy that.

Planing others as well. Found a butterfly wing in the fur of a neighbours cat.

The only thing is that whatever I put inside it has to be tiny. Really tiny. And that is the great fun of it.

Out Of The Closet

They were hiding back in the closet. But suddenly popped up in the back of my head. 

In 2010 I made a necklace I used once. Then it broke and the beads were stashed away. Back in a closet.

Nothing is like finding already made beads and put them together again for a bracelet. 

This is truly mixed media. Polymer clay, decoupage and felted beads for a light and colorful accessorie.

Since my knitting is a little off for too many months more my brain is obviously trying to find new ways to get that creative itching off... LOL!!

I could actually have made this again if it was not for the felted beads. 

It took a lot of power to get them properly felted. 

I used rowing to make them and a lot of soap and water. But it was so much fun. 

The decoupage beads are made of napkins and those white light beads you find in craft stores. 

Decoupage is actually quite fun to do. And alomst anything can be decoupaged.

Anyway - I suddenly have a new bracelet. Not that I need more. Or something like that... LOL!!
Some left over beads could easily become another bracelet. I may have some other stashed beads that match...
