Jewelry Jamboree

As usual, the prospect of finishing a corset is making me want to procrastinate. So instead of doing much work on my Fluttershy costume, I did some random jewelry making projects this week.

First up, I received a great gift from my friend, Kelly – Mario question mark box earrings, for my upcoming Disco Mario Princess Peach cosplay. Only “problem” was, the earring holes in my ears closed years ago. But I decided to remove the pierced hoops and attach the earring bits to some clip ons.

After that success, I decided the Fluttershy choker needed some clip on earring accessories.

And then I decided there was a lot of potential in Sculpey clay. My friend, Hannah had a birthday last week, and is a huge Harry Potter fan. So I made her a pair of Ravenclaw earrings and a pendant!

Man, some of the tiny clay work was crazy on these!  I added some beads and clip on pieces to the earrings as well.

This went well enough, so I decided my Plants vs. Zombies shirt needed a necklace to match. Friday night I spent making some various plants out of clay as necklace charms.

I think I need to make a couple more to finish off the piece. If you play Plants vs Zombies (which is a fantastic tower defense game), which plants should I make for the rest of the necklace??

Also, to feel somewhat productive with my weekend, I sculpted Fluttershy ears out of Sculpey which I will glue onto a headband to wear over my wig.

I think this week I will buckle down on my waist cincher and try to finish it up so I can move on to the top and my Angel prop, then Liono.

Oh, and in other board gaming news, we played the next few missions of our Star Wars: Imperial Assault campaign over the weekend. It was fun – check out this video I posted to Facebook – and we’ll continue sometime in March. If you think you are interested in the game, don’t forget Boardgamegiveaway.com is going to be running a contest in March to give away a free copy! If you can’t wait for that Rebel on Imperial action, there is always Amazon! 😉

    You had a productive weekend! I’m partial to the Wall Nut in Plants vs Zombies. I also think the cherry bomb would be cute on a necklace.

    I love your earrings!

      I was debating the Cherry Bomb as well. Wall nut is a good plan, certainly simple enough. I was also thinking the ice peashooter (i don’t remember its name),.
