All articles for our Halloween 1st October 2nd Anniversary Issue are due by 1st September We are looking forward to meeting you. Handmade unique and uncommon jewellery made using a variety of materials including wood, silver, hemp, glass, crystal, gemstones and lampwork. I see we have some new readers, well welcome come and join us, I have lots of photos of The Garden since the last issue.
In this full-color, meticulously illustrated volume: John Lewis Jensen, designer and fabricator of one-of-a-kind ornamental edged weaponry, presents a step-by-step guide to creating your own art knife in "Desk Daggers: Don Fogg, arguably one of the best sword makers on the planet, shares his expertise in "Forging Steel from Raw Materials. It's All Here! Wednesday, December 18, 6: Saturday, December 21, 6: Monday, December 30, 8: Gas-operated and magazine-fed, it was based on a Czech design and was issued in large numbers during and after World War ll, as a section-level automatic weapon.
Offering remarkable accuracy for an LMG, the Bren had an effective range of yards, but could reach out to over 1, yards. It was generally fired from the prone position using a bipod, but could be fired from the hip when necessary. If kept clean, the Bren gave a reliable service in the harshest of environments, from the deserts of Libya to the Korean mountains in winter. As well as widespread infantry use, the Bren was widely supplied to resistance movements in Occupied Europe.
Featuring specially commissioned full-colour artwork and based on meticulous research, this is an engaging story of the iconic light machine gun that equipped British and Commonwealth forces throughout World War II and in a host of postwar conflicts, right up to the Falklands and beyond. Monday, December 30, Unfortunately, many woodworkers don't realize it! Kenneth Burton illustrates how important and efficient your table saw can be with dozens of tricks, techniques and jigs that cover everything from crafting precision joinery to accurately cutting and fitting angles.
Each technique is easy, safe and certain to save you time and money. Tuesday, December 31, Tuesday, December 31, 7: Tak zkus to to http: It feels a little bit like an adventure every time I design something new. It also appeals to my "jack of all trades" mentality. Working with stainless requires you to be a little bit of a welder, machinist, bench jeweler,. Other than your crafting, what else do you like to do? When I am not working on jewelry it is time to relax! I spend most of that time catching up with friends, watching movies, enjoying the Nashville night life, etc.
Once upon a time I was heavily involved in the theatre, but there is definitely no time for that anymore. My work occupies the overwhelmingly vast majority of my time I have also been known to read and learn new things whenever I get the chance. If you had to choose your favourite from the items you are selling, which one would it be? It currently resides on the island of Curacao along with.
Aside from that it could be any image, color, or texture that catches my eye. Most every time I close my eyes the thoughts and images come together.
When the time for a new project comes it's not uncommon for me to spend quite a few meditative hours sitting and doing all the work in my head. Do you have a favourite website? Well, Etsy would be my most frequented individual site.
I have conversations and other business to attend to on Etsy every day. Not to mention the fact that Etsy is awesome and can provide hours of eye candy. It comes highly recommended! I definitely enjoy tending to my Facebook business page with posts and updates about what is going on at MOA. Honorable mention would include Google image, which is not so much a site as it is a portal to all the wonderful photos and relevant material one can get one's hands on.
Has any person helped or supported you more than any other? Here is where I have to give a huge shout out to my parents!! Without their support and encouragement I highly doubt I could have done even half the things I have managed to do with my jewelry. Also the wonderful people who gave me my first job as a jewelry repairman. They put a torch in my hand and set me loose upon the world.
Tell us a random fact about yourself! I recently acquired a large burn across the back of my right hand from- you guessed it- making jewelry. It is definitely the largest of my many many jewelry making scars. Oh yes, she sets herself daily, weekly and monthly targets as well. I take my work very seriously — the investment of emotion, time, and yes money means that I need to keep in control and up to date.
Yet I have two toddlers, one of which will soon start school, and I feel. How do you manage? Lesley describes herself as a wife, mother, carer for elderly parents,. Then, Lesley says, the fun starts! Sounds like Val has got a good work life balance to me. Val Williams of SlickSilver works three days a week in healthcare and two days on her jewellery business.
Her husband is an artist and works on a freelance basis from home. Basically they check the weather forecast for the four days she is not in her formal job and then work on the bad days and go out on the good weather.
Housework can be a bit of a trial and so Susan employs a cleaning lady once a week and an ironing lady to keep her house in order.
I think for most people the answer is keep grounded, keep calm, decide what you have to do, set achievable goals, make time for yourself as well as your family and remember to have fun. Bandsaws, arm saws the kind for wood, not arms , routers, and a plethora of hand tools became my best friends.
By thirteen I was already known around school as the guy who could play anything on guitar and could fix anything that happened to them; and thirteen year-old boys trying to emulate Pete Townsend and Jimi Hendrix could do their share of damage.
At fourteen I started taking lessons from a really great Jazz teacher in New Jersey and it just so happened he was a luthier. It was the first time I realized that this could actually be a career option. I got excellent grades in school, but really excelled in all my music classes.
After high school I briefly attended Dorn and Kirschner Band Instrument repair school, but left after six months because I was bored out of my mind; I wanted to work on guitars, not trumpets. So I built a couple of guitars out of wood from my local hardware store, pine I think and took them to my previous Jazz teacher and, after a complete year of tormenting him day and night, he accepted me as an apprentice.
I was elated. A luthier is someone who makes stringed instruments. One had to apprentice with a master and then pass a series of gruelling tests while the council looked on. Only after successful completion could one be called a luthier and hang out a shingle for business. Fast forward several hundred years and here we are in , the year I graduated high school. I spent five glorious years working for him full-time and waiting tables at night to pay my living expenses.
But at the end of the year I got a nice letter from the I. That part has never gotten easier… or cheaper. It was then time to venture out on my own, but, when it came to seed money for my guitar business, I was as broke as broke could be.
My brother had been taking computer classes at Rutgers at the time, so I borrowed his books and taught myself to program and this was before the IBM PC, so I had to do it all on paper! I then put a resume together and applied for a programming job in the newspaper. With no experience and a somewhat dubious claim of professional training, they made me take a test to see if I was qualified… I was!
Who woulda known?
So, I started programming computers for a living, promising myself that it was only until I could save up twenty. I make my wife nuts. My wife has returned to her love of jewelry making and we now are trying to make a living as crazy, hippy, made-by-hand people.
We are tired of the rental space. I tedious forms of woodworking once read that the only difference there is. It is one of the only between an amateur and a areas of woodworking where our professional is that the amateur tolerances are measured down to was smart enough to know when the thousandth of an inch and in to quit. After some cases such as the distance all, Colonel Sanders started KFC between frets it gets down to a when he was sixty-seven; a time half of a thousandth.
Our digital when most of us give up for calipers get the most use in our shops. Making guitars is lot like writing a novel, many people want to do it, many people say they are doing it, but many never even complete their first attempt.
On a daily basis I get to work with various types of exotic wood, mother of pearl, abalone, brass, celluloid, a slew of specialized glues and adhesives, hand tools, power tools, plexiglass, electronics and lacquer. Not to mention that there are vastly different skills needed to build solidbody guitars versus flattop acoustic guitars versus archtop acoustics.
My personal favorite style to make is the archtop jazz guitar. I feel that it takes the most honed set of skills, both musical and mechanical, to produce a mastergrade instrument. Carving the top out of spruce and the back out of curly maple takes days and many times it feels as if my arms are going to fall right off. Then comes the task of bending the sides over a hot pipe. Exotic wood, especially curly maple, has so many potential fracture points that in an instant… well, more firewood.
In order to learn our craft we spend years of honing our skills with little or no money from it. The world is slowly filling with junk made by slave labor and cheap materials. As made-by-hand people, we must strive to produce products that far exceed what is factory-made. Lets not let old-world craftsmanship slip away.
People deserve more for their money than their currently getting. You can find the Denver Guitar Guy at: You 1. With round nose pliers make a slide the beads tightly next to the other as you work, keeping the small loop at the end of your spacing even and adding the memory wire. Try to get it as close as possible to the other wire charm, continue to the end.
Place a small bead next to it, leaving the little loop at the end to attach a larger charm. Gather the charms and the jump rings, and secure the charms to them. Start beading the wrapped coil. Place a larger bead, then a Smaller one, some spacers, and just make sure that you keep about the smaller distance between all the beads and your charms. It is a lot of fun, just to pair different colours,.
And there and move the beads back. At this time you should pick a large and different bead or a few ones,. As with many aspects of Japanese culture, it is believed Buddhist monks travelled to China to study, and brought paper folding skills to Japan in the Heian period There is an interesting true story of how the origami crane has now come to represent peace throughout the world…. During the Edo period , paper became cheaper to produce and the appeal of origami spread to the merchant and samurai classes.
In , Sadako Sasaki was a toddler when the atomic bomb hit her home city of Hiroshima.
Ten years later, she developed leukaemia as a result of radiation poisoning. While she was in hospital, her classmates reminded her that if she folded 1, cranes, she could make a wish to get better, so Sadako started folding whenever she felt well enough. Despite folding many cranes though, Sadako eventually lost her fight for life at the age of Biggest crane: Smallest crane: Most paper cranes: If you want to make something decent, however, you friends had suffered the loss of will need proper origami paper.
They and Westernise.
However, this made posters and stood on the Japanese origami paper is lighter was also the time when origami street asking for donations to than ordinary paper hence why spread to the West. A national newspaper is best for practicing on , and comes in many beautiful models in the s and newspaper picked up the story developed the system of and soon, donations were diagrams and arrows for folding flooding in from all over Japan that is still used today.
The and beyond, and the children pictorial nature of the diagrams raised enough to have a statue made them universally built. You can still see this statue today in Hiroshima Peace Park, of Sadako holding a giant origami crane high in the air. The statue is often swamped with strings of One of the most popular origami 1, cranes which people have models is the paper crane.
Traditionally, the crane represents long life and good. The standard size is 15cm x 15cm but you can easily cut a sheet into 4 to make more, smaller models. Designs are based on kimono patterns and usually include gold and silver detailing.
More origami goodies, kits and workshops are available from www. Thread a plain cup, a bead of your choice and another plain cup onto a headpin. Bend the headpin into a loop approximately 0. Hold the loop with the pliers and wrap the remaining headpin tightly around towards the top of the bead.
Repeat for all of your beads. Cut one 45 cm length of chain and one 52 cm. Join the ends with a 5 mm jump ring and add an 8 mm jump ring to one side and a trigger clasp to the other. Open a 5 mm jump ring and join one of your beaded headpins to the centre of the longer length of chain.
Continue to add beads in this way to create a beaded section approximately 23 cm long in the centre of the longest length of chain and 8 cm for the shorter length. The outer petals are handmade from lovely, thick, deep yellow Felt.
The centre of the flower is dark brown felt hand stitched with stunning turquoise beads. Lovingly made with felt, DMC thread and filled with dried lavender. Pink fabric flower necklace, backed with pink chiffon, trimmed with beads, buttons and pearls in various shades of pink and gold, finished with silver chain interlaced with pink chiffon.
The earrings are on gold plated fish hook ear wires and head pins. They are hung with tubular, striped, glass beads and Chinese crystals. Remove the original earring clips using your jewellery pliers or metal snips. You may need a jeweller's saw to remove the clips, but this is not generally necessary. For some earrings, especially the beaded ones, the backing is usually very easy to remove from the metal plate to which the beads have been anchored.
Vintage clip-on earrings Jewellery pliers and metal snips Metal file Bobby pin blanks with pads Strong glue such as E or two part epoxy adhesive Felt or fabric scraps 2. Carefully feel for any rough edges where the clips were removed and file down any sharp edges. Cut out a small piece of felt in a matching colour to cover the back of the earring. Glue the felt to the back of the earring and leave to dry. Once the glue has dried, decide which way you want your new bobby pin to sit and glue the bobby pin blank to the back.
Leave the glue to dry once again and then you have a beautiful, re purposed hair accessory! INTERVIEW We meet a passionate patchwork quilter who has adapted the age old technique of rag quilting to create something new, different and exciting - taking recycling and patchwork to a whole new funky level!!
Tell us about the lady behind Poppypatchwork. I am South African by birth, happily married to Andrew, with one daughter - Jessica 9. I also have three fabulous step-children - Patricia 23 , Michael 21 and Samantha We emmigrated to the UK eight years ago and we live in Maldon, Essex.
Sewing is, and always has been, my first love hobby but I also enjoy reading, occasionally knit and do cross stitch. As a family we are keen cyclists and love being outdoors so take advantage of good weather whenever we can. I have been a passionate patchwork quilter for 21 years now and have a fairly extensive scrapbook of photos to keep track of all the quilts that I have made.
I do particularly love heavy fabrics with texture though and about two years ago I saw a ragged quilt on the Internet made out of plain denim squares. I loved the look of it and just had one of those lightbulb moments thinking "if I made a piece like that I could then lay a bag pattern on it and make a bag".
But the plain denim was a bit boring for me so I hunted the charity shops for embroidered denim clothes and started cutting them up!! I have included a photo of Jess with a backpack on her back - that was the second item I made using my new idea.
And it's grown from there Initially I just made bags and backpacks for friends and family but everybody who saw them raved about them so much and encouraged me to start thinking about selling them.
I now have them listed on www. My shop name is Poppypatchwork. My husband and I are great believers that one should have a passion in life - something that you thoroughly enjoy doing, just for you - something that gives you time to switch off from the stress and hustle and bustle of everyday life and allows you time to think, reflect and relax.
His is cycling, mine is sewing. I have a fabulous little sewing room and even if it's just an hour a day, which it often only is, I disappear up there, put the radio on softly and get involved in creating something new. I find it very therapeutic, I switch off from my hectic life and chill, and, the bonus is I have something pretty and useful at the end!!!
I haven't ever entered any competitions etc. See picture. I transferred a series of photos from their lives together over the 40 happy years and designed them into a quilt. The next achievement was my first sale on Etsy to a lady in America - you cannot believe the thrill I got out of that - it is so flattering when someone likes your item enough to dig deep into their pocket and give you their hard-earned money for something that you have made.
And that feeling never goes away - I get so excited with every sale! My favourites are my "boho slouchy denim patchwork shoulder bags" - I have a couple that I have made for myself and they are such roomy, versatile, comfy bags to use. Where does your inspiration come from? I have a huge collection of denim and embellishments now thanks to a very tolerant husband!! I also love browsing on Etsy and that.
There isn't a day that goes by that I am not awestruck, impressed and inspired by the beautiful things that people all around the world are making. Yes, without a doubt www. My husband and family, without hesitation!! Jessica insists she has the cleverest mummy in the world, and of course, I do agree with her!!!!
I loooove chocolate and drink too much coffee! No-one will ever have the same item as you, each one is entirely unique and takes many hours of happy planning, patch-sourcing and stitching to create the ultimate item. I have my amazing husband to thank for our current way of life an ex Royal Engineer who knows no bounds! Since we built our houseboat, Zulu, the water and the riverside flora has taken over though. I have so many inspirations but the water takes away the urgency! By sculpting her head and face a piece at a time I think I managed this — but her facebook fans had a sleepless night after seeing the first photos of her partially formed head and headless body!
Life at the Little Floating Craft Company is always evolving, like the old creatures from the river slime! I indulge my love of all crafts and use whichever medium inspires me including cake and sugarcraft! I print my own fabric, create textile goodies, make jewellery, create luscious cards and gift tags… anything is fair game! There is no pressure here on the river to meet expectation — I can be truly free to create what I feel, whatever that may be.
Take a sandwich and a drink and stay for an hour or two. See what moves you. You may be surprised where you end up! Shall we have coffee today as you are here early and some nice chocolate biscuits, lets indulge, well it is summer. I see we have some new readers, well welcome come and join us, I have lots of photos of The Garden since the last issue.
Well it was rather dry last month and the hydrangeas were suffering they are a little smaller this year.
So there I was doing the rain dance, praying for rain and yes I got my wish and down it came. The Garden really enjoyed it and went into overdrive, and so did the weeds, there is always a down side. My better half and I also got a little project done.
We had a new Shower fitted in the house and were left with the old shower tray and down by one of the sheds. It was a bit scrappy, so he dug a hole big enough to fit the tray in, I know you do not need a photo then he sealed the drain to make it watertight, I placed stones around the edge and some washed gravel in the bottom and filled it with water, purchased some pond weed and what do you have?
A pond. I put some stones in the bottom as a shelter for any little creatures, but so far nothing has taken up residence. What do you think to this plant with the butterfly on it. It really is beautiful and has a strong perfume or should I say smell as it does tickle my nose a bit. It is privet which is normally clipped close as a hedge but like everything in The Garden it is left to do its thing and is full of flowers this time of year.
My better half will prune it back in September. I thought you would like to see the bog as it looks so nice and cool. It never fails to surprise me how many shades of green there are in nature. At the moment the roses are still flowering, and the hydrangeas are coming out, also the apples and pears are coming on fast.
The main job is the dead heading which is so important if you wish your plants to keep flowering, but boy do they take some keeping up with. Well time seems to have run out on me again, thank you for taking the time to join me in The Garden. See you all again soon. Your green fingered friend. A little project The cotton lavender has also overflowed onto the path, so I just cut it back and from the clippings selected some cuttings.
As you see it is so easy. I take a lot as not all root and if you have too many, well give them to your friends and relations, we all love plants, especially when they are free. Take off lower leaves, plant around the sides of a large pot in compost plus a little grit, top dress with grit, water and leave in the shade. Take your CD and cover the labelled side with glue. I find a glue stick works better than wet glue as this tends to bubble the paper. Make sure you go right to the edges.
Place your CD glue side down onto the back of your chosen paper, smoothing out the paper so there are no bumps. Leave the glue to dry for a little while and then cut the paper carefully around the edge of the CD. You can use a craft knife, but I find it easier using scissors. Using a pair of small scissors, carefully cut a small hole where the centre of the cd is. Make sure you do not cut it to the same size as the hole in the CD as this will be too big for your clock mechanism!
Now the fun part, decorating the face! You can use whatever you like. Here I am using stickers and glitter. After you have decorated the face,you can start to add the numbers. For this you can use number stamps, rub ons, stickers,anything you want really. For this clock I have used little gems.
Start with number 12 then 3, 6 and 9. You can either leave it with only the 4 numbers a quarter face or you can continue and add the rest making sure you have equal spacing between them. If you are using gems it is best to use a clear drying glue. Once you are happy with the face and any glitter or glue is dry you can add the mechanism and handles.
Push the spindle through the centre of your clock face and attach using the washer and nuts and then gently push on the handles, starting with the hour hand, then the minute and lastly the seconds handle. Now all you need to do is hang your clock on the wall or display it on a small plate stand and you are done!

During August and September it is on August 14th, If you are interested in a pitch, you can get in touch with Maxine on the contact details below: This summer we focus on work by seven artists who employ traditional materials and techniques of textiles and ceramics, but manipulate and twist them into different forms, altered meanings and new directions.
Saturday 13 August, 11am — 5pm Free entry for visitors Information: Dear Creative Crafting, When I was a little girl my mom bought us basket making sets which included cardboard frames, plastic sticks and paper strips to weave with. I have recently been looking for these and can't find them anywhere: Many thanks, xXx Womble xXx. Thank you for your question.
I think these are the kits you spoke of: These kits don't seem to be available any more but there is a wealth of information online about basket weaving with ribbons. Here is a wonderful tutorial that I found on http: Woven Basket Materials for basket approx. Cut Grosgrain ribbon into 18" lengths. There will be thirteen.
Reserve one for handle. Remaining twelve will be woven together into basket. Read through directions entirely before beginning. With ribbon woven as illustrated, tighten woven square so that there is little or no space between pieces of ribbon see illustration 2.
Glue at eight points marked with letters see illustration 3. Points B, D, F, and H will become bottom corners of basket. Points A, C, E, and G will turn up and begin to form sides. Piece should be turned over so that flat side facing up in Illustration 3 becomes base and faces down.
With piece flat again, pick up point A see illustration 4 illustration shows piece without free ends of ribbon. Hold point A up until triangle H-A-B is approximately perpendicular to woven base see illustration 4. Pick up point C until its triangle is also perpendicular. You will be "filling in" between points A and C. With this space filled in, turn piece so that C is in A's place.
Continue around in this fashion until entire basket has been woven. Tighten weaving of basket sides as for base see illustration 2, step 4. With points A and C held upright, the ribbons extending Following Illustration 6, top edge should be trimmed into from ends of woven piece will points and overlapping ribbon be folding into each other edges should be glued above corner B. Following together. Illustration 5, begin to weave loose ends together following Four top trimmed corners pattern established in base should be turned to inside piece.
Work one ribbon at a along fold line shown in time and pin to hold when illustration 6.
All corners are the same and will be worked in exactly the same manner. If so, then you've come to the right place. If we can't answer it, then we will do our best to find someone that will. You can write your or email them to:. If you are interested in basket weaving this site is definitely worth a look: Knitting with cotton is perfect for the summer time. Cotton is a light weight fibre that is great for summer clothing, dishcloths and accessories.
Cotton can be dyed in a number of different colours or you can buy it in colours already dyed which is great for a number of garments. It is also strong, durable and machine washable which is great for washcloths or dishcloths as they can be re-used.
Tips for working with cotton Try wooden or bamboo needs if your yarn is splitting and or you find it too slippery. Because cotton can be somewhat bulky, try to start the new ball at the edge of the work rather than the middle. Take frequent breaks as cotton can be harder to work with on your hands.
Always swatch for your project you are working on. Fused glass is a great medium to work in as it can have a functional use as well as be decorative. All these can enhance a project. The stress within the glass just became too much!
