So you're doing a 365 project. Tips!Hey everyone!So you're doing a 365 project. Tips!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Excited to finally have my 365 project done. Started it on January first last January thanks to some encouragement from JupiterLily. From the beginning of the project, I really wasn't concerned about not being able to finish it. I just wanted to challenge myself and prove that I could. Whether you're just getting into photography or have the drive of a professional, I've got a few tips that can help make the project easier to manage
Organization is HUGE. Unfortunately, I wasn't very organized for the first half of my project, which resulted in a lot of time wasted on checking the day/time photos were taken in my giant month-encompassing folders. By July I finally figured out a folder/organization system that's perfect for the project: folders for not only each month, but each day. In other words, if I was looking to post my shot from Day 15, I'd just go 2011 > January 2011 > 15. This way, you can hold yourself more accountable for taking pho
How I made the Alien fossil pendantMany people have asked how i made it so i'm gonna tell you In great detailHow I made the Alien fossil pendant4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I made it because a very nice man asked me to. Challenge accepted!
And i must admit - it really was a challenge
I have spent quite some time scratching my head and thinking 'how da hell am i gonna make this?'
So we're talking about this thing:
I started from the head.
The top was supposed to be shiny so standard wrapping was out of the question. I chose a low dome half round wire instead. That thing is SO hard to bend sideways and i had to bend it to get the head shape. After the bending battle was done i spent an hour fine tuning the shape of the head with various files.
Then there was the jaw. And the bottom of the head. The bottom should have some details so wrapping it worked fine. I measured how much wire should go into it, flattened 20ga wire, filed tiny little teeth in the front of the jaw, shaped it to get a bit of 3D action going there and wrapped it al

Beadweaving feature - beaded beadsBeaded beads can be done in any of many bead weaving stitches. The beadwork can be done over an existing bead or the beaded bead can be entirely self supporting, hollow or filled, simple or embellished, cylindrical, spherical, cubical, flat, round... whatever shape and size you want. They can be used to make the whole jewelry piece or just as an accent. Check out what our fellow deviants made and how they used their beaded beads in jewelry.Beadweaving feature - beaded beads4 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Beadweaving feature - Rock and Roll All NiteHiya all.Beadweaving feature - Rock and Roll All Nite4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a year since I wrote my first beadweaving article. Since then I've featured nearly 1500 deviations by over 100 deviants. I've covered beadweaving stitches, some non-weaving techniques, different types of jewelry and more. It doesn't happen very often that I get asked to do a particular theme. This time it was :iconvomitingunicorn: who asked me to pick some goth-punk-grunge beaded jewelry. Unfortunately, I couldn't find that many punk/grunge pieces, but I hope that this selection (the biggest one so far) will help you find what you are looking for.
By the way, does anyone know how to submit journal to art news instead personal?

Beadwork feature - Saint Patrick's DayOn my way to the end of the rainbow in search of leprechauns' pot of gold I've seen some lovely things. IBeadwork feature - Saint Patrick's Day4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
walked on a thick carpet of shamrocks, but there was no time to pick one to bring it here. Intricate knots and triquetras carved in stone took my breath away. I was offered a claddagh ring as a token of friendship and a four-leaf clover for good luck on my journey. And where did I start? I tried to bead my own shamrock.
Edit: After informing almost everyone featured here that I included their pieces I realized that in every message I wrote "tutorial" It's not even 6 AM here so I hope you'll forgive me this tiny mistake. On to the feature.

Beadweaving feature - Geometry and scienceMath doesn't sound like much fun to me. Neither does physics nor biology. But when you combine beadwork with them, you get a different view of these sciences. I wanted to show you sorta sciency side of beadwork and different geometric shapes and patterns that are rather often seen in it, and we don't usually perceive them as such. But when you think about it, it usually all boils down to basic shapes like squares, circles and triangles. But there's more - you can make pyramids, cubes, spheres, cylinders... You can make replicas of DNA and other molecules using beads and thread. Now that does sound like fun. Make sure to check out Gwen Fisher's blog - she made a tute on beaded DNA helix.Beadweaving feature - Geometry and science4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
