LEGO Jewelry on Etsy.com

December 7, 2009

Snowman Earrings

I’ve been creating jewelry of some sort for over twenty years. About as long as I’ve been doing LEGO as a matter of fact. 😉

But up until recently I hadn’t delved into expanding my expertise into the LEGO jewelry. At the insistence of my family members I decided I’d give it a try.

One of the best craft selling sites is Etsy.com. There you can find anything and everything from jewelry and quilts to notebooks and handmade soap. There are quite a lot of LEGO jewelry making people out there and a lot of people looking for LEGO jewelry.

So if you are looking for something unique and different this year like LEGO Micro Snowman earrings or a LEGO Wreath Pin to add as a stocking stuffer under your Christmas tree, check out my Etsy shop Folded Fancy Creations.

Pirate Advent Calendar Day 7

Now that Polly is taken care of Captain Brickbeard approaches his first mate Janey Blackheart to ask if she will accompany him on his quest to find what is waiting where the X marks the spot. Some have said that having a woman aboard your ship is bad luck and making her your first mate is foolhardy but Brickbeard doesn’t care.

For there is a secret that only they two know. Janey Blackheart is Brickbeard’s long lost daughter. As ruthless and cunning as her father she will one day rule the seas in his stead.

Dissolution of a monastery 1536

I’ve posted several of SlyOwl’s creations before, and his latest does not disappoint.

There are a whole slew of model techniques that boggle the mind in how well they are executed here and the subject matter as always is something a little different (in a good way). 😉

A few things to pay attention to are the chandeliers, the fountain, the roof, the windows, and the archways.
