I've been *very* busy getting ready for the World Science Fiction Convention in Reno next week. The last few days have had me making new necklace lanyards, necklaces and these assemblage pieces for retractable ribbon lanyards:
These pieces are pretty time consuming - there's glue involved! I use Hypo Cement and E-6000 to ensure firm hold for the itty-bitty fiddly bits - the face of the lanyard reel casing is about the size of a quarter. These have been quite popular so I wanted to have as many as possible available.
You might recognize Lucite and metal flowers (some vintage, some new) from The Beadin' Path, Tim Holtz Idea-ology charms and Vintage Jewelry Supplies (Accessories Susan) brass filigree and stampings. There are some Vintaj bits in there as well. All the crystals are Swarovski. The rest are old/antique watch parts and stampings/filigree from Steampunk Supplies on Etsy.
Which one do you like best?
