A Birthday Post

Last week I showed off my prototype for a keychain...


(I needed to replace my keychain. And some things I just have to make myself.)

I made a couple modifications, and it's done...


But, of course, I wasn't done with one. I have a few skeins of this metallic yarn, so I then had to make another...


And another...


I showed these to my roommate, and she said it needed "bling".

Bling?

Um... Yeah, I can do bling...


And one more...


This is what happens when I get in the right sort of mood. I'll be selling these. I hope to get them listed in my Etsy shop this week sometime. Ideally. I'll just have to see how this week goes.

In case you're wondering about today's post title, today is my birthday.

    1. Well, when someone says "bling", beads are the first thing I think of.

  9. I agree with Hilary - they look like some mythical coiled snakes, especially with the ring and holes providing a "face". Very cool!

  10. All birthdays are meant to be celebrated!

    Like the key chains. Could you put a metal wire in center with yarn around? This would give them some durability, able to shape around a wrist.

    1. But with wire, they wouldn't stretch, so it'd be harder to get on a wrist. I would think. (I've got big wrists, so I can't wear things like bangles. It colors how I look at things.)

      Wire is doable, but a bit awkward, I'd think.

    1. Thanks. And yeah, you're the third to say it looks like a snake. I just need to figure out how to add eyes to really play up the snake angle ;)
