123D Jewelry Contest missing

The 123D  jewelry contest has been missing from the contest page for 2 days. I can still access the page if I use the link on my "you page" where my entry is listed.  The judging was supposed to be over on the 17th (after it was changed from the 15th). When the judging started, I saw that one of my ibles was a finalist, but did not receive an email from Jessyratfink alerting me to this as I have with several other recent contests. My finalist entry has an award icon on it and it has not won any other contests.  All of these things are odd, and I was just wondering...What's up with the jewelry contest?

Jewelry tools for sale

My boss recently purchased all the tools from a jewelry shop that was going out of business and subsequently has a lot of tools that he is parting with. While these are primarily jewelry tools many of them are perfect for prop building. He has some nice workbenches, casting equipment, benchtop laser welder, a large polishing station, plating rectifier, rolling mills, benchtop lathe, flexshaft motors/handpieces, microscopes, engraving tools and all kinds of small hand tools. There's too much to list here- I have a complete listing of everything with photos and pricing. Some of this equipment is pretty big/heavy so local pickup would be preferred (Boulder, Colorado) but he said he'll ship equipment if need be. After downloading and viewing the list if there are any questions just message me and I'll try to answer them as best as possible or have my boss email you. Thanks!

champagne topper jewelry

On our wedding night my wife and I had a bottle of Vieve Cliquot champagne. I still have the topper that holds the cork to the bottle. I can imagine it being made into a bracelet or pendant for my wife but would have no idea how to go about it. If anybody has any ideas I would appreciate it. The topper has a portrait of the widow cliquot on it and reminds me of a cameo. Our five year anniversary is coming at the end of this month and I would love to make her something out of this for it.

Barbie Tit Necklace

Ha, got yer attention with that subject didn't I?But it's true. Check out Margeaux Lange's site for more pictures. These are strangely gorgeous...Clearly she's got the jewelry-making skills to do a top-notch job but I think someone with as much imagination but less metalworking skill could do a reasonable imitation.

Mariko Kusumoto

I have been trying to create color stripes in the same manner as Mariko Kusumoto. Cotton and silk thread have not worked. I think I need a different tool to apply polyester dye or different thread. The second image is messy but it was to test the strength of the dye on the bubbles. I think my problem now is how to draw the lines using polyester dye before steaming.

Project: Nicolas Cage necklace!

So one of my favorite things ever is Nicolas Cage. A friend at work told me I should put his picture in a locket and I 1-up'd her. I can't wait to wear it to work and dance around in front of her. :D The necklace is make of the body of an old watch that I completely gutted. The necklace is one of those memory wire chokers you can get really cheap at craft stores. I cut the picture out of the paper case that came with the special edition of Ghost Rider. I'm pretty excited. I wanted to post it, but I didn't know that it would qualify as a slideshow. What do you think? I'll probably just leave it in the forums. :P

Jewelry Design App Ideas?

Our group at Autodesk is thinking about making an app to help people design custom jewelry, since the current options are slow, expensive, and hard to use.  If you've made your own jewelry or worked with a pro to have a custom piece made, our summer intern Kristen would love to pick your brain for 15-30 minutes to learn what features would be most useful to you in a jewelry app. If that sounds like fun, just reply here and Kristen will contact you to set up a phone or Skype chat.  Thanks!

Jewelry - Salvaged Barbie Doll Parts

This is one of the more unique re-purposed jewelry ideas that I have seen.  At first I thought the faces and body parts were photos or maybe paintings.   However, the interesting and comical compositions are created using Barbie parts! The Plastic Body Series designed by Margaux Lange is a jewelry line that combines salvaged Barbie doll parts with sterling silver and pigmented resins. You actually HAVE to check out this link; I am so amused by this!

Wire bending machine or jig for small scale / jewelry findings

So the DIwire looks exciting, but the more I examples I see, I notice it's a bit "low res". I'm wondering if there's a smaller scale solution either electronic or mechanical for jewellery production purposes. I would like to find a way to produce non-standard, custom jewelry findings. Is there a high quality, customisable jig on the market? I want to avoid the inaccuracy of hand bending findings... Also, has anyone come across a concise book on the topic of well designed, innovative or commercial jewelry findings? All I can seem to find is a bunch of ugly "craft" or DIY style books. I'm more interested in having a large collection of finding examples at hand than a book of just 12 DIY walkthroughs. Thanks!

Gilding a ...Wasp?

I have a  vision for a project but am unsure what would be the best means of achieving it.  When I was a kid, I had a bug collection. My grandfather found a perfectly preserved wasp in his garage and saved it for me in a plastic syrup bottle lid. Over the decades all my other insect specimens crumbled (I was a kid, so I just had them loose in a school box without proper mounts) but this wasp is STILL intact and perfect inside the syrup cap more than 20 years later! My grandfather was very special to me, and I was toying with the idea of somehow metal plating this wasp to turn it into a pendant. I have no experience with metal working and don't own the stuff to do it, but i'm open to purchasing materials if my goal even seems realistic.  It is a fragile exoskeleton, which probably limits what I can do in terms of casting  I have wondered about brush coating it with fiberglass resin (to strengthen it) and then painting it with gold leaf, but many of the faux gold leaf paints out there are pretty crappy looking.   Fearing I might just end up destroying the wasp, I've also thought maybe I should just get a Ryker mount and hang him with the rest of my legit insect collection, though it is not posed properly and is likely waaaaaay too old to be re-relaxed for posing. If any experienced jewelry makers, gold leaders, or entomologists have thoughts on how to successfully gild this wasp (or why not to), I welcome your ideas! Thanks in advance.

Where do I find a base to make my own stud earrings?

I want to glue (or whatever you recommend) buttons and other small knick-knacks onto some type of stud earring base.I'm not sure if this is it (the 2nd from the left): http://www.silverenchantments.com/bezel-cups-sterling-silver.htmlbecause it's a "cup", possibly designed for a gemstone or something? I was looking for a sort of flat surface w/ a post coming out (and a backing of course) to glue vintage buttons on. Seems pretty easy to me, any precaution? I don't have a glue gun... will superglue work, or is there some sticky crafty substance I don't know about that would stand the test of time?

Sanding/polishing porcelain beads in a tumbler

I'm looking to tumble porcelain bisque (not the final firing, still soft enough to sand off impefections), and polish the final fired porcelain beads in a tumbler. See attached photos of a final fired porcelain bead for the scale. I'm wondering if you know what media, burnishing compound etc I should be using, and for how long.. I already have a 3lb capacity Lortone Tumbler with stainless steel shot currently for polishing metal. But I believe this tumbler also does rocks.

Hilox silver and gold oxidizer.

I am looking for a silver and gold oxidizer called Hilox. I am all out of it and it's no longer on the market. The new oxidizers on the market do not work well. Do you have an old bottle laying around that you don't need?

Jewelry Box Kits

I'm looking for feedback from the DIY crafting/woodworking community. I'd like to know what you all think of our artisan designed jewelry box kits. I've looked around and what I've seen in this market is pretty slim pickin's. Our kits don't require a shop full of tools, just what the average homeowner might have in his/her tool chest. There is also a short list of supplies. The kits require no cutting or power tools at all. The things that are required are self confidence, a sense of excellence and attention to detail. Our company is called Ready To Build. I have designed every box and we make absolutely everything in-house. It would be great if you would check out the website and give us any feedback or ask questions. Thanks!

jewelry box fittings

I am making my daughter a wooden jewelry box and want to spiff it up with brass fittings - corners, edges, etc. I can't find a supplier. All local stores have cabinet fittings ( drawer pulls, hinges, etc.). Any suggestions? If I bought thin brass sheets would I need special tools to make my own fittings? i want nice sharp 90 degree angles and curved edges.

Wire Wrapping Kits

I can make you a kit for any of my wire jewelry projects. I have the nest and the basic cab kits already, since I teach those, but I can assemble what you need for any of my wire jewelry instructables. Gemstones will be whatever is in my studio at the time, though you can tell me what kinds of things you like. This will hopefully take the anxiety out of not knowing how to get started. Kits usually cost about $3o - $40 plus shipping. Just contact me through instructables if you want one.

Act Of Kindness

I am having a difficult time here in the Kottage. This is the most extreme and difficult thing to ever ask of my community, but here I am. Our family is, and has been, facing the worst devistation, alot like most people here in the U.S. (and I'm sure everywhere else in the world). I have been disabled and running my shop to help with financial obstacles for me and my family. My husband was laid off, and during his time of becoming unemployed, he has become very ill and unable to work any longer. His disability has been exhausted, and he is now awaiting S.S. benifits. He has been denied twice, and now the Sr. Attorneys have taken on his case. It will be a few more months until his decision comes in. I would like to ask anyone who can help, to please hear my plea. If you, or anyone you can refer, to please help by way of shopping for gifts, Christmas, or any other occassion you may have in the near future, to please think of me and my family. If you can, please post my shop links to your facebook, twitter, blogs, or any other social network you can post on. Any donations can be sent to paypal via kottage_kreations@yahoo.com My website is http://kottagekreations.etsy.com  I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you in advance for your prayers, support, and most of all your friendship. I have seen many tweets from my community in the past. Keep them comming! We really need your well wishes during this difficult and stressful time in our lives.

LED lighting help?!

I am in the process of building a jewelry armoire / box / chest (whatever you wish to call it) and I am wanting to add just two LED's that will come on when the door is opened on the jewelry box and they will go off when the door is closed. Having novice skills in electronics and handyman skills in woodworking I was wondering what I would need to accomplish this and if it could be battery powered...
