the ReFab Diaries: make jewelry with negatives
Showing posts with label make jewelry with negatives

Whew. Ok. "Negative" week has literally tuckered me out. But I did it. Actually stuck to the theme ... launched my first giveaway (go enter!) and published two tutorials. Unlike the earrings (for which I was able to draw inspiration) this necklace came about through trial and error. I'm not saying there's nothing else out there like it. But if there is, I haven't seen it.  So without further ado, here's how to make one:

Hi nice doodlers... want some free stuff? I posted a tutorial for the negative earrings and another for the necklace. Now I'm ready to wrap them and ship them off to a happy home somewhere!  

Since I am a little sentimental (!), I've kept things like old (love) letters and negatives. There's some rationalizing I could do about the former. But negatives? Am I really going to print those pics again?  While I do like that I'm old enough to actually have negatives lying around, I'm definitely very much in love with my digital camera! Perhaps I appreciate it more because I do remember the way things used to be? Because I once spent time/energy/money developing pictures in a darkroom so I have some perspective on that artistic process and appreciate it. But I also know what it's like to waste a lot of money getting film developed, only to be very disappointed with the pictures. Soooo, I was staring at a pile of negatives last week, wondering what I could do with them.  Did a little searching around the intergoogle... and here's the result!  (tutorial after the jump).
