HtCC: Jointed Jewels

I’m a bit of nerd. I would have said secret nerd, but lets face it, you know already. One of the things that really fascinates me is 3D printing. I could watch for hours (via YouTube) how an item can be built up over time in a printer. Most of the things I’ve seen be built have been practical items, but this collection of jewellery by Alissia Melka-Teichroew is a nice change.

The pieces are made by selective laser sintering, which allows a ball within a ball to be created. Watching this video shows how the items are built up.

The website allows you to click the design and then choose the colour (as above) – below are a few of my favourites

I think the pink chevron necklace is my favourite, then the yellow jeweled piece (although probably in a different colour!) Which do you prefer?

Buttons – Help!

We’ve had a bit of a re-arrange in the house (the boy did this while I went home, but I’ve only just finished sorting out everything in all rooms except his office. Its too scary.) and its meant that I looked in my crafting drawers for the first time in a long time

One thing that struck me – I have a lot of buttons and I need to find something to do with them.

This is my main button stash – I have those wooden Fira drawers (Not sure on the name, but so annoyed Ikea have stopped selling them – they’re brilliant and I quite like putting them together.) and this takes up a whole drawer.

I’ve also got these plastic buttons that are all different shapes, like stars, bows, hats, etc.

I’ve not been very crafty at all lately, but with so much free time, I think I should try and use up some of my stash! Any ideas?
