Make It Metallic

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Metallic is defined as anything made of or looks like its made of metal. Different metals tend to be popular at different times. At this time silver seems to be the hot metallic. I know some who follow the trends, but truthfully its personal preference.

We want to see all your metallics. Tell us all about your metallic item. What is it? What does it do? And so on….

Pam from PearlsVintagebyPam says metallic means tin! I collect unique tins and I found this fantastic guitar tin. It’s clean, it shines and vibrates as it prepares to play for you! Rock and Roll!

Gillian from Gillisflowers said I like playing with different papers and often combine them in different ways. For this metallic looking hair comb I layered a VERY fine and delicate tissue paper in shades of blue on to a piece of silver foil paper. I love the finished effect and this hair comb really looks more like metal than paper.

Linda from LazyYVintage states these lovely green metal angel candle holders are a favorite of mine. They have brass candle holder cups and are painted to look like tarnished copper.

Dawn from DeeDeeSupplies says being a supplies shop I have lots of metal in my shop!! These swirly beads are my favourite at the moment … I love the way they capture and reflect light due to their flowing shape.

Because of this swirly reflective quality they are not only great for statement jewellery but would also be great for home decor design such as wind chimes!

Diana from joliefemmebydiana said a lightweight little bag to use for evening is great with a metallic touch! One of these has gold metallic accents with green and the other has silvery metallic with teal. Both make a great gift!

Dawn from DeeDeeDeesigns says this necklace is made from upcycled metal guitar strings wound with a thin metal jewellery wire. The memory wire necklace is also metal, and while the feature bead is plastic it has a statement metal presence.

This is a great gift for the music lover!

Sandy from TesoroDelSol says:

Most of my designs are inspired by ethnic styles derived by my travels to exotic places. I created a simple bangle from rose gold filled metal and gave it a subtle Moroccan look by forging this scroll pattern into it.

Annie from DesignedbyAnneliese says:

I have taken a slightly different twist to Rose Gold and have these rose punches that are gold in colour! I imagined these to be used as confetti at a wedding, wedding anniversary or engagement party!

Ina from InaSudjana says:

Oh I LOVE rose gold. It is the sweet and soft reddish tinge that makes it stand out as oppose to stark gold.

I use it in almost all of my items that have ‘gold’ in it… including this headband.

Sweater Parties

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:

What is so special about this ornament is that a piece of a vintage sweater was given to me to use in a creation from a 92-year-old neighbor of mine. She was a seamstress for many years and is trying to find places for her items to go and be used instead of just being thrown away. She came from an era where you did not just throw away items… once an item was done being used in its original state you would reuse it in something else. She only had a small piece of the sweater left so this ornament is very limited. I am making one for her family and one for our family the rest will be for sale. Her piece of sweater will go on to bring many joy as they hang these unique and special snowmen on their trees.

Barbara from MermaidsHatbox says:

In the 90’s, when my husband and I went out for Christmas shopping in the city we traditional went also to the Christmas market, to a special restaurant and to the Laura Ashley store to look for winter warm sweaters.

The fashion of Laura Ashley was not really my style, but the sweaters are special. This was the only Ugly Christmas sweater in my collection.

Now I have only two of this collection. Those that I found the most beautiful and the ‘Ugly’ which I bought 1993. It was long, long ago that I wear this sweater, but I’m fascinated by the variety of knitting and embroidery every time I saw it.
