Baubles, bangles and beads...




Last night was spent making jewellery. I've tried one or two pieces in the past and haven't been too impressed with the outcome but I do like my latest attempts. My oldest daughter 'snaffled' the yellow/gold one and is wearing it today.(I'll never see that again!!!lol)
The blue and silver combination--- I am wearing tonight as we are visiting a friend for dinner, and it will match my navy and white skirt and top beautifully. I must admit there was not a lot of skill needed ---
the bracelets were made by threading different coloured beads on jewellery wire and the securing the ends to a clasp. The necklace took even less time as the shop bought pendant was threaded onto a silver chain I already owned, definitely no skill there!!!
I think I could get hooked on this, so quick and yet so effective. What do you think?

Definitely can get hooked on it! I tried & tried to do this, but I cannot get the Clasps to get hooked on right. Just looks stupid.

so I made about 25 "memory wire" bracelets, where it just requires the ends to be folded over. But after 25 of those it got a bit old.

I am jealous of your ability! Have fun with it.

Hi Mog! The jewelry looks gorgeous. Once upon a time I used to buy all of my jewelry from the store. Although they were indeed beautiful (and expensive), I have to admit that those pieces had very little character. One of the best things about making your own is that they have a style that is all you! And you end up saving money when all is said and done. A win/win in my opinion!
