1  Butterfly Jewelry in CHALLENGE 42 ENTRIES by Amaya_Fey on: September 04, 2009 09:47:40 PM
Hi all, this is my first challenge ever and I had a lot of fun doing it. I have been on a jewelry making kick lately so when I walked into Dollar Tree I knew I had to make some jewelry, so I ended up making a necklace, a bracelet, and earrings. I bought everything from Dollar Tree except for the mono filament string, and the fishhook earrings. I bought a package of silver crimp beads, two packages of blue drop beads but I only used one package, a package of silver butterfly charms, a package of silver toggles, a package of blue seed beads, two packages of clear-ish glass beads, and two packages of metal spacers. I think the set looks pretty good for coming from supplies from the dollar store. So here are the pictures:

The stuff I bought

The earrings are actually flat but I couldn't get them to sit straight.
Thanks for looking, and I hoped you liked my $10 $9 butterfly jewelry!   Cheesy

2  Cut up credit card earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Amaya_Fey on: June 23, 2009 08:29:38 PM
Hi all, this is my second posted project on craftster.

I got a new credit card in the mail because my previous one expires this month, so my mom was like make sure you cut it up, so I did. Then I was looking at all the pieces and I figured there was something crafty I could do with it. My credit card has a picture of puppies on it and where I had cut it, it separated the picture into two rectangular shapes. I decided that I could make earrings out of it, so I went through my stash of jewelry stuff that I had accumulated while working at AC Moore, and I came up with this:

This was one of the first times that I was happy that my dad has a lot of tools because I used a small drill bit to make the hole for the jump ring.

Thanks for looking!

It is my first attempt at jewelry that doesn't use pony beads  Cheesy  It is a present for my mom's birthday, which is today (Valentine's Day).  Hope you like it, because I do!  Grin

This picture doesn't really do it justice.

This picture shows the colors better.

Thanks for looking! Tell me what you think!  Cheesy
