I've been on a jewelry kick lately. Most of these are presents, and some are for me.

These are mine. I can only wear these metal hooks, so the charms are interchangable.


Guess who's back?

Awesome. Is that a bobby pin in the second picture? I've gotten into wearing my bangs pinned on the side lately and I only have one cute pin. So, how did you work that so it isn't uncomfortable to wear? All of your stuff is really pretty.

Fear not, for I am with you.

Wow Teapot,
These are great!
Are the leaves polymer clay?
The dragonfly is way cute!
I love your hematite beads, are they magnetic?
And my goodness, those pink and blue beads are dreamy!!  Where did ya find those at?  (if ya do not mind sharing?)
Sorry for all the questions!!  Smiley

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

I love, love the pair of earrings in the last picture (upper left hand corner) the most!   What kind of beads are those?  What did you use for the circles?  (if you don't mind me asking)  They are all super cute!  Smiley

I, too, love the first pair, and they look like polymer clay to me as well.  Did you use a mold??   Fantastic color and detail!  Love them.  I've tried making some with stamps, and am currently trying to perfect the method...  I would like to get them to look like the ones you've done.  Great job!

I just bought a new house... okay the house isn't new... it was actually born in the same month and year I was!!

Oh wow! Thanks everyone!

Nullgal, yes it is a bobby pin. It's actually a roller pin which is a lot bigger than a bobby pin. I like to put it in the top of my bun.

Thank you Kaleesi, jmi and Sevs!

Yes beadizzy, the first pair is clay. The hematite beads are magnetic, and all the beads were bought at Michaels.

CapturingLife, The beads are from Michaels. The circles are just some metal findings I got at Hobby Lobby. (I've been using them to make stitch markers)  Wink

Snootzie, I did use a mold for the leaves. (shhh don't tell) Try using pearlex powder on your stamp for added color, and so the clay won't stick to the stamp. Then, using a needle, trace around the leaf cutting it out of the rest of the clay. Then smooth the edges.
