These are some photos of some of the stuff I made yesterday. My photos aren't the best but you get the idea... If only I could take decent photos *sigh*. everything looks much better in real life, I promise Wink.

This is my sisters favourite necklace I made yesterday, it's really nice on but these roses never photograph well for me:



The next one is a locket I made using vintage components (same photo problem). I'm thinking of making these for a couple of my friends who have their birthdays coming up in August:





As I'm onto lockets now I may as well put the rest of the lockets next. The first one is made using a vintage locket & rose cab, actually, most of the lockets are made using vintage parts... I like the way the bottom two are very simple.







Next are examples of me going crazy with flowers, I can never seem to make something in one colour, so I made these in four. The first one is a bit zoomed out so you can see the whole area, the others have the dangly bits too but I the pictures are close ups. The white and gold one looks so pretty in real life, I think it's very pure.









This is a similar necklace but with a swooping swallow this time:



And finally the simplist one of them all, I call this the ocean necklace. It's like the teal one I made the other day, the beads are an amazing colour, especially when the light hits them.

Thanks everyone Smiley, I'm not usually a big fan of gold jewellery but the white and gold did work really well together, it looks very pure. That said I think the rose locket is probably my favourite, I wish I could photograph them better Sad.
