SOOO...I've been really busy making birthday presents lately.  This weekend, I made my mom's, aunt's, great grandmother's, and my bff's birthday presents.  October is a BUSY month for birthdays!

Please let me know what you think!



My mom loves the Green Bay Packers even though they moved from Wisconsin 11 years ago - I wanted a classier look for her to Back the Pack!



For my Great Grandma who is 95 this year  Smiley



For my Aunt Rhonda - I hope she likes it  Huh





The last two are for my BFF Serena (we've known one another for 31 years).  The first is a bracelet and earrings.  She saw another bracelet that I did that was similar and wanted one badly, but she's not into bright colors at all.  The second is another piece that I had done previously that she fell in love with.  I changed it up a bit and made the earrings to go with the necklace for her.  The earwires don't really match either set very well because she is very allergic to metals and I had to use niobium to be safe.  She currently owns NO earrings because of it.  I'm hoping to get her started off right  Grin

these are all so pretty Smiley i am especially fond of your mum's set. Also, i'm allergic to nickle as well, so I can feel your friend's pain! don't worry though, i'd rather the ear wires not match (although you can't really tell beyond maybe ...2 feet?) than have itchy swollen ears D:

Oh WOW!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pieces you made for your mom, especially the necklace! It's so simplistic yet classy. =) I wish I could make my own jewelry. =P I think you did a great job. Such lucky family and friends you have. I think it's cool your GG is turning 95! =)
