this is my first attempt at jewelry making. I wanted to do it as Christmas presents and since I'm a newbie i thought i should start extra early (like mid-october lol) but as everything was coming together wonderfully i just kept going and now Ive got several pairs of earrings and a couple of bracelets and some pendants.
red and black earrings i made these for myself just to start off and i really like them although they are a bit heavy so i don't wear them dancing or anything.
blue star earrings for my BFF Leslie. she likes stars and the color blue.
the bracelet goes with her earrings. its a recon i guess. i took apart something my grandmother had. i like reusing items. needs a bit of cleaner and is good to go.
light blue cuff this one is for my other BFF Alicia. she has a thicker wrist and is always looking for some cute bracelets that fit so i made her a simple but shiny cuff.
large hoop earrings these earrings are also for Alicia. she likes simple but bold.
small hoops i might give these to my mom, I'm not sure yet they are bigger than she usually wears. or i might try to sell them.
brown neutral earrings these are also something that Ive reused and the only post earrings Ive done so far. i might give them to my boyfriends mom although shes not flashy in anyway. she usually wears just some studs.
pink and blue earrings i think these are the ones i like the least. the darker beads are blue with very fine sparkles in them. its very hard to tell.
dragonfly sculpey pendant Ive also been working with scupey and Ive also fallen in love with that as well. Ive got some ornaments baking now. here is my first pendant. my boyfriend is convinced "no one wears clay" whatever. its a flat sided glass marble you would put in the bottom of a vase with a dragonfly from a scrap piece of paper mod podged on and then covered with clay and baked.
last one i swear.
vintage initial cuff this was an old skool Avon bracelet my mom had. its actually a locket. the front was boring so i made it pretty with some clay and put L on it for my first name and baked. it still opens just not as wide.
please let me know what you think. my friends and family always tell me everything is great so id like some real feed back.
