ive recently discovered jewelry making and all the wonderful things at ac moore and michaels and sometimes joann fabrics. and im truely additced to it now. heres what ive been doing the last few days.
this first bracelet took me 4 hours to complete and i was inspired by some of the things ive seen around here and i just new i had to make one. my boyfriend thinks its ugly but what does he know. its made of over 200 beads and 95 head pins i call it OOOOH Shiny
the next three are close ups of some of the beads used.
a bit blurry
the next piece is a recon, it was my grandmothers and she liked butterflies. heres the before
and the after i LOVE anything strawberry. and since my boyfriend insists that no one wears clay i made little strawberries from polyclay. i love it.
my mom liked something similar to this in a catalog and since im unemployed clay is better than silver.
and since that one turned out so well i made one for my boy friends sister. she has threr kids so she gets three stones (my om also three kids but oh well) i think im gonna wrap it all pretty and sneak it under their tree from santa. hee hee
this one is also for my mom i think itll go well with her ren faire costume
and because she likes longer chains and they usually dont have a clasp i made her one with a magnetic clasp so she can do it her self.
i was so excited when i found that in the store i squealed.
and another bracelet for my ren faire costume. im a pirate. i think i might wear it all the time though. i wish i had a before picture. it was just wooden beads with angels and i painted them black and covered them with pirate-y things. and added red beads between.
its kinda small but let me know what you think!
