So, I've been doing my best lately to stay motivated when it comes to making things. It can be hard when you're doing school full time on top of a part time job. But here are some things I've made lately that I'm really happy with.

First is the bracelet. I love how delicate it looks on! (oh, and the leaf happened to be on there while I was using my photo wire to get pictures. I think it looks nice in the photo)



Next are the earrings. I used brass (gold tone), antique brass, and verdigris patina bird charms. I have some with a red patina, too, but I haven't used them yet.





I hope you all like them! I really enjoyed making them!

I got the charms from various Etsy suppliers. Just search around in the supplies section and you'll find tons of stuff. The leaf is one that I pressed after one of my plants died (i'm horrible with plants!) and then I used rubber stamps to write love on it.

I'm glad you like them!

It's not an ankle bracelet on me (maybe someone with smaller feet/ankles) but it could be made into one easily by switching the chain out to make it a little longer.
