I'm just getting started making jewelry and I'm addicted! Here are some of my first pieces (and first attempts to photo graph jewelry--somehow I only got close-ups).

Earrings made with beads I repurposed from a necklace...

A new necklace out of the old beads...

I made two bracelets like this...one for me and one for my BFF  Cheesy

A pink jade bangle...

These are all so pretty!  I can't believe you are new to jewelrymaking Smiley  Did you wirewrap those beads yourself?  If so, was it hard?  I'm about to try that myself, I love the look.  Also need to get the courage up to post some of my pretties...

Thanks for sharing!

Wow! These are so beautiful! My fave is the pink bangle.... they look so professional. How long did you say you've been doing this?

I hope you keep sharing your work!

Those are all very pretty but I LOVE that necklace. Those beads are so pretty. You're quite good!

Thanks for the encouragement!

Unfortunately my pink jade bangel broke Sad I used sterling silver wire for the base and it was too soft. The wrapping was fun though latisslainte. I might redo it, but I'm working on a new one too.
