Hey everyone.  Here are some pieces of jewelry that I made a few years ago but never got around to posting.  Talk about procrastinating! 

My daughter loves Tokidoki anything, so I made her this cute little bracelet using flat glass marbles and wire.  She loves it and its held up very well over the past few years. 

As for the earrings, these were made when the I <3 NY shirts were a total trend.  Everyone and their mama had one of those shirts, sooo... I decided to go against it and do the whole I <3 LA instead.  Tongue  I added the Lakers image to the other side of the tile as well.  Yes, I am a fan. 

Sorry for the blurry pics.  Again, these were taken years ago.  I promise, I have a better camera now!

Very cute bracelet.  What did you use to attach the marbles to the wire?

I dare to love forever

I need to destash a ton of yarn and fabric.  Send me a PM if you'd like to do a personal swap for some.

I really want the (empty) glass skull bottle that Crystal Head vodka comes in, so PM me if you're willing to swap me one!

Thanks everyone!  For the bracelet, I just used E6000 glue and fabric to attach the marbles.

The earrings are painted scrabble tiles that are mod podged with images that I printed out.  I used my handy Dremel to drill some holes, then added the hook earwires... and voila!  A brand new pair of earrings. I'm debating on whether I should add a coat of resin on them for sturdiness and to get the glassy look.  Eh, we'll see.
