Ok so my family was raised on loving the university of iowa hawkeyes..i've been going to games since i was born lol. Anyways, so this christmas i thought i would make a set of jewelry for my stepmom with the hawkeye colors that she can wear any place any time. I wanted it to be festive enough to wear to the games yet not something that thats all she could wear it to.

Here's the necklace. Its just standard bead spacer bead strung on jewelry wire.

Here's the bracelet. She likes funky jewelry so i though using the bigger cube beads would give it more of a funky look.

Here is what im proud of most, the earrings. Ive never made this type of dangle earring but I'm pretty proud of how they turned out.

Here's a closer image of the beads

I did not intend to have a cube theme to this set but its just the way it worked out lol. I think she will like it and thats all that matters but C and C is always welcome!
It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

They all look great, but the dangle earrings are definitely my favorite!

My husband's family is from Iowa and they are all hardcore Hawkeye fans.  I like the idea of showing team spirit with something more sophisticated than a sweatshirt.  These are really nice.
