Hi all, this is my first challenge ever and I had a lot of fun doing it. I have been on a jewelry making kick lately so when I walked into Dollar Tree I knew I had to make some jewelry, so I ended up making a necklace, a bracelet, and earrings. I bought everything from Dollar Tree except for the mono filament string, and the fishhook earrings. I bought a package of silver crimp beads, two packages of blue drop beads but I only used one package, a package of silver butterfly charms, a package of silver toggles, a package of blue seed beads, two packages of clear-ish glass beads, and two packages of metal spacers. I think the set looks pretty good for coming from supplies from the dollar store. So here are the pictures:

The stuff I bought

The earrings are actually flat but I couldn't get them to sit straight.
Thanks for looking, and I hoped you liked my $10 $9 butterfly jewelry!   Cheesy

You have a great dollar store. I wish ours carried jewelry supplies so I could make a lovely set like this one.

Great! I would not have thought that was from the dollar store. I like the colors you have chosen.

Those look great, and I agree - you never would have guessed it was from the dollar store!
