Every year the Spanish girls here put me to shame with their fancy fiesta jewellery. They always wear such beautiful, big bright things. This year I have made my own, and hopefully it'll go down well at the posh party I'm attending at the town hall this weekend! Smiley

Ignore the top, I have a fancy dress to wear this set with Smiley


Since I can only wear light earrings, I decided to use some small plastic cups for the base of my earrings.
But I don't think you can tell that's how they started out Cool


And this is the necklace! I'm so pleased with how it turned out because it's made from toilet rolls (for the chain) and lolly/popsicle sticks!
Again, I don't think people will notice, and hopefully it won't rain!


Thanks for looking! Comments and constructive criticism very welcome since I don't make jewellery very often! Smiley

Oh my goodness, those are so beautiful! I very rarely wear jewelry due to allergies but I would totally wear these, allergies be d***ed!  Would it be possible to get a tutorial for these? I have a big date coming up and I think these would rock!

I think that can only have been meant in a nice way. How can you not love this? It makes me so happy to wear it! I think I'll get lots of use even after my fancy party! Grin
