So I spent waay too much at our Gem & Mineral show this year. I needed to destash and make some gifts for family members birthdays. Not like I didn't have enough supplies, but I lacked some inspiration. Spring came and I found my muse! The desert is filled with blooming wild flowers and trees around this time and I took from nature and tried to transfer to my crafting jewelry.
Oh hey, PICTURES!
I made these around Easter, being a time of fertility.
I had several fresh water pearls that looked like eggs, and they went well with the mother of pearl birds.
I was given the Marque drops over a year ago
and had plenty of glass beads to match for these cute dangle earrings.
I made these for my self using sterling silver Sagittarius (him) & Libra (myself) charms, along with some agate, quartz, amethyst & swarovskis.
This set of berry colored fresh water pearls are for my aunt who just had a birthday. Hope she likes them.
I also worked on my own loaded charm bracelet. I call it my kitchy junky overloaded charm bracelet.
Its loaded with sterling silver doggies, representing my dogs. Geeky things even a tiny circuit board, World of warcraft references, natural minerals, glass beads and even polymer beads.
Please tell me what you think. I'm trying to hone my jewelry making skills. Thanks for looking!
