This was my first jewelry project! I got Lynna as my secret santa and her wishlist said she wanted a bracelet. After some fruitless shopping adventures for a bracelet that was suitable, I decided to just make one (I'm really particular about presents--I always feel compelled to get them something perfect thus embarking on super long journeys in search of something significant).

I made some calls and found out she liked vintage themed jewelry so I headed off to Michaels in search of the pieces to make her a bracelet. Boy, was it harder than I thought! It was four hours of dragging my friend around the bead section to help me find the appropriate chains, beads, charms, lobster claps, and wires haha. (Who knew it required so many components??) I went home and tried putting everything together.

I looked at some of my jewelry to figure out how some of the parts were put together so after much finger prying at the wires and stuff, I finally had a piece of work I was proud of! (I'm kind of a perfectionist when it comes to crafty stuff ahh!) I made some matching earrings too! I didn't have the pre-made earring wires so I just handmade one--sorry if the ends were prickly! I know it doesn't look that complicated but it really is! (at least to a noob like me haha) The theme of the bracelet was "Hope & Faith" (I forgot to take a picture of the earrings boo )

You did a really good job on that bracelet. You should be proud of yourself. That's quite a bit to bite off for a first time project. I think your friend will love it too.. Smiley
