This is my first try at real jewelry.  For my first attempts, I really like how they turned out, and even my husband really likes them, which is saying something!  Anyway, on to the pictures...









As you can tell, I added a charm to the bracelet.  It's a spool of thread that I painted with glittery clear nail polish so it would sparkle.  I thought that was my favorite part, but the earrings are actually my favorite...I took apart a pair of old ones that I hated, so it was great to reuse some findings I already had and make them into something I really like!

And here's one more shot of me actually wearing the stuff...I hadn't added the charm yet but everything else is there!

Aw, thank you V!  That makes me blush, I am so glad someone likes my stuff!

The thread is so adorable...I got from another Craftster...it's adorable!  I also got an amazing sewing machine, some keys and other totally adorable stuff that I am trying to make into jewelery as soon as I get time.  SO great!  Cheesy

I realized today, when I make jewelery I feel so calm and happy. Same can be said for everyone's crafts that are from the heart. You can really tell when love is put into your craft. Wink
