I started getting into jewellery making 'properly' (ie not just strung acrylic beads) in November 2013 - and am really loving it - and still learning new techniques! This is a set of jewellery I made for my Cousins 30th Birthday present on Friday - purple is her favourite colour hence the amethyst - and Garnet is Januarys birthstone.
This is the whole set, consisting of cuff, necklace and earrings.
My partner in the recent bead soup swap sent me the amethysts - thank you
She also made me a similar cuff from lots of different purple beads - the cuff in that set was inspired by the one she sent me.
The necklace is the first time I have used memory wire - so not brilliant, but I am pleased with it regardless:
The heart is amethyst - and was rescued from a necklace I found in a charity shop - be proud of me P_E_S_T
the earrings are really really simple and tbh I wouldnt consider them a 'craft' but they are here for completions sake:
I always stress re: giving handmade things as presents - so I REALLY hope she likes them! I have made her another set which I will upload now
