So this evening I have been working on some simple strung jewellery!  I made 6 pairs of earrings, 1 necklace and 1 bracelet in an hour and a half!  I will post some more complicated things soon. These are all going to be donated to the WI raffle tomorrow night. This is a big step for me.  A year ago I did not have the confidence to even join, tomorrow will be my first meeting and I am offering up jewellery for the raffle, which will be my first time ever of putting my jewellery in public!

Anyway sorry for the ramble here are the pics.

Super simple but effective earrings.  I love these beads but they shout 'earrings' at me and I can not think what else to do with them...any ideas?  I made 2 pairs of each.  One set for me and one for the raffle.


Daffodil inspired necklace. I love making these necklaces but this is the first time I have had a row of spikes ontop as well as the dagger beads. I love the effect!



Lastly a bracelet: I have real trouble with bracelets.  I either make simple strung ones which take 10 minutes or peyote ones which take days. I need to find inspiration to a middle ground.

Pretty, pretty, pretty! The earrings have gorgeous beads! Are they heavy or lightweight?

The necklace & bracelet are lovely as well! Gorgeous color combos!

Aww thanks for your lovely comments =) the earrings are fairly lightweight. I think they are ceramic.

The earrings at the back btw are emerald green colour not black like they look on the pic!

Very pretty!  The daffodil inspired necklace is beautiful, what lovely bead combinations.  How very generous to donate them too!
