Last night a made a ton of jewelry for my friends, and today my fingers were itching to make some more.  I've gotten into playing with wire lately, but since soldering is out of the question (I have no space in my apartment to do it safely), I can't do a whole lot except bend, twist, and hammer.

Here are a few of the things I made.  Updated with better pictures.

This pair of earrings is made from plain copper wire.  The bundles near the clip-on findings are just wires wrapped around.



This one is made with good ol' 20 gauge craft wire.  I have an obsession with leaves lately.



Some other stuff that came out matchy, though not intentionally





...and my last piece for the night....
 

The beads are actually not the same.  The one on the shorter ribbon is cherry quartz, but the one on the longer ribbon is an opaque red-orange bead.

Thanks guys!  Go ahead and make your own version (as long as you don't mass-produce and sell them =P), then show us what you came up with!

Haha, don't worry I'll put my own spin on the necklace. But I've got exams coming up so I promised myself I wouldn't make any jewlrey until I'm done studying. (I just couldn't resist paying a visit to crafster though  Smiley )

Hehe...well, you've got pretty good discipline.  I promised myself I wouldn't do any crafts during finals and I just had to make something (3 weeks were just too agonizingly long).  Good luck!  Can't wait to see your spin on things.

these are quite lovely!
i love the coloring of just about everyone of them.

what are the beads strung on in the bracelet.
is it wire? did you just twist the ends onto the closing clasps?

i haven't tried making bracelets yet, so i
am completely in the dark on those type of little details!
