ive recently discovered jewelry making and all the wonderful things at ac moore and michaels and sometimes joann fabrics. and im truely additced to it now.  heres what ive been doing the last few days.

this first bracelet took me 4 hours to complete and i was inspired by some of the things ive seen around here and i just new i had to make one.  my boyfriend thinks its ugly but what does he know.  its made of over 200 beads and 95 head pins  i call it OOOOH Shiny

the next three are close ups of some of the beads used.
a bit blurry

the next piece is a recon, it was my grandmothers and she liked butterflies. heres the before

and the after i LOVE anything strawberry. and since my boyfriend insists that no one wears clay i made little strawberries from polyclay.  i love it.

my mom liked something similar to this in a catalog and since im unemployed clay is better than silver. 

and since that one turned out so well i made one for my boy friends sister.  she has threr kids so she gets three stones  (my om also three kids but oh well)  i think im gonna wrap it all pretty and sneak it under their tree from santa.    hee hee

this one is also for my mom  i think itll go well with her ren faire costume

and because she likes longer chains and they usually dont have a clasp i made her one with a magnetic clasp so she can do it her self.  Smiley  i was so excited when i found that in the store i squealed.

and another bracelet for my ren faire costume.  im a pirate. i think i might wear it all the time though.  i wish i had a before picture.  it was just wooden beads with angels and i painted them black and covered them with pirate-y things. and added red beads between.

its kinda small but let me know what you think!


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

i call it OOOOH Shiny

Lol, I'm well known amongst family and friends for referring to things as 'Oooh Shiny' so I'm glad I'm not the only one!!

Your Oooh Shiny bracelet is very cool, well worth its four hour creation time. Smiley

The tiny strawberries are very cute, off I go to buy some red and green polyclay to try making some!

The pirate bracelet is great too, love the images you used on the beads.  Cheesy

I was gonna take over the world but got distracted by something shiny

All of your jewelry is lovely, but that first bracelet is simply stunning! I love it!

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

That bracelet is so pretty. I'm just getting into jewelry making too and I love the look of those chunky looking charm bracelets. Good job!
