Wow, I love the necklace made by Kmac, so pretty. Also the earrings are wonderful.
Carnabystreet, is the first bracelet and it's awesome, great selection of gumball charms.

Chelseaxbaby doesn't have his camera right now so I'm going to post some pics of the necklace I made for her. I only know some few things about her, one of them is that she loves the movie Moulin Rouge . I have not seen that movie yet but I know the main story so I made a necklace inspired on Satine's jewelry.

I also made a bow for her hair.

As you now I'm Mexican and my English is quite basic. I only write the story behind the pieces of the necklace in the letter that I sent to Chelseaxbaby so I'm going to post it this later when I get a proper translation  Smiley

Oh man, that's GORGEOUS. There have been plenty of cool necklaces so far in this gallery, but that's the first one I've seen that I'd actually love to wear. It's fabulous :-)

Oh man, prettyinkpink - I'm totally jealous of Chelseax.  That's just stunning.  On a side note, what are gumball charms?  You all keep mentioning them, but I'd never heard that phrase before.

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

WOW, that's a fabulous piece -I can't wait to hear about all the pieces!!

nikimac- "gumball charms" are tiny little plastic toys and objects meant for kids that are dispensed in coin-operated machines -the same kind of machines that dispense gum and small candies. They're often found at the entrances of super markets here in the US.

Here is the explanation of the necklace I sent Calliel

My mother died last november and much of the necklace is made from bits of her jewelry.
The base is a piece of gourd
The chain and "pearls" were from my mother
The bird sitting on top I have had for awhile (don't know where I got it)
The frame piece under the bird is also something I picked up somewhere.
The humming bird in the frame and all the gold stuff on top of the lace comes from
  a pair of my mother's earrings.  She loves humming birds.
The center piece is an old earring I have had kicking around for years.
The wing hanging from the bottom was also part of a pair of my mother's earrings.  She wore the
  wing on her left ear and a peace sign on her right - it described her politics (left wing peace nik)
The black lace was in a bag of lace someone gave me.

I really enjoyed using some of my mother's jewelry.  She loved my crafting and was always interested
in what I was making for swaps. 
I miss her but I have so many wonderful memories.
