My first "set" of jewelry/accessories that I've made and I'm pretty happy with how they came out.  I revamped a cufflet I had made already but wasn't too happy with, and made a matching necklace and earrings.  The other set is made of mauve glass beads with flat glass beads as focus, also with a necklace, cufflet and earrings. I made two mauve cufflets - the one has "dangles" on the center section that match the necklace, while the other one has grey sections and is wider that the first cufflet.

The earrings:      

The necklaces (chokers):

The cufflets:

I also made a turquoise and black cufflet after a friend was saying how she loves the colour-combination - she has yet to see it so we'll see if she likes it.

Then I made a red bracelet with 3 shades of red - this was my first try at just using eye-pins to make beads, and I quite like how it turned out.

Hope you like it!

I like the dangles at the ends of the necklaces - a nice extra touch!

I really like your designs and color choices.  You did a great job. Smiley

Those are really pretty.   I like the blue choker the best!

the turquoise and black cuflet is really cool, I think your firend will love it. Everything is very beautiful.

My alarm clock still holds a grudge from the time I threw it at the wall

The eyepins are not so bad - it actually goes very quickly.  I just want both ends to be exactly the same (which makes me a little obsessive...I know).  It was a nice change to the memory wiire!

Did the link in my previous post help with those of you who wanted some intstructions on how to make the cuffs or are there still some of you who want some help?

Thanks for the comments!

I like those brownish colored cufflets the color that I don't know the proper name for is weary pretty because there are different shades in it. You did a great job on all of your pieces.
