I've been experimenting with making my own jewelry for about a year now, and I finally decided to upload a few of my favorites.
My 'Dreaming of Spring' necklace: last winter I got to longing for the colors of spring, and made this with a wire crochet technique that I saw in a magazine. It looks a little jumbled in the picture, but I love the way it looks on, and it's probably my favorite piece that I've made.
Macrame Spirals: One of my favorite chokers broke and I salvaged the focal bead to use as a pendant. Combined two of my favorite hobbies, macrame and beading.
Simple and elegant, a glass foil pendant on black leather. I'll have to get Crystal or Evie to model this one for me so I can show you how I wear it.
This is the very first set that I made, and I wear it all the time. I've learned quite a few techniques since I made this, and the workmanship is shoddy compared to some of my newer pieces, but I still love it. Adam helped me with the wire work on the earrings, because I hadn't figured out how to work with wire yet.
If you're interested in making jewelry let me know! I have tons of helpful sites that I can send you with tips, techniques and tons of free tutorials. (Wow, listen to that alliteration!) There's also a great website called beads and pieces where you can buy some super cheap stuff, and pay zero shipping. How great is that?
Edited to add:
Oh yeah. All of you who wanted to help out with those art journals, I'll be starting them next week. As soon as I finish a couple pages I'll send it off to the next person. I'm pretty excited.
