On a Roll!

Thought I'd blog a few more items I've made, seem to be on a roll at the moment, really enjoying making jewellery, definatly think I've found my passion - although I really should scrap some more pages, got the perfect excuse after the Metallica gig on Saturday as hopefully I'll get some awesome pictures!

The first piece is a necklace and earring set my mum asked me to make for a Birthday pressie, just need to make a box for them to go in now.

Got some lovely new chain recently, didn't want to overload this one with beads as it's got a nice pattern on it and as you can see it's quite chunky ... have had the square bead for ages, got it in a mix bag and didn't know what to do with it as it was the only one like it!

Got some new keyrings recently too so thought I'd make another one, I'm loving foiled beads at the moment and thought this purple one was gorge so had to buy it.

Thanks for looking! xx

Weekend Makes

Well here are today's makes, saw a gorgeous bracelet design in a magazine I got yesterday so I decided to adapt it and make my own version, got a little frustrated threading the elastic through the chain as I dont have a proper needle but Matt and I came up with a plan and made our own!

Made earrings to go with the turquoise bracelet too! Hope you like!

(Yeah, I aint cut the elastic off yet but I couldn't wait to show you all my makes so took a photo while the glue was drying!!)

Thought I'd blog this awesome picture of the view out of our kitchen window last night, I'm no photographer but still think it looks kinda cool!

and finally I'm well excited about next weekend, cos I'm off to see METALLICAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! Seen them at festivals before but never at their own gig, it's gonna be immense! I can't fucking wait!! For now, I'll just have to drool over pictures of Mr Hetfield! Yum!

New makes!

Here are a few more makes I've done over the past few days, used some of the beads I got with this months Lets Get Crafting mag!

This is a new design of bracelet that I've tried, really enjoyed doing something different, was abit fiddly at times and got my wire caught up a few times but got the rhythm in the end!!

Matching Bracelet and Earrings, same tech as above bracelet, I'm really loving green at the moment!
These were just abit of a play really, abit of fun with some beads making them into a leaf shape, i'm sure they could be perfected but I enjoy just playing around with ideas sometimes!

Challenge #3

I thought i'd have a go at a jewellery challenge, this time I'm using a piece I've recently done, hopefully I'll continue entering these challenges to help with my jewellery making and to keep me going! One pic can be seen in post below, but I thought i'd put it here too with another showing it been wore - I know it clashes with my hair but I didnt think my boyfriend would let me take a picture of him wearing a tiara! lol This is my first attempt at a tiara, hope you like!
