Anyway, I was excited about the jewelry thing because I will have a chance to show you some stuff I have been working on. I am loving making jewelry, it is so much fun and cheaper, and you feel so accomplished when you are finished. So here are some things I have been working on.
|This tutorial will be featured on Eisy Morgan soon.|
The necklace above I just made and absolutely adore. The little charm at the clasp says 'fait main' which means 'hand made' in French.
|Bracelet made with the left over chain from the necklace above, leftover pearls from a borken necklace, beads, and a charm I bought|
I made this one from some left over beads I had and pearls from my necklace that broke. You will probably notice that all the jewelry I have been making has those pearls. I just thought I might as well get some use out of them!
|Once again, left over pearls, beads, and a few other charms I had bought.|
Now these earrings above were my first attempt at jewelry making. So now I am aware that you use head pins to attach the charms. I didn't have any and I was being resourceful, so I used what was left over from the old necklace!
Now I couldn't do a post on jewelry without mentioning two of my favorites. Here is my Tiffany's bracelet Lavar bought me I think 6 years ago now. Probably the only piece of jewelry I got from him I haven't lost yet. Except my wedding ring. You just don't loose Tiffany's, now do you ladies??
|Probably the last thing I will be seeing from Tiffany's!|
And, of course, my favorite piece of jewelry, my wedding ring.
This picture does not do it justice. It is really dirty and needs to be cleaned. Although it is not huge (and I will take an upgrade aaaanytime, babe!) it is what we chose together. I like it!
I have more, I just thought I would showcase a few. Go check out Little Miss Momma for some more jewelry link ups!
Oh and today is my little man's first birthday!! I can't believe he is one. We are headed to the zoo today, yay! Happy Birthday, E-man, mommy and daddy loooooove you!
