Jewelry Projects

Okay – now that I’m catching up on my posts, I realize that there have been lots of words but very few pictures (and a picture is worth a thousand words, right?). So here are some photos of some jewelry projects I’ve been working on recently…

One great thing about working is that I have more opportunities to wear fun jewelry pieces. Not that I get dressed up every day – this week, I wore jeans twice because it was just too cold!

I made another bracelet from the French General kit included with Paula’s Kit Club’s February Easter-themed kit:


I just love this! The little white pieces are shaped like eggs. I wore this the other day with a green sweater – it’s so cute!

Speaking of green, I made several other green pieces lately:


These pieces have some pretty green freshwater pearls.


This bracelet was from a kit as was this necklace:


I also made this necklace with a vintage opal stone:


And here are two pairs of earrings:


The pair on the right are made with a vintage topaz glass stone wrapped with filigree. The earring on the left shows the back and the one on the right shows the front.

Ooh – I also found this kit on clearance at TJ Maxx of all places:


I was from K & Company and I added the photos of my family to make a pretty charm bracelet.

Speaking of charm bracelets, I made this one to wear with red for Valentine’s Day:


It has several vintage red stones as well as some new stones, charms and crystals.

I also made this simple piece with a matching pair of earrings:


And this necklace and earrings with wire-wrapped pink glass drop beads:


I am really having fun making pieces that I can wear the very next day – it’s instant gratification, and you get to wear your ‘art’ on your sleeve, so to speak! :)

Next I want to make a series of button bracelets with a bunch of vintage buttons that I found in my stash…
