I have added a few new pieces to my ever growing collection.
I’m interested to hear your thoughts. Some of them are a little different.
Also, I’m teaching myself to wire wrap. The cameo is my first attempt! I think it turned out pretty well, considering.
This necklace is a pretty typical piece for me, but I do love this style.
My first attempt at wire wrapping! Other than the few plier nicks, it turned out pretty well.
This is a stretchy wrist band. I wired a couple of findings together, and attached it to this stretchy band I threw together.
These earrings have fresh water pearls, and adorable little washers that I thought look a lot like gears. I like the stainless steel with the mix of the brass.
I found these bobbins on clearance, and since they didn’t fit my sewing machine, I thought they would make adorable wire reels!
I saw something similar to this at Hobby Lobby, but it was a little more modenr, and the watch hands were fixed. These hands are free turning.
I’d love to hear your thoughts! Please feel free to comment!
I made this necklace a while ago to go with the earrings and bracelet, but I just forgot to show you! Sorry about the photo quality, I keep forgetting to take photos during daylight. Anyway, it’s one of those awesome antique keys, along with a fun hobby lobby clearance finding. And, like the others, I did make the chain and clasp.
As promised, I’m finally updating with something real! I threw these together last night. I couldn’t find all of my jewelry supplies, so the bracelet isn’t quite finished, but I made a clasp for the necklace (which I just realized I didn’t get a photo of, but it’s just like the clasp on my last necklace). The necklace is a locket, a small cone jewelry finding, and a little vile filled with miniature pearls, on a leather strap (which I got in a bag full of leather scraps from Hobby Lobby for $2.99). The bracelet is orange pearls threaded onto a leather piece, with brown ribbon wrapped around each one. I will add a clasp to it eventually, but even now you can tie it into a bow, and it still looks adorable. So here’s what they look like. Tell me what you think!
