Doing a Little Organizing!

So I haven’t made much lately, except for these (which didn’t turn out how I wanted, but they’re still pretty cute):

And a little crocheting and knitting (which I will show when I’m done… I’m knitting a scarf).
I have been organizing though!
I got a few cigar boxes and another really neat wooden box that I put to use!

Cameo Necklace

I found this cute cameo on sale! I happened to have this ribbon, and thought it was a pretty good match to the orangey/gold color of the jewels on the necklace. I just put the cameo on, sewed up the ends of the ribbon, fed jump rings through, and attached a clasp. It took maybe 5  minutes, and turned out pretty well.
Let me know what you think!

New things!

So the first new item is a necklace, as you can see. I got a bunch of quill pen tips on clearance, and thought they would look nice on jewelry, so this is my first attempt. First of all, I sanded off the tip, to make it a little less dangerous, then wrapped some wire around it, made a loop in the back, to put the cord through, put a couple of washers on, made a coils out of wire for decoration, made clasps, and voila! It was incredibly easy, and it’s a little different, which I like.

These are a couple of fingerless lace gloves. They came out  a little puffier than expected, but they’re cute. It is just an elastic, satin ribbon  and  lace trim. Each one took about 3 minutes to make. The camera made the lace and ribbon look like two different colors, where in person they’re the same color.

Thanks for stopping by! Please let me know what you think!

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!
