I've been pretty busy recently making jewellery, so I thought it was about time to post a few photos. I really love making the pieces, especially the decision-making, but the idea is that maybe I'll be able to sell a few of the items I've made, make them as gifts or make to order.
Above is the necklace and earrings I made my friend Robyn for her to wear at her daughter's wedding in London next month.
My sister celebrated her 50th birthday last October ( she's too busy to read my blog, so she won't know I've told you that!) and at last I had the confidence to make her the jewellery I've been thinking about for ages and ages. That's the necklace and earrings above.
Here's a copper charm bracelet and some earrings made to match.
These two bracelets were made with glass seed beads.
My niece Lis asked me to make her a charm bracelet, in green. I incorporated 2 little silver charms with the initials of her two children, and also used a small piece of beautiful green beach glass I'd collected who-knows-when.
In yesterday's class, it was a new technique for me. I made one necklace using small freshwater pearls, in orangey-gold colours, and the other using glass beads in black and deep blue.
