Jewelry Update

Enough of the dentist "stuff"! I thought while I am waiting for the bread to bake I should post pictures of some of the jewelry projects I've worked on during and after my trip to Seattle! Hope you like them. Click on the images to see the details!

1) Free formed ring and a hand-wrapped necklace to match the bracelet I made earlier. A few notes: the ring was an accident: it was too big, so I first wrapped a few pieces of wire around it, and then bent some of the original wire and wrapped it with thinner wire, which holds little purple stones. The big green stone actually twirls!

The necklace was the first time I used the wrapping technique, and I'm very pleased with how it turned out! I think it might have been actually harder to take pictures of it than making it :)

2) The earrings below are made from Japanese coins I bought in a little antique store during my vacation with my family. The owner of the store actually punched holes in the coins, and all I did was put a silver earring hook through them. I have an extra matching coin to make a bracelet (The reason I bought these coins because they have orchids on them, and I LOVE orchids!) and several other coins that I might make into pendants.

LOVE the earrings. So you! and I bet the best part is whenever someone compliments you you can always say "I made them!" :-D
