Week 16 .......................... the fun part

Here are the fun things I could make the past week.
Silver-plated wire and fake swarovski roundels.

An other color of the fake swarovski's.

Silver-plate wire and black glass pearls.

Silver-plated wire and jump rings, acrylic drop beads.
Aluminum stainless steel coated scales, neoprene rings and a little white moon.
(I have no idea what material that one is, it looks like chalk)

Silver-plate wire and dyed Howlite.

The other side of the Howlite

Week 16, ........Holy Communion jewelry

The last parts of the Holy Communion jewelry I had to make.
A hairband / tiara. Gold-plated base (silver-plated was out of stock)
Czech crystals and gold-lated wire.

So the little sister would feel left out (**read jealous) I made her a little bobby pin.
Again the Czech crystals and tis time with silver-plated wire.

Week 15

About a year ago a friend of mine gave me her rice pearl necklace and bracelet.
She asked me to make it into new sets for her two daughters for when they have their holy communion.
The original plan was to make two necklaces, two bracelet and matching earrings.

When I made the first necklace, I changed the plan, all the metals are sterling silver and I thought making bracelets for the kids was not such a bright idea, because they might loose them.

So I made my friend a necklace too, mixed in both colors of the ones her daughters get.

This one is the first set, for the oldest child "Kiki"
4 mm topaz swarovksi, tiny pearls and sterling silver.

The set for the youngest child "Lily"
4 mm olivine swarovski, tiny pearls and sterling silver.
No earrings for her yet, she wants to wait with piercing her ears.

The two swarovski colors combined for my friend "Marilyn".

And a plain glass bead bracelet with gold toned aluminum rings.

Week 14 // Pendants

These pendants I'm very proud of.

Week 14 // Bits and Bobs

A few small tries I didn't want to go to waist.

This one started as a ring, but I measured it wrong so I changed it into a bead.

Week 14 // Rings

I only made two rings this week, but I couldn't decide which photo to place.

Week 14 // Earrings

These are all the earrings I made in the past week

Just something I played with.

Vintage mop disks and SP tassels
