Four years ago when my oldest daughter was planning on heading down the isle we were on the hunt for jewelry. Not finding anything that really rocked our socks I said to her "I can do that" I had never made a piece of jewelry in my life but someone told me that if I could learn to crimp I could make just about anything. So I took a class and off I went.
I love beading. I buy beads and I love to look at them, feel the texture of them...see them shine. I took more classes. Then the youngest one decided to tie the knot and of course she was not wanting something on a string! She comes to me with something in a magizine that she saw that was chain and pearls and crystal and pouted "you can make this can't you mommy?"
I made the whole wedding party for both weddings. Wish you could see them a little better...the actual pictures of the jewelry blew up on our old computer but the Hubs thinks we have them on a disc somewhere. I also did her flowers which was something new for me because I'm not an floral person..they are all silk.
Then my daughter from another mother wanted to get hitched and I told her I would do her bling....and bling this girl wanted!
Add the earrings
and the bracelet
Something I enjoy doing and very relaxing. I hope to show you more pieces soon!
