Once I put away my sewing mess from my last creative buzz, I decided to get out my jewelry making mess ;-) Thanks to some ideas I found on Pinterest (click HERE to view my Jewelry Board to see my inspiration pieces) I've had a lot of fun creating.
These ones are so simple and the possibilities are endless since you can use any paper and colors you want. I ordered my glass tiles and bails from Amazon and used Liquid Glass to put them together.
I think I am going to turn these ones into magnets instead of jewelry.
Here is a simple birthstone bracelet that I made for my mom. It has all of my family's birthstones plus my brother's family.
Kaylee wanted to make a birthstone bracelet as well, but she wanted to include grandparents and great grandparents from both sides of the family too, so hers can be a double wrap bracelet OR a necklace.
I also had fun with the nest jewelry that I've seen all over - I had a good variety of wires in my stash, so it's been fun to mix and match. My pictures are not good but you get the idea.
Brianna loved these and wanted to join in so here are the rings she started with:
Then she wanted to make a matching set which turned out super cute.
I remember wanting to do these Washer necklaces a couple of years ago when I first saw them but then I forgot about them until I saw them pop up on Pinterest. So fun and simple, and like the tile necklaces, you can really customize with the papers and colors you want.
I made this one for a friend's birthday last month, so I decided to make a little gift box to put it in. I cut the box using my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. I kept the box simple, just sanded the cardstock and tied with a ribbon - here it is closed...
For the inside piece I cut another box, just 1/4" smaller and trimmed off the half circle edges. Then I punched holes with my Crop-a-dile and cut to the holes to hold the cording. Here it is before I put each piece together to give you an idea.
Another thing we've been playing with are Shrinky Dinks - but I will share those pics in another post. I have been attempting to make rings from it but so far no luck, they cool too fast and break as I'm bending them :-(
