So I had a whole different post planned but after driving to town in fog, teaching class and taking lessons, then driving home in the dark, I thought I'd do something that takes less preparation. In between my private sewing lessons I get to learn some jewelry making techniques. I've been especially delighted with learning how to make my own findings. These are the fruits of my labors so far.
|The purple stones are called aqua terra jasper and I|
made those cool swoopy findings.
The brown ones are just cool beads. They're the first
ones I made and learned how to wrap the wires.
I made these swoopy ear wires too! These are all real pearls. Just like we used to turn the flowers colors with food coloring in the water these pearls are colored the same way. So the colors go all through the layers of the pearl. I thought this was cool.
|More real pearls and some very sparkly iridescent beads.|
Can you tell I love iridescence?
Now I'm off to bed!
