Earring day!

I get inspired some days to make a TON of whatever I’m working on… stacking bracelets, knit coasters, drawings, earrings. I just had an earring day, I made five pairs!!! The sad part is I will probably not feel like making earrings for a while now…

Two pairs that I gave as a gift…

The other three…

The Lanyard Gift

Oh I’m so happy I gave this a go! I think it will be one of my new favorite things to sew! What is a great gift for someone who just got their drivers licence? A lanyard to carry keys! I was inspired to make this when I saw the hardware pieces lying around in my jewelry making drawer, and I had been invited to a 16th birthday party… so:

Mwahaha, I have defeated you sewing machine! Success!

(I usually lose when battling it out trying to create something with the sewing machine) ;)

Teal Button Necklace

You know… I really love buttons!

I made an outfit with this necklace that I had made some time ago, and realized that I had never posted about it! Oh the shame… I even took pictures of it right after I made it. Once again I remind myself how forgetful I can be.:)

Anyway… on to the necklace!

I thought about making a tutorial for this, but all I did was wire the buttons together with flexible jewelry making wire. As you can see in the second picture, there is one clasp attached to the side of the necklace and another clasp attached to the chain on the opposite side… I can use any necklace chain with this bib piece! I think it would be fun to make another one in a v-neck shape, or a circle… the possibilities are endless people!

Simple Silver

I made these earrings a while back when I first started to experiment with chain. Just simple chain on ear wires, yet somehow they are very delicate… I like them!:) Since then chain has become a favorite with me and my jewelry making endeavors!

Yellow Button Earrings

More button jewelry! Buttons are so much fun to make jewelry out of. I made these in a matter of minutes! They are light weight and shiny on one side, love them!

Jar Beautification

I use jars to store a lot of my crafting do-dads, only thing is they’re not that pretty.:) So I decided to try to make them a little easier on the eyes with some burlap, lace, ribbon and paper!

I think this top one is my favorite!

Red Earrings

The other day I was wearing an outfit with red in it, but I don’t have too many pieces of red jewelry. So after thinking about how little time I had left before leaving for church I decided to make a quick pair of red earrings.

I love how they turned out! Red and simple.:)

Ahoy Ring

I got the silly idea to make a knotted twine ring with a button on top. It kinda worked! I had the perfect thing for it too, it’s actually a button cover. I love how it turned out!
