colorful new jewelry

I've been in a jewelry making mood lately...my sister-in-law is a travel-PT (physical therapist) and is in Texas right now...we missed her birthday because she'd already left here for there...so I thought, hmm...I'll send her some goodies...I don't want to specify what is for me and what is for her until she gets her package...here's a peek what I've been making...

Blue, green, and turquoise beads, accented in sparkly silver...knotted onto black waxed linen and fastened to black chain. A small black fleur de lis was added for a bit of detail.

Bright pink and green crackled glass beads knotted onto gray nylon thread to create a bracelet that reminds me of grapes :) A large, faceted, round bead through a loop in the thread provides a closure.

Round silver-tone "disco ball" earrings...on black ear wires. Simple, flashy, dressy or casual. Love.

Oblong pink tube beads knotted on black nylon thread to create a necklace with a pretty elephant charm at the focus.

I've really enjoyed drifting off into jewelry-making world this week...what do you think?

Link up your latest project every Wednesday on the Elle Belle Creative Your Way Wednesday link party!

  1. I think the bracelet is my fave... love the cluster of beads! But those earings are so sweet too! I really like the sort of vintagey feel of them!
