All You Need Is



One of my Christmas presents.


Keeper Of The Coin

A little follow-up post to my Mystery Coin…. I knew I wanted to do something with it, but wasn’t sure exactly what, so I went to the craft store and looked around to see what I could find, and this locket was just perfect for it. As you can see, it’s not finished. I still need a chain for it, and I’m thinking of adding something else to it, too. Some crystal beads maybe? I’ll have to look through some jewelry making books to get some ideas…


2011/196: The Best Things In Life Are Free

Like this cute little ring!
I received a $10 off a $10 purchase coupon from JC Penney in the mail (love those!), and found this ring on sale for $9.99! And you know me… can’t resist a heart 😉

And so I did.  My first attempt at making jewelry. I bought the flower charms sometime last year, and added one to my charm bracelet. Then last week I bought the green beads and thought they would go perfectly with the green center of the flowers.
Wrapping the headpins (the piece that goes through the bead) was not easy, and I can’t even tell you how many of them I messed up!! It looks a little sloppy, but I can deal with that 😉

Before I made the earrings, I made this necklace, insprired by Becky’s Necklace. My best friend sent me the little camera charm as a surprise, and I just HAD to make a necklace! The little frame (you can see just a small part of it in the top of the picture) was a bit of a problem. I used to see them at Michaels Arts & Crafts when I had no need for them, but when I needed one, well, there were nowhere to be found! Thankfully Becky had one in stock and sold it to me, and all I needed to do was decide on a picture. I also found headpins with a tiny little heart at the end… couldn’t have been more perfect! I only ruined three of those headpins in the process.

(Facebook friends can see a different shot of the necklace in my Wall Photos album)
