Newest Completed Jewerly Projects

I have made a few new jewerly items since I was last able to get online. I don't believe I have the tutorials done, so for right now I just wanted to give you a preview for what is to come. =)

I wanted to make something kind of glitzy, so I made this rinestone chain neckless.

 One of the girls from work saw me wearing the one above and she asked for one in purple, so I made this version for her. I had to adjust it twice for her length, but otherwise it was a hit. (And easy to make)

I was going to give this bracelet coming up to my friend, but after it gave me such a hard time I desided I was going to keep it for myself. I felt I deserved it. The gemstones need two wires to be strung and it turned out to be a PAIN to get it tight enough to not show spaces when its on. Finally got it tight enough, but it is for sure NOT my finest work. I was rather disappointed in it, and most likely will not use these gems again.

Its rather hard to find cute feather earings again, so I thought I might give it a shot. It turned out ok, other than the fact that it was hotter than hell out so everything was getting sweety and sticking to me. =)

Suprisingly its very hard to find loop earings that you can slide gems onto. Took me months to find some and so I was just playing around with them. I have plans to make a set for my friend in black. Hoping to get a start on it tonight. *crossing fingers*

I had seen these flower chain earings online and I thought it couldn't be that hard to do myself.... I was very wrong. I can't figure out how they get them to drape so nicely, while mine don't drape at all. So I tossed the idea and made these instead. I don't like them very much, so I might end up doing something else with them. I'm open to suggestions.

This is kind of what I was trying to do with chain, but again it just looked funny. (sorry for the "ghetto" drawing)

If you should ever come across a template from Clovers called the Flower Folder, get it. It makes some really great flower bundles and makes it so much faster. I made the largest flower (in pink) from this template, and they come in  4 sizes. I used the largest.
Since I had a BUNCH of hair clips I thought I would decorate them. These do not require tutorials, as they were just glued to the ends with a hot glue gun. My mother found a bunch of embellishment flowers and gave them to me. I don't really have any need for them, so I added them to the clips to dress them up. I also had two circle pins, so I made some 'odd' pins out of these flowers.... let me know what you think.

So this is just a quick update on my projects. I hope to get some tutorials for my other projects on here in a short order.  As akways let me know what you thought of these projects and previous ones.

Thank you.
