In order to complete a week’s worth of necklaces, I had to make a few bracelets to go with them right?
I’ve had a very busy weekend, but I squeezed in three bracelets today.
In one way or another, these three tie in to the necklaces of the week. One by technique, one by materials and all by color.
I have a bag full of these vintage 60’s acrylic and brass clasps. They are what I call “Grandma Sheek”. I love costume jewelry from the 50’s to the 70’s. Hmm. Maybe that’s because my grandmother would always let me play dress up with all her baubles. Boy she had a wonderful costume jewelry collection.
I always get asked, where are the earrings???
Well, I only where studs. I figure with the bright clothing, colorful jewelry and crazy eye-glasses, I really don’t need to add one more thing!
I do when I sell jewelry, design earrings for other people, but the pieces this week were for me, so none are required.
I’m pretty psyched, I wore one of my necklaces out last night. It worked perfectly. It wasn’t scratchy. It didn’t twist and turn. All of the features I am generally looking for in a necklace.
So, I think this is it for jewelry. I’m getting the itch to try making a print with hand-crafted stamps again.
So that will begin tomorrow.
I hope everyone enjoyed their extra hour of sleep this morning. The turning back of the clocks always symbolizes hibernation for me.
