Handmade Holiday – Jewelry Edition

During the time span of age ten through fifteen I was really into friendship bracelets. I had a collection of DMC embroidery floss that would rival any big box craft store. While in high school and college my preferred jewelry medium was hemp. I remember sitting in my room between classes twisting up a few heady pieces while listening to the sweet sounds of the 60’s and 70’s. Now my focus has shifted to gemstones and wire.

I really enjoyed creating this jewelry for the intended recipients, despite having to dismantle a few pieces, several times. There is one change I’d still like to make to the amethyst necklace but seeing as how my sister-in-law loved it, I’ll just let it go.

Jasper & Tigers Eye bracelet for my mom.

Amethyst butterfly necklace for my sister-in-law.

Jasper & Moon Stone coyote necklace for my niece. (she selected the pendent during this adventure)
The pictures turned out a bit too dark for my liking, but it’s just too cold for shooting outside in natural light. I really need to build a light box. I also need to get started on my cold frames for the upcoming planting season. I’d like to have both projects finished by mid Feb. Lets see if it gets done!
