There was, however, one area I had never even bothered to look at in depth. That was the jewelry making area. It seems tedious and just plain difficult to string beads and bend wire. Well, today I ventured in to that unknown area. I wanted some earrings for my son's wedding. I knew what I wanted and I figured it would be easier to make them than to find them. Swarovski now makes beads, thank you Jesus! So I was able to really get what I wanted. I also thought I would make a pair for the Mother of The Bride as a gift.
Here are my first two attempts at jewelry making:
These are my earrings. The hearts looks gold or champagne in color in the photos, but they are really more clear. My dress is silver.
The Mother of The Bride doesn't wear big earrings, so I made hers smaller. Her dress is royal blue so I put the royal blue beads in the earrings. Again, the butterflies appear gold or champagne in the photos, but they are really more clear.
All of the beads are Swarovski. I really like how they came out! I didn't find it tedious at all. It actually went more quickly than I had anticipated. I think I have a new hobby!!!
