For My Daughter

I have been busy making jewelry for the bridesmaid's in my son's wedding.  I have a daughter that has been watching mom  make jewelry that she would actually wear... waiting patiently for me to work on jewelry for her for the wedding.

I have a collection of old jewelry from an aunt that we went through and found some interesting clear resin beads (I think) and some gold painted wooden beads.  We made up a bracelet and earrings to go with her outfit for the rehearsal dinner.  She is wearing a cream lace top.


She is happy and I have sore fingers... the sterling wire I used for the wedding jewelry is much easier to work with than the brass.  I am enjoying wire wrapping finally!  I have struggled to get this process down to where I am happy with it.

 I can't believe it is July 1st already!  This year is going by fast.  Hope you are enjoying your summer!  It has been a hot one!

  3. Love what you made for your daughter, and to make it from previously owned family jewelry (either resin or real gemstones) makes it more special! Have a wonderful 4th!

  4. These pieces are gorgeous! I love repurposing vintage beads that have been in the family. It will be really rewarding seeing the pieces worn at the wedding!
