My bead jewellery

Ok, a few people have been asking about the jewellery that I was making and selling before Christmas, so I took some photos at the last event.

The silver shapes, chains, broochpins, earhooks etc. are bought ready-made, but I put them together with beads, wire etc.

These are bracelets that I only began making this year.

A close-up of one of the necklaces in the first picture, to give you a better idea of its construction.

I also have a huge board of earrings - they're quite quick to make and customers like to have a choice of earrings to match a necklace, so I usually make several pairs of earrings to go with any necklace.
I've left this photo this size because the earrings weren't all that visible when the picture was smaller.

So, there you go.
I do enjoy making this sort of jewellery, but I really loved the college course I did in silverwork and miss that kind of work. I'm looking forward to starting my evening class - I really need a refresher in soldering, sawing etc. and then I'll start buying tools to do silver jewellery at home. :)

I really like the necklace in the center of the second to last picture. How much (estimate) would something like that cost, including shipping? Maybe in a darker color. :)

I love it! I agree with Tru--that green one in the next to last picture is gorgeous! You do a great job, hon!

*hugs*

Wow. If that's the quality of your beaded jewellry, I can't wait to see what you're going to turn out in your silver classes!

I can attest to to how good Mouse's jewellery is :D I love the necklace and earrings she sent me the Chrissy before last!

Tru, I'm pretty sure that necklace is quite a bit darker that it looks in the picture. I'll have to dig it out and get a better picture. (And look into postage costs. ;-) )
