This summer I decided to try out jewelry making & have been really enjoying it thus far! I think I’ve gotten earrings down…(here area few examples, though I’ve given a number to friends/family that I sadly didn’t take photos of)
This weekend I decided to try making wrapped stone necklaces & pendants. I got the idea from a craft show. The necklaces & earrings that a woman had for sale I decided were much too expensive & I thought “hey, I can do that!”… so I did!
I bought the supplies at Michaels & collected some stones from the beach:
Here are some of the necklaces & pendants I made. I had the suggestion (from my father) to get a tumbler to smooth out the stones, so I may look into it. I really like the almost primitive look of the stones, metal & leather together, though.
The stone on the left in the bottom photo is actually a piece of fossil I collected & you can see little shells in it!
I already sold the red necklace to a friend, so I am now thinking of making a bunch & possibly selling them at the local Farmer’s Market or craft shows… Need to think of a fun name, though. Any suggestions?
