Here’s a selection of different earrings that I have created over the past year that I wanted to share with you.
This first pair was made as a gift for a work colleagues birthday. The leopard print beads are made from shell.
These butterfly charm earrings were paired up with a mobius ring made from some larger jump rings that I had. I have recently started to use coloured metal other than silver and quite like the effect that you get from using antique bronze coloured findings in my pieces as it makes things look very vintage.
These pretty but simple dangle earrings use glass pearls and large beadcaps.
These use some quite small but pretty beads that I had to finish off a design using some dove shaped charms.
These dangle earrings were made using some beads that I had in a petrol effect type finish.
Lastly these cute earrings were made from some little turtle beads I came across in a bead shop in Weston Super Mare that I discovered when we went for a day trip to the seaside last year.
These pictures show a variety of different handmade jewellery type things that I have made.
These are the kinds of charms you attach to bags or phones. The dragonfly one I actually have hanging from my car rear view mirror. The most complicated one was the teddy bear one made using tiger tail and seed beads, which I made for my boyfriend. Sorry about the quality of some of the photos as they are quite old from before we had a camera that could do close up shots.
This ring was made using elastic and seed beads, along with a focus bead.
The yellow star earrings are actually origami and are made from a thin long strip of paper. They are called lucky stars.
These are watches I made using some beads on tiger tail. They were made so that the strap could easily be swapped for a different design.
Here are some of the necklaces I have made, most of which are dragon fly themed.
The blue one above was actually made by my aunty, and is the person who I learned how to make these from.
The wings are made from beads called dagger beads.
They are fairly simple to make using tiger tail,and I think they look quite pretty.
The next picture shows a flower necklace I made using the same dagger beads.
The following necklace was also made using dagger beads.
This next necklace was made by wrapping wire around a pebble my brothers brought home from a trip to the seaside one day. The wire didn’t wrap how I would have liked. I am not very good at wire wrapping but I think that’s because I need to learn more about which wire is best to use as this wire didn’t hold in place very well.
This next butterfly pendant was made using very thin wire.
The below pictures are a few I took of sets that people I know have requested me to make for them.
The last picture looks like an angry face lol.
