Default pretty jewelry

so I have taken some advice and made a better backdrop than my slipper.....thanks lady M. I made this stuff over the past few weeks. and worn some of it already. I have another 4 pieces mapped out and just waiting for me to sit down and put them together. Plus more equipment on the way.

So, here it is:


also, someone had asked me if I did bookmarks......sorry to say I don't remember who now though maybe I can find it in the old thread? Anyway, I have some metal bookmarks on the way so I will do some with dangly's.

The bookmarks did come up in conversation in this thread http://forums.srellims.org/showthread.phpt?=5466 so I started a thread http://forums.srellim.org/showthread.phpt?=5565 as that got me thinking about it and now I've completed the 2nd one and I'm onto my 3rd but haven't done photos of them yet. Hope that helps out Bridgid. Don't recall any other conversations about it but then again, I may not have read about it.

Actually I've got a heap of jewellery that I've made (when time permits, that is) but I think that I'll photograph them and put them in my own thread. But I will say that your style of making jewellery is completely different to mine. I still like yours though Very nice!

That is pretty jewelry indeed; I think the (harper) blue necklace with the heart is beautiful

Thanks everybody! Hans, I never thought of the blue as 'harper blue' but i did just where that the other night and I think it's my favorite piece to date. Though the heart has a tendency to flip over......still need to figure out how to stop that.

I agree the blue one just screams Pern/ It's beautiful! Long years ago I had a necklace very similar to the one on the left. It was one of my favorite things and perfectly matched a dress I also had. Somewhere along life's highways I lost it, though.

This is very lovely indeed. I like the new backdrop it showcases your work perfectly and much better than your old shoe did...ROTFL. I will have to agree with everyone else...the *Harper Blue* heart pendant is quite beautiful.
