My Jewelry Making Attempts...

I thought I'd show you one of the necklaces that I made for each of my girls for Christmas. I just found the photos, so this is a late post, but better than none. I used scrapbooking embellishments and some random miniatures found here and there and attached eye hooks to make most of the charms.
Long ago, I had a small Stained Glass Company. It only lasted a few years. ( I did a lot of artsy stuff to help make ends meet when my children were young. I was also trying to find my niche and what I wanted to do with all that creative energy that seems to want to seep through my cracks if I don't express it some way or other) Anyway, I used those soldering skills to make the photo charms for the necklaces. Each girl got one of the six of us women, a photo of them as a child, a wedding photo of their Dad and I and a wedding photo of their own marriages.

I also made these little round charms out of two half spheres and put their own children's photos and names in those. It was fun, and the girls liked the necklaces. They can add on to them to make them even more personalized.
Thanks for letting me brag........

Hi i saw your art at the little strip mall place in scottsdale i went with my mentor and shes in the wickenburg art club but i saw your necklaces and i really loved them. It was really unique. I realy liked the one necklace it said "Create" with angel wings and then where it has a bunch of stuff on the botom it had a piece where it said "Guilty for coloring outside of the lines" and it had like a mugshot on the back of some smiling women =] I had to pick up your business card and let you no how much i loved ur jewerly making attempts =]
