Yesterday I decided to make myself a set of jewellery. I have been losing weight recently, and with a 15lb loss, I was able to fit into a dress that I bought some time ago, but never wore, because I got too big for it, so I made a nice set of jewellery with black and cream beads, and Swarovski crystals, to match the dress, and felt great going out for a meal with my hubby dressed in my dress and new jewels.
I also made another two jewellery sets, the first for a friend who had requested something with hearts, so I made a necklace and earrings with silver hearts, and crystals for her, using seed beads to make the chain, which I think was quite effective, because the whole chain sparkles in the light.
The second I made using 10mm Swarovski crystals in a beautiful red/orange colour. I saw these crystals when out shopping for other things, and just had to buy them. I bought 3, and had no idea what to make with them once I had them. I felt that they needed a simple design, so that the design did not detract from the beauty of the crystals, so I strung one alongside white glass beads, and used the other 2 for earrings, hanging each with a simple white glass pearl.
