Glamorous Pearl and Crystal bracelet

Here is one of my first wire crochet project. 

It's made up of Light taupe pearls and clear glass crystals. 

I think all area of jewelry making are a lot of fun and I just want to make more and more and more, I think I should setup and add items to my online stores now =)

New Supplies: Stepping in to Crochet Territory

So I went to the craft store right by my house and bought some new supplies. I loved wire crochet in these two blogs (  CrochetHookeds and Be~Jeweled by Jana) and these are the blogs that inspired me to take the first step to get the crochet needles and wire. With the help of Youtube and Google I am teaching myself how to crochet with wires to make necklaces and bracelets and earrings!!

Granted I have not 'specialized' in one area of jewelry making, but hey what the heck! Might as well dive here and there and explore all the possibilities =)

Now it's time for me to say.........gnite and see you at the next blog 

( You can kinda see my struggle with the unfinished pearl crochet bracelet)

Pearly dangle

I had a pearl necklace laying around which I never wore and had no idea what to do with it. I don't know what kind of Pearls these are but I decided to cut the string open and use them for earrings

The big Pearl on each earring is the one used from the necklace and the two small pearls are Freshwater Pearls. The findings on this piece are all silver plated.

A few other projects

Pretty in Purple- Earrings with Fire Polished Crystals!!!

So a really weird thing happened! After the update in Blogger, my most recent post disappeared and I had changed the layout of my blog to the old one and that disappeared as well (figured it out thanks to Azure Islands Designs =)   ). 

Two nights ago I made these purple earrings using 4mm and 8mm fire polished Czech glass crystals on Silver plated pins and ear hooks. 

Also I am experimenting with the photographs to see if I should have a plain white background like I have had for most of my previous pictures or to have something funky

(The pictures in this post qualify as funky for me =) ).

!!!!!!!!Fly me high, up in the pastel sky!!!!!!!!

One of my experiments include these lovely earrings that I call "Fly me high, up in the pastel sky".

I fell in love with these pastel glass butterfly earrings when I was done making them!!!

 Initially I made it to sell on my Etsy store (allsparkle), but I decided that I can't part with these, and will have to make another pair to sell.

I think the main reason is the pastel colours, and the feeling of SPRING season that I got when I looked at them =)
