Handmade Jewelry

The love I have for handcrafting extends way beyond quilting.  I could not limit myself to only one category of handmade item.  Maybe, just maybe... I am a little ADD... because I always have my projects scattered around the craft room!  To be honest, there's constantly a variety of crafty stuff going on in the craft room... and in my brain.  

One of those crafty things I love to make is Jewelry.  I just can not get enough of it!  So, today I am going to share some love (jewelry love, that is) with you. Let's start with some of my earliest pieces.  These washer necklaces were fun to make!  You can do so many different things with them.  The possibilities are quite endless, actually!

 


Next up is a necklace set with a little southwestern flair and lots of fun color!
 



Hope you like this next piece.  It's a hand-stamped plastic pendant with charm!

 



Sometimes I keep it simple.  Like this beautiful silver cross and pearl pendant...
 


Last but not least, a little something to celebrate spring!  After all of the snow we had this winter, it is nice to see so many colorful flowers blooming.  The prettiest little buttercups and violets have been peeping up through the green grass.  I really didn't want to mow them down, but the grass was getting out of control, lol!  Fortunately, we still have the rhododendrons, daisies and some purple irises.  I know the fresh flowers won't last forever; therefore, I couldn't help myself... I had to make something with silk flowers to match this lovely season!  

APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS






THESE WON'T WILT AWAY, YAY!


Thank you for stopping by today and visiting my blog.  I enjoy sharing my quilts, crafts, jewelry and a little bit about my life here on the farm.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and maybe... just maybe, took the time to unwind a little from your busy life.
