I've been playing with jewelry a lot lately. There's something really fun about wearing your own creations! The NEST necklace I made needed something else so I made a second piece to go with it.
I'm kinda mad that I didn't notice the chain was messed in the photo, but I'm feeling too lazy to fix it!! LOL!! I just used stuff I had here in m studio. I wanted to keep the mix of metals so there is shiny silver, brass and tarnished silver for the chain.
I also really like to make stretch bracelets I can cluster together. They are so much easier to get on and off than the kind with the clasps and I can mix and match them whenever I want to. :)
I also used a key on this one. I normally tend to prefer the tarnished silver look , but brass has been growing on me! It took lots of separate elements to make the focal piece. All of it was fused together using E-6000.
More bracelets to match!!
This one is for when I really want to make a statement! That vintage broach is almost 3 inches of blingy goodness!!
This last bracelet was so easy to put together! I already had a bracelet that I bought several years ago that had broken, but had lots of charms on it. I just took it apart and used jump rings to attach to this vintage rhinestone bracelet!
While I have been collecting vintage bits and baubles for a couple of years now, all the beads, wire, and findings were found at one the big 3 craft stores here in Phoenix.
I do love to play with solder too, but sometimes you just want to put something together fast!!!
I'll be stylin' now!!!
