Em’s Jewelry

Why someone would ask Em if she was jealous is beyond me.  These are some of the jewelry she has given me over the years.  I need to polish a couple, but they are still beautiful.





The twisty-design metal connectors in the necklace in the third photo… Yeah, she made those.  I would consider myself a beginning apprentice compared to where she’s at.

She could be making so much money if she would just put her stuff up on Etsy and start promoting.  I keep bugging her about it.

I just bought a soldering torch and am going to start experimenting soon.  She needs to get her butt out here to help me, so I don’t meld my fingers together.  🙂

Earrings that match necklace..oops

I realized you can’t see the earrings in the pic. Also, I’m not sure how to post it under Em’s jewelry, sorry MJ, still learning.

My Latest Creation

As you may know, I make jewelry.  I haven’t had a lot of time to make it, and most importantly I have been running out of materials, which pretty much makes it impossible.

My neighbor at my sister’s house, Sarah, took me to a local bead store and bought wire and beads and all kinds of stuff for me to make her a necklace, or earrings and a bracelet.  I enjoy making things just for making them.  It keeps me busy and takes my mind off of other things.

This necklace is truly a “piece”.  I have had the sun for years and I did A LOT of wire wrapping on the necklace.  It has red glass beads, garnets, silver spacer’s and a silver clasp I made.

In the picture there is an odd amount of garnets on each side 11 then 12…hate it when that happens, but it worked out okay because it was too short for her.  Now there are 13 on each side of the back and it fits perfectly!  I had made a pair of earrings that became the inspiration for the necklace.  She has those on, and I forgot to take a picture of them.  I need to remember to take pictures of all of my work.  I took a pic of my earrings, almost the same as hers, except my center stone is a greenish/blue glass bead and the wire is rose colored copper.  Hers are silver wrapped copper and her center bead is the red glass beads that are in the necklace. The small round one’s are the garnets.

I’m going to try and work on the bracelet today.

I obviously need to take photography classes or something too..:)
