Pearls and Crystals

This bracelet was created per the request 
of my Husband's cousin, Shelly.
She wanted a white pearl bracelet with gold accents.
So I looked in my gold plated stash and saw that I had these 
sweet pearl and crystal links.
The rest of the bracelet came together quite quickly.
Now I didn't have a lot to choose from when it 
came to the right color of gold toggles.
So I hope she'll be okay with this quirky
hammered star toggle.

Earrings Everyday - June Challenge

This is my answer to this months challenge .
What you see here is first and second try at wire weaving.
Picked up a book that is new to me
Weaving freeform Wire Jewelry
by Kaska Firor.
In there it shows how to make a pair of dagger earrings.
I had noticed the pattern in the skylight.
Hey ...these are really similar. So I got to experiment and 
answer this months challenge at the same time. 
The Guggenheim museum central atrium

Now the funny part to me is that a friend was over 
today and were were making another pair of these 
when I remembered ....
Oh no! I hadn't created a post. 

Thank You  Erin ,
for another great challenge.

Why not check out what the other participants came up with

I Hit the Mother Load

Wow! I sure did hit the mother load! 
I received all of these lovely bracelets 
in the mail today from my Mom.
She made them all just for me.
I love them and I love being spoiled.
Thank You so much Mom!
