Well, I've been into making some jewelry pieces I've been wanting for myself. Thought I'd show what I've been up to lately. Sadly, yes... it was wholesome. :) LOL
First I made myself a bee bracelet. In case you don't know Melissa means Honeybee so that is why you see so many bees on different Melissa pages (not just mine.. and there is actually only one on this blog!). I made it so I have magnetic links on either side of the bee centerpiece. The round "coins" are honey colored fake pearls interspaced by black crystals. The magnets make it easy to put on and take off.
Well, since I made this bracelet, my mom was going to a school reunion. She wanted to give her friends something special. She looked at me with those sad eyes (I hate it when parents learn from their kid!). So... I came up with:
The roses are gold and silver I've alternated with a jet bead in between. The flat beads are glass and this one has a magnetic clasp for it to be easy to put on.
What do you think? I made an extra since I had enough beads and I might put it up in my Etsy store. Hmm....
Oh and guess what? I found the watch face on sale! Yay! My inner cheapskate was happy. :)

I had some silk ribbon in purple and green and wove it though the large chain. I then added real pearl dangles and one crystal dangle (next to the pendant) to the necklace. I'm quite happy with it and the bead I got to go with it (I decided against it) I was going to make into a matching bracelet, but I've just changed my mind and I'm going to make a different necklace. One that I can wear for more everyday.
Sorry about the pictures. I need to dig out my better camera, but the one I used is so much easier. Yea.. I know... excuses... ;) So, that is what else I've been up to besides reading in my spare time. How about you. Do anything fun lately?
