Making Jewelry


For those of you who already signed up, don't forget there is a learn-how-to-make-earrings party tonight (wed. 3/12) at the Ditton's. For those who didn't sign up, but still want to learn, I am trying to have another party to accommodate you. (In fact, leave a comment here if you want to sign up for another one.)

It's such a gratifying and simple skill. Although I'm a major klutz, I've been able to make most of my jewelry since I learned how a couple years ago. Additionally, it's a very inexpensive craft. These are a few of the earrings that I've made in the last few months. They might not be to your taste, but if you learn how, every pair you make can be completely your style. Imagine making earrings to coordinate with your outfit before you walk out the door to church. It brings new meaning to the word "custom."

Abby - I for sure want to make it to another session, as I am pretty sure that I won't be able to sneak out tonight.By the way, I love the leaves!

Abby said...

Thanks so much! I can't find those leaves anymore.

We definitely need to have another little earring party. I just got back from the first one and I think there are a few more earring addicts out there now.

Your earings are darling.

Abby,
Have you every purchased jewelry making supplies from Fire Mountain Gems? They have a huge warehouse in Grants Pass, Oregon. My mom orders from them frequently and they have great quality supplies.

Abby- that was so fun! Thanks again for showing all of us. You have my mom and I hooked, we're off to buy round nose pliers now. :) Looking forward to the next earing-making session!
