A Crafter's Dream

I'm so excited about these new earrings! I saw a picture of some similar earrings online and thought, hmm....I wonder if I can make those? After a couple attempts I was able to figure it out and I just love how they turned out. Yay! I love when something turns out exactly how you imagined it would. I'm sure my fellow crafters will agree. They were really time consuming to make, but worth it i'd say. I'm going to try and put some up on etsy soon. I wore the black ones yesterday, and the copper ones today and got lots of compliments. I think i'll keep these two for myself : )

upcycled button earrings

I have been a busy bee lately! Starting lots of new jewelry projects and being fortunate enough to actually finish some of them! I'm really excited about my new UPCYCLED button earrings. I love that I can take something that has been forgotten about for so many years and make it into something lovely and beautiful again. Aren't they fun?! These are just a few of them. I'll be posting them on Etsy slowly but surely so be sure to go and check them out.
I've also recently got a hammer and a stainless steel block for hammering wires and metals. I've been experimenting with this a lot and have made some earrings I'm really happy with. These and more to come shortly!
