I Made Another Jewelry Set

When Al and I went to Jo-Ann I picked out 5 strands of speciality beads, 2 mostly red and 3 mostly black.  Since I used one of the black ones for my first try at jewelry making, I thought that this time I would use one of the red ones.  This strand was just 9 large red beads and 20 small round black beads.  I tried out several different arrangements and decided that with the addition of some more of my generic red, black, and silver beads I would have enough to make a necklace, a tw0-strand bracelet, and earrings.

I think that I’m getting better at this, but not very quickly.  This set took me more than two hours to make.  I had to rearrange the necklace several times before I liked the way it hung on my neck.  But I’m really happy with the way that it turned out, I’ve worn it half a dozen times so far, and it’s perfect with my black and red wardrobe.

About sunflowerswank

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
