Making Jewellery Again

I have been making some different bits and pieces this week... and trying not to get upset by my mum's behaviour... she can't help it, but it's still very distressing... so I am making jewellery so I don't have to think about it!!! The make at Simon Says Stamp and Show is anything goes, so I shall enter this piece into their challenge...

 This is a close up of one side of the central piece. I have two bits of chain here, and the flower is attached to the smaller chain. I wrapped the roses, and hung them from the other piece of chain...

 This is the whole necklace, with the large pendant, which is an encased butterfly!!! - Well, I poured UTEE on to it, inside it's case, after I lined it with a piece of Sir T!m paper...

 And of course it had to have a tag!!! - top right (your right that is...) The butterfly is quite sparkly with his UTEE jacket on!!!

 This bead cap is fabulous, and opens enough to wrap around this lovely faceted bead... I ordered some more today!!!

 I used some Sir T!m leaves to wrap this bead... same colour as the large round one we saw earlier...

 The whole thing again, and  pair of earrings above, made from the same sort of glass beads as in the necklace...
 I used some of the wrapped roses as drops with the beads for the matching earrings... I really enjoyed designing this set, and look forward to wearing it... So, this will be my piece for SSSS this week. No for number 2...

 This pendant is made from a Vintaj round blank, popped through a texture folder and my Cuttlebug - thank goodness for him cos my Victor Vagabond Mk 11 has gone caput !!! So that's two since Crimble, or whenever they came out!!! I don't think I shall be replacing him, cos it's SO disappointing when you use him one day and he is dead the next!!!! boo hoo, poo!!!

I joined several layers of Sir T!m flowers and foliage to make this drop...

 Same here at the back, but a Vintaj rose in front... I made this necklace to fasten at the front, with a large hook. I am thinking of wrapping it, or altering it in some way...

 This large metal bead has great texture...

So this is the whole piece... it jangles really pleasingly, and I got to use my very newest tool to make some holes - the punch from Sir T!m.... it's great and does lovely ickle 1/16" holes just right for jewellery.. I have a couple more of the creamy cube beads to make a pair if earrings... that will be for tomorrow... off to post this post on the SSSS site before I change my mind!!!
Thanks for looking
Love and Light
