More jingle jangles!

I've been side-tracked from my usual pursuits and have been busy creating a few pieces of jewellery through a need to create something pretty, not shop bought, but something that still looks professional. There are mother's days coming up and a few birthdays this month and I think that making something yourself is a much nicer gesture, it also means I can splurge and gain something from it too... so you sort of get a double hit! (: I've only just recently started with jewellery making and since treating myself to a professional set of pliers/tools there was no stopping me, they really do make things so much easier.
The 'Spirit' charm necklace is made with sterling silver findings & chain, a charm and tiny bicone crystals and is a tweaked version of a project I'd seen.
The earrings are composed of sterling silver ear wires, plated butterfly connectors/charms, crystal flower pendants and jump rings.
Hopefully there will be more cards to make too...... I am so glad my mojo and energy has returned (:
Hope you all have a great weekend.X
