Jewellery

I've had a go at making a bracelet and matching ear-rings for a present. I went to a jewellery making demo on Saturday and she showed us 'memory wire'. So, I thought I'd have a go. Little did I know it would take me 40 minutes to glue the tiny silver beads on the ends! Am I patient enough to try again another day and see if I can get it down to half an hour? Watch this space LO

I used tiny beads and tubular ones in pale pink and brighter pink wooden ones for the bracelet and omitted the wooden ones on the ear-rings. Would I wear them? If I could wear silver and they weren't a present, I do believe I just might. Wonder if I can get jewellery bits in 9ct gold? Anyone know?

very pretty Sarah. I used to go a huge bead shop in Covent Garden (about 15 years ago!!) I used to make my own necklaces & earings. Beads are just as nice to touch as stash!!

I want to make a bracelet and ear-rings fro a pressie too, but maybe try a protor type first as I don't really know what I'm doing LOL.
