Sharing the jewelry love

Every year I'm always making Xmas gifties at the last minute! I never learn... This year is all about jewelry. I got my bracelet repurposed into a resizable choker with a matching pair of earrings this week. All total the choker and earrings cost me under $10.

BEFORE

The bracelet consisted of four pieces chained together. Nice but not perfect.

I talked to Dominique at Collective Stone about my plan for the necklace and earrings. She helped me with the resizable cord and the earrings. I love how the choker and earrings worked out!

AFTER

I'm giving this set to my very good friend Marnie. I think it'll look gorgeous on her!

I really like how easy it is to change your mind with jewelry design. First phase for the bracelet repurposing on the left and the final phase on the right. So much better!

And the bonus was I was able to use the new chain to update a different necklace!

I'm mailing this necklace to Edmonton tomorrow for my friend Rhonda. We're exchanging crafty items. She gets the necklace and I get some wall art... Sharing the crafty love! Love it!

Button Broaches...

I gave some of my button broaches away this week. Who would have thought something so easy to create would be such a big hit but they were... So nice to make pretty things and then give them to friends. These are the buttons I added bar pins to then gave away.

2011 has definitely been full of gratitude and appreciation for me. I am a very blessed girl with lovely parents, great friends and a life full of possibility. Bring it on 2012!
