Have a fabulous Friday!

Any progress is good progress, regardless of what you’re working towards. I’m trying to become a better runner, one half-hour walk/jog at a time. Which of your goals will you take baby steps toward today?

Birthday bling – custom designs for family

This past weekend I helped my mom and sister celebrate their birthdays.  Since their birthdays are only three days apart we tend to only have one event for them both.  We had a lovely birthday barbecue, and some relaxing family time.  The nieces had a great time running around the yard and giggling.  :)

One of the fun things about making jewellery is being able to craft some extra special gifts.  My sister tends to wear funky jewellery, so I started with a blister pearl pendant.  It’s pretty and eye-catching all by itself so I didn’t want to put something with it that would detract from it.  I chose some Amazonite tubes and simple silver glass bead spacers, and I think it turned out quite well.

My mom favours more delicate, understated jewellery.  I wanted to do something simple that would have a good pop of colour.  I went with some tiny peridot coin beads, lovely for this time of year.  I went with a split-strand necklace style, attaching the beads to some fine silver-filled chain.  This is my first time trying this style of necklace and I like it very much.  I think I’ll be doing more split-strand designs in the future.


What do you think about these designs?  Which one is your favourite?  Let us know below!
