Some Jewelery I made

I've been making little pieces here and there since December last year (I think). I visited a gem show and decided to give this hobby a try. I really like the gemstones. The variety in colors, textures, sizes is amazing. Every single time, I get a different result. And getting instant results is a plus! There are a few I haven't photographed, and a few that are not finished yet. Yes, even beading has WIPs! I just hope they don't become UFOs.

Here are some of my favorites. To see all the pictures, go here

Pearls & Black Beads Necklace

Coral Hoops

The next step for me would be to try some more advanced techniques. Wire Jewelery making is something I'd like to try but it requires making even more investment than what I've already made. It is the most expensive hobby I've ever had. It's so addictive. I really need to organize my stash in a single place and then I wouldn't have to worry about having stuff all over the house.

Anyhow, I'm off to do some stitching. Be sure to check back for an update on the Peacock.
