Christmas Makes

What do you make a man? Especially a man who has everything,  one who never wears jewellery as a Christmas present?

Well the answer is you don’t make them anything! but I was completely  surprised when I was asked to make a pair of cufflinks because the new shirt, purchased for the formal night on the 10 night cruise required them.

Using some rose gold-plated findings (the toggle clasp ones, but obviously just using the bar portion) a few jump rings, a flower headed headpin and a couple of cubed black agate gemstones from Jewellery Maker and within 10mins they were completed.

 

 

 

Now, pre-Christmas I whipped up a pair of earrings for my Grans hairdresser, and rather excitingly they appeared on JM tv wall of fame on the TV! I do have a clip but sadly I can’t seem to post the link   as the file is too large, so a picture will have to do instead.

So, I took a piece of silver plated chain from a JM findings pack, snipped it in to 6 pieces, attached a Amethyst from a JM bead scoop and a couple of silver plated earring findings and hey presto another quick 10 minute make.

 

 

 

Other makes include;

Bead Scoop Charm Bracelet

This bracelet was again whipped up using a bead scoop from JM, I have said it many times, the bead scoops of a mixture of gems stones are my absolute favourite buy at the moment, the sheer excitement of seeing what is in each bag, it so much fun! So for my friend in Canada I made a charm style bracelet, using 6 gems, of different cuts & colours but perfectly toned just by adding a few headpins, chain and clasp.

Using memory wire I threaded on some dagger gems similar to these on JM to again make a necklace in less than 30 minutes, the longest time was taken threading the gems on the wire!

So these are my other makes, hopefully they were well received!

Opal & Pearls
The opal bracelet is uber chunky, I added the chain because the internet is full of next seasons trends this piece is definitely on trend! 

 

Fiverr….

In the mist of my sheer excitement, which I am still buzzing about getting selected for the Sunday Experience at the JM studios

I forgot to mention that I discovered a new selling website, which sells the most bizarre, unusual, crazy things ..FIVERR 

 

So the logic for the site appears to be its free to list on the site, but there is a fixed price $5, yes five dollars, so there are so really cool people on the site selling everything from Voiceovers, Webdesign, Logo design, SEO services, everything for just $5

Check out my GIG, I will make you a rose quartz heart macrame style bracelet and post it with a love letter, to the person of your choice for just a fiverr …. how awesome is that, am still waiting on my first order but feel sure that if there people out there looking to spend a fiverr on a welsh man in a thong singing happy birthday, then a love letter and bracelet using a genuine gemstone must be appealing to someone out there in the planet!
