Adventures in jewelry making

I accomplished another crafting goal today! I made my first piece of jewelry! I've always wanted to try but I was scared and kept putting it off. Luckily my sister-in-law's birthday is this Sunday...and she wanted a horse bracelet...and none could be found! So after a little encouragement, I decided to take on the task of making her a bracelet.

Tadah! I'm not 100% pleased with it, but hey, for my first attempt, I think I did an okay job!

Ok, looking at the mess of a bracelet on the picture is pretty bad, but on a wrist it looks pretty good! I'm excited to give it to her, and though I won't be starting a jewelry making business, expect to see more similar projects in the future. :)

Happy hump day!

Also, make sure to check out my "Link Parties" tab to see where I'm partying!

This turned out really well! Doesn't look like a "first time" piece of jewelry at all!! I also want to make my own jewelry and keep putting it off....I think you may have just inspired me to finally give it a try!
Thanks Amie!

I love that you were able to customize this bracelet for your sister! My daughter would love one just like it, she's all about horses right now. Great job and I can't believe this is your first try, it's great and she'll love it. Would love you to join me at A Crafty Soiree, every Thursday.

Jewelry can be very frustrating but very rewarding if you create something wonderful. I recently started metalsmithing (took the summer off because my make shift workshop doesn't have A/C) I love it and can't wait for the weather to turn cooler so I can start up again. If you have any questions feel free to email me (I have two kids so it might take me a day or two but I will return the e-mail). I have also tried the PMC which is FUN!!! but can be very frustrating at the same time for a very impatience person like me.
Love the piece (I'm a pearl kind of gal!)
