making jewellery

 
 
Look, I've actually done something productive these holidays! How strange! Mind you this was only an hour-long feat compared to the millions of hours spent playing Skyrim and The Sims, but I still feel as though I have done something worthwhile. I don't have many jewellery making skillz just yet, but I think I am getting better. I've never been really good at anything arty farty so I am quite pleased with these creations! Yay. There are other things that I want to learn how to do, including sewing and drawing, but jewellery making/beading is quite fun and I want to make more and more!

Thanks for saying nice things about my last post, I feel a bit silly about posting those pictures online as it was something I tried to hide for a long time (yeah I'm a poet). I asked my boyfriend if I should remove the photos and he said, "nooooooo don't be silly." So they will remain. I will just have to post a lot more than usual so that the photos get pushed to the next page, haha.

One last thing - today I won my first giveaway! Hurray! Thank you to Denise of Gray Lavender. I am soon to be the proud owner of some totally sexxxxy shapewear. Oh yeahhhh!

  1. Congratulations on the giveaway :) And your jewellery is really aweseome - the necklace especially reminds me of a similar one I have and love the style to bits. Where did you get the bits and pieces for making them? I'd like to have a go myself, but don't know where to start! x

  2. @Milly Thank you! I got the charms and beads of the necklace from eBay, and took the little birdies off a necklace that was falling apart. I also bought a jewellery making kit from a craft store to get me started, you should definitely give it a go!

  8. AWWW YEAH WIN THAT SHIT GIRL. These pieces are so pretty! I hardly ever wear jewelry besides rings or the occasional necklace. I feel bad for my mom since she always tries to buy me jewelry for xmas and I never wear it :C

    You should make an etsy shop and sell some things!

    @Chantelle, thefabulousgypsy and Alannah - I can never get sick of playing the Sims! So much time, so little Sims to electrocute. because they have no handiness skills.

    @Lauren - I have been thinking about the Etsy thing! Will have to look into it. Dunno if good enough yet though!

    Also, don't even worry about having posted those pictures. That took guts and I think we all applaud you for doing so. You made it easier to relate to for most girls.

  34. luxury Fashion Stores in Dubai are one of the most important choice of fashionistas. Swanky malls in Dubai have some of the designer and luxury fashion accessories like luxury Scarves, Stoles, Hand Bags, Shawls, Shoes & Watches. Presence of world's top most brands have made Dubai a fashion city where versatile accessories are flawless in style statements.
