Can you guess?

I've decided I need to get my butt into gear, get all of my materials out of storage and start making again ASAP, so to kick start me I've been shopping, on Ebay of course.
Here is just some of the things I've bought.

Can you guess what I'm going to be making with these?
I am thinking of altering them slightly, as others buy these too, so I'm thinking add a few Cabochons on, or extra detail and design. I am going to make them unique.

A little Alternative

So having not made any jewellery for a while even though I have been meaning to I decided to make some jewellery to wear for a friend's birthday party.

I love this design, it was meant to be alternative looking.

During the making process it was so difficult to make. Obviously the Cabochon needed gluing, and the E6000 that I use takes a while to set, so whilst trying to get the chain attached the cab was sliding all over. Eventually it set.

I have never found anything more difficult than putting tiny pin prick holes into black velvet to put a jump ring through to attach the chain. I must have stabbed myself a dozen times, maybe more but after half an hour of struggling I managed it.

Next I decided to make earrings to match, well not matching earrings but the whole alternative style.

I thought different lengths would be a great look, everyone loved them at the party and was shocked I made them.

New Year's Resolution

As many people know I spent my first Christmas away from my family and spent it with my Partner and his family.

I took with me loads of beading supplies, so much so that I had to take 2 seperate bags with me, one for beading supplies and one with Christmas presents and clothes in.

I do love making jewellery and I love Gothic items, clothing, jewellery etc. but I know not everybody does, so when I make jewellery I make a bit of Gothic as well as more 'ordinary' items.
Having taken everything with me I spent 10 days on the sofa watching television. How boring was I?

I never made one piece of jewellery!!!

So I have decided that this year, 2012 is going to be a new beginning. I am going to make at least 3 new pieces a week. The only problem with making this amount is being able to afford it, therefore I also need to start pushing on the selling a bit more.

2012 is going to be a great year I think
