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.
