It's time to revamp my style.
(No, that isn't Chloe)
I've become a little too lazy when it comes to clothes and this summer I want to rock it out, big time, when it comes to clothing. Some shopping was done last week and I've got new summery dresses and some new sandals as well....now it's time to find some new jewelry.
Now, I could go to a store that specializes in fancy jewelry, like Kranichs. They offer some fantastic looking pieces....I mean, seriously look at this Ritani princess engagement ring:
Okay, so I don't really need an engagement ring. :-) But, isn't that fantastic?? Or how about this Verragio Parisian:
Okay, back to reality. What I have been thinking about (and doing, a little bit) is making my own jewelry. A while back I made some feather earrings. Then I made some twisted wire sea glass earrings. Haven't made any necklaces yet....bead work kind of intimidates me, to tell the truth. If I can come up with a successful product, I'll be sure to post a tutorial!! Do any of you have any tips for a beginner??
Gawd, I would love to be able to make something like this, wouldn't you?????
