A "charming" Show and Tell

My photos for Project 365 today are not the ones I planned………I did take the kids to a playground at Ramore Head today in Portrush, but I forgot my camera!

Instead, some pictures of some jewellery I made at the end of my jewellery course and some I made for my daughters.

Our class was a real mix of personalities and ages, and we had a wee party on our last night including some delicious home-made Mint Aero cheesecake. I really enjoyed the course, and am seriously considering enrolling for a full year long course in September in our local college.

First we have the charm bracelet I made at the class.

Then one I made for myself using an elasticated chain bracelet from Claires.

Then two I made for my daughters – they selected their own charms/beads.

I must say I really enjoy making them and am almost considering selling these in an etsy store. If you had a choice, what colours or charms would you choose?

I am not sure what appeals to me so much about charm bracelets, but I have always found them fascinating.

For more Show and Tell, visit Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home.

I can’t quite believe our Easter holiday here at the cottage is coming to an end. It has been lovely and in the most part relaxing……and it certainly beats living in the middle of our kitchen makeover.

Want another little peak of the transformation? Come back tomorrow!

  10. I love charm bracelets too and yours are no exception. I’m just not delicate enough to make jewellry and I’m very envious of people who can. I’ve big sausage fingers:) I can see why you’re tempted by the year long course, it looks like a very addictive passtime and you should definitely consider selling these.

  11. Creative Junkie

    those bracelets are so pretty! I love jewel tones – the deep reds and golds and greens.

  12. Lovely bracelets Jan. I have been doing a silversmithing course for 2 years now and it is definitely addictive but very therapeutic and relaxing too.
