here are a few pairs of earrings and a bracelet I have made recently, as well as some walmart bargains. I used copper earring bases from Micheal's, with seed beads and other plastic beads. and two pairs of copper chains and seed beads. These were all super easy to make; however I find coming up with a design I like to be the hardest part.
Whenever I try to copy a piece of jewelery I have seen in a store or online I don't have any problem - but when I have to whip something up with beads and findings I have on hand I often take a long time to find a satisfactory finished product.
black, brown & copper bracelet, copper earrings and copper chain earrings.
pretty silver bugle beads, smaller toggle clasps, earring set ( times2) not shown, copper head pins
the new toggle clasps i bought on the left and the regular sized ones I usually use
even at full price, this is a good deal; except Walmart has changed their packaging and jacked up all their prices - i hate it when companies do that - but it is cool to find the discounted bargains........
i snagged 3 of these for $1.85 each..... i never noticed this smaller size before
the larger size and the smaller size
