Last night, I neglected everything else in order to focus on a little bit of jewelry making. I'd signed up for a little holiday swap on Ravelry, and the person I'm sending to happened to mention that she liked homemade jewelry, so I dug out my stash of bits and bobs in hopes of finding something usable.
What you have to understand is, I collect broken jewelry. I have three shoeboxes full of snapped chains, mismatched closures, and lonely charms & gems. They just seem to find me somehow--although, I suppose living in a house with three other women (two of them teenagers) must have a little bit to do with it. I take everything apart and upcycle all the individual pieces into new designs. Once I got started I couldn't stop, so I made three necklaces and a bracelet, and now I'm a little overwhelmed with trying to decide which my swap spoilee is going to receive.
Let's narrow it down a little, shall we?
One of those will go to one of you! Take a look:
If you want one, all you need to do is leave a little comment telling me which one you like best, and I'll randomly pick a winner sometime on this coming Monday. Good luck, everyone!
[bonus: If you have me on your blogroll, leave a link so I can go check it out, and that'll count as an extra entry in the drawing!]
