Hello blogging friends! Today, I have some earrings and a gift box to share with you. This past Friday was my mom's birthday and as part of her birthday gift I made her some new earrings and altered a little gift box to put the earrings in.
Before I share the earrings I want to let everyone know that tomorrow (Monday, May 20th, 2013) I will have a very Special Guest Blogger!! I am so excited!! Any guesses as to WHO it might be? Be sure to stop back tomorrow to find out!! ;-)
Here is the first pair of earrings. I used tear drop shaped jade colored beads, bronze flower spacers and small round light green beads.
For the second pair I used small clear beads, larger round purple beads, rhinestone spacers and light blight crystals beads.
For the third pair I used champagne crystals and silver flower bead caps.
I think the forth pair is my favorite! I used filigree bead caps, rose crystal beads, flower spacers and light pink crystal beads.
For the fifth and final pair I used silver metal filigree flowers from ButterBeeScraps and dark blue gem drops.
I can't remember for sure but I think I picked up this box at the dollar store. It had a little white bow on the top that I carefully removed. Then I made a rosette directly on top of the box. I used some tulle trim (from Hobby Lobby) and some eyelet trim (from Joann's).
I used hot glue to adhere the ribbon and I just kept going around in a circle until I reached the center. Then I added a little more hot glue, bunched up the tail end of the lace, gave it a little twist and pushed it down in the center of the rosette.
I hope you enjoy seeing some of the jewelry pieces I designed. Let me know what you think! ;-)
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see who the Special Guest Blogger is!!
Hugs & Smiles
