I am rebelling at the back to school items and loving green right now. It is still time for summer jewelry, I don't even want to think about sweaters and jeans.
In this picture on the left is a vintage glass green button from West Germany. The middle is a glass vintage cabachon with little specks of white, blue and pink. I glued it onto a chunky button. It fit nicely and I thought the white made the green stand out. The far right is a finished vintage silver earring made into a ring for myself!
The earrings are brass wire with vintage components.
With the high price of silver right now, I thought it would be a good idea to wait for it to drop before buying more supplies. So I have ventured into making my own earwires from my current stash of wire. I know - it's not hard to make earwires - wrap the wire about a tube and cut - but I have never done it. This was my first attempt - practicing with brass. I hammered them a bit, and de-burred the ends with my new wire rounder. I can't believe I picked the wire rounder up at Michael's. They are carrying alot more tools. Don't get me wrong - I like my quality tools (the few that I have!). But not every tool has to be expensive, and with the weekly 40 or 50% off coupon from the paper it makes it very economical to pick up some new stuff!
