Handmade Jewelry From Leftover Beads…

In my last post I mentioned that I had made a few jewelry pieces from the extra fair trade brass and bone beads leftover from my handwoven runner projects.  I thought my readers might like to see some of those pictures so here they are…

I made these earrings and then made this earthy necklace to go with them.

The round elephant disc is made from FIMO clay that I impressed using one of my rubber stamps.   Recently I added a light layer of off-white paint to just the elephant part of the clay and then burnished it with a light layer of antique bronze coloring.  I’ll try to post a picture of those changes when I get a chance to take a few more pic.   

Pictured above are several additional sets of earrings that I made.  Two of the pairs of earrings have lava beads in them.  I added the lava beads because they are porous and I can add a drop of essential oil to them.  It’s like having a little therapeutic uplifting scent added to the back of your ear.   

I  made this necklace to match the above earrings.  Once again I used FIMO clay  for the bottom focus part of the necklace.   This time I added a little bit of bronze color to the stamped design in the clay.  This is one of my favorite jewelry sets to wear, and since the colors are neutral these pieces go with lots of different outfits.

This is just a quick post to show you some of my handmade jewelry.  My next post will include pictures of the other runners I made and embellished with the fair trade brass and bone beads.  

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Until next time….
