DIY Jewelery A Tutorial Of Sorts

I was looking through Etsy, as I often do, and I came across this really cute bracelet that I wanted to buy but then I saw the price and thought no way. I decided that it would be cheaper to order the materials and just make the bracelet myself, so I did. Once my stuff got here I realized I could make more than just a bracelet. I could make some cute earrings, headbands, and necklaces. So I got to work and I ended up with lots of really cute stuff. I ended up giving most of it away as gifts and just kept the earrings for myself. Isn't it funny that I wanted a bracelet and ended up with earrings? Since I made so much jewelry I think I will just post pictures of what I made and save the tutorial for a later post.

This bracelet is similar to the one I found on Etsy but I like my version better. I was able to make six bracelets, three silver and three antique bronze, with the materials I bought. I also made those cute angel wing earrings you see in the corner kind of spur of the moment.

Some more pictures of the bracelets. I was surprised at how easy they were to make. It's a little addicting, once you start you can't stop.

I decided that if I changed the direction of the background metal I could make earrings as well. The blue earrings are my favorite, I kept those for myself. I also made a ring, also spur of the moment, it was an upcycled project.

The last piece I made was a headband, the idea came to me in a dream. Sorry for the bad picture, my sister claimed it for herself as soon as she saw it. I have a bunch of ideas on more jewelry so I might make some more for Christmas if I have time.
