Adventures In Jewelry Making: First Time!


Adventures In Jewelry Making End Result

I’ve been thinking about making jewelry for a little while, so today I decided to head on over to Michaels and get some supplies. I ended up with several charms (which I decided to save for a rainy day since they were silver, and I used the bronze-colored chains), an 18 inch chain, a 24 inch chain, and a multi-strand chain that I ultimately decided to seperate. I also picked up some silver charm bracelets and toggle clasps, and some jump rings to link everything together.

I checked my collection of charms that I already had and found three that I thought would look perfect with the chains I purchased. I used a charm that resembles an ancient chinese coin (and is double-sided, and therefore provides two different looks! Can’t beat that), a charm that is an anchor, and a diamond-shaped charm with a bronze rose on it. I attached the anchor to one of the chains that I took away from the multi-strand, and used the rose on the 24 inch chain and the coin on the 18 inch chain. I plan to visit Michaels again soon and see if I can find some more charms that would go with these necklaces (I think one charm each is a bit too simple) but for now, I’m going to enjoy having three new pieces of jewelry!
