My First Necklace

Posted on March 1, 2009 by under Projects.    

Necklace I made for Jan  =)

Jan and I hung out at the mall yesterday after I dropped Brian off at the airport. After looking at some overpriced jewelry, I decided that I would make good on my plans of making my own. So off to Hobby Lobby we went.

After picking up $30 in jewelry making stuff (just miscellaneous odds and ends because I already had some pliers at home, which I use to work with my Art by Amy pieces), I was ready for my first try. My first project was a pair of earrings for me. Those worked out really easily because it was mainly just affixing the glass pendant to fish hook earring wire via jump ring. Quick and easy. I would have taken a picture, my camera phone kept taking it blurry so I just gave up. I think I will wear it today to show Jan.

My second project this morning was Jan’s glass heart necklace (shown above). This posed more of a challenge because I had to hide the ends of the leather cord. Although, it was still pretty simple to do as jewelry projects go. I’m giving the necklace to her at brunch today. I hope she likes it. 🙂

Anyway, I think I’m going to hit Wal-Mart on the way home for some charms and beading stuff. I’m so excited. I can’t wait to make some more stuff.
