Christmas Crafts

There are ten women in my family, not including me, and I decided to make them all jewelry for Christmas this year.  I have always loved making jewelry, but I have recently stepped up my game and become more ambitious this year with different materials.
Ready for Christmas day!
I made a variety of things this year, necklaces and bracelets mostly.  I got several of my designs from pinterest and then modified them to my liking.  

There bird nest necklaces were for my mom, cousins and granmother.  I made each one a little different and personalized for each of the recipients.  They were real easy to do, especially with this how to that I followed for my first one that I made: DIY Bird Nest Necklace

I made these for my mom and aunts.  I also found this design on pinterest, but was also inspired by some similar jewelry that I saw in St. Paul de Vence, France a few years ago.  My design varied a bit from the two inspiration pieces, but in the end I was very happy with the end result.  Who doesn't love some pearls and hemp!!

I mustache you a question!  I saw these beautiful silver mustaches and couldn't resist.  I made one for my brother's girlfriend and one of my co- workers.  They loved them and I thought they turned out pretty great!

This is one of my favorites that I did.  Possibly because I love bows so very much!!!!!!  I found this on pinterest once again, but I varied a bit.  I made it from leather and my dad put the snaps on it to finish it up.  I took diy photos when I made it, so I will post those soon.  Here is where I got the original design from.  Bow Braclet

Merry Christmas and Happy Crafting!
