I have been working so hard the last couple of days decluttering all the kid’s bedrooms. I’ll talk more about that later. I needed a little break and had some jewelry supplies on hand, so I decided to make something pretty for myself to wear. I bought these necklace rings at a cute store in Jackson Hole last year, but hadn’t done anything with them yet. (I can’t remember the name of the store, but it was upstairs, right across the street from the downtown park).

Here’s the other supplies I used. Plus of course, beads.

String the beads you want to use on the wire. I am not using technical, jewelry making lingo here because I don’t know it. That’s why you get pictures.  

SS850432

Cut off the excess wire with the pliers, then use the end to make a loop.

SS850446

Make 2-3 more in the same way. Put them on a jumpring and add a charm. To open the jumpring, hold one end with the pliers and twist it away from the other end (don’t pull away). To close the jumpring, twist the ends back together using the pliers.

They were so easy to make. I had a hard time stopping till I looked at the clock and it said 1:00am. These are the ones I got finished.

Then, of course, I had to put them together and try them on.

SS850470

I’m wearing this one today.

SS850476

I wear a lot of black, so this one will probably get worn the most.

SS850480

I love when I can make something I’m going to enjoy wearing and don’t have to spend a dime. Plus, I have almost endless necklace combinations.

SS850491

I made this for Amanda’s phone last night too. She inherited a phone from her brother and didn’t like how masculine it looked so I girlied it up a little for her. 

SS850421

There, that’s better! Peace signs fit her perfectly too. The shirt she had on yesterday had a big peace sign on it. She likes it much better and then she put a Curious George sticker on the back of it to make it even more hers.
