Necklace and Earring Set made for my DoCrafts Jewellery Demo

Hi all

Iv'e been busy making jewellery for my next DoCrafts Demo on Saturday 18th August at The Art Shop in Kelly Bray, Callington.

When designing crafty items, I like to think outside the box and come up with something original and different.  I also get wonderful inspiration from other DoCrafts Designers who kindly share their ideas (take a look on the Demonstrator Galleries on the DoCrafts website for inspiration).  http://www.docrafts.com 

Other Designers -  Nikki Smith for instance always  give me inspiration, especially when I have a crafting block, which we all do at some stage. 

I love making all sorts of jewellery items and using the beads to create all kinds of crafty items, not just,  necklaces, bracelets and earrings but also for embellishing flowers, using beads to create backgrounds etc., More to come so watch this space......  

Beads can be used for single strand necklaces or multi-strand necklaces as you see here on the left. I plaited each single strand, one chain (with ribbon threaded through), one seed bead and pearl strand and one larger pearl strand to form this necklace.  Hope you like it. The earrings were made using beads threaded onto Headpins. More to come on the jewellery front in the very near future.
