New and Redone Jewelry Pieces

While I’ve been crocheting like crazy lately (don’t know what triggered this renewed interest from my past)  I still found time to create some new jewelry pieces.

These onyx, heart shape earrings were a custom order.  They were originally designed with an amethyst heart.

I purchased some thick sterling silver wire (12 gauge) when silver prices had dipped for a while and made this simple bangle.

This hammered copper cuff was a return to my earlier, rustic style.  I love making the clasp and working with sheet metal.

A necklace made from necklaces I had disassembled to create a new look.  Sometimes I’m not happy with a piece I made earlier (in this case, several) so I take them apart and redo them.  Now I’m happy with it.

Maybe because the weather has been colder and I’m indoors more, I’ve also been baking a lot.  I even made homemade dog treats!
