I have several posts today, including some fun jewelry that I made and a couple late Christmas Cards.
This first post is Jewelry I made using SU!'s retired Simply Adorned kits. I'd been planning to make bracelets, a necklace and a couple of ornaments using the supplies I had purchased, but took it a step further by asking each person to select the beads and locket style that they wanted for their piece of jewelry. This way it's personalized for them, so less guessing on my part!
This first one might be my favorite of the Bracelets and was made for the newest addition to our family - Chirstina. (My Nephew proposed to her on Christmas!!!).

The photos show both sides of the locket - the Butterfly and Love (above) and the Heart and Flourish are from three different SU! stampsets - see below for those details. These are all SU! Simply Adorned items and each has it's own clasp.

Below are more images of the Bracelets given to my Niece and two of my local Sister in Laws. This next one shows the bracelet clasp, and includes an SU! heart charm.

Each of the lockets contain fun little stamped treasures - and they all have glitter and liquid pearls added as well. They're so cute up close and in real life because each is like a tiny mini card inside a locket!! I love how the all turned out!

This last one is also a favorite of mine - the little butterfly and flower are so sweet and sparkly in real life - not sure how well they show up in these photos - hopefully you can see all the details.

The next group of photos shows the long necklace made for my Mom. She is 79 and still loves dressing up every chance she gets - which ALWAYS includes the most fashionable jewelry (and high heels whenever possible LOL!)!! She is such a special lady, one of those people who truly gets better with age. I hope I can follow in her footsteps.

I'm definitely not a jewelry photographer and realize I could have done better on these. Still they do show the stamped images inside the lockets as well as all the beads and charms. Hope you like them!

These were super fun to make, and in the process I realized that making jewelry is easier than I thought!! And these are especially fun because I was able to add a personalized stamped design to each - for me that's what really makes them special. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!!
