Lets go on a craftventure (^-^)
This year we want to explore new crafts in the hopes of uncovering a new favourite. Eims may have settled on her No.1 but I’m still excited to experiment.
This month we’ll be picking up jewellery (making).
Before Christmas, Lil D and I made a supercute shrink plastic charm bracelet. She drew and coloured christmassy characters, we baked them in the oven then I struggled to attach them to a bracelet for her. Convinced, I was, to use the correct tools for the job. Various nosed pliers later and I decided handmade jewellery could be January’s challenge.
Just a few charms, jump rings and jewellery fixings are needed. Then a sprinkling of imagination.
My first attempt was with steampunk cogs. I played around with arranging the charms before settling on a cute pair of earrings and a simple linked keyring. Not too bad for a beginner (^-^)
