Enough of that! I ended up having to hold off on the earrings that I started yesterday. I attempted to do some light soldering with a tool that I have, and the pieces just refused to connect. So instead of getting discouraged and sidetracked, I decided to create another piece instead. The project is not a failure by any means. I will pick it back up at a later time when I have the heavy duty tools in order to do so.
Tonight's beauty evolves from a necklace that was given to me by a friend. The necklace was nice, but I am such a bracelet and earrings girl for the most part. They inspire me more than necklaces do.
The necklace before reconstruction!
So I decided to create a simple yet elegant bracelet by adding some strands of yellow jade and adding a faux antique toggle. This piece is ultra light, unlike some of the other chunky bracelets I have been making.
I hope that you all enjoy, and don't forget to leave your comments to be entered into a drawing for free jewelry!
Pearls of Wisdom:
"Each of us has the right and the responsibility to assess the road which lie ahead and those over which we have traveled, and if the feature road looms ominous or unpromising, and the road back uninviting-inviting, then we need to gather our resolve and carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction. If the new choice is also unpalatable, without embarrassment, we must be ready to change that one as well." ~Maya Angelou
