Getting Crafty!

There's something very satisfying about making things; I could literally sit for hours cutting pictures from magazines and sticking them on to a mood board or making greetings cards, but my latest addiction is jewellery! It started with an Alice in Wonderland necklace & ring and I've become a teeny bit obsessed.

To experienced jewellery designers I'm sure these are nothing, after all, essentially all I did is stick something on to something else - hardly taxing, but never the less, I'm still very proud of them. And I didn't stick my fingers together or to the table - yes I am
that clumsy!
These gorgeous charms with peachy pink coloured roses on them make the most perfect little stud earrings to wear in the summer, I adore them! Studs are my favourite type of earring to wear because hoop/disc ones never seem to hang the same on each side - either my piercings aren't equal (very possible, don't get your ears pierced in a hairdressers!) or my ears are wonky (also very possible!). Either way, studs are nice and they don't get tangled up in my hair!
compass ring
I've had this tiny little compass charm for a wee while now and I love it so much so I wanted to put it to good use. My favourite items of jewellery at the moment are rings and so hey presto, my new ring was born! It's quite dainty which I love and the best part is, the little compass actually works too, how cute!
Have you ever made your own jewellery? What do you think of my first attempts?
