Jewelry update

This fall, I spent many hours making jewelry as Christmas gifts for various female relatives. Since I had just learned how to make wire jewelry, it took a lot of time and effort. Here are pictures of my finished products:

I made this butterfly necklace for my paternal grandma.

I made a butterfly necklace, earrings to go with it, and a Celtic heart necklace to go with a pair of earrings I'd given previously for my mom.

I made this repeating bead necklace (you are seeing about a third of the bead pattern) for my maternal grandma.

I had to enlarge this picture because of all the jewelry. I made a necklace, earrings, and bracelet for each one of my sisters-in-law and sister. The bracelets were the hardest thing out of all the presents to make, because everyone has different wrist sizes! I even wound up having to add links to one bracelet at the Christmas party. The whole project was a lot of fun, but I don't know if I'll be able to do it again next year!
