Earrings used to be my must have, do not go without accessory but that changed to bracelets some time ago. I especially love custom and hand made jewelry so when I heard about the Arm Party I was all over it.
The hosts of the fabulous exchange are:
Leonora of Yellow Heart Art and Ilene of Much Love, Illy
I usually just make things on a whim, I dig around in my supplies, searching for things that I find to meet the crazy vision that has randomly popped into my head. This usually steers me way off coarse and leads to under production of things that should happen but to the production of fabulous jewelry.
To design my Arm Party bracelet for Janeen my exchange partner I did not veer to far of my usual creative course. I did check her blog out to troll for ideas and thanks to the Arm Parties handy, dandy, little google doc, I had an email telling me what colors she was in to. I made her two bracelets, one using vintage buttons and the other using tee shirt scraps. Go check Wild Vanilla Designs to see her reveal of the goods I mailed for the Arm Party.
The bracelet I received from Janeen was crafted for me with thought. She went through my blog and totally "got me". She inclosed a sweet note card and my bracelet was tucked in a pretty little bag. The clasp is my favorite part and I am obsessed with it. The purple wire is killer. Her work is very detailed and done flawlessly. Here it is...
How about a front shot...
I am a pleased party par taker. I love the look of three in one. The metal is beautiful and does not irritate my skin. The colors are the business! Looking forward to seeing other designs in the Arm Party link up.
Anyone have a favorite, unconventional, material they like to use when creating jewelry? I love to repurpose so unconventional material is usually the method to my madness. Designs for jewelry is not my specialty, it is my favorite hobby. My craft is being a Makeup Artist and licensed Esthetician, the premise of this place is sharing tips, beauty DIY's and skin care info. Please stick around and poke through some posts! XOXO
I will be back later today with my usual Tip Off Tuesday!
