Beading

I prefer to spend my Sundays making crafts. I usually will sew a skirt, blouse or even a two piece outfit. My other favorite way to spend Sunday is to make jewelry. I have made jewelery display hangers that are five feet tall and three feet wide just to accommodate my large collection. (click on the Tag “Hangers”)

This past weekend I discovered I still had a piece my brother Tony made out of clay. HeĀ under-bakedĀ it so it is still flexible and was much lighter than normal clay pendants.

I started making it about three in the afternoon, sorted the beads I thought would work together (I love that I have more than enough beads to work with without having to go out to buy them).

I use the clasps that are larger that are easier for my hands to work with. They are called “T-Clasps” and come in various sizes and in both gold and silver.

I spent a little more than three hours making the necklace and would have normally make the earrings to match at the same time, but I got caught up in organizing the beads and illustrations of other necklace sets I’ve wanted to make.

I think the next set I’ll make is for the dichroic glass piece I made in Ajijic a year ago.
