Did everyone have a good Thanksgiving and stuff yourselves full of good food? I know we did! I have a different sort of post for you today. I have a ridiculous amount of hobbies/interests other than paper crafts so today I wanted to share one of my latest ones - Chainmaille jewelry.
Here are the pieces that started it - Christmas items I am making as gifts.
First up - Christmas trees. I had initially thought I would make these and the wreath below as pendants but Once I made them both I decided they are too big so they will be ornaments. The tree to the left I made to see how a smaller version would look and may still make a few of them as pendants.
And the wreath....
To the right is my attempt at a smaller version of the wreath that could work as a pendant but it is too small to add the little gold bow. I also used the same pattern of rings to make a slightly larger pendant to see how I liked it.
This is the same pattern as the wreath but is a bracelet.
Pezza recently got a very fancy white and blue dress for the holidays and wanted jewelry to go with it so I made these - a bracelet and a pendant.
I had not finished her bracelet yet...
This is a bracelet I will be giving my mom for Christmas.
And finally - matching pendants for me and Pez. I have been having quite a bit of fun working on these. It makes for a nice project to do sitting in front of the TV in the evenings. What do y'all think?
