The Jewelry Maker?

Well, I tried my hand at some jewelry making and it is harder than it looks with all those tiny little beads and precise measurements. Yes, sewing obviously involves lots off measuring, but if you are a millimeter or two off on a seam no one will ever notice. If one earring is a millimeter or two longer than the other it is much more noticeable.

I used some vintage beads from here and some others I had lying around. My favorite pair: the lemon drops on top.

No more earrings for awhile. Last night I returned the pliers from my sewing room to its rightful home in the basement workshop.

I agree with you Kim, I really like the lemon drops, kind of a change of pace from sewing,huh? It's good to try different things.
Have fun,
