I Chose Creating

Sadly, I've been away from home since last week attending a family funeral, so I haven't had much chance to pop online and let everyone that voted for creating, rather than cleaning that I did manage to squeeze in a little bit more crafting before I tidied away my Blue Moon Beads stash. So, how about a quick peek at what I made?


I chose to stick with bronze components (well, they were already covering every available crafting surface.) This pendant is made very simply using Large Rope Rings - which came in a pack with several sizes - and some smaller Bronze Jumprings from the Blue Sky 2013 Collection. Set inside each circle are some faceted acrylic beads from the PB&J Bead Mix, hung simply with Bronze Headpins and a Bronze Jumpring.

Bud Necklace

Another little rummage through the bronze stash uncovered this beautiful, bud-like chain from the Urban Warrior Collection. Each of the little 'buds' is already attached to the chain with teeny, tiny jumprings - so the time consuming, fiddly bit is done for you. All I needed to do was cut my chain into a few different lengths, attach them all to a Bronze Jumpring and add chain! It took no more than ten minutes - and most of that was the rummaging!

So, what's everyone else been up to this week? Have you perhaps been finishing up your Counterfeit Kit? Or maybe you've been starting on Telling Tales? Do let me know.....


  1. wow, those are awesome. I don't even know where to start.

    thank you for your lovely comment on my blog this morning.

  2. Just popping past to see what you're up to. Your necklaces are so pretty. Really something special :)

  3. Gorgeously beautiful work, my friend :)

    Me, I did some more Project Life - loving it, though it's taking longer than I expected, even though I'm trying to keep it super simple!!

    And, um, I may have bought a few new supplies. Possibly due to the influence of a friend...?!

  4. Very pretty and I like that the projects were really easy. Great job.

  5. Beautiful and so simple but they make a big statement. Well done Clair.
