Hi there lovely readers!  Well, my break from blogging is finally over, I think the majority of our out of town trips are through.  We did have a great summer!  I was reading the Rings and Things blog this morning and they were talking about PINTREST.  I am a HUGE fan of Pintrest and I was wondering if it's just me, or is it awesome?  Most of my Pins are craft and jewelry making patterns, oh, and lots of crochet patterns too!  I would be happy to share with anyone who wants to take a gander, there are thousands and thousands of Pins on my boards, so fair warning, you may get lost for the day in Pintrest land!  Its a great place to get ideas and waste some time, lots of time...I also wanted to share a bracelet and earring set that I made that was perfect for spring, summer too!  Sorry there is no tutorial, but I will explain what I did, it was pretty simple, so you can make one too!  Read on for some jewelry making goodness!

Here we go!

The Bracelet:

The Earrings:


To make them I simply used a pre-fab silver bracelet, some Czech glass Leaves, a large silver leaf (Blue Moon I think), Earring Posts, and a small bit of chain and jump rings.  I also added some little purple Lucite flowers for a bit of contrast.

I think you can figure out from here what I did, but I just attached the leaves and flowers with the jump rings (size 6mm).  Then I attached the silver leaf in the middle.  I like the weight of this bracelet on my wrist.

For the earrings I cut 2 small pieces of chain and attached leaves to them.  Then I attached the leaves to 2 earring posts.  Done!  If you have any questions give me a shout and I will try to help!

Lastly, Pintrest requires that you receive an invitation to join, so if there is anyone who wants to open a Pintrest account that doesn't have one yet, I will be happy to send you an invite.  Just send me a note!

Happy Summering everyone!  Its too hot out there so stay in and make something creative today!
Love and hugs!
