Winter has most certainly arrived. I’ve been enjoying time in my cozy studio, reflecting today on some projects I’ve been working on over the last few weeks. I love creating projects for my 4th grade jewelry club – 45 girls learning some fun jewelry basics.
This club started last year as a way to combat the bullying of one of my special education students and has grown to include almost all the girls in the 4th grade. We hang out, make jewelry, and develop positive friendships.
The call came in from A Gilded Life for a few projects to be used at the Winter 2015 CHA event in L.A. Inspired by the January project necklace for Jewelry Club, I created this beauty using some of the new product line for Spellbinders/A Gilded Life, sort of a grown up version, yes?
I was gifted with a couple of vintage bolo ties at Christmas that had seen better days. Playing around with them this past week, I created a couple of cute bracelets.
I am thinking that they will look awesome stacked a rhinestone wrap bracelet and perhaps a few vintage Native American silver and turquoise cuffs!
Hope you are all staying warm and enjoying some creative time as well!
