Making Vintage Jewelry

 
 
 
 
My favourite escape from crochet is to indulge in a craft project - usually making jewelry and accessories involving beads or fabric. This time I chose to play with some lovely beads I've had for some time.


Make vintage jewelry
 The inspiration for both necklaces are the 1920s / 1930s which, when it comes to jewelry, is my all time favourite period.


I am going to start  a long -term series here on the blog called "Make Jewelry" where we (that's me and Eva and all of you) will make all sorts of jewelry, explore and share ideas, try out techniques and methods and generally have loads of fun and be fashionable :)

Many people like to make their own jewellery. Yours has something special and unique. :-)
