Happy Easter Everyone!

Tomorrow is the last day of our jewelry design class and i'm really sad.  But have to move on I guess and put what I learned into practice.  I've been busy making Easter jewelry for some folks(I know there's no such thing as Easter jewelry).  Anyway here they are:

I made this one for my bestie.  Got the pre-made chain from Michael's last year.  The copper cross is a vintage piece I picked up at an antique mall and I had the red briollettes for awhile.

Here's the back:    

I got the reproduction medal from a seller on ebay.

Then there's this one I made for my mother.  It's made of faceted garnets(her birthstone), a vintage rhinestone button and a silver toned cross that I darkened with Novocan Black to give it some contrast to the blingy button.

Here's the back :

I fancied it up with a rhinestone clasp i've had since 2000 and of course another religious medal (I am now obsessed with these things).

Then I made these earrings for myself.  I found these really old mother of pearl connectors and some eighties looking earrings with some beautiful marcasite-looking crosses hanging from them.  I took them apart and decided to put the MOP and the crosses together with red crystals.  They turned out really pretty if I must say so myself.

So there you have it.  I'm really excited to see what other creations I come up with due to the stuff i've learned.  I love learning new things.  It gets my mind going and thinking.  Well, i'm off to Facebook with my other classmates for the last time.  It's been fun!!

As always comments are appreciated.

Happy Easter!!!!
