I love to take apart and re-make my jewelry. I love jewelry with stones like these earrings from Peru.
Every now and then I get a strong yearning to make jewelry. I will often re-make jewelry that is not working for me, or I will order some pieces on ebay to make new jewelry with. I had a week in May where I spent all my free minutes/hours in my room, making jewelry.
These are my tools. The cuticle cutter is my main tool and the pliers are helpers.
These are the little pieces I use in making new items.
Extra beads, hooks, etc
I hold this tray, which is the lid to the above storage box, on my lap with the items I'm working on.
Here is a sample of items I was working on.
I ended up taking out just about all my earrings and pendants to see what I have, what I like and what I'd like to change. This storage bench was out of commission for that week!
Here is one of the new earrings I made. I love these teal hearts that I bought on ebay.
