I've been trying so hard to make some mosaics out of the pictures I took of the jewelry I've been making! Some of the pictures just did not turn out good. I don't know what I did? Then when I put a mosaic together it was cutting off the pictures and not showing the whole piece of jewelry. After fiddling and fiddling I finally just made this one mosaic with the bracelets I made that the pictures turned out the best. Mosaic Monday is sponsored by Mary @http://dearlittleredhouse.blogspot.com and she has the most beautiful mosaics! And much more experienced mosaic makers have posted their gorgeous mosaics too! So go by and take a look!
About 3 years ago I started making jewelry and decided I would call my "creations" "Butterfly Creations" . Every bracelet and necklace I make has a butterfly on it somewhere. I named it this because I was taking old, vintage pieces of jewelry and making new pieces with them. Not all of my jewelry is made this way but that's how I started.
All of these bracelets are made from vintage brooches except the one on the bottom left hand side. It is made with Swarvoski crystal components. The top left bracelet is made with Swarvoski pearls and Swarvoski crystal rondelles. It is a pull-on stretch bracelet with a beautiful little butterfly charm added. The top right bracelet is one of my favorites. I love the color combination of turquoise, white, cobalt, crystals and gold. It too is a stretch bracelet. The bottom right bracelet is also one of my favorites made with a gorgeous emerald green and aurora borealis brooch, Swarvoski pearls, aurora borealis glass beads and a sterling clasp.
I do sell my jewelry, so if you're interested let me know. I made many more pieces, including several necklace and earring sets. Hopefully I can figure out how to make them work in another mosaic.
