Almost There...

Way back in May I was picked for a bloggy pay-it-forward. Way back in August I finally picked my own pay-it-forward people. Way back in September I finally figured out what to make them. Way back to last night I finally finished what I was making them. At this rate I might actually get these delivered by next year. Does anyone know how best to mail jewelry and where to find the materials to ship them in? I would greatly appreciate the info as I have never mailed jewelry before. Thanks. Jewelry making is fun, but it makes my back hurt, bending over those tiny beads. All of these contain repurposed beads or buttons in their making, you know, 'cause I'm green and recycle, and am going to heaven for it.

Fallfleur, these are for you.


Becky, I know you like red, I just hope you don't hate turquoise.



Michal, I gave up some of my preciously hoarded buttons for this.

Hope you like it.


P.S. Photographing jewelry is HARD. I had to take like 20 pics before I got these, and they still aren't that great. But see how professional I was laying them on props with the pretty fabric background?

I usually ship my jewelry wrapped in tissue & in a bubble-envelope. If someone says there's a better way... do let me know!

Wow! You are quite the talented Ice cream eater! The jewelry is lovely and the photos are very thoughtfully taken. :)

That is one I have not heard of in the bloggy world. Pay-it-forward...cool!
Those are so awesome. I must say, I am somewhat jealous of those ladies!

Pretty! Don't feel too bad about taking a long time. I got picked for one even before you did yours and I am still knitting on my last project. I just can't make myself finish that one last project right now.

Lucky ladies...these are gorgeous!! You have an award wating for you on my blog from last week...:-)

Rachel said...

I was actually thinking that exact thing... look how nice that she cared to put the jewelry in with props and pretty backgrounds!

And I see why you hoard the buttons... I love the third set (but I'm a GREEN girl... green with envy now!)

Those are beautiful!

Your talents never cease to amaze me! I love the Fallfleur blue earrings.

Wow!!! :) Beautiful! I'm impressed. You are quite the artist. :) Love those props too. Very professional indeed.

Thank you, Miss Lady.

Michal said...
