This past year or so, the girls and I have been experimenting with jewelry making during our weekly crafty play day sessions. We taught ourselves basic wire-wrapping and beading, and I even went so far as to try my hand at making my own closures and clasps. In March, we took a road trip to my favorite beading store and took a class on silk knotting techniques. SO much fun! I truly love it all! Unfortunately my heavy work schedule this spring has left little time for crafting. But I’m finally, happily back to part-time, and yesterday, the girls and I broke out our gems and jewels for a little crafty fun. Perfect opportunity to re-unite with my poor neglected Tim Holtz Assemblage supplies.
I’m calling this my 265 Lucky Clover necklace, named for the charms I used here. And I must say, this piece truly fits my eclectic style with its mixed metals, assortment of various charms and chains, and asymmetrical design. So shabby chic, don’t you think?
I just love how unique each Assemblage finding is. Truly like a mini piece of art. And so easy to work with, too. Everything you need to make jewelry is included in this collection, from toggles and clasps to chains and charms. All you need to do is piece it together.
