Rustic Elegance Bracelet and Earrings Set

Welcome to my blog! I’m so glad you came by to see what I made for this year’s Bead Hoarders Blog Hop! My generous partner Terri sent me a lovely bead she had hoarded and some pieces she made.

With her permission, I decided to use one of the beautiful pieces she made for the bracelet and two beautiful drops for the earrings. Isn’t the ceramic roses bracelet piece lovely? I added it to some sari silk in gold. I wrapped it twice, once with the roses piece along with a couple of crystals and next with a piece of chain sewn to the silk. From the chain hangs some antique bronze/gold findings and some more crystals. I wear it so the dangles hang down over my hand. I added the charm to help weigh down the clasp so the bracelet doesn’t flip upside down. Its fun to add a little something extra anyway.

The earrings are pretty simple but I love the simplicity of them. I don’t post jewelry very often but if you are interested in seeing the odd piece and some lovely cards I make on a regular basis, please subscribe! If you like what you see, let me know!

Enjoy, Rebecca

I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.

  1. How romantic and elegant your pieces are. They're both very, very pretty, and there is a Downton Abbey vibe to them. You did a great job. I particularly love the rose focal on the bracelet – your choice of design makes it stand out in the best possible way.

  2. I like both pieces and they “look like you.” People have got to stop apologizing for something being “simple.” They are lovely. We all string…which is putting things on a string. We all use jumprings to connect things. Your sense of style is what we want to see and you come through on these pieces.

  3. What a fun combination of components in those delicate earrings! And I just love the use of the sari silk in the bracelet. The ceramic roses would have thrown me, but you used them beautifully. Looks like a very fun bracelet to wear!
