Shabby Little Jewelry Holder


Hello and Happy Friday!! WootWoot:)


I have the winner of the Simple Daisy Ring give-away.....
Yeah for her!!! Be sure and stop by her blog.....The Hairy Peach to say congrats:)




I can't wait to see which ring she picks for herself!!!!


I've been really enjoy creating rings and can't wait to tinker on a few ideas i've had swirling around in my head!!
There really isn't enough time in the day to do all of the things I day dream about:)


For awhile i've been wanting to teach myself how to make my own stamps using my drawings....


Because I love to doodle and I thought they might work on my jewelry designs:)




The stamps turned out so cute!!!! I love them! But I think they are a bit too bit for using with the silver and bronze clay.






This is how the clay looks before I fire it in the kiln! I think the owl is just so darn cute but it's pretty large for a pendant. And I LOVE the horse....and planned on writing......fences are made for those who can't fly.....
but I want to perfect the horse just a bit!


It's so fun just tinkering around teaching myself new things!


My studio is quickly becoming overgrown with jewelry!
And well...plants too:)


But it's my happy space! It's usually quite messy with drawings, doodles and quotes laying around everywhere!




I try to organize.....but it never lasts!
See that driftwood jewelry stand.....I made those awhile ago and love them!


But I needed a way to organize my jewelry on the wall....so that it takes up less counter space.


Here's what I came up with just using what I had lying around!


Sorry for the not so great photos....i'm a little under the weather and just wasn't up for taking a million photos to get nice ones:)




Simple & Cute!
Plus....you can use whatever you happen to have on hand to make your own!!!


And the best part....it can hold a ton of jewelry!!
Ok...well...sure hope you have yourself a wonderful and creative weekend!!!!

  8. I agree with Rose. It's really neat that you can do that. We all want to see close up pictures of the rings you've been working on. That would be really cool.
