Note: My mom won't see this post... no worries.
My mom specifically requested I make her jewelry for Mother's Day. Unfortunately, she gave no directions as to colors, materials, or even types. All she added when pressed for information was: "You know what I like". Well, we'll see about that.
Two of my mom's favorite colors are pink and lavender. This bracelet, like most I make, contains stretch cord. The pink beads are stone.
These feather earrings are simple. They are just eye pins with a jump ring to attach the charms and the clips to go on the ears. I use clips instead of hooks or posts because they're easier for my mom to wear right now.
I'm actually not sure about this set. I think the copper, faux pearls, and glass beads look "dressy". However, I'm uncertain if she will like them. Every bead used here came from an artist who is a friend of mine.
The winning gift (I hope)! My mom had a pair of crystal angel earrings I made her a few years ago that she gave away to a sweet stranger. She absolutely loved them and mentions them on occasion. I found just enough supplies in the bottom of one of my boxes for another pair.
What do you think? Which piece is your favorite?
