Creations by Camie

Hello my little petunias.

Click play to hear beautiful music.

A couple of months ago I came across an inspiring post by Amalie on her blog, "What A Beautiful Waste Of Time". She made these DIY rings with just some steel wire; I was so inspired by them I went right out to the local hardware store and bought some steel wire for myself. What I didn't know is she actually got some shiny coated steel wire that you'd typically buy at a craft store. My wire was unfinished and very raw looking, which I didn't mind since it came out very rustic looking. Here is a link to Amalie's original post.

After I made about twenty rings, I graduated to earrings and pendants. Here are a few of my creations. Sorry I currently don't have any pictures of my rings that I started out with but they may come in a later post.

Its a real shame you can't see the true brilliance of the pink earrings in the last picture... I just didnt' have the green background that I was looking for... I just figured this would do.

So what do you think? Have you ever tried making your own jewelry? And also has anyone had any experience with sites like Etsy.com selling their stuff? Would you recommend it?

Talk to you lovelys soon!
