    Default Summer projects

    It's been a while since I posted anything on PG, since I'm trying to restrain myself from buying more pearls and save up my money for the Ruckus :P
    Anyway, I've been making some jewelries to wear for the event, feel free to tell me what you guys think. My craftmanship is still pretty rough so I probably gonna remake some of these.

    Oh my word! The coral pieces in particular are remarkable. Just beautiful, all of it.

    Nothing wrong with your craftsmanship, either.

    Thank you Pearl Dreams! I'm glad that they look fine because the wire knots are pretty clumsily done ( I have weak hands lol).

    You are wonderfully creative! That will be stunning for the ruckus, I'm sure!
    You can never be too dressed-up.

    I love the red thread on the tahitian. I think bold colour choices on pearls add that extra contemporary touch. It is going to look great with the coral earrings.

    May I give some friendly advice? This wrap worries me. Since there is just one loop of thin wire, it can be yanked off which would be a pity. Adding a couple more wraps would make it more secure and it would also coordinate well with the three loops on the other side of the branch as well as the earrings.

    Thank you so much everybody! I cannot wait to see you all too!
    Lady Disdain Thank you and don't worry about it . That part is drilled so all I did was wrapping the wire around the hole so it's pretty secured actually. I was lucky since this coral piece already has 2 drilled holes

    Oh, cool! Great use of the drill holes.

    Those necklaces! I love the one with the coral and the pastel-looking tin cup with the darker pearl hanging from a two-sided chain in particular.
