Have I Mentioned……?

Good Morning Xangaland!


Have I mentioned that every third Thursday all the ladies in my prayer group get together and we make jewelry?  I know I know on top of everything else I do….  But it’s so much fun and the stuff that has come out of it…..


I just thought that since today is yet another busy day for me….(when isn’t it anymore) that I would share some pictures with you guys for the weekend.


I apologize that a few of them are blurry but jewelry is very hard to photograph…. so annoying!  LOL


This is the one I made my first time…It’s real turquoise and stone beads…. This is probably the reason I’ve never mentioned it… I have only worn it once since I made it with nothing in my wardrobe in mind and then low and behold it matched nothing.  But pretty is pretty right?


 


This was my first of last night…. A pretty multi color that I can wear with anything…..Not going to make the same mistake twice.


 


This next one is a pretty green and gold one with little leaves hanging down.  I saw the little bobbles and just couldn’t resist.


 


This next is a set or as my Aunt Lee calls it, a suite.  I will be making the earrings to match it the next time around.  This is made of filigree silver beads and believe it or not my husbands great grandmothers’ pearls.  They aren’t real but they are good fakes!  My mother in law had them in her case and when I expressed an interest she said to go ahead and use them… So I made a bracelet and when everyone saw how pretty it turned out I was encouraged to make a necklace.  I love them and can’t wait to put together some earrings!

Well there you have it… That is what our Thursday night ladies meetings are made of.  The things a woman needs in life, talk, pie, and pretty things!


Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
