Handmade jewelry.


What's up? I have big news: I have finished my part of the Spanish Criminal Code edition. Thus, this band weekend (starting today when I'm off work) will be my first free weekend since May. My. Gosh. 
I  am excited. 

Anyhow, today's a bit off-topic... I just wanted to show off two pieces of jewelry I made a while back.

The first one is a pair of earrings (clip-on):
I fell in love with those cabochons, so I bidded for a pack of ten and won it for  1. After that, I bidded for 10 pairs of clip-on round findings. Costed me 2. 
So, a total cost of 3 for that pair of earrings, with tons of spare stuff.

Second in line: blue polish ring. 
For this one, I bought a pack of ten clear cabochons for €2, and five ring settings for 2. I love me some eBay.
This is made with one coat of Kiko nº 270 (hex glitter) and two coats of China Glaze First Mate. Voilà! 

Now I have to confess when I discovered the world of handmade jewelry I totally pillaged eBay. Then I received eleven packages in a row at work, and kept looking at my secretary with an innocent face when she repeated "you'll have to tell me what's in there, someday". But I am afraid she won't respect me anymore if I tell her, hee hee!

So expect to see more of this now that I'll have FREE TIME! (evil laugh)

  1. Oh you should tell her! You'll probably end up making jewelry for all your staff! LOL! Your jewelry is beautiful!! Love both pieces. I use to make jewelry too, but I have so many hobbies, it kind of fell to the wayside.

  2. Yay for your first free weekend! You go enjoy yourself, girl! :-)
    The jewelry pieces are so pretty! It's amazing that you made them yourself. I especially love the ring! :D
