Since I was sick so often this month, I really wasn’t able to concentrate well enough to do much stitching or knitting. But, on my good days, I did find some time to do a few crafty things.

With some help from my mom (e.g. she did all of the wire wrapping for me), I made these cute heart earrings. They are from the kit Loopy 4 You Earrings from Art Beads. And, other than the wire wrapping (which I will learn one day!), they were super simple to put together. I did switch out the hooks for silver lever backs.

I also made a couple of pairs of chain maille earrings. The come from the book Creative Chain Mail Jewelry. These were super simple projects, and I used basic aluminum rings and silver hooks (to be good to my ears). I’ve also been playing around with some of the other designs in the book, but before I go to far with them, I’d like to get some beads and bracelet clasps.

Smalls SAL: Don’t forget, tomorrow is Smalls check-in day! I can’t wait to see what you have stitched.

    I love the loopy 4 you earrings. Good idea on the switching out the hook, this way at least you won’t lose them while wearing them.

    They’re beautiful, Heather 🙂 I’m sorry you were sick but glad you still felt well enough for some creativity.

    Pretty! I really like the chain maille ones…I keep thinking I should learn to make some chain maille pretties, but then I remember that 1)I have no time and 2) I get easily frustrated with detailed work….
