My attempts at jewelry making ...

Last weekend I had been to jewelry making classes with a close friend of mine - Never before I had been interested in jewelry making but I must admit that it was a lot of fun and we both totally loved it.. !!  We had spend hours discussing on doing something useful during the weekend and even though both of us never had a thought about joining the jewelry making class, we zeroed upon the same because of the short duration and mainly the timings...!!! When I learnt some Western techniques like stringing, looping , wire wrapping etc., my friend tried her hands on  bridal jewellery - and the pieces have turned out better than we expected  ;-) ... ofcourse, with the help of the patient instructor.. !!!

Wire wrapping technique : Done at the jewelry class. 
Done with faux cat eye beads using Knotting technique. 
This was the first piece done by me at the jewelry class. 
Matching Earrings for the chain ... 
A chain done using wooden beads - **bling** ..!! 

 These are the pieces that I tried making on my own..!! 

So, which piece is to your liking - Waiting to hear your comments ;-) ;-) ....!!!

I am linking this post to the Weekend Wrap Up Party at Colours Dekor , the talent tuesday party , I made this tuesday ,  and the blog parties here, here and here.
