I'm Lisa from My Pulelehua Inspirations and I am so excited to be a Guest Designer on Alex's Blog, You Had Me At Craft! Thank you so much Alex for this awesome opportunity!
My love of jewelry making came about 5 years ago. I bought a new outfit, but couldn't find the right accessories. That day I went with whatever I had in my jewelry box, not very happy either. Then the search on how to make jewelry began. Let's just say that now no matter what outfit I choose to wear, I ALWAYS have the perfect accessory! Lately, I've been into the vintage look and here's what I've created to share with you.
I've used antiqued metal chains, jump rings, head pins, necklace findings, earring findings and charms from Blue Moon Beads. The paper used for the charms are from Graphic45-Curtain Call to which I applied Glossy Accents over to create a shiny protective seal. The flowers are from I Am Roses and I also used Glossy Accents to adhere it to a 'doughnut' piece attatched to the chain. I added a ribbon from Offray in Oatmeal just to give it a little something extra. The beads were from a mixed bag I got years ago. And to finish it off, I added a butterfly charm to the necklace finding I got from a friend. Why a butterfly? Well, Pulelehua is how you'd say butterfly in Hawaiian and it's part of my blog :)
