June and July are my favorite months. Our label business slows down a bit and I have time to breathe and be creative. Here are a few of the projects I have been working on.
I have had my eye on some crocheted wire jewelry kits from Yoola design for a while. I finally purchased one and I am addicted. She uses a technique called ISK (Invisible Spool Knitting). It reminds me of the spool knitting I did when I was a kid except you use a crochet hook and the technique is brilliant. It does take some practice but by the 3rd bracelet my stitches were coming out even. It’s very relaxing and portable so I can take it anywhere and work on it. It’s a great summertime hobby.
This is the first bracelet which I made for a graduation gift.
It’s made from silver filled wire and I purchased the charm from Amazon.
This necklace is also made from silver filled wire. After my mother passed away, I was going through her jewelry and found my favorite earrings except one was missing. I looked everywhere but never found it. I added the single earring as a charm to this necklace and cre ated heirloom keepsake.
This is my third bracelet and I am keeping it for myself.
