Jewelry on My Mind

Hi, everyone. I just want to share what I'm up to over at the little Etsy shop: Simply Cynful Jewelry by Cynthia

I've been practicing and getting better at the whole jewelry-making thing. I made a couple pairs of earrings today that I just love!

I've made several necklaces. Here's the latest one:

I stamped my children's names on a copper circle, then hammered the copper for texture. I added a Swarovski crystal heart in each of their birthstone colors.

Here's one I made for a  mommy who has just had her second child. It doesn't show well, but I stamped the small silver heart with a baby's feet design, then stamped her children's names on the circles:

This is a fun necklace with an initial and a Swarovski heart birthstone. I made another one for Alyssa that had two letters and two hearts for her two children.

What's coming up? I've got a couple different I.D. bracelet ideas and a Grandma necklace for myself. I can't wait to get them done.

So that's what's keeping me busy. Oh, yeah, and Christmas shopping. Not everyone is getting jewelry. Teaching is still filling my days. The kids are just as whacky as ever.

I promised reader Lisa, that I'd write about the difference between accept and except. That post will be finished tomorrow for Wicked English Teacher Wednesday.

So what's keeping you busy these days?
