This months challenge at Bubbly Scrumptious is to make a piece of JEWELLERY. It can be anything you like and made in any way you like!!!
Anyone who has been following my blog will know just how much I loved the K&Co Wild Saffron papers and elements. In the Bubbly Funk Kit, we got four brads and even though I have pretty much used up everything else (not quite though) I still had the brads because I couldn't bear to use them on a card and give it away! So this is my solution - create earrings from them. These were my two favourites, I simply cut off the prongs and used silicon glue to glue them onto a pair of flat earrings that I never wear now, you could buy proper earring bases, but these worked in just the same way.
I also wanted to show you two 'cuffs' that I have made. These are made using my embellisher machine, which is an easier way to needlefelt. The base of the cuff is organza and I used the machine to felt merino wool fibre into the chiffon and then added some silk fibres over the top.
This blue one also had thick embroidery threads embellished onto it and some bugle beads sewn in.
