J is for Jewels!

What a week! I've had no time to make any cards what with Em's prom...I was still doing the hem on the day! And then it was Henley! So as you will see I was over the moon that this week's alphabet challenge was "J is for Jewels"....and best of all this didn't necessarily mean on cards!

This is Em just before we left for the prom. We decided that she needed straps and as a compromise she agreed to a halterneck made of pearls. I also couched a string of tiny pearls on the bottom edge of the drape over her bust.....I also made her a bracelet of three stands of pearls to match the pearls on her dress
The prom was last Wednesday, then on Thursday we took Em and her friend Kate to Henley. It was the first time Em had been able to come...she had a great time and wants to come again next year. By Friday she was exhausted! This is Em and Kate in Stewards. Henley is a great excuse for some new jewellery! Kate wanted a bracelet and ear rings to match her dress so I got my beads out. Her bracelet was made by crocheting with fine wire. I threaded various blue beads onto the wire before crocheting....similar to my altered yeast tin in an earlier post.

My final jewelled piece for the challenge is a pearl necklace, bracelet and ear rings that I made for me to wear at Henley...I bought the beads at the NEC earlier this year, all the findings are sterling silver.

Emma looked stunning for her prom and well done you!!!!! I'm sure she was thrilled with your creations for her.

I went to Henley a few years ago when my sister in law was living there - loved it!

Love the blue jewellery!
