Anyone who has followed me for a while knows that I love Valentine's Day. I've loved it since I was a child. It's a beautiful, bright red day in the middle of winter! It comes along just when the serene palette of winter has grown old. When a burst of red and frilly things seems perfect!
I made several tags this year, the one above it one of my favorites. I also made some jewelry last year which I never shared. So, I thought I would do that now.
Here is a necklace I made a few years ago, didn't like and remade last year.
I love soldering charms even though I don't do a lot of it. But, I love vintage images and I love making them into charms to use as pendants or Christmas tree ornaments. I have several ornaments and I've made some pendants. Originally I had strung this on a velvet ribbon. I didn't like the way it hung on the ribbon so I decided to do something else with it. The necklace you see is the result. I even took some of the ribbon and tied it to the chain. It was such a pretty red velvet that I still wanted it as part of the design. After remaking the necklace I decided to jump on the bandwagon that is the wrap bracelet. I really like wrap bracelets but I hadn't made one. Then, last year I saw this great button on the Fusion Beads site. So, I decided to use it to make a wrap bracelet. Actually, I made two, one for me and one for my daughter.
And, here's that cute button!
Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
