A Miscellanea

A good mix of jewellery here.  First, a bit of fun.  Our daughter’s moving this Saturday.  When I saw a set of charms to do with that very subject, well I just had to make this necklace:

Second is another bit of fun – a charm bracelet featuring Noah’s Ark and various animals.  Sadly, the animals are not even to scale with each other.  The bracelet consists of the charms and aventurine chips and smoky quartz nuggets

Sadly, Buttons Galore, the manufacturer, are no longer making these charms.

Thirdly, a piece that hung about for ages until I finished it this week.  Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t show how it sparkles.  It’s a daisy chain necklace made in seed bead.  It’s suited to a girl, being just 16 inches long.

The pattern is in A Treasury of Beaded Jewelry: Bead Stringing Patterns for All Ages by Mary Ellen Harte.

Finally, a simple pair of earrings, each featuring a smoky quartz nugget and a plain oval carnelian:
