I am finally getting around to posting my jewelry pics.
I made all this stuff ages ago, but I couldn’t find my camera at the time to take pictures.
I have made jewelry for years and I usually draw ideas from jewelry pieces I see on TV, movies, or in my day-to-day life. A few months ago I saw an episode of “Cougar Town” on TV. I instantly fell in love with the necklace that Courtney Cox’s character wears in nearly every episode (the long one with the little discs). I went online to try to find/buy it. Ha! Well, I found it alright, too bad it costs $3500!
As time went on, the necklace became more and more popular and now it’s easy to find knock-offs, especially on Etsy. Still, I wasn’t willing to pay the $75+ that people were charging for it, so I bought all the supplies (the little circles took me forever to find) and got to it. I also made the gold leaf necklace she wears and I’m thinking about making a replica of her turtle necklace. Basically what I am saying is that the show stinks, but seeing her jewelry alone makes it worth watching!
It was easy to make and so far, the gold-plating is holding up well. In addition to the 44″ circle necklace and the leaf necklace, I made a necklace with organic-shaped circles, two bracelets, and a pair of earrings.
Here is a not-so-flattering pic of me wearing the leaf and circle necklaces:
All together, I probably spent $20 on the supplies, and I still have lots left for future projects.
I even gave some supplies to my pal A. and she made the necklace too!
If you are interested in where I got the stuff needed to make the necklace, check out these Etsy shops (again, the gold discs were tricky to find, but with some work searching, it can be done!):
I have other pieces in the works, so I’ll post those soon as well.
