The fun of a new challenge

First projects done
So here is what I ended up getting completed yesterday.  The earrings were the first projects that I completed as I wanted to start with something small and see if I could do it without too much help.

A first bracelet
My challenge is my hands somethings don't like holding tools so I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to even make any jewellery.

The bracelet I am making is using split rings so it means a lot of opening and closing of the rings.  When I ended my jewellery making for Sunday, I had completed just over half of the bracelet.  Considering it took a lot of figuring out at first I am happy with what I accomplished.

Bracelet on wrist but not finished yet
I am determined that I am going to be getting this bracelet done soon so that I can start wearing it.  I have already figured out ways to improve the next one I make and it will be using gold split rings.

Now that I have started making some simple jewellery I am feeling a lot better about the entire process.  I know that there is going to be things that I have problems with but at least I have overcome one of my challenges.  The jewellery making has renewed my spark in crafting so will see what else I end up figuring out.

I proved to myself that I could actually make some jewellery and I will be wearing it soon.
