Turquoise Jewelry

I made some more jewelry as I mentioned earlier, for the Give month coming up. The common theme turned out to be Turquoise. It was not planned though, but the Turquoise caught my eye this time around and I could not help but get some of those beads home. I debated for a while, should I really invest so much, as these ones were expensive. Actually all the beads I get are from a local bead store that ensures quality.  I try to pick different colors as I do like to have some variety but sometimes after I come home, I realize that some of the colors I picked are pretty close. :) It's funny how your mind thinks, isn't it?

One other thing I realized is that I do like vintage jewelry, like big earrings etc. You saw some in my earlier post and I have added few more to that list. Without much further ado, here is some of the jewelry. More jewelry is in the making but whichever is done, I took pictures to upload.

September Cards

Here are some cards I made this month. Some of the techniques used are dry embossing, embossing with embossing powder and emboss resist. The paper used is from Stamping Up and so are the stamps, as I made these cards at the card making meetup hosted by Stamping up demonstrator.

For embossing, used Versamark embossing ink and clear, white and black embossing powders. Besides that used Stampign Up embossing folders, framelits, ribbons, etc. Made a mix of Birthday cards, Thank You cards and a Halloween card too.
