First Day…

So today was the first day since getting 95% of my materials, that I could actually make something with them. I was hesitant at first, but then I realized that it’s my first time ever really making any jewelry besides earrings. So I just dove right in. I have an array of colorful beads to choose from to make simple jewelry (ie. bracelets and necklaces) that have that pop that I’m looking for.
I know that it’s going to take me a few tries to get the hang of it when it comes to the wire. I decided to start off making a bracelet with the silver wire because I do not have all of my gold materials yet. I picked the pearl round beads in a size 8 and the 4mm aqua green czech glass beads. You will notice that in the picture I posted below doesn’t look like its aqua green, but it is. That’s just what you get for taking a picture in artificial light. I will post a better looking photo in the next post for you all to see exactly what the colors look like.
I am very happy with the end result. Being the fact that it was my first time making a bracelet. It came out exactly as I pictured it in my head. Very simple bracelet that can also look great layered.

Here’s some photo’s of the materials I am working with to make these simple yet gorgeous beaded jewelry items and the photo of the very first sample bracelet I have made.

All of the jewelry items that I will be making are all going to be made to order so that if needed be it can be customized to just the size you need it to be.  My goal is to have enough items by Thanksgiving time, so check back on my shop (etsy.com/shop/modospira) for a look on the items available for purchase. By the way, the jewelry items that are coming soon would make great Christmas gifts for that special woman in your life. (hint, hint)

Hope whoever is reading this has a phenomenal day! 🙂

Pin-Up Art

So I figured I would start my 2nd post with the thing that got me started with creating my own online shop. The only thing that came to mind that I am quite good at is art. I graduated college with a fine arts degree so being all artsy and creative is something that is sort of easy for me.  I came up with an idea of doing a set of prints. Not knowing what my idea was going to be at the time, I decided to play around with different things. The one thing popped into my head that really stuck was pin-up girls.  I thought that they would be a fun thing to create a series of prints with. Each print took many days to complete. I did a total of 5 prints in the series. Each pin-up girl is very different from the next. Here’s the pin-up girl series.

I had these prints up for sale on my shop, but sadly not a single one was sold. Maybe someday in the future I will put these back up for sale. I have had many compliments on them and I’m sure you will think these are really cool prints too.
