Casey did a post on her blog a couple of weeks back that covered how to make mini jewelry. She used brass beading wire and very tiny beads and also included a sketch to show how to put everything together. Check out her blog if you want more details. Now I'd like to share the jewelry that I made using Casey's expert advice.
I used silver beading wire as I'm not much of a fan of the gold look. As per Casey's instructions you really do use quite a bit of wire. The necklase took almost every bit of 8 inches and the earrings are 2 inches each. The beads were leftover from years ago when I was into beaded jewelry. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the beads have some really lovely colors. I'm eager to try this again with some different colors and also different style beads.
Now I would like to find an easy tutorial for a jewelry box. If anyone out there in blogland has one that they would like to share please send it my way!
