Joanna Gollberg Class

I took a class with Joanna Gollberg. I learned a lot. Here’s some things I made in class.

Earrings

Earrings. I added the bows to cover up the jump rings since I made one in class and the other at home, I used different size jump rings. Oops.

ProngSetStone

Little pendant so I could try the double decker setting.

 

RingDrusy ring. Sorry about the blurriness. Couldn’t get a good picture.

A Few More Earrings

Okay, it’s three pairs. That’s all I got done today.

PurpleDropEarrings FlowerEarrings PurpleGlassEarringsI used some glass beads that I made for these. It’s tough making two beads the same. Tried my best.

Still On An Earring Kick

I’m kind of liking making earrings. Even though I have to make two the same, it’s not that bad. Would be easier if I drew out the designs prior to making the first one but when I start out, I’m not sure what I’m making until the first earring is done.

 

PinkQuartzDangle

Hammered with a simple curl and a pink quartz bead.

Hearts

These heart earrings will hang slanted. CrystalEarrings

Some kind of quartz square beads and some green stone beads that I had laying around.

HoopEtchedBeadEarringsAnother set of hoops with etched glass beads and some brass and nickel spacers.

I decided to take a picture of each pair of earring right after I make them. Trying to hang them and take a picture didn’t work. I think these are better.

Earrings – Yes Earrings

I don’t usually make earrings. There’s something about making the exact same thing twice that I just don’t like. I don’t mind similar but most people want earrings to match. I’ve done my best here even though these are the crappiest pictures I’ve taken in a while. BiwaPearlEarrings

I had to retake this picture, it was so bad. I love Biwa pearls. Hopefully other people do too.

Button

I bought these mother of pearl buttons a while ago. Never knew what to do with them. A few jump rings and a little round gemstone bead works well with the buttons, don’t you think?

RockEarrings RockEarrings2

These are hard to see. They are drilled river rocks. I tried to match them up as well as I could. And by this time, I got tired of making the same earring so I did the wires all different on these.

Pearl-MiscEarrings

More round pearl – it’s hard to tell those are pearls and another set that I made round earrings and threaded some beads onto it. Easy peasy.

ClipCharms3

Also, some clip charms that never got posted.

More Earrings And A Bracelet

I got several pieces enameled and used them for these earrings:

And still making tiny beads except not a pair of them. Just a random set of small beads. I made this bracelet out of some of them. I didn’t realize it would look so Halloween-y.

I was hoping it would be more red but not really dark red. Oh well….

New Pair Of Earrings

I finally got these done today. I had issues because the wire I used to attach the enameled pieces to the chain was a bit too thick. I’ll try them again (maybe) with thinner wire.

They are a dark red, it’s hard to tell. They dangle about  2 inches.

Enameled Earrings

I enameled these two disks last night and quickly threw these earrings together. I think they turned out kind of cute. The picture is deceiving. They are really tiny and petite.
