Following on from last weeks Designer Inspired blog post I’m continuing with the gorgeous pieces I’ve recently made or recreated.
This week it’s Emerald Lights. A rich and sparkly emerald druzy crystal hanging from a gold multi chain necklace. It was easy enough to make. I bought the druzy crystal off eBay for $23 and made the chain necklace from my own kit. I happened to have a gold tone necklace already and just added the extra hanging chain to it.
To me, the prices put on “high end” designer costume jewellery can seem so high, so if I can make it myself, then I do. With eBay, Etsy and other craft stores to buy goods from, it’s easy enough to do so.
We are all designers when we make jewellery, and for me, making pieces, or finding pieces, that are a similar style to the high priced ones I wanted is far better for me financially, and it means I have my own piece, especially if I made it.
Can you tell the difference?
