My gold sets today. I’ve worked hard on some of these, trying to find what I needed or having to make it instead. So here goes.
My elephant set. The bag bling, earrings and tooth bracelet I made. The tooth and black elephant necklaces came from chain stores, the small gold one from ebay which I added to a chain. The two rings are chain stores goodies, the top bracelet from ebay and the brooch (next to top bracelet) came from a cheap store many, many, many years ago, (I also have a red, and a white elephant brooch as well).
My flower set. The top black bracelet came from ebay, but it’s from the same chain store as everything else. I added the beads to the earrings.
My sun set. Now I know these are similar to the House of Harlow jewellery but it’s hard to fork out massive amounts of money for something that’s made in China when you can get replicas in chain stores or on ebay for so much cheaper. The two necklaces and small ring came from ebay. The large ring I got last week for $3 from the clothing shop having a sale. The earrings I couldn’t find so I bought two necklaces and turned them into earrings.
I’ve always been a fan of cameos. And elephants. I like how you go the distance to create themed sets of jewelry, tweaking purchased pieces to make them your own.
Even though I have a jewellery chain store at my local shopping centre, and 5 more at my next local shopping centre, they never have what I exactly want or need.
So what do you do except find it on ebay, or buy the findings to make it! Then it’s one of a kind and unusual and NO ONE else has it!!!!!
