I pick up hobbies the way a junkie picks up new track marks. Seriously. It's like CRACK for me.
As a bonus, my new hobby is also very self-serving for me.
I adore jewelry, however, for the last 3 years I have been working for an area of the company that I am not allowed to wear jewelry. It's been so bad, two (out of 8) of my earring holes have closed up...and I can't even go get them re-pierced since I can't wear the earrings long enough to have the holes last.
However, starting September 13, I will be working in a facility that actually allows me to wear jewelry. Unfortunately, I haven't really been keeping up with the purchasing of necklaces or earring since I couldn't wear them for so long.
So I've recently started making them for myself instead.
However, I LOVE the colors and the pendant and pretty much EVERYTHING about the necklace even if it is pretty simple. The one on the right was initially for my mom, but she ended up taking a different necklace as a birthday gift, so I still have it.
This was my first wire necklace and I actually think it's very pretty looking. However, it kind of sucks to wear because it has a bunch of sharp edges from where I suck at cutting the wires. I'm working on fixing that.
