Make My Week #47 - More Jewellery

The super glue, the pre-bought fixtures, the speed - what's not to love??

This week I used some gorgeous vintage buttons my sister bought me in Europe to make these super sweet earrings.(I used a mini saw to shave off the back loops)

I also used some dahlia flowers in resin (or similar something!!) to make another pair of earrings

and this rather large rose ring.

So long as you can control yourself not to touch them too soon (give them 12 hours) these have to be the easiest fastest craft ever.

I had the inspired idea to use my pincushion to hold the earring stalks in place while they dried - it worked a treat.

Can anyone else believe it is 47 weeks already.... does that mean there are only 5 weeks left of the year?????

Isn't it crazy how fast a year goes?! It always starts slow then speeds up until it's going too fast! I do love these wee accessories you've been making. My favourites are the new red dahlia ones. The ones you wore yesterday were perfect with your outfit!
