Jewelry Challenge - Week 2

This week I did something completely new, I made Hair Jewelry.  Really, that's a fancy way to say barrettes. My friend's daughter is getting married and at the reception she is taking her veil off and wants something to hold her hair in place, so she asked me to come up with something.  I made several pieces of Hair Jewelry for her to choose from.  All of these barrettes can be worn by the bride or her brides maids. I will post the ones that my friend doesn't take to my shop.

Here is a picture of all of them, I also have a picture of each individual barrette below. I made a variety so she could choose or use one as a starting point to make one into exactly what she wanted. She liked the crystal one, far left, and asked me to add a flower. So the flower on the left is a crystal barrette with a flower.

This is the crystal barrette; my sister said it was her favorite and I have to agree, for a gown with all crystals, this would be perfect.

This is the crystal barrette with the flower added, it really looks pretty. I also put a crystal in the center of the flower instead of the pearl that it came with and the little shoots that come off the flower had pearls, so I changed them to crystals.  I used all Swarovski crystals for both barrettes.

 This is my second favorite, I used silver beads that have crystals in the center of each bead.

 Not only would this barrette be good for a bride but also for brides maids.  It's simple yet beautiful.  I can also make it in different colors

Last but not least is the barrette that has pearls with a single flower on it.   See more pictures of all of these barrettes on my website.

Have a good week and I'll see you back here next Saturday for Week 3 of the challenge.
