Mother’s Day Gifts

Remember the birthday necklaces I made in January and posted last week? Well, I decided to make Mother’s Day gifts for my grandmothers that would go along with them. This time, I made bracelets.

I used the same amethyst chips, some silver wire, and some silver chain. I made five beaded links and connected them together with chains. I once again used a magnetic clasp, because it is one of my new favorite materials to use in jewelry.

I also made some Zentangle cards to send with them. I drew the patterns with a Sharpie pen, and then colored them with Prismacolor markers.

Birthday Necklaces

I completely thought I had posted this before, but apparently I only thought I did. I made these necklaces in January, because both of my grandmothers have birthdays around the end of January.

They also both happen to like purple, so I thought these amethyst chips would be perfect. The shorter one has groups of three with a focal group of five, while the longer one has a focal group of seven surrounded by groups of five and the rest are three.

I think my favorite thing I learned making these was about the magnetic clasp. It is so easy to put on, especially as a bracelet. And it has a super strong hold.

I liked these so much that I made more for my Etsy store. I also made this video with it:
