I made these two bracelets last weekend for a friend who had seen my bracelet at church and wanted one for herself and her sister. There are many duplicates. I made earrings into charms, added glitter glue for missing stones, altered pins, turned posts into hooks--an all-in-all 4-hour span of time. I think they turned out ok and you can't see too many faults from this angle. I enjoyed doing this and have started making "dangles" for earrings and bookmarks now. I'll show pictures later if I don't forget to take them before they leave my house to be sold (I hope.) Jewelry has been around for a long time--since way before Bible days. We girls just like to be pretty.
Numbers 31:50--"So we have brought as an offering to the LORD the gold articles each of us acquired—armlets, bracelets, signet rings, earrings and necklaces—to make atonement for ourselves before the Lord."
