Birthday Gift For My Mum-in Law

Good Morning Friends,
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I thought I would show you the jewellery I made for my lovely Mum-in Law's birthday earlier this year.
It is made from Aquamarine and genuine pearls, some rose gold beads, chain and earring findings.  I then made the box from Centura Pearl Card and some silky crush ribbon, I embossed the top of the box with Sue Wilson's Cascading Hearts A4 embossing folder.
I was very relieved that she totally loved the jewellery.
I have now become a little bit addicted to making jewellery and thankfully it works alongside Card Making quite nicely, I am now able to make both the card and the gift.
Let me know what you think,
Crafty Hugs,
Sandra xx


  1. Wow absolutely fantastic as well as beautiful, your mum in law is very lucky to have you spoil her with wonderful gifts like these.
    Is there no end to your talents I ask myself you should be very proud of yourself producing beautiful things such as these, you really are a clever bunny!
    Do hope you are feeling bright and breezy today, we have some lovely sunshine so I am sending you a huge bagful to brighten your day a little.

    With love and hugs

  2. Sandra your pieces are stunning, your mother - in law couldn't be anything but pleased with her gift, I do t know about you but find running my fingers through the box of beads trying to find the right one is so chilling and des tresses me anyway. Beautiful box too. Hazel x

  4. Hi Sandra,
    What a lovely gift! You are a clever girl! I love the box you made to put the jewellery in too. I remember seeing some jewellery you made before and it was also lovely! All I can manage , like Lynda, is stick pins. Table and chairs arrived. Information said - two people should be able to assemble this table in 15 minutes! We looked at one another knowingly! However 17 minutes later we had a table - and we're still talking! Hope that makes you smile!
    Love Myra xx
