My Latest Jewelry Designs

For the past few years, I’ve been putting together some “original” jewelry. I put that in quotation marks because, for the most part, I use existing pieces, either from a thrift shop, clearance sale, or craft store.

Red and Gold NecklaceThis is my most recent creation. I used a pendant and matching bracelet made by Monet (and bought on clearance) along with some findings and chain bought at a craft store. I could use a different chain; it’s really hard to match the color gold if you don’t have the piece right in front of you at the store. That’s mostly hidden under my hair right now.

Imperial Snowflake PendantThis next piece was laser-cut by my husband. If you don’t recognize the symbol, it’s the Imperial snowflake emblem worn by the Empire’s officers in the Star Wars films. It’s cut out of wood, and I used chain and findings from the craft store.

He was very romantic when he gave it to me, and said “Don’t say I never gave you anything.” Sweet, huh? But I love that it’s one of the first things he cut on his laser cutter just for me.

By the way, I usually buy jewelry findings when it’s either on sale or I have a coupon. The Monet necklace and bracelet were each priced at $22, but I paid far less on sale AND with a coupon around the holidays.

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have two cats and a husband.
