more pretties

So I’ve been making some more pretties to wear! (plus some for gifts!) I found most of the findings on Etsy, and glued, jump ringed, and wrapped my heart out.


I have been having so much fun making them while watching How I Met Your Mother. (which is hil-wait for it-arious!)

I’m on a bit of a jewelry making spree, and loving it!

These wrapped earrings are made from…paper clips! Would you ever have guessed? I saw them here and had to try them asap.


  1. How super gorgeous! Where did you get the floral cabs from on the right of that top picture? I love that large mustard floral piece!

  2. Hi Jess! I have been MIA for a couple of months and have missed so much!! I love every single piece!! Especially the paper clip earrings, really cool!

  3. Wow, you really have a gift for jewelry making (too!)! Dang! I’m in LOVE with the faceted orangy earrings. It’s difficult to pick faves — they really all are very special and beautiful. Well done!!!

  4. Those are gorgeous! I would LOVE a tutorial on how you made those. Jewelry making is so foreign to me.

  5. Loving the jewelry, especially the earrings! I also love How I Met Your Mother. My new favorite is Two Broke Girls. Have a great day!

  6. I love the jewlry. I love the ‘HIMYM’ reference too!

  7. Hey, I have been (silently) following your blog for a while now. I love it! Love the jewelry you made, too, especially the paper clip earrings. I actually tried to make those before Christmas (found it on Pinterest) but I didn’t like them. Yours look so pretty though!! Maybe I’ll try again.

  8. Soooooo cute! I’m obsessed with those gold leaf earrings! Where did you get the leaves?

  9. Love them all. The yellow dangly ones are speaking to me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love them the most of all.

  10. I do love those wrapped earrings too! Love the new cute Amelia dress! Love the name and the lady too.

  11. I love the color of your chains and those cute aqua beads. What store(s) did you use on etsy? There’s always so many to sort though and I get so overwhelmed!

  12. I love your jewelry making… ๐Ÿ™‚ And we just started watching How I Met Your Mother over the last month and a half… we’re nearly through season 4, and I LOVE it. I find myself quoting it constantly, and occasionally giving myself self-high-fives. Nice.

  13. Totally wish I could wear earrings right about now. Do you ever see clip-on thingys?

  14. you’ve been busy! i love everything you’ve made– especially the paper clips earrings. i never would have guessed.
    i am a huge HIMYM fan too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. If you have time, I would love to see a little jewelry making how-to on the blog! These pieces are so cute, but I don’t know where to begin when it comes to that sort of stuff. I walked through the jewelry section at Michael’s the other day, but it’s a little overwhelming. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Shabby Apple? How did I not know about this?! What an amazing source for beautiful fun flirty clothes (and won’t break the bank-especially with the 20%off!)
    Thank you (I think!) for sharing!

  17. love it! Now I want to try some jewelry making too ๐Ÿ™‚
    love all your outfit posts & sewing projects btw.

  18. thanks gals! I’ll see what I can do for a little mini jewelry tutorial-and Melanie-I haven’t seen clip ons while I’ve been surfing, but I’m sure they’re out there!
