I've been busy making things!

I've made quite a few items recently - including several pairs of earrings, two beaded lanyards and a couple of keyrings! I've made all these from materials that I've reclaimed from old jewellery - for example necklaces that needed to be restrung, broken items of jewellery from which I've salvaged beads that are themselves in usable condition.  Here's a selection of the new items:

There's a bit of a Valentine's Day theme with the latest keyrings:

this keyring can be found in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop here

 and this one can be found here. You can browse all the keyrings and lanyards here. (The new lanyards aren't in the shop yet!)

Several of the pairs of earrings are longer than I normally make

This photo includes a pair of vintage earrings that I repaired (including replacing the earring hooks) which are now for sale in the Crafty Green Magpie Etsy shop here.

The other earrings in the photo are all now in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop, you can browse all the earrings in the shop here.

I've just made some Christmas decorations out of earrings that were either odd or had lost their earring hooks. These won't be in the shop until September, but they've always been popular items so far and also they're nice and easy to make when I have a few spare minutes!
