Jingle Jangle...

... a brand new... erm... bracelet... well, it was supposed to rhyme with bangle but this isn't a bangle, it is a bracelet... although, what is the difference between the two I wonder? I am thinking that a bangle is solid and a bracelet is made up from chain links? Ah well, whatever, this particular thingy I have made is certainly full of jingle and jangle LOL I have had this idea mooching about for months and I just haven't had the chance to have a little play and make it... so, yesterday afternoon I settled down to listen to the radio (Johnny Walker's Sounds of the 70's) and got cracking on this concoction of bits and bobs.



Now, I don't know about you but I rather like all that Idea-ology stuff and some of it is just crying out to be made into something to wear - and if you look at the Compendium of Curiosities book (by the Duke of Distress) there are a fair few piccies of delightful jewellry made using Idea-ology... so I took inspiration from these pics and made something for me to wear.




I have a few little trinketty bits hanging about that I haven't wanted to commit to one piece of artwork that I have made... for example, the little pewter charm - I picked this up on Covent Garden Market yonks ago and it has been waiting patiently to be used... inset into the base of the charm is a little blue stone that looks like Lapis Lazuli - it probably isn't but that sounded good LOL Oh and it has a hallmark on it too... it says either JOL or JOC or SOL or SOC... not sure if that means anything... ooh, how fab would it be if it were a lost relic from a thousnad years ago and it is worth £20million-squillion pounds!!! Ah, wishful thinking ROFL




Apart from the rest of the Idea-ology there are also a few other bits and bobs I have collected... the teensy brass buzzy bee - is by Vintag; a 7Gypsies timey-coggy-thingy which I have no idea what it is ... oh and some bits from a broken necklace I found in a junk shop. To "fill in" some of the gaps where bigger charms are, I have added Baubles and Snaps on Jump Rings... I think they look quite cool!




Anyways, that is my latest make - I am off to make a necklace now while I am in the mood for fiddly jumprings and pliers LOL Thanks for looking... have a LURVEly day.... ahhhaaa, did you see what I did there... lurve, you know, cos it is the day of lurve ROFL ... TTFN!

Great jewellery piece, love all the trinkets/embellishments. Think I would need to buy a stack more Idea-ology to make myself a piece, then again what a great excuse for a purchase, although there is too much new stuff I need first LOL. Tracy Evans x

Blimey I'm waaaay behind with my visiting again and the worst bit is I've been missing lots of gorgeous makes!

This is fabulous Hels and is going to look great adorning your wrist or you could send it over here and let it adorn mine instead, lol!
