A Year in Jewelry Project- Week 1 and 2

This year I have decided to challenge myself by joining a year of jewelry project. One piece of jewelry for 52 weeks. We are now in week 2 only 50 more pieces of jewelry to come up with.

My first week is a bracelet made of Swarovski crystals and fire polished crystals in a right angle weave (RAW)

"Crystal Beginnings"

For week 2, I made a necklace with piece of shell that I have had for years. I am still learning how to wire wrap but I like how it turned out.
