Monday my son heads back to school. Saturday he finally agreed to get his hair cut. This was seriously epic. The guy has CrAzY hair. Long, blond, curly, and OUT. TO. HERE.

That adventure, by far, upstaged going on a photo hike. I wish I could show Before/After shots – he’s shy. He had four inches cut and it’s still Samson hair. When he got all the weight cut off, it got even curlier. Take my word for it.. it is fabulous.

But… it took a good chunk of the morning and by the time we were done, it was just too late and too stinkin’ hot. To compensate for not getting out on a hike, I instead stayed home and dabbled in another favorite pastime… making jewelry.

This little hobby won’t make me rich or famous, but it is relaxing. I typically just make things for myself. I have gifted a few friends and family with items, but I don’t think any of it’s good enough to do anything more than that. And… I worry that the people I do give pieces to, think that I’m just being cheap.

I’ve been participating in another meme wherein I share 30 Days of Shamelessness. I’m skipping around today and sharing Day #7: share your efforts at something you don’t think you do well.

This week’s photos are from my latest attempts at jewelry making.

(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, Nikon CoolPix S205 and/or iPhone4)

  1. I have a whole slew of jewelry making supplies sitting in my craft room just waiting to be torn into! This post made me even more antsy to get it out and going. Those buttons are absolutely stunning!


  2. Lovely necklace! I make jewelry too, it’s it relaxing and fun to wear what you just created!

    Aww, I wish we could before/after pictures of his hair cut!!


  3. Very pretty jewelry and great pictures. I’ve tried making jewelry but I just don’t have that delicate touch that it takes. I imagine with skills like that you could be a brain surgeon. LOL
