For the fifth day of A Gift a Day, I made a necklace, bracelet, and matching earrings for Winter.
This is the same design that I used for Liberty’s birthday necklace, which you can see in pink here.
Necklace, Bracelet, and Earrings
earring hooks (I bought these at Walmart last year, 42 in a package for $2)
earring findings (I bought these at Walmart last year, 100 in a package, for $2. There are two different kinds inside; I used some for the necklace)
beads (the green beads came from Michael’s; the silver beads are garage sale beads but you should be able to find something similar)
chain with clasp (I purchased this last year from Etsy from this shop. You’ll get the best price if you buy a package of 10. I’ve bought several wonderful items from that shop for gift making).
elastic bead cording (I found this at Michael’s)
A word about tools: Your husband may already have these tools in his tool box; mine does. He doesn’t mind me borrowing the pliers, but for some reason he minds when I borrow his wire cutters. I bought myself a pair of wire cutters for $1 at a garage sale in October 2012. Garage sales are great places to find tools for very little.
It took me exactly one hour to make all three of these.
$5.50 for everything. I bought everything except for the green beads and the elastic last year. I purchased the green beads 40% off months ago at Michael’s.
